A charming boutique villa that oozed ambience. I felt like Rudyard Kipling in Africa. Our room was furnished in antiquated (dare I say, 'safari' style) furniture. The wardrobe/chest of drawers was a beautifully crafted leather and wooden chest on wheels, the writing desk a portable wooden chest with leather inlaid writing surface and the wooden framed chairs foldable with stretched leather seats. A peaceful central patio/courtyard area fills the villa with light from the glass roofed top that opens during the day allowing the little local sparrows in. View from the top of the villa is great and it is 500m from the Bus station.

After three days in hot Marrakech we got the bus to the seaside. Unlike Marrakech there is a constant strong wind in essaouira which makes it a haven for windsurfers and kiteboarders. Its a very relaxed seaside resort where all the houses have whitewashed walls and blues shutters.
The beach is a hive of activity and every morning we walked from the gates of the Medina to Diabat. Camels and horses were once essential for Moroccan agriculture but ...
... all MBA was complimenting one of their architects, but no, they changed the name to Mogador, meaning "wall" in Berber and in reference to the ramparts surrounding the medina. However, as soon as independence arrived, the Moroccans changed it back to Essaouira.....just like they changed back the roundabout rule!
Mark and I were in a lazy, wandering, rambling kind of mood, so we headed for the port first, which is just outside the ...
It was an early morning rise for our day trip to Essaouira. We were both feeling a little half hearted about it all as it was a 2.5 hour journey each way and not knowing what our guide was going to be like was off putting. When we heard the front door bell ring we made our way downstairs and overjoyed to find Mustapha waiting for us; instantly our moods lifted.
The 2.5 hour journey went in no time with Mustapha opening up ...
