Maison Elma is a unique, open courtyard house in the very center of the unesco listed medina of Essaouira, Morocco.
The house is on two floors with terraces on two floors. The rooms are organized around the courtyard, making it very open and spacious. You have your own peace of sky, and tranquility and can hear the ocean at every time. In the months from May to November it is nice to enjoy the fresh air and temperatures allow to stay outside on the terraces until late at night.
Facilities include a bedroom with a bathroom on each floor, kitchen, living room with fireplace and the two terraces. Internet, clothes washing and cleaning is possible for a moderate fee during your stay.
The house is behind the fish and vegetables market which makes shopping extremely easy and pleasant. Just next door are two Hammams for an authentic bath experience.
We are happy to guide and assist you during your stay.
We speak Arabic, French and English.
We look forward to welcome you in our open terrace house and tranquil atmosphere.
About the city:
Welcome to Essaouira! No longer a mid-1960's hippy hangout (Jimi Hendrix used to party here); Essaouira has evolved into a still-undiscovered gem of pristine beaches, great windsurfing, laid back nightspots and hearty restaurants. The narrow streets keep traffic to a minimum and encourage walking. With little effort you'll find yourself walking past the multi-colored doors, tall stucco-colored houses and the eclectic mix of euro-tourism and weather-worn locals.
