We were so pleased with our five night stay at villa garance. Christine was so welcoming and really took us under her wing! With all the insider information we were about to make the most of our trip to Essaouira. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and bathrooms well kept, with the layout of the riad, windows opened... More

It is a lovely place, right in the middle of the old town. The owner and staff are very helpful and friendly. Our room was on the roof so it was nice to be able to sit outside and relax in the evening. It is quite a pleasant room (no. 10 I think). Other people have mentioned the school below... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Villa Garance. Our room was large, with a separate curtained area and twin bed for our son and a private bathroom. We had a delicious breakfast each morning on the rooftop terrace. The women owners were lovely and very helpful at answering any questions we had. We enjoyed Essaouira thoroughly.

My wife and I spent three nights in this lovely bed and breakfast. Our room was large, nicely appointed and comfortable. The entire house was beautifully decorated with colorful fabrics, kilims and hand painted furniture. One of the two owner/sister team (and her husband) spoke far better English than the other, but both were quite helpful. We loved the rooftop... More

We stayed only 1 night here which was a pity because it was one of the nicest places we stayed in Morocco. It was in the heart of the bustling medina but we stepped through the doorway and were in a different, tranquil world. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and the shower was hot. There were lovely... More

I came here with my partner a few years ago. We stayed in a double room which was fresh bright and comfortable. The host/owner/manager was a very friendly European lady who helped us with deciding where to go and what to do and was happy to take the time to just have a chat. Breakfasts were served on the rooftop... More

We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who were charming and informative. Our rooms were comfortable and clean, although lacking in the elegance of some other riads. The layout is traditional for jewish houses in Essaouira and unlike those belonging to arab families has windows to the outside as well as the courtyard, making it particularly light... More

We stayed here 3 nights, at it was our first time in Essaouria. It's a really nice place and our hosts were very friendly. Our rooms were a real luxury and the breakfast was great on the sunny rooftop terrace.

Very nice Ryad, a beautiful suite on the 1st floor, number 4. Great breakfast, the employees welcoming and attentive, we will surely come back! The Villa Garance is perfectly located close to all the must do in Essaouira. No Tv in the bedroom, awesome!

We stayed here at the end of our cycling trip and I must say it really impressed. The staff were exceptionally helpful and always willing to go that extra mile like when we wanted pizza rather than eat out and they just went out and got it for us. Rooms were very clean and tasteful and the showers worked very... More
