Lovely 4 Bed home swap in Essaouira, Morocco

FIVE COLUMNS is a beautiful 200-year-old house set in the Chbanat area, near to the main gate of Bab Marrakech in the ancient medina of Essaouira, famous for its textile workshops. This luxurious house is like a home from home, with every detail designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

This friendly local community has an array of shops with plenty of helpful shopkeepers on hand to provide all you will need for your stay. There are bakeries and fruit and vegetable stalls all within a 5-minute stroll as well as cafés, restaurants, the beach and harbour all within a 10-minute walk.

The house has recently gone through a complete renovation and has been sympathetically restored, retaining all the original features such as the sand stone columns, Thuya wood ceilings and the amazing flooring of black and white traditional tiles in the courtyard.

The house is filled with a mix of vintage and modern European furniture and lighting with some beautiful Moroccan antiques. There are 4 double bedrooms comfortably sleeping 8 people, all with en suite wet room bathrooms.

Essaouira known as the most laid back resort on the Atlantic coast enjoys a mild and pleasant climate all year round. Here you will find a relaxed white washed town with narrow streets and an amazing lively Medina. Unspoilt white sandy beaches with some of the world’s best windsurfing and a fantastic bustling harbour. You can spend hours in the old medina browsing at the local craftsmen in their workshops, art galleries, shops and boutiques.
