A good break from the crazy busy Medinas in larger Moroccan cities. The rural city character and intense blue and white buildings are pleasing. It is a hillside town so you have a lot of steps and sloped cobble streets but if your not in a hurry it shouldn't be a problem. Good restaurants and a lot to see. Give... More

Even in August Chefchaouen was not too overcrowded and the people are super friendly. The blue painted buildings are wonderful, it's great to just wander the back streets and enjoy the views of the mountains through the gaps in the blue buildings.

We enjoyed our visit to the cooler, cloudy/rainy adorable town of Chefchaouen in the Rif mountain range. In the mountains it was a bit cooler at night than I expected, but it was over a mile high in altitude so I should have known it would be cool. Although touristy in places this is a wonderful city to visit for... More

Just one of the most beautiful places that I've visited. Winding down corners, Chefchaouen is safe for a wonder.

One of the loveliest medinas in all of Morocco, this little blue old town will take your heart and make you stay for quite a few days in order to explore, stroll around and find all its secrets. The locals are very lovely except only if you are trying to photograph them, always ask permission to take a photo of... More

As an amateur photographer, this city was perfect and unique, I loved the landscape scenery the endless possibilities I had for picture taking, the maze of cobbled stone streets, that never ends, the sensation that you have gone back in time when seeing the women washing clothes by the river, experiencing the pure essence of the culture. However you need... More

Chefchaouen was paradise until we were sucked in by Abdul, a carpet seller (Chez Abdul). Unfortunately it took us a few days to understand, and by then it was too late. Chefchaouen is a marvel. It is a beautiful, charming place that I will dream of for the rest of my life. But if you decide to step off the... More
