Stuart Malone, from Manchester, and his partner Tracy fell in love with Essaouira over four years ago and, having discovered Remmy (named after their baby) down a warren of passages in the medina, spent 15 months renovating it in traditional style..
They’ve created a relaxed chilling out space on the ground floor (only marred by United fan Stuart’s collections of Reds biographies)! with the five guest bedrooms, all en-suite, on the floors above around the typical riad (guesthouse) courtyard.
The couple’s friend, Sandra Cripps, who runs it for them, lives in rooms on the roof. She was a marvellous, informal help in finding our way around town (and finding the riad, which is well hidden), while introducing us to a few Brit expats and Essaouira’s rather sedate nightlife.
Breakfast aside, Riad Remmy doesn’t do food but it is within easy reach of a fabulous, eclectic, art-filled eaterie called Elizir on the Rue d’Agadir serving Italian-influenced but individual food. The cuttlefish risotto is to die for.
