Positives: The riad dates back to the 18th century. It has been lovingly restored with some of the original features preserved. The overall decor of the hotel is lovely! A particular highlight for me was the beautiful stone sink complete with fossils! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and were keen to show us maps of the area with... More

We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and a detailed lowdown on where to visit. The food here is also of a very high standard. However, due to some mix up we did not get a room on the top floor as requested. Instead we were given a room on the first floor which turned out to be... More

I'd highly recommend La Maison Du Vent. We'd visited Essaouira before and stayed outside the medina but it's much better to stay within the walls and Maison Du Vent is really well placed, with everything very close to hand. We had a wonderful, warm welcome to the riad and our room was clean, comfortable and really nicely decorated. The staff... More

This place has an amazing location right next to everything. The staff is very hospitable and the owner Christoph is helpful with everything regarding your stay in Essaouira and regarding your further travel in Morroco. The rooms are also very clean and spacious. I cannot recommend this place enough!!

Just home from a lovely break here... would highly recommend. Absolutely beautiful accommodation, great location, local streets a wee bit run down, but once inside riad all of that is forgotten. Hostess is so lovely too... A very nice Moroccan breakfast included, even better enjoying it on the terrace in the sunshine. Medina well worth a wander round.. minimal hassle... More

Although our room was a trifle basic, this was more than compensated for by the warmth, humour and charm of Christophe, the manager, and his team. Thoroughly recommendable. The food in the local restaurants was good, although, largely limited to various tagines, could become rather monotonous! Beware the touts, and memorise the Arabic for "No Thanks".

La Maison Du Vent offers more than just a place to stay in Essaouira. It extends an invitation to love and peace carried by the wind of the ocean to everyone who chose to stay there. It receives the guests with the comforting and soothing aroma of Moroccan flowers and the moment you step a foot in that place, you... More

We stayed in Christophe's riad for two nights and we loved it. The room was excellent and the riad was very comfortable, well furnished and with a great terrace with a fabulous view over Essaouira (you can have breakfast there). Typical Moroccan breakfast was delicious. But the very best was to be welcomed by kind Fatma, who is the heart... More
