Chic Marrakech are delighted to announce that we are now launching a unique collection of hand picked properties in the nearby coastal town of Essaouira – as well as along the beautiful Atlantic coast.

Essaouira is a charming and intimate ancient beachside town – rich in history – which dates back to the 1500s.

Essaouira moves at a much slower pace – and the alluring mix of its languid and bohemian life and its fabulous architectural heritage has been enticing property buyers for decades.

The medina of Essaouira is subtly different from the medina of Marrakech – (as a consequence of its periods of European colonisation and historically deeply Jewish population), as are its riads.

They are unique in their design and decoration – and quite distinctive with the golden hues of their sandstone and striking white lime plaster.

Interestingly its’ villas are too – in the nearby countryside surrounds – with their more rustic feel and traditional stone construction.

These two different portfolios very much compliment each other and it is an exciting prospect for Chic Marrakech to open in this growing market.
