In the middle of the medina, but in a quiet side street. Overall, I would consider this a 3-star riad. Rooms are good, but no more. Definitely not the 5 stars that other reviewers have given. Pluses: Nice rooftop terrace; friendly owners and staff; good breakfast. Minus: Rooftop room reserved and confirmed by the riad itself was not usable due...

Dear M. Ohkami, it was a pleasure to welcome you and your family in our riad. We are however surprised that you report as a minus the fact that we accomodated you in room n°1 on the first floor. As explained at your arrival, this was due to the fact that you had not confirmed acceptance of our proposal for...

I was not dissapointed with Villa Garance. The riad is beautifully decorated and has great views from the rooftop where breakfast is served. the rooms are super clean and neat. The riad is tucked away off the main street so at night you can sleep without hearing all the madness of the streets below. The staff are extreamely friendly and...

The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and a nice size with good decor. The breakfast was typical for the area on the terrace. It has a great view, but you do have to climb stairs and it can be cool and windy in the morning. The wireless only works on the lower floors,...

Villa Garance is in a good location in Essaouira with a nice roof terrace on which you can take breakfast. The rooms are a little rough around the edges and in need of some care and attention. There is a lingering smell in some parts of the Road which smell a little of blocked drains. I would recommend you double...

We just returned from 2 weeks in Morocco. Villa Garance was the best riad we stayed in during our entire trip! Entire staff was helpful, and owners helped with any questions we had during our 3 night stay. Breakfast on the roof every morning was great and scenic. Had dinner our last night. It was a delicious way to end...

A very beautiful Riad, particularly loved the architecture of the lobby and roof terrace. A very warm a welcoming hostess. Lovely breakfasts. Only minor issue was that there is a primary school just across the alley, so chilling out in the room during daytime is not too peaceful.

Villa Garance is a small boutique villa, beautifully furnished, with each room having different decor.The villa is owned and run by two French sisters and they have certainly brought their French sophistication to the place! Our room was lovely, with a metal four-poster bed and a small, long room leading to the street. The villa is immacculately clean, and we...

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
