Charming little hotel 15 miles from Essaouira on the famous windsurfing spot of Sidi Kaouki.
Sidi Kaouki beach Essaouira, one of the best surfing spots in the world is on the Atlantic ocean about 20 km south of Essaouira (160 km from Agadir, 150 km from Marrakech).
Miles of sandy beach and encircled by extensive woodland. A rural area where you will have the opportunity to meet the Berbers and see their way of life. Like Essaouira itself, Sidi Kaouki beach has a mild climate, the temperature rarely dips below 20 degrees celsius during the day and almost never rises above thirty. There is a good bus service to and from Essaouira. Anyone wishing to get to know Essaouira and Morocco who likes peace, space and nature will find Sidi Kaouki an ideal base.
Hotel Villa Soleil is the brainchild of a Belgian couple who built five bungalows in the grounds of a villa, to create a total of nine hotel rooms. Every room has its own patio, shower, washbasin and toilet. The hotel is built like an Arab medina with little alleyways, stone arches, antique wooden gateways and doorways. There is a spacious courtyard with palm trees and a few smaller courtyards where breakfast is served and are delightful spots for a peaceful read or snooze. The first floor of the villa has an apartment with a Moroccan salon, two bedrooms with double beds, a shower room and a spacious balcony overlooking the sea. Delicious simple Moroccan food is served.
