It is a nice place just to relax, looking over mountains as well as walking around the old medina. The medina itself is a large historical museum with its beautifully coloured byildings in blue.
Nice people, nice food, safe street. What can you expect more!
This has to be the most chilled out place in Morocco! I had heard of the 'blue village' and was keen to see if it was as good as I'd heard- it really lived up to reputation.
The old Medina with its small blue houses is truly gorgeous and the Moroccans are nowhere near as pushy as they are in other parts of the country. We visited the cascade (waterfalls) and the views were superb, but the first cascade is a slap of a walk and the second is not for the unfit or faint hearted! This is a place to just relax and forget time, friendly locals make it a great place to visit, but rather hilly if you have walking difficulties.
We loved this town - it was so scenic! We had read that it is the "Amsterdam of Morocco", but, any drug culture was subtle (we were approached, but, it wasn't a big deal.
It is the place where it all looks beautifully decorated all around the town. The old medina is pained in Blue which makes unqiue atmosphere in the area.
It is nice walk around place and there is also easy tracking course around the city as it is situated in the mountain. The food is good, especially fresh sea food from near seaside. I would recommend Chefchaouen to anyone looking for a place to relaxed with no hassle.
Charming city but a long way to go for 1 night which is all you should spend here as there is so much more to see in Morocco.
Pick you traveling period well as we went during the rainy season and it was drab, cold wet and slippery - not much fun.
