Hotel Overview

“Villa Maroc is one of Essaouira's most special places to stay so it's no surprise to find its rural sister is just as appealing. Good food, charmingly put together rooms and cheerful longterm staff are key elements in both however Les Jardins is located in forested countryside outside the town and has none of the medina disturbances. Guests sleep in rooms off a generous courtyard where morning and evening meals are served. BBQ lunch can be enjoyed by the larger of two pools - under straw parasols or canopied seating areas, among oversized lanterns and urns. A hip, contemporary entertaining space with a bar proffers more places to languish and a smaller pool has quiet reading zones. The joy is you can find privacy even when the place is full albeit under the watchful eye of the very curious resident peacock who parades around on the rooftops surveying the scene.”
