Charming place is Chef. Our second visit and we're still charmed by the underwater blue vibe the labyrinthine streets provide. Friendly cats, kids, people all. Decent selection of eateries in the old square. Tour groups in the afternoon but you'll have the place to yourself in the evenings. Stay at least two nights. Hike the hills and walk the city... More

Unfortunately we arrived during the festival of sacrifice so very few stores were open but was fantastic walking around the town. Pity about all the people trying to sell us weed but I guess you find that in all tourist cities. Best thing to do is to leave your hotel and just wonder around. Hope your fit as there are... More

A great deal of noise, incredible variety of smells from the sublime to 'interesting', vibrant colours and people, so many people. If you dislike sharing enclosed spaces with others then this is definitely not your bag however as truly wonderful markets go.....fill your boots. Bartering is a must and you very quickly learn to say a polite but firm 'no'... More

This was my last stop in Morocco before flying out of the country and i must say it is my favourite!! most of all, i really loved the blue houses/streets - the shade is so unique that i cannot find it anywhere else! According to our riad owner, the colour, known as Nila Blue actually chases away mozzies, which really... More

The medina of Chefchaouen is an amazing place wheere to explore the authenticity of the Jebala region. It is advisable to go there during the day as there is not much to see at night.

Read a number of books and reviews before going and as only there for a short time we decided to do the night time visit. We were travelling with our 9 year old son who has cerebral palsy so thought that it would be an excellent stimulation of the senses and decided to do the horse and carriage tour of... More

you think you might have seen everything and you have enough from all that blue after an hour walking there, but nearly every time you see a new street you like it again. it is one of the most picturesque things I have seen in my life. it is a rather small medina and it seems to have almost no...

There is the Medina which is the old city and also the new city. All the charme of Chefchaouen is in the old town: Medina

If you are going to Chef, you will definitely wind up in the medina. In my opinion, Chefchaouen has the best rugs in Morocco (and maybe the cheapest as well).
