Chefchaouen Holidays

This charming Berber city painted in shades of blue set in the Rif mountains is a must if you are visiting or passing through northern Morocco.

Founded in 1471 this beautiful and highly atmospheric little city has much to offer in the way of insights into Rif mountain life. Painted in shades of blue, the small streets are like no other place in the country. Small hotels and restaurants are the way to experience this authentic and interesting place.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
