Villa Quieta is the very definition of a home from home, with a relaxed, friendly ambience created by owners Imane and Mourad. The villa is a beautiful example of traditional Moroccan architecture, finished with furniture made by local craftsmen and women. However, there are the modern touches too - not least free, fast WiFi throughout the building.
You arrive at the pool through lush gardens, while just metres away lies a stretch of beach from which you can enjoy a host of water sports. Alternatively, the sands inland can be explored on camelback or by quad bike. Then, in the evening, back to a villa rated among the very best places to stay in Essaouira and owners who could neither be more proud, nor more welcoming. Just don’t tell too many people, this is one of Morocco’s best kept secrets.
