Lovely riad in the center of the medina in Essaouira. The room was nice and tastefully decorated. Pierre and Marie were very kind and welcoming. The terrace is the best part of the riad - with lots of different little seating options and nice views. No complaints!

Our stay at Villa Garance was a happy accident that made us extend our time in Essaouira, because we enjoyed it so much.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Garance is a charming, spacious riad, beautifully decorated inside, with 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. You will be truly delighted with everything that Villa Garance had to offer: elegant, clean and large bedrooms (10 single, double, twin or for families up to 5 people, from 15 to 35 m²); the large roof terrace with distant sea views, where a delicious and hearty homemade breakfast is served in the sunshine, where you can have sunbathe with a book throughout the day; and the charming and helpful owners Marie and Pierre, who are extremely friendly and give you lots of information on the history of Essaouira along with recommendations for restaurants and activities. All bedrooms are heated, with private bathroom, and have large windows except two of them which give access to a bright patio. Lunch, diner and massage can be arranged. ... more   less
