**Pets are not allowed, thank you for your understanding.
**Smoking is possible on the terrace only.
**Please do not take to the seaside our white toilet towels, nor the deckchairs. You have forgotten your beach towels? Ask Safia !
~~ PLEASE note that 24 H are necessary to prepare the apartment in the best conditions for you ! So renting for the same da may be difficult, sorry. ~~
L appartement correspond en tous points à sa description. La terrasse à une vue mer un peu discrète car la vegetation en face prend beaucoup de place. Mais cette terrasse est plein sud l après midi et à l abri du vent Elle est parfaite ! Le quartier est agreable et tous les commercants alentours tres accueillants. Situé à 10mn à pieds de la Medina c est le refuge ideal après une immersion dans le souk bruyant Mais tellement vivant ! Impression generale : Tres bonne et un grand merci à Safia la perle d Essaouira pour son accueil !
Merci Sylvie ... Et je transmets vos compliments à Safia qui va apprécier !
Les palmiers de notre voisine sont taillés régulièrement mais le climat exceptionnel d'Essaouira favorise effectivement leur croissance. Ce jardin est aussi un refuge pour toutes sortes d'oiseaux - ce qui est bien agréable ...
Appartement très agréable, propre, spacieux, bien équipé et idéalement placé pour découvrir la ville.
Nous avons apprécié la proximité de petits commerces où l'on trouve tout le nécessaire.
Le festival de musique gnawas est un fabuleux moment !
Essaouira is the perfect spot to enjoy beach, sun, ocean and life. This apartment is situated not in the medina, which we really liked (it is only a 13min walk though). Close to the beach and with shops / restaurants just around the corner it is a perfect match. Lots of space, clean and a great flat - don't miss it! The view from the rooftop is stunning - thanks again for making this place available!
My friends and I very much enjoyed staying in Muriel and Hugo's apartment in Essaouira. The location is wonderful... a nice walk along the beach into the medina and close to shops and local, non-touristy restaurants. The light coming into the apartment through the sliding glass doors with a view of the lovely terrace is worth the stay!
The housekeeper Safia will prepare delicious little "tagines" and keeps the apartment immaculate. A good address in Essaouira, especially for someone living in Marrakech! I will definitely return.
Je recommande vivement leur appartement qui est vraiment superbe quartier calme et (website hidden) cerise sur le gateau c'est Saphia qui vous bichonne tous les jours petit plus son tajine. merci a vous deux . Anne et Pascal
Muriel & Hugo were extremely good communicating before and during out stay which I liked. Safia who looks after the flat for them is very sweet, extremely friendly and very helpful indeed. The flat is lovely and in a very good location. We loved our time there and it was especially nice to come back and 'chill' in our own space. Slightly noisy at times as it's in a local neighbourhood with dogs, people and the usual but nothing too bad.
Morocco is different from Europe as people live outside at night ... Our area is very calm compared to the Medina !
Dogs can be noisy too when cats and / or seagulls decide to taunt them ... but it does not happen very often. And seagulls are the symbol of the city of Essaouira !
