One of two 2-bedroomed villas, set in 3 acre plot. Two double bedrooms, 1 with double bed, 1 with twin singles. Also 2 sofabeds in living area. Fully fitted kitchen area with large fridge-freezer, gas hob & oven, dining table, open plan living space with fireplace. Washing machine in utility room. Large outside terrace with ceramic tiled dining table, ideal for sunbathing. Easy access to poolside area with saltwater pool and state-of-the-art Jacuzzi spa! Pool heating extra outside main season.
The two villas are located next to the main gates in a large 3 acre plot where the main house also has some letting rooms. Fabulous panoramic sea views and bordered by tuya forest. One villa is surrounded by a fence to keep dogs/pets in/out and both have sun terraces for outside eating/sunbathing with traditional Moroccan tiled tables and chairs. Fully equipped kitchens. Bathrooms with tadelakt/tiled walls, washbasin, shower and toilet. There are very friendly dogs on the property cared for by the resident guardian. There's a large heated outdoor swimming pool and a jacuzzi hot tub, with a large poolhouse which has a large open fireplace and is ideal for entertaining. Huge terraced area for practising yoga, martial arts, or just playing! Landscaping has just started but there's lots of space for kids to play and enjoy the rest of the grounds. Very peaceful and set off the main road down an unmade piste, which is in pretty good condition and suitable for driving in regular car. Only 15 minutes drive into the nearby town of Essaouira which is one of the gems of Morocco with its medina/souks, fishing harbour and Portuguese port, the 'windy city' and the miles of golden beaches north and south are famous for watersports: surfing, kitesurfing, sailing, and with dune buggies for hire, camels and horses, and lots of things to do and see, including art exhibitions and local crafts and jewellery markets.
Anywhere around the property apart from the main house unless booking a room in this.
Interaction with guests
For the next year we'll only be at the property from June to mid-September. After June 2017, yes, mostly we'll be living in the main house where we also have rooms to let by prior arrangement.
Other things to note
Two dogs are resident on site. Very friendly but for those who don't like dogs, they can be kept away, and one of the small houses is surrounded by a fence so that the dogs can't bother you.
To enjoy themselves but also to respect the peaceful environment, especially late at night. There is no street lighting on the piste, so careful driving required, especially at night. Guests will be expected to follow the house rules with regard to waste disposal to support recycling and avoiding pollution and also to conserve water.

We are a British couple with residency in Morocco and the UAE, where we have a successful business running courses in applied positive psychology and well-being, leading to international qualifications. We train Clinical Hypnotherapists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Coaches, and run a Licensed Centre for the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), as well as Dr Paul Ekman International courses in EQ. We love the arts, performing, creative, music, etc. and have a wide range of eclectic interests. We're in the process of gradually moving over full-time to our place in Morocco. The two small houses are available for rentals, preferably a minimum of a week, during the next year or so, and the main house is available too until next June, and rooms in it will also be available for some of the time whilst we're living there. After next summer (2017) we'll have a full time couple living on site instead of the current resident guardian, to look after us and our guests and we'll only let out the 'Gatehouse' villa, and some of the downstairs bedrooms in the main house unless we're away, when the large house will also be available.
