Le Fort de Mogador

Unique and beautiful property near Essaouira, an authentic historical courtyard house with 4 bedrooms. Hammam, heated pool, fully staffed, cook. A perfect family retreat on the Moroccan coast.

Le Fort de Mogador is situated 8km outside of Essaouira, in the heart of a small village at the edge of an argan tree forest. The Atlantic Ocean is very close, with its immense and deserted beaches where the wind from the ocean tempers the Moroccan sunshine.

Le Fort de Mogador reminds us of an ancient fort and exhales a sense of deep harmony, power, beauty and authenticity. It is a quiet place, where time is suspended.

The heart of the house is the riad, a vast inner garden planted with palm trees and bougainvillea. The four bedrooms are all around this courtyard, all spacious and bright. Two bedrooms include a large sitting area. There is one shared bathroom in the courtyard and another bathroom on the garden side.

There is a vast living room with fireplace and a kitchen-style dining room.

The riad is surrounded by magnificent gardens of mimosa, giant cacti, jasmine, papyrus, oleanders, etc..
A staircase leads to a huge terrace bathed in white light, for sunbathing or simple contemplation.
At one corner of the closed garden is a heated swimming pool and steam bath (traditional hammam).

Le Fort de Mogador is managed by a caring caretaker, steward and concierge. Rental fees include staff, housekeeping, cooking of local cuisine and delicious dishes according to your taste.

Everything is organised to make life sweet and mild.

Great little friendly thinks every Day

Bettina Seymour of Villanovo was excellent , this kind of Service is more than excellent. Thanks a lot for the possility to book via Internet and to have such a great Service without the Computer.
Maybe the Owner can Think about changing the Matraze !
And the Pool, if you say Pool in the Winter , it´s nessesary to warm him up a week before , not when we arrived .

Maison très agréable avec belle deco. Excellente cuisinière (mieux qu'en ville!) Bonne situation par rapport au golf et à essaouira mais environs tristounets
Les lits sont très durs et pas à la hauteur d'une villa de ce standing.
Apologies for the delay, we had an extraordinary busy time after returning from Morocco. However, we had a perfect stay at Dar Sabaah. Plain and simple: this house and - particularly - the food prepared and served by Houssine and his lovely family - is a gem! We enjoyed every minute - and every meal.
Decoration et amenagement, alternance de lieux pour les repas, hammam, piscine. Polyvalence et disponibilite de houssein. Excellente cuisine variee.
Pas de fenetres dans 2 chambres, trop peu de salles de bain, environnement exterieur au ryad. Lessives pas faites systematiquement et delais de retour un peu longs
La maison est vraiment unique, très bien entretenue, parfaite pour un séjour en famille à l'abri du vent et des regards.
Hussein s'est occupé de nous avec soin, jolies tables, très bons repas, très serviable.
Ambiance très sympathique dans le patio pour prendre des apéritifs.
JOlies chambres
