About the villa

Villa Cortile is one of several very spacious and comfortable fully staffed private villas set in private gardens within the grounds of a small and very special hotel, set in a river valley, sheltered from the desert winds.  All the villas are set in beautiful lush  gardens and their décor showcases the richly coloured exotic fabrics and distinctive tiles that Morocco is well known for. The bedrooms are flexibly furnished and can be made up as either double or twin and are of a consistent size, with air conditioning and either a bath or shower room en suite. The spacious living rooms catch the cooling breezes, and open on to a broad terrace, with al fresco sitting and dining areas, each with a beautiful large pool with Moroccan tiling. 

The four bedrooms at Villa Cortile are accessed from the internal courtyard and some open out to the extensive lawned gardens. Two bedrooms have additional single beds. 

Breakfast is included and for other meals, guests can choose to be independent, shop locally and self-cater,  choose dishes from the villa menu and drinks menu or dine a la carte at the excellent hotel restaurant where barbecues are held on Sundays. Guests can also use the hotel bar and enjoy beauty and wellness treatments in the spa that this special hotel offers. The hotel staff will be pleased to advise on local activities such as surfing, hiking and guided tours of Essaouira and can organise car hire or transfers to explore local beaches and restaurants. There is also a shuttle service to the centre of Essaouira.  

CV clients have very much enjoyed the flexible dining options that these villa offer, the facilities at this special hotel and the interesting location. Early booking is essential.
