Riad des Palmiers (so-called because there are 3 ancient palm trees in the garden) is situated in the medina, just inside the city walls and overlooking the beach. This luminous house is situated in a quiet residential area and is laid out over 3 floors, each comprising 2 double bedrooms, with either ensuite shower or bathroom and kitchen. In addition, the 1st and ground floors have a salon, whereas the 2nd floor has a private sunbathing terrace. There is a large roof terrace on the top floor, and a sheltered garden with a 10 sq.metre plunge pool (which is very unusual for Essaouira and the only one in the Medina). The garden can be accessed by the ground and 1st floors, but not the 2nd. Daily maid service is provided, and meals can also be prepared by arrangement.
The house is within a couple of minutes' walk of the best restaurants in Essaouira. The souks -open air meat, fish and vegetable markets - are equally proximate, and the Supratours coach station is just outside our nearest medina gate (Bab Marrakech). The beach is less than 200 yards away.
