Holiday Rental House -

Dar Nicola is situated in a prime location down a lovely,quiet, quaint street in the heart of Essaouira's medina. Yet once inside the door the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. It is perfect situated to visit the busy souks selling jewellery, spices, carpets, fresh food and moroccan artefacts.

Our house is set over 3 floors. We have 3 bedrooms-2 double and 1 twin bedded. Two open plan landing areas, with a large living/dining room, 1 bathroom with WC/shower and 1 WC. On the top floor is a fully equipped kitchen with French windows opening out onto the first of 2 private terraces both which have panoramic views of the sea, hills and medina where you can sunbathe or enjoy watching the sun go down with a relaxing glass of wine. We provide all bedding and towels and Samira our cleaner visits each day to clean.

About the neighbourhood
The port and the ramparts are steeped in local history and great to explore. The medina has lots of lovely cafes and restaurants and greats great stopping in the souk, whether it’s carpets, art, food or gifts. There are festivals on in Essaouira throughout the year. the main festival being the GNAWA festival in June where musicians from all over Morocco come to play-a great experience!!!!!!!!
Getting around
The medina is pedestrians only, so great to walk around, if you arrive by car you park just outside the medina walls and our house is about 2-3 minutes walk. You can walk to the beach in 5 mins.
Supra tours bus to Marrakesh and other cities is just 5 mins away and is a great service.
Local taxis are just outside the medina wall also.
