Charming duplex apartment, renovated with taste. Easy access, nice & comfortable, sunny with no facing neighbour, ideally located in the heart of the medina. 2/3 bedrooms & 3 living rooms, can accomodate 5 adults maximum + 2 children (less than 140cm!) + 1 baby. Terrace & panoramic medina view.

The space
Duplex apartment (2 levels), at the 3rd floor and at an angle, overlooking the Casbah district, close to the skala walls.
Very light and without any facing neighbour, with a large terrace and stunning panoramic view of the medina.
This area of the medina is safe and lively, and the apartment is pretty quiet with double-glass windows.

Renovated with excellent taste, using the local traditions, arts and techniques. For example the floor in traditional bejmat bricks, and a superb "zellige" carpet in the lobby, made by a souiri artist. The place is also finely decorated with numerous antique furniture and lamps, procured locally step by step along my stays...

There are 2 bedrooms with double (matrimonial) beds: Sheherazade room is street view with a stunning real antique sculpted cedar door as entrance and including a large dressing, and the Marrakesh room has sculpted tadelakt pink wall and overlooks an inside court. An oriental living room at the upper (terrace) level can be used as a 3rd bedroom (1 single adult bed). There are also 2 additional mattresses for children (140cm), and a baby foldable bed - so it can accomodate up to 7 persons, including 5 adults maximum.

Double "hammam" style doors open on the bathroom, which is in tadelakt, with a shower. There is a hairdryer. The kitchen is also inspired from local traditional styles, with awesome genuine pink marble from the Atlas... It is equiped with a large fridge, induction plates to cook, a micro-wave/oven, a boiler, a coffeemaker, with all necessary kitchen ware. The whole apartment is fully equipped including bedsheets and towels.

The small fireplace in the main living room can accomodate a warming fire in the winter (firewood provided) - but small mobile electric heaters are also available in case of need.

You will also find there lots of things to read too, magazines, a selection of books: novels, essays and poetry, photo books and travel guides, and even games and stories to read at bedtime for children... There is also a bluetooth sound system for you to connect to your mobile device music.

On the terrace, there is a pergola for shade and 2 lounge chairs (the terrace is waiting for a soon-to-come renovation, but very quiet and with stunning views...)

Where you’ll be

Essaouira, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco

The Casbah district is the old administrative area in the North-West of the medina. The apartment is on "Derb Laallouj" street and litterally overlooks the Chrib Atay square, so it could not be more central and better located!
It is a lively area, with numerous restaurants and stores, all amenities are very close.

French citizen of the world, global traveller both for work and for pleasure.
After several years in California, I spent 6 years on humanitarian missions in many different countries. I am now settled back in Europe, working for an environmental NGO.
My husband also worked for a long time in the humanitarian relief sector, and we have 2 lovely children.

I love medieval history, travel literature, genealogy and graphic novels. And I cherish every place on Earth which is at crossroads, where different cultures have met and keep meeting, where those cultures came to discover and appreciate each other, where they can even mix up and take the best in each other, places of mutual respect, tolerance and peace...
