On the edge of a Berber village, near the vast argan forest, my house is a rural retreat. The studio apartment is situated in the garden, with the swimming pool at the other end of the garden, behind my own house.
minimum stay 3 nights. Discount for 1 week or over.
I have lived in Morocco for 20 years - 12 years in Essaouira and, since 2006, in the Berber village of Imintagant just 15 minutes from Essaouira. It's a far cry from central London where I was born and lived until moving here, but I love the pace of life, the quiet friendliness of the people in the village, the donkeys, cattle and camels who belong to my neighbours,but wander freely about, always ready to be given some leftover vegetable peelings or garden prunings. It was originally the Moroccan Gnawa music which beckoned me here, and I started the annual Gnawa and World Music Festival of Essaouira in 1998. I enjoy going back to London 2 or 3 times a year just for a week or so, to see family, friends, and take in the big city life, and the English countryside - love those huge trees and round white woolly sheep. It's also an opportunity to stock up on Marmite and bacon, but I'm always glad to get back to my home in Morocco.
