The riad is in the middle of the medina, so forget taxi and horse carriage. The only means to transport your luggages into the medina is by asking one of the push cart boys to help. It will cost you from 30-50dh. Arriving in front of the riads' door, we were greeted by Didier and his wife Lorraine, the couple,who owns the riad. Our stay was very nice and quiet. The room was a bit small, but sufficient. The ample bed was cozy and surprisingly comfortable. The undeniable surprise was definitely the breakfast! A mix between Morrocan flat galette and French continental breakfast. It has variety, and it hold our stomach until pass midday. The view of the roof terrace was breathtaking and worth to take picture of the view of the town, and the ocean. We definitely will come back next time we plan to come to Essaouira again.
