Great place in the heart of the Medina.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here for two weeks during the Gnaou music festival. Jeanne met us from the taxi and was really helpful throughout our stay but never intrusive. The apartment is right in the centre of the medina with a roof terrace that looks out over one of Essaouira's main thoroughfares down to the port. Everything you need is yards away - from fresh bread baking to Berber jewellery shops. Highly recommended.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Jeanne's 'Menthe' apartment for 8 nights on our first trip to Morocco. The apartment was lovely, clean, simple, beautifully renovated and decorated and in a good position in the medina. The terrace has good views of the main street, great for watching the world go by and is perfect for breakfast. It'd be good for catching some sun too if you don;t want to go to the beach. Unable to meet us herself, Jeanne sent Halima to meet us and take us the apartment. Later, Jeanne was an excellent 'host' helping us with questions, providing advice etc and checking we were ok throughout the holiday.

Oh and the bed was just the right sort of firm and comfy - way better than many I have slept in on holidays.

I had a quick peek at the other two apartments and both are just as lovely as 'Menthe'.

Séjour magnifique au Maroc, Essaouira est une ville authentique sécurisée avec une meteo trés agréable . Nous avons été tres bien accueilli par Jeanne, qui nous a coseillée ( adresses sympas pour se restaurer se balader ....etc. Nous étions un couple et 2 enfants (15 ans). Nous avions l'appart figue du 1ème étage,trés confortable et bien décorée, très gros avantage d'être au coeur de la médina...Port et plage à proximité ! Appartement très conforme au site internet

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué (deux adultes et deux ados) un des trois appartements. Un couple d'amis un autre des appartements. Configuration parfaite pour découvrir Essaouira en bande de copains ! La terrasse commune est très agréable, le petit déj au soleil à noel : parfait !

L'accueil est lui aussi parfait, les bons plans, les questions pratiques, nos hôtes nous accompagnent très bien !

Je conseille vivement !

Très agréable séjour au coeur de la médina

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué l'appartement du dernier étage, nous y avons passé un très agréable moment. La prestation de location est tout à fait conforme à ce qui était annoncé. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'accueil de Jeanne, toujours disponible, dont les conseils nous ont permis de passer un très bon moment (restaurants, services...). L'appartement est confortable, bien décoré, bien équipé. La terrasse est très agréable, nous y avons pris notre petit-déjeuner à plusieurs reprises. Bref, un lieu très sympa pour profiter de la vie de la médina. Si la rue qui permet d'accéder à l'appartement a parfois un aspect peu ragoûtant, nous n'y avons jamais ressenti le moindre sentiment d'insécurité. Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse.
