Accomodation in Chefchaouen - Casa Linda in Chaouen

Chaouen is a little village of about 40.000 inhabitants, in the outskirts of the Rif-Mountainsin the north of Morocco. At 660m. altitude and with very little traffic of cars, the clean and fresh air invites you to spend some time to discover the beauty of the place and its surroundings.

The Medina of Chefchaouen, also known as Chaouen or Xauen, is pretty calm and little and its picturesque alleys will all lead you to the central square Uta el-Hammam,with the big Mosque and the Kashba. From here an alley can be taken that leades northeast to Bab el-Ansar and the source Ras el-Maa. This precious walk takes us to the Rif Sebbanin, the laundry district, with the Seat of Sebbanin and its mosque of century XV.
