Villa Garance, Essaouira
Lovely, comfortable and friendly place
We had a great time at Villa Garance - it is a lovely place. The location is perfect for walking the medina, the beach, etc. Marie and Pierre were very friendly and helpful - Pierre shared some of the history of the area with us, gave us a good map and recommended some restaurants. We will stay here again if we return to Essaouira!

Highly recommended
Charming and well decorated riad in the medina of Essouira. Pleasant room for 3 with ample space and nice bath. No AC, but you really don't need it in Essouira. They sell sweaters in the medina in August! Roof top breakfasts were a delight. The town and medina were safe and welcoming. The riad has a night watchman and a very attentive owner. We rented bicycles, rode camels and thorougly enjoyed this guesthouse and this town. I recommend it to anyone visitng Morocco.

Simply delightful
I loved this hotel. It felt more like visiting a family raid than being at a hotel. Pierre and Maria are delightful, every request is seamlessly handled. The house is wonderful if you want ambiance and old world charm. Breakfast on the terrace is spectacular with friendly seagulls to keep you company.

My stay at Villa Garance
This was my first time staying at a Riad. I was taken on a series of twists and turns, through the array of souks only to find that the Riad was in alley (welcome to Morocco. But once inside, I was pleasantly surprised by décor and ambiance. Each floor and room is tastefully decorated differently from the other and each captures the Moroccan theme. I after I was shown to my room, (which was quite comfortable, cozy and clean), I was greeted with a serving of traditional mint tea and cookies in the artfully decorated sitting room adjacent to my room. Thank goodness the houseman was on hand to take my suitcase upstairs as Raids do not have elevators. Also, the stairs are quite steep, so consider yourself warned. Each morning on the rooftop, a breakfast of traditional fresh breads, jams, mint tea, and juice is served. The view alone is worth the steep climb up the stairs. I found the owners and staff to be quite pleasant and accommodating. My French is quite limited but that wasn't an issue as the owner and some of the staff spoke English. I was able to maintain Wi-Fi connection throughout my stay. The place goes dark at night, I had no problems sleeping in complete quietness. All things considered, (price, cleanliness, comfort, décor, and convenience to attractions) I would return to Villa Garance again when I return to Essaouira.
