The house, built by a rabi a hundred years ago, will charm you with its exceptional beauty and the harmony of its construction blending the Arabic, Berber and Jewish influences. The light of the external windows in italian style mixes with the brightness of the patio; the wooden painted ceilings and the thuya ones coexist in harmony, and the Andalusian zelliges contrast pleasantly with the furniture of Arabian-Berber style, plunging you into the unique mix of cultures which shaped the spirit of the city.
Leaving Brittany, where Christine had run a B&B, the two sisters joined together to realise their dream of opening a charming guesthouse in Essaouira, the pearl of the Moroccan Atlantic coast.
Located in a quiet alley at the intersection of the main centres of interest, the guesthouse allows you to alternate visits to the colourful medina with relaxation on the terrace, which towers above the roofs overlooking the sea, or with massage sessions in our well-being centre.
Eight spacious rooms are arranged around the patio to welcome two or four guests in great comfort.They also have windows opening on to a quiet and bright street.
Every room is located near one of the several small lounges of the villa,allowing one to meet with friends. Both four bedroom suites have their own private lounge.
Two additional rooms located on the terrace (one double room and one suite) afford you complete privacy.

|El Riad es muy agradable, la habitación amplia y luminosa. Los desayunos estaban muy bien y en la terraza que se estaba genial. El personal y la responsable del Riad fueron muy atentos y generosos. El precio nos pareció un poco excesivo, quizás fue por la demanda debido al Festival de música Gnaua.|

|We loved Villa Garance and were very sorry not to have been able to stay there longer. The villa itself is gorgeous with a roof terrace that is set out over several levels and we had a really comfortable room. The staff were wonderful; friendly and extremely accommodating. We would definitely stay at Villa Garance again (wish we were there now!).|
