Olivier is an extremely friendly, kind and professional host. The riad has been beautifully restored and the view from the terrace, along with the delicious homemade breakfast, is a very memorable experience. Highly recommeneded.

Le Cheval Blanc is a beautiful, quiet, clean and peacefu riad in Safi. We had a delicious breakfast in the covered terrace overlooking the sea. The beds are very comfortable, there are plenty of little corners where to rest or read and Olivier is a great host who will make sure you have all you need for a perfect stay.... More

We have spent a very nice time in this lovely riad, located in the medina of Safi, close to the main square. The owners of the riad are two friendly persons, ready to give appropriate pieces of advice about what is worth visiting and what is not. The riad provided us with the dinner, and it was really tasty. Thank... More

We slept so well at the Cheval Blanc and felt so relaxed at at this riad, that we made a last minute decision to change our plans and extended our stay for another evening.

We stayed there last week and it was a pleasant experience. It's a great place to watch a sunset and breakfast on the roof is quite nice. It is in a great location and it has everything that you need in a Riad. The only downside is the price, which is a little excessive.

The two guys running this riad have spent a couple of years getting through the red tape and restoring this property. Monumental effort that will hopefully pay off for all the input. Friendly and well located in the medina of Safi it has great views of the port and Atlantic. The local staff are not professionally trained but are keen... More

Although we visit Morocco regularly, this was our first stay in Safi. Le Cheval Blanc proved to be a very good choice - well located, good sized rooms, comfortable beds, a good breakfast. Olivier sat with us at breakfast and was charming company.

Perfect experience. Super beautiful, well located, lots of charm. Services was excellent, the owner (Olivier) very kind, and the city, surprisinly cool, calm, clean and safe. Not far from good beaches like this one (full of surfers): http://goo.gl/maps/zIFgV

Thank you very much for your comment. Unfortunately, Safi is a city that is often criticized. It may not be the charm of some small towns but its medina is certainly one of the most beautiful of Morocco and its atmosphere is much more authentic than Essaouira or Marrackech for example. More

The riad is located close to the central square and the sea castle in the Safi Medina down a small dark alley way. The riad is run by a talkative Frenchman who is more than willing to share experiences and hints about Morocco and Safi. Food, both breakfast and dinner is great. Breakfast is served at the rooftop with a... More

Thank you to both our hosts for a truly relaxing time. After visiting nearby villages, local sights and a tour of the medina, we finally managed to wind down and felt the benefit of this quiet riad. We ate there most evenings because the food prepared by a local lady was delicious. The local catch (safi is a port) is... More
