When we came to Morocco we were a little unsure about staying in a Riad. But then we heard about Pierre and Marie's Riad and decided to give it a try. They have a excellent reputation for very good reasons. First the Riad itself is of wonderful design and decor. Rooms are very large with beautiful common areas. Great Wifi!!!... More

Lovely small hotel that is very comfortable and the service is excellent. Have stayed here repeatedly for over 10 years and have always returned for one of the best places to stay and the best coffee in the morning on the roof terrace.

The warm-hearted and kindness of the owners and staff is only scratching the surface of this wonderful place in a beautiful town. Off the main road in the Medina, close to the town square, this place stands between all the fun and the helpful quiet you'd want from an inn. When I needed help for work and for a medical... More

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
