One-Off Feature

Riad des Palmiers is a beautiful riad situated just within the city walls in what was originally the Algerian Quarter of the medina, overlooking not only the medina but also the esplanade and beach and, beyond, both the fishing port and the old island prison of Mogador.

General Info

This luminous villa has considerable style and period charm. Offering flexible accommodation to suit groups or families up to 12 people, couples or individuals, the house can be rented either in its entirety, by the apartment (of which there are 3 laid out over 3 floors), or by particular room. Almost unique for a riad in the medina, it not only abuts the Medina walls and has uninterrupted views to the beach and the bay, but it also has a garden with its own mature palm trees and a sizeable plunge pool which is fed from the riad’s own private well. The villa has been meticulously renovated to retain as many of its original features as possible and it is decorated throughout with a mix of fabrics and antique furniture and artefacts sourced not only from the souks and markets of the region but also from the wider Islamic world.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

As a visitor, you may be there simply for the beautiful weather, scenery, and laid-back atmosphere. But scratch the surface and you will find a bustling city going about its business independently of the tourist trade. Indeed, Essaouira has plenty to do if you decide to seek it out, centered largely around the city’s wonderful and gregarious people. There are plenty of activities on offer, both cultural and sporting, including windsurfing and kitesurfing, quadbiking, camel and horseriding, golf and cookery courses. Spend time trawling the medina, buy fresh food in the souk, lunch in some fabulous restaurants, stroll around the battlements of the northern ramparts, visit the town’s woodworkers, pop in to some art galleries; something for everyone here! Once in Essaouira, most places can be easily reached on foot. The Medina itself can be traversed in about 20 minutes.

Accommodation Details

Interior Details
The riad can be rented as a whole house or by the apartment. All 3 apartments sleep up to 4 people. Each apartment comprises 2 double bedrooms with ensuite shower or bathroom and fully fitted kitchen; in addition, the 1st and ground floors have a salon, whereas the 2nd floor has a private sunbathing terrace. The 2nd floor apartment can also be let on a room-only basis with shared use of the kitchen and sun terrace. Daily maid service is provided, and meals can also be prepared by arrangement; however, breakfast is not normally included. The whole riad can be rented for a per person /week price, based on minimum of 6 people staying or for a per day price (minimum rental 3 days).

Exterior Details
There is a large roof terrace on the top floor available to all, and a garden with a 10 sq.metre plunge pool (which is very unusual for Essaouira and the only one in the Medina). Please note the garden can be accessed by the ground and 1st floor apartments, but not the 2nd.

Further Details
Essaouira is generally acclaimed as one of the most enchanting spots along Morocco's Atlantic coast. It enjoys this status because of a unique combination of factors: its sunny and temperate climate which hardly varies from one month to the next, the generosity and warmth of its inhabitants, its inheritance of treasures both architectural and cultural and, most crucially, the liberal and tolerant atmosphere which so strongly characterises the mood of its streets. Here, fishermen, locals, tourists especially Moroccan and European, merchants, craftsmen, musicians, and artists of all kinds come to share their work, perspectives and amity. Essaouira enjoys sun all year round – on average, 320 days of the year to be precise. The sea temperature is also fairly constant, going from 16
