We stayed here in October 2016. It is not easy to find! If you are coming from Agadir or Marrakesh, we could not find any signage indicating where it was once we were in the nearest village. However if you overshoot and end up driving from the Essaouira direction, there is a sign on the right indicating the Domaine and...

Thaks for your review and sorry for the track which is unfortunatelly out of our remit. But you liked the calm and the staff of our Domaine and that's two of our strong points!

We spent three nights in the Domaine for a wedding. Our riad was spacious, clean, simply but beautifully decorated and felt like great value for money (the shower rooms were particularly striking!). Perfect for a group. The staff were friendly and helpful and the grounds were a lush setting for the wedding. We had a fantastic weekend around the pool...

It was a pleasure to help Isaac and Christina preparing this event. The garden is obviously charming for a wedding, and the riads perfect for so many friends. Thanks to all of you for your kindness and your joy of life.

Surpassed all expectations, felt like a 5 star holiday. We are a family of 5 and we all had a brilliant time. The pool was just as beautiful as the photos, service great, able to eat by the pool or in our Riad. Staff always very helpful. Went riding camels on the beach which our 7 year old chose for...

The 2 km of dirt road lend a sense of adventure. The arrival is a pleasure, with spacious gardens, trees, and lots of space. The separate bungalows are peaceful and adequate, especially with the kitchen in each one. Here and there are facilities for ping pong, boules, etc. The meals are basic and good, and the swimming pool is lovely.

Sure the road is quite an adventure but as you said once you arrived the nature and the peace is a real pleasure. And our riads are obviously part of the charm. Thanks for this nice review, we are it pleased you!

It's 10min of drive from Essaouira, lost in the small village, with rough path leading to it. The surprise lies behind entrance, warm welcome, immense well maintained garden, with swimming pool in the middle, surrounded by couple of riads (small houses) with usually 4 rooms, kitchen, sitting - dining area. Riads can be rented as a whole but even by...

This is a hidden gem, our Riad was extremely comfortable right by the pool. We are a family of 5 and we had plenty of space in our own villa.

We arrive Essaouira quite late at night and if the domaine did not provide any directions, there would be no way of finding this place because google map doesn't give you proper directions.
