Review of Dar Echchaouen Chefchaouen, Morocco

Dar Echchaouen is a charming new addition to the Riad scene in Chefchaouen. Blending traditional architecture with modern comforts and great service, this is easily one of the town’s funkiest maison d’hôte. It is ideally situated near the river “Ras el Ma”, taking in the surrounding hills with the old Medina just in front.

The house offers 12 sumptuous rooms and suites decorated with in the pure local Arabo-Hispanic tradition. They are decked out in bright colours and sparsely furnished with paintings and nice local touches to bring out the spaces. All come with a chimney, private bath room, air condition and heating.

The roof terrace offers splendid view over the old Medina of Chefchaouen, the Mountains and the river of “Ras El Ma”.
