Comfortable, well equipped and well-located

  • 5 of 5

This is a large Riad about 5 minutes from the centre of town, port etc. In addition to 4 ensuite bedrooms there are two additional sleeping spaces.There is a comfortable sitting area on the ground floor adjacent to eating areathat s spacious and will accomodate families/groups comfortably. Bathrooms are well-designed and hot water is almost instant.

The kitchen has everything you might need if you decide to cook for yourself - the tremptation is to eat out all the time but the quality of ingredients in markets and especially the fish in the port and fish market mean you should also try home cooking.

The house has a spacious roof terrace and a separate washing machine/clothes drying area so you can afford to pack fewer clothes and rely on occasional machine-loads! There is also a large hard disk of films to watch if you fancy a night in. (TV reception and channel choice is limited.)

We were there - 5 of us, a group of friends from London and Bristol in UK - during the annual music festival. During this time everything is crowded and prices of accomodation are high in Essaouira so the Riad remained value for money even at a 'high-season' rate.

The local person who looks after the house is available and helpful but not intrusive. She makes as much of a contribution as you want - she cooked a great Tagine dinner for us one evening but in general we relied on ourselves. Others will have different needs - everything is flexible.

The house wner is also amazingly helpful responding quickly to queries and following up queries with useful and relevant information. Much of this is in French and in general although there are many English speakers in Essaouira it is useful if there are some French speakers in your party for general local communication purposes. ) School-boy/girl French is sufficient - Morrocans are easy-going on grammatical sophistication!

The Riad spreads over 3 floors (ground, 1st 1nd 2nd) and the stairs would be a challenge for people with mobility problems and parents will need to ensure that young children come down on their backsides or all-fours!

The weather was neither too hot nor too cold for us - it tends to stay between 17 and 27 for most of the year in Essaouira . However there can be a fierce wind at certain times even during the day in summer so bring something to keep you warm/wind-proofed.

Overall an excellent base for a holiday break. Highly recommended.

Agréable séjour entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans ce joli ryad situé dans un quartier très calme, au coeur de la médina.

Fatouma nous a reçus avec une grande gentillesse, nous a préparé de délicieux plats marocains, très appréciés de tous et a assuré l'entretien général.

L'équipement est assez complet, chaque chambre dotée de sanitaires fonctionnels, l'ensemble décoré discrètement.

A recommander !

Nous rentrons d'une semaine à Essaouira où nous avons fêté un anniversaire en famille.

Le riad de Françoise était très bien situé, au calme dans la médina. Il était très spacieux, aucun problème pour accueillir les 9 membres de la famille.

Nous avons apprécié les douches dans chaque chambre, les petits salons lumineux et la terrasse ensoleillée.

Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par Fatou, qui nous a préparé des bons petits déjeuners et des super petits plats tous les soirs et n'a pas hésité à partager ses recettes!! Nous avons été touchés par sa gentillesse et sa bonne humeur.

La visite dans son village où on a assisté à la préparation de l'huile d'argan a également été très appréciée.

Merci aussi à Françoise pour ses précieux conseils et toutes les infos indispensables à la préparation du séjour.

Et un grand merci à notre chauffeur conseillé par Françoise qui a effectué le transfert depuis l'aéroport et, surtout, nous a emmenés toute une journée dans la vallée du paradis où il nous a fait découvrir des paysages merveilleux. Il est d'une grande gentillesse, mais aussi d'une ponctualité exemplaire. On était vraiment en confiance avec lui!!

Nous n'avons malheureusement pas eu le temps de tout visiter et espèrons y retourner au plus vite.

authentique riad en plein coeur de la médina

  • 4 of 5

Riad confortable pour 8 copines parties jouer au golf (très bon parcours), visitant les souks tous les soirs en toute sécurité, se baignant dans la mer quand elles avaient le temps...etc et Fatouma qui veillait sur notre petite troupe en nous préparant un petit déjeuner copieux et quelques diners de temps en temps. Un grand merci!!!!

à conseiller vivement pour une immersion complète et chaleureuse dans Essarouira.

Riad Anaïssouira is situated in the very heart of the picturesque and romantic car-free Medina of Essaouira, in a true oasis of calm and serenity, not even 5 minutes' walk from the lively port teeming with activity, the beach and its water sports, the mythical place Moulay Hassan, 2 mns to the famous Sqala of the Kasbah imbued with a medieval atmosphere, its ramparts and canons overhanging the Ocean. Don't miss the magnificent sunsets from over there. Very near all conveniences (groceries, restaurants, greengrocers... and not even 3 miles away from the Mogador golf greens. The craft shops are everywhere around and there is a massage salon and a hammam at some 100 yards from home.

The lovely and trustworthy daily help will be pleased to cook breakfast for you if you like or to prepare some typically Maroccan meals like couscous, tagines or pastillas at a very decent price.

She can also show you around and help out with any logistics.

Other Activities: swimming- pools, spas, discovering rural life

The Mogador golf with its two courses of 18 holes - is actually at 3 miles from the Esaouira Medina - at about 8 minutes by car or taxi. Drawn by Gary Player, they offer the players, whether they are amateurs or professionals, a rare experience in the contact of dunes and the forest with the Ocean as a backdrop. In a nutshell, a fantastic location for golf!

Good news is a direct connection from London (Luton) to Essaouira Airport with Easyjet from May 2015 onwards.
