The oldest riad in Morocco is situated in the medina - old city centre - of my beloved Essaouira. This place oozes the spirit of the city, the staff are super friendly, the rooms are comfortable and the food is delicious.

It is grey and chilly when I leave the Netherlands to do some Hideaway spotting in Essaouira, Morocco. It is not my first visit to this area, Essaouira is one of my favourite cities and I love to return here occasionally. It lacks the (touristic) turmoil of Marrakech and it is located on the coast. Its micro climate makes it pleasantly warm throughout the year. Obviously I have several great Local Hideaways to sleep in the curated collection but in this blog post I like to share my favourite insider tips in Essaouira with you.
