Nestled in the countryside in a Mediterranean-style walled garden, lies the beautiful guesthouse, Les Jardins de Villa Maroc. This gorgeous haven is just 15 minutes from the vibrant Medina of Essaouira, yet it is completely private tranquil retreat, an ideal spot for a totally relaxing holiday at any time of year.
This lovely stone-clad villa has 3 spacious bedrooms overlooking a pretty courtyard; the Figuier Suite is perfect for families, with a double bedroom leading through to a twin bedroom via a large dressing room; the Patio Room is perfect for couples, and upstairs is Minzah, a pretty double room overlooking the surrounding forests of olive, almond and native argan and thuya trees.
There is a large communal dining room and pretty salon for lounging around in, as well as a lovely covered patio for dining al fresco, but the piece de resistance has to be the private swimming pool and its beautiful shaded terrace, a divine spot to relax in listening to nothing but the swaying palms and gentle birdsong.
For a scrumptious barbecue lunch, simply stroll across to the wonderful Les Jardins Restaurant, just a stone’s throw away. Here you will discover a huge flower-filled garden, complete with a fabulous aquamarine heated swimming pool, extensive sun terraces with comfy sun loungers and tables, as well as a contemporary-style dining room and a small boutique. This restaurant is open daily for visitors, many of whom are staying at its charming sister riad Villa Maroc in the Medina and fancy a chilled out day lazing by the pool and being waited on hand and foot.
Les Jardins de Villa Maroc can be rented as 3 individual rooms, but we think it’s just perfect for a family or group of friends looking for a private villa with pool. Your very own luxury Moroccan home in the heart of the countryside yet just a short drive from the beach, markets and restaurants in Essaouira.
