In Morocco's Blue City, it's all about the view
In Morocco, I learned, when choosing a place to stay, it's all about the roof terrace. Having a quiet place to drink mint tea in the open air is a plus; but if there also happens to be a breathtaking view, then you've hit the jackpot! At Casa Perleta, a small riad tucked into a quiet corner of the Chaouen medina not far inside the gate at Bab Souk, the view from the roof terrace will not disappoint, especially at sunset. While the rooms are small, they are quite comfortable and charmingly decorated. The riad’s manager, Begoña, and the other staff, will make sure all your needs are met, give you suggestions for things to do, and arrange for afternoon tea service. The riad can provide same-day laundry service, and connect you with a reliable driver to transport you to your next destination. That is, if you can force yourself to leave this spectacular city!
