The apartment is quiet, modern, very comfortable and well equipped, located in the new area of Essaouira. The bed was very comfortable and the shower hot - great after a day spent surfing!
There are many cafes in the area, local, French (I often woke to smell of baking pain au chocolate) and Italian, there's a small supermarket next door (water, bread, tinned food), and fruit and vegetable shops down the road towards the mosque (which I rarely heard in the morning). If you prefer, Carrefour is a 20min walk or 5mins by taxi. The beach is about 10mins walk away, the Medina about 20mins. Taxis pass by regularly so you don't have to wait long to catch one if you don't want to walk.
On arrival, I met Olivier in a local cafe and he responded really quickly to any queries I had after I'd settled in. I visit Essaouira regularly (this time I was here for 4 weeks) and I'd definitely recommend this apartment as a great place to stay.
