Agne was immensely helpful from the moment of first contact (as I knew she would be), confirming that gluten free breakfast would be no problem as long as we brought our own bread (omelette, fruit, yoghurt, butter, jam, fresh juice and tea was provided and made a great start to to the day).
She gave a view on my thoughts of places to eat and made her own recommendations, and she pre-booked a minivan for the six guests arriving on the same flight from London to take us to the riad, and booked a table at a place we wanted to eat at in advance and arranged transport. It was a shame that she had to travel away from Morocco when we actually stayed as we would love to have met her, and her cook Fatima did an excellent job of looking after us in her absence.
The riad is quite unprepossessing from the outside and the corridor inside the front door is dark. But once inside the living room is comfortable and nicely designed, with a pleasant small dining room and kitchen off, which is available to use and so perfect for storing wine in the fridge (the grog shop is in the next street) and fixing a snack or picnic if you want to.
Our twin room on the first floor was a decent size, nicely decorated and had a good shower room with a large shower stall and constant hot water. We were comfortable there.
The roof terrace is very pleasant and amply furnished with seating and quite sheltered. The whole place is very clean.
I would recommend booking directly with Agne for the best rate, which was very reasonable, working out at approximately £23 per night for the room B&B. Wifi worked well throughout the riad.
The location is fine, being within the medina but a quiet part of it, only a few minutes from the walls/ taxi stop and a 5 minute stroll to the commercial heart of the medina.
We spent a very nice and warm relaxed early winter weekend in Essaouira and would wholeheartedly recommend this as a base to stay.
