Very nice, large, well located apartment with not one, but three terraces for enjoying the air and the view (this was a major plus). Mohamed thoughtfully provisioned the apartment so we didn't need to eat out after arriving late in the day. There was a Moroccan lounge and a 'European lounge' and everything we could need - except wireless internet. Mohamed very kindly lent us his laptop complete with an internet dongle but it's not the same as having wireless which we both can use with our iPads. As the property is tucked under the mountains our data plan internet didn't work in there either so we found this pretty inconvenient.
The apartment is near Ras El Ma, where a natural spring gushes from rocks in the valley and where locals congregate for leisure, and for doing the washing. It's a fantastic atmosphere in the evenings, and all day Sunday. There's a great cafe with good coffee about 100 metres towards the spring (with wireless), and a lovely restaurant with terraced gardens a few steps down near the water. The apartment is in the old medina and easy wandering to the square, and all the lovely blue alleyways that make Chefchaouen such a wonderful place to stay. The apartment is a little on the expensive side, but we wanted comfort and space, and that's what we got. Hopefully wireless will be installed soon and that would make this apartment a gem!
Thank you for the review, but having an English key board laptop in the house was not part of the deal. People who stayed in our house and had their personal laptop had no problem at all accessing the internet using the wireless dongle we provide. It was not either part of the deal that I leave you my personal computer, despite the inconvenience I suffered as a result.
Nor was it part of the deal to leave you enough food at he house to be able to have dinners at home! But this is part of our hospitality instinct as Moroccans...
Thank you anyway for staying with us!
