“Simply breathtaking”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Me and my family (7 of us in total) spent a week in this amazing villa!, our 4 young children loved it so much they didnt want to leave. The swimming pool is wonderful and the caretaker cleans the pool every single day . In the villa you have a playstation with a number of games and dvds to watch (i advise if possible take some children freindly dvds as most are for adults) there are also board games so our children were not bored for even a minute. The view from the villa is simply breath taking. If you want a very relaxing holiday then this is the villa to go for. You definitly will need a car (i advise you book your car rental online before you arrive so they will have your car ready for you , we didnt do that and had to wait for nearly an hour till our car arrived at the airport) sky scanner is a good site for car rentals. Also make sure to have your driving license on you at all times as essouria is a very safe place and there are alot of traffic police around who ask to see your drivers license. The villa is a small village called oonagha which is 20 km away from the medina , that is where you will find the beach and the souk etc, there is a supermarket there (carrefour) which has everything, the local shops are about 3-5 minute drive from the villa and you can get a few basics such as milk, tuna, freshly baked morrcan bread which is delicious. The people of essouria are very nice and easy going, you do need to keep an eye on how much things costs and the odd person trying to swindle you (they do it in a very polite way by the way). So back to the villa, it is massive and can fit 15 people upwards, it is very clean and well kept, the kitchen has most things needed for cooking and you will need to buy and bring provisions to the villa. Ilyas (the owner of the villa) is a really nice and easy going person (as are the rest of the people of essouria lol) , he is extremely helpful and will attend to all of your needs. He has a helper (mustapha) who is there to help your stay be as easy as possible he can offer advice and also take you around the town and to other places in morrocco (but make sure to give him tips as that is outside of his job description) . Hope this helps everyone who is thinking of renting this villa out . We definitly plan to return to essouria and would love to return to this wonderful villa.

In short the pros are, very spacious villa for a cheap price, excellent pool which is cleaned every day, alot of in house entertainment (playstation , board games) , kitchen fit for cooking purposes, cleaning lady is also available for hire (but ask ilyas for advice of how much you should pay her per day) , donkey on site if you like pets (the caretaker , mohammed who also is a very nice man will let your children ride on the donkey! He also brings gifts from time to time , he brought us fresh mint and coriander and a sour milk drink . Many rooms have en suite bathrooms if not all of them , there is a table outside by the pool with a sun shade (very much needed for the hot weather ), easy dealings with everyone involved - ilyas the owner, mustapha his helper (whi collects you from the airport) and mohmmed the groundsman.

Cons - not really related to the villa itself but to its location

It is 20 km away from the medina so you definitily need a car (however the drive is very scenic and beautiful)

You will need food (there are some restaurants which the local people eat at just about 5-7 km away from the villa, you can eat cous cous, tagine etc there). I suggest taking food with you as carefour is very expensive (more expensive then the uk!) if possible take tins of tuna, tea coffee, pasta, rice , kids cereal (thats costs an arm and a leg in essouria)

Thank you ilyas for a wonderful stay ! Hopefully we will all be back to enjoy your wonderful villa in your wonderful town and country.

What a wonderful feedback Shariff! Thank you so much, for sure all your information will be helpful for future guests. Carrefour is more expensive than the others but it's the closet one to the villa. There's another shopping center called "Aswak Salam" to buy food and other things which is less expensive. Thank you for your sweet words about Essaouira and its people, you're more than welcome with your family if you plan to come back !

Great communication with Ilyas who was very helpful, as was his 'people'. Large villa in quiet location, beautiful gardens with your very own donkey - we loved it!
New Supermarket (Carrefour) just 15 mins away towards Essaouira that sells everything, all our needs were met. Great location for Essaouira, car essential. Will definitely consider this villa again especially as EasyJet now has flights from Luton (UK) straight into Essaouira.

This villa is just amazing, many bedrooms, big garden and far from the city with amazing view on nature, 15 minutes away from essaouira, perfect for relaxing, good dvd collecion, video games also, the rooms are all clean, of course the swimming pool is just great.
as we arrived to Ounagha we met the guy in charge of showing us the villa, we payed the caution, at the end of our trip we got it back since everything was okay and no damage we payed the extra for the housekeeper, eveything went perfect, highly recommand it !
