Get inspired by Annalu’s days in Essaouira

My favourite moment is when finally I cross the Bab Sba door , I find all the colours , familiar smells brought by the wind Asma always comes to meet me at the medina than we walk together along the narrow streets until I see the gray ancient door , I just love the moment she gives me the key to open my door to my moroccan world . Once luggage are up on the rooms the vacation can start ! 1 ) I relax myself in the alcove in the living room by choosing the right light to enjoy…


The house was really beautiful and we enjoyed it very much. The location is very good en the rooftop balcony is a nice place to relax. Asma is helping around the house and made very nice breakfast and dinners (on request) for us. This was perfect after a day of surfing at the beach. Thanks for everything! Wiecher (Airbnb user)


We stayed at the Riad in April 2012 and received an excellent service from Annalisa from start to finish. It is clear that Annalisa and her brother Alessandro have put a lot of thought and a lot of work into decorating and finishing the Riad and the result is breathtaking. Each of the rooms are beautifully finished and furnished and whilst the Riad is very stylishly appointed, it has not lost its homely charm. KateMorgan0918, Tripadvisor user


“We couldn’t have made a better choice!” The inside of the riad, based in the heart of the souk, is absolutely fantastic, so don’t be put-off when you get to the entrance! Annalu dealt with everything brilliantly from arranging a taxi to pick us up at the airport to getting Asma, the local contact, to advise us on where to go and what to see – oh, and to tidy and make the beds daily. Would definitely recommend. B00tyb0y, Tripadvisor user
