We can't recommend Villa Garance highly enough! This charming, spacious riad has bags of history and charm, and is located in a small street in the heart of the Medina, only a short walk from the ramparts and the Atlantic ocean. We were truly delighted with everything that Villa Garance had to offer: our elegant bedroom; the large roof terrace... More

Villa Garance was our first riad experience in Morocco, and the perfect beginning to our honeymoon! Pierre and his staff were so thoughtful and attentive to every detail, down to flowers, Moroccan pastries, and rose petals on our pillows for when we arrived. The room and riad itself were extremely clean and welcoming, the breakfasts were delicious (including fresh fruit... More

This was our second visit to Villa Garance, our first being in 2011, and this one was our first under the new owners, French couple Pierre and Marie. We loved the place in 2011 and we loved it just as much in 2015. It is such a special place, a beautiful old Riad in the heart of the Medina with... More

Villa Garance is a character filled riad housed in a historic building with charming, spacious rooms and suites.There are many communal areas where to enjoy the company of a fire, a book or a wonderful mint tea. Pierre and Marie (the owners) together with their polite and helpful staff made us feel very welcomed. We enjoyed an aperitif and an... More

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
