Moroccan town villa near the beach – Conveniently situated within the walls of Essaouira old town, Riad Tamara is a traditionally built riad or town villa featuring a truly charming courtyard garden and private plunge pool. It has been meticulously renovated to retain as many of its original features as possible and it is decorated throughout with a mix of fabrics, antique furniture and artefacts sourced from the region. The combination of original tiles and metal work helps create a true and colourful impression of ancient Moroccan style.

Riad Tamara offers flexible accommodation spread over three floors, each with traditional open air galleried landings around the internal courtyard garden, ensuite bedrooms and independent living/kitchenettes to suit groups or extended families. Unique for a house in the Medina (the old town), the courtyard wall abuts the Medina walls and its pool is fed from the villa's private well.    From the terrace you can enjoy wonderful views over the colourful daily market, selling local produce and the sea with the Island of Mogador in the distance; why not hire one of the many privately owned fishing boats from the port for a trip to this island. A stroll at sunset along the ramparts of this UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site is strongly recommended to enjoy spectacular views of the town, its mosque and souks.Within 4 minutes from this villa Essaouira beach is probably one of the most beautiful beaches in all Africa, with miles of superb sand. Camel and horse riding are very popular activities here and so are all water sports, especially those requiring wind and strong currents. In fact, Essaouira prides itself on being the windsurfing capital of Africa.

The Local View
Essaouira never fails to please me every time I come here. Apart from haggling in the Souks which I love, one of the pleasures is walking out at night in the Medina with the many bars and restaurants full of real buzz and atmosphere. This is a self-catering villa and the facilities are perfect for preparing breakfast or light meals, but there is no oven.  So why not forget the shopping and the worry of what to cook for dinner and take a stroll and enjoy the wonderful array of inexpensive restaurants right on your doorstep – that’s what I do when I’m here! An absolute ‘must’ is Restaurant Elizir, which is 15 metres from Riad Tamara; superb food in an intimate atmosphere and one of the best meals I have ever had in Essaouira. Ask Abdul (the house manager) to book a table for you! The medina is 20 metres from the Riad but venture further towards the fish market and the restaurants will serve the freshest fish and seafood you have ever tasted!
