Riad des Palmiers (so-called because there are 3 ancient palm trees in the garden) is a villa in the French colonial style, situated in the medina and overlooking the beach.
The house -which sleeps 12- can be rented in its entirety, or by the apartment (of which there are 3 laid out over 3 floors). Each apartment comprises 2 double bedrooms with either ensuite shower or bathroom and fully fitted 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 available to all, and a 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 floor apartments, but not the 2nd.
Daily maid service is provided, and meals can also be prepared by arrangement; however, breakfast is not normally included.
The Riad can be rented as a whole house or by apartment.
