A stylish and spacious 18th Century riad

A beautiful old riad transformed in to a sophisticated boutique hotel

3 nights from £530 per person

Villa de l’O offers sumptuous accommodation, discrete and friendly service and a fabulous location. Each of the twelve individually designed rooms have been furnished to the highest standard, combining all modern comforts with more traditional features, such as the lovely old photographs, aged books and vintage antiques that are dotted around this charming riad.

Sheltered by the walls of the Medina, Villa d’lO is a short distance from the centre of town and just a five minutes stroll from the long sandy bay, lined with cafes and restaurants serving freshly caught fish and other delights. For water sports fans, Essaouira is a haven for wind and kite surfers due to the strong Atlantic winds, lessons are available for novices, as well as for the more experienced.

Villa d’lO has a distinctly colonial atmosphere, with high dark wood ceilings and old comfy leather chairs which have been subtly blended with more unique contemporary furnishings, like the unusual wooden carved sculpture on the central patio, the beautiful cascading glass chandelier in the dining room and the oversized comfortable chairs and sun loungers on the roof terrace.
