Baoussala is a very unique experience with a communal feel. The riad is a haven for relaxing and escaping the buzz. Not far from town and easily accessible via taxi (can be organised by the hotel) or rental car, this is a truly special place to relax the soul and loose yourselves on roofscape, the many outdoor and indoor spaces...

I really like your words, specially "escaping the buzz" Essaouira itself is a relaxing city compared to Marrakech, but in Baoussala it is even more relax ! Thank you !
