About the Host, Pascale
Nous sommes un couple de français, anciens restaurateurs. C'est lors d'un long périple au Maroc en 2009 que nous sommes tombés sous le charme d'Essaouira et que nous avons décidé de nous y installer. Nous avons posé nos valises dans cette très jolie maison familiale traditionnelle (dar ou petit riad) avec son patio, ses deux étages et sa terrasse.
Nous aimons les plaisirs simples comme les balades, la bonne chère et les contacts humains. Notre devise est tout simplement "carpe diem"
