My three nights at Dar Azaouia were truly a pleasure. Caroline is the warm and accommodating innkeeper of this charming 3-room riad which looks ancient, but was actually built by her - with love and authenticity - just a few years ago.
I stayed at the top of the house in a comfortable suite with a huge and wonderful bathtub and a limitless supply of hot water, a most comfortable bed and a private terrace.
Her hospitality was in evidence when I arrived, quite late and famished. She carried my heavy bag up 2 flights, then descended to the kitchen to fix me a snack of toast and housemade herbed cheese. So it was no surprise that her breakfasts were opulent and delicious.
Asilah is a safe and friendly waterfront town with just a handful of riads, so Dar Azaouia was an especially welcome surprise. Located just outside the gates of an unusually pristine, non- commercial medina, Dar Azaouia offers an intimate, perfectly situated base from which to explore a special small beach town. Caroline is a gem and so is her little guesthouse.
