Guestbook comments from the owner
"We spent about 8 nights at Jane's place, which we'd highly recommend. We needed to relax and this is the perfect place to find a different pace of life, in a small berber village, waking up to the sounds of birds, goats and donkeys. We didn't have a car, so Jane arranged for a taxi to take us from the bus station to her place on the first day, and was very helpful in showing us around. After that the 20ish minute walk down the little lane to the main road became a familiar and enjoyable part of our day. Travel into Essaouria was easy, quick and cheap by taxi. There are plenty of local little shops nearby where you can get most things you'll need. The studio is simple and clean and was perfect for our needs, and the pool and garden are lovely, with options for sun and shade. It was lovely sitting on the terrace for breakfast accompanied by boffo (the dog) and max (the cat), who became regular visitors. It's very likely that we'll return to this little retreat once London life gets too much again".
