A fantastic raid full of character spread over a number of floors. Beautiful.
Faultless from cool entrance room through 2 floors of beautifully decorated and appointed ensuite bedrooms to the light and spacious kitchen dining room. The roof offers brilliant views of the Atlantic ocean. All joined by a beautiful spiral staircase.
The owner very helpful with lots of useful information. The housekeeper very discreet and helpful.
This raid totally made our holiday to Morocco. We adored the relaxed atmosphere of the place.
Wonderful experience in the Medina!
Our family of 4 rented the riad for 10 days, and had an incredible time. This was our first visit to Africa, and, looking back, we made the right decision in choosing Essaouira and this riad. I would recommend this rental to anyone that is looking for an experience to be engaged with a city that elicits positive karma.
The riad is located on a street with many local craftsman and merchants, who made us feel very welcome during the stay. My ability to converse in French is very poor, and almost everyone was willing to help overcome the language barrier with positive interactions. The street activity is active at night, and many hours were spent being entertained by kids playing creative games on the street. Laughter and camaraderie made this experience so wonderful.
The housekeeper was attentive and thoughtful. We experienced internet issues early in our stay, and she looked to rectify immediately. She prepared a delightful tagine meal for us during our stay.
We utilized the preferred taxi service to go to/from Essaouira to Marrakech, and the driver was informative and fun. He made a special effort to show us the goats in the argan trees on our trip, which was a great experience.
Having the riad located within the medina gave my daughters a feeling of security, which helped create a very favorable impression during our visit. The rooftop deck was a favorite tanning spot, in between the daily activities. The riad accommodated a family of four very nicely. Our daily routine included a late morning walk to the local shops for bread, cheese and fruits for our breakfast. We cooked meals in the riad, and ate at the local restaurants.
We were very sad to leave the riad and Esssaouira, but the memories of this fantastic stay will always be with us.
Quelle belle expérience pour des Américains vennt pour la premiére fois en AFRIQUE et notamment à ESSAOUIRA.Tout est dit.

Perfectly situated a good stay ,I didn’t anticipate the 4 floors of stairs as we are in our late sixties ,but that’s my fault ! but bear in mind for less mobile people than us.Traditional Riad ,nicely furnished,fine for a short stay.Owner very attentive by phone from France as were the housekeepers,very handy being almost opposite a working bakery with fresh bread all day.Thankyou to Niama and brother.

"The comfortable and nice...
"The comfortable and nice house is situated inside the medina but nearby gate Bab Doukkala. So the place is very easy to reach. And at Bab Doukkala you find busses and taxis. You find also all kind of shops in the streets nearby. Living inside the medina means: Good impressions of arabian everyday life,many opportunitys for nice street scenes in the small alleys. You fear the house could be too noisy, situated in the middle of arabian life? No, it is very silent during the nights, so you can sleep very well. During the day you may hear the sound of playing kids or the shouts of an orange seller, but that will not disturb you. And of course you can shut the window.
What I enjoyed most was the wonderful roof terrace with a fantastic view to the Atlantic sea and the roofs of the medina.Escaping from a hard german winter I found myself under a sunny blue sky full of sea gulls.
It is already much said about the equipment and furnishings of the house by other customers. So I just want to add that you receive a very broad offer of european radio and tv channels by satellite. I received nearly all german channels. And recently you have also internet.
Last but not least: The friendly owner provides you with all kinds of information about wonderful Essaouira. And on the spot Naima, the friendly house keeper, will care about you.
By the way: Essaouira is a very nice seaside town with friendly inhabitants and a charming atmosphere. Perfect for relaxed holidays!"
riad très agreable
Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine dans le riad .Il est très bien placé dans la médina Pas loin du port . Le boulanger à la porte du riad fait un pain qui est excellant. Une dame vend des crêpes juste à côté , le marché à 500m ,
le riad est très sympa , Naima très gentille,
juste un petit bemol il faudrait rajouter quelques ustensiles de cuisine comme une poêle plus grande et des petites cuillères qui sont un peu juste
le propriétaire est très gentil et prend des nouvelles et nous a fournit toute une documentation qui est très pratique
allez voir le marché aux dromadaires le dimanche ça vaut le coup d oeil
essaouira est une ville agréable et ses habitats très gentil
