Fodor's Expert Review Caiat Lounge Refuge

Jemaa El Oued, Km 12 on road between Chefchaouen and Oued Laou, Tetouan, Tanger-Tétouan, 93007, Morocco

An excellent base camp from which to explore the Rif, just 30 minutes from Chefchaoen, this eco-friendly oasis in the mountains is actually a plateau of cute houses across from a dramatic valley. There are multiple options: you can stay in the hostel-like main house, or rent one of the white stucco houses for yourself. The restaurant offers fresh local produce prepared in a brick oven and a mouthwatering goat cheese salad, and beer—also local. The clear air and amazing mountain views are a luxury of their own.
