Interaction with Guests
The hosts are multilingual and live upstairs, so the attention is personalized and uninterrupted.
In this varied neighborhood, native Chaunís , Riffians, Moroccans from Fez and Tangier, and foreigners like us, live in perfect harmony in a friendly and safe environment .
The houses and shops are always open; children play in the streets, artisans show their workshops, mountain women display their products (all organic) ...
Chefchaouen’s vibrant Medina has preserved its authenticity and it is becoming one of the most visited not only by foreigners but by the same Moroccans who see it as a jewel of their culture and their idiosyncrasies.
Cars are not allowed in the Medina.
If coming by car we will tell you where to leave it.
If coming by bus it is best you take a petit-taxi to the Medina as the bus station is on the bottom of the valley.
Other Things to Note
Chefchaouen deserves a couple of days stay so you can literally get lost in its unique streets and many shops.
It is also very interesting to devote another day visiting Akchour at the Talassemtane National Park, (only a 45 minute drive) to enjoy nature at its purest state… a lasting memory for children and adults.
For the more adventurous, there are trekking routes across the mountains which can last from 1 to 5 days. Guides and lodges available in situ.

Ricardo and Nieves are very warm and welcoming people. Ricardo picked us up from the parking lot, and walked us home while showing us around. The breakfast was perfect, on the terrace with a view over Chefchaouen. And the rooms are clean and comfortable.
To say we had a great stay with Ricardo & Nieves would be a big understatement. R&N were AMAZING hosts and made us feel very welcome. Ricardo greeted us upon arriving via taxi in the medina, and showed us around town briefly before we checked in. We were given a map and they provided some great suggestions for things to check out and places to eat. The residence beautiful with nice tile work throughout the house, and a beautiful rooftop deck where we were cooked a delicious breakfast the following morning. The best part about staying here was learning from Ricardo & Nieves about Chefchaouen and Morocco in general. I would enthusiastically recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a unique experience. We will be telling anyone we can to stay here. Thank you, Ricardo & Nieves, for your hospitality and conversation.
La maison, à l’écart des rues les plus passantes, possède un toit terrasse qui offre une belle vue sur la Medina de Chefchaouen.
Nous sommes restés très peu de temps, Ricardo nous a préparé un circuit optimal (les hôtes ont vraiment envie que vous reteniez le meilleur de cette ville).
Petit déjeuner 5 étoiles (la 5ème étoile, c’est pour la compotée de tomate à l’huile d’olive et au basilic), comme le reste.
Un grand MERCI !
I chose to stay with Ricardo an Nieves based on the great reviews they have on AirBnB. I was not disappointed at all! They are wonderful hosts - warm and welcoming in every way. I was given a great orientation to Chefchaouen by Ricardo. I felt very much at ease with both of them and enjoyed the privilege to chat together about life. Without hesitation I recommend their home when you stay in the area.
Ricardo and Nieves were truly amazing! Ricardo helped arrange our transport into and out of Chefchaouen and gave us great suggestions on what to do (and where to eat!) while in town. Before arriving, we mentioned we wanted to hike into the Rif mountains, so he told us about a truly incredible hiking path and found us a fantastic guide to show us the way. Nieves prepared for us a lovely picnic for the hike, and a wonderful breakfast for the morning after our return. The house is beautiful and charming; truly a sweet home. Highly recommended.
Остановится у Ricardo и Nieve - было лучшим решением! Дом расположен в центре Медины, в минутах ходьбы от магазинчиков и ресторанов. В доме очень чисто и уютно, полностью соответствует описанию. Но самой приятной частью моего пребывания стало общение с хозяевами. Ricardo и Nieve очень доброжелательны и заботливы. Они помогли мне организовать туры, билеты на автобусы, дали карту города с рекомендациями куда лучше пойти и что посмотреть. А Nieves завтраки просто обалдение, они даже приготовили мне один взять с собой так как я уезжала очень рано утром. Ricardo и Nieve я вам очень благодарна! Без вас мой визит в Chefchaouen был бы совершенно другим. Надеюсь на новые встречи!
It was an absolute pleasure staying with Ricardo and Nieve. I felt immediately welcomed and communication was topnotch! Ricardo helped me organize all the transfers and bus tickets, city maps with directions and all the places to see, tours and even henna tattoos. Star Host!!!! The house is located in the heart of medina. It has beautiful terrace where you can enjoy the view over Chefchaouen, while having one of those delicious breakfasts that Nieve makes based on your own preferences. They even pack one for me to go, since I had to leave very early in the morning. Would definitely stay there again!
Nieves and Ricardo are the nicest hosts. Ricardo gave accurate directions on how to meet him in the medina. Ricardo met up with us and gave us a quick tour of the medina while leading on the way to the house. Their sweet, cozy home matches the description online. The house is a little way uphill and has a really nice view over the city. It is at a very good location inside the medina. In addition, their home is very clean with good bathroom accommodations. There was 6 of us and only 1 bathroom, but we made it work. We were only able to stay at Chefchaouen for half a day, but Nieves and Ricardo catered to our tight schedule. Ricardo mapped out the most efficient route sightseeing route for our short stay, and Nieves made us breakfast to go so we can catch an early bus to Casablanca the next day. We got to see most of the city and ate at the best places that Ricardo recommended. I definitely recommend this house for anyone interested in visiting Chefchaouen. Amazing accommodations and hosts! I want to come back and stay longer!

About the Host, Nieves And Ricardo
We are a Spanish couple who, after travelling the world over, decided to live a simple life in this small Moroccan town. For us it is beautiful to be able to enjoy this simplicity and, when we`ve had enough, we jump on a plane and fly to New York, Berlin, Delhi or another crowded place. We have friends all over the world and now, through airbnb, we can meet more people without leaving our home.
