We booked a room last-minute, but still the experience was a very positive one. Prime location in the medina. The rooms and the whole villa itself are delightful. The roof terrace is great and the staff are very helpful.

We spent three perfect days at Villa Garance. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated as was the whole house. We absolutely loved our breakfasts on the rooftop terrace as well as the Moroccan homemade meals in the evenings. As we have choosy kids the cook was very willing to prepare dinners according to our requests. The staff was...

First visit in Essaouira for 2 nights, and luckily French friends from Paris deeply advised us to book Villa Garance for our too short stay. First, have a 3 nights break: 2 is too short. Second, enjoy all "ingredients" you are always expecting when travelling: - 1) Location: wonderful because it is inside the Medina, very close to bars, restaurants,...

Essaouira is often experienced as a day trip from Marrakech, but that short-changes this small, refreshing fishing port/resort town, which is well worth an overnight. There's no better place to park oneself while exploring Essaouira's pleasures than Villa Garance. The small hotel is centrally located, on a side street off the main shopping street. It's a short walk to the...

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay here. The rooms were beautiful and confortable. Really enjoyed the breakfast on the terrace in the morning. The location was ideal, right in the centre of the old town. We had a meal on one of the evenings and the food was first class. Overall we found this a very relaxing place...

This riad has a great central location just off one of the main streets in the old town. The rooms are fine and the rooftop is great. The team serving breakfast are amazing. But the decor is a bit tired, and there were a few things just sort of lacking. Nobody was around when we arrived so we didn't really...

Marie and Pierre were superb hosts, their villa is a wonderful oasis. Top notch service, lovely rooms, great location. We would highly recommend it! The roof top terrace was well designed, lots of little areas to enjoy the sunshine and view.

We entered to be greeted so warmly by the assistants and hot open fires. The service was amazing, the rooms where so, so romantic and cosy. The roof top breakfast was just divine. Truly and exceptional place to stay.

This town is not only for tourists. You have to share your space with seagulls and cats. The cats are in the streets, the seagulls are everywhere. Have your breakfast at the rooftop and they come to see you. White birds, blue sky and the sea near by, what more do you want? (By the way: room is nice and...

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
