8 Coolest Airbnbs in Chefchaouen, Morocco

Chefchaouen, also known as the “blue city” or “blue pearl”, is known for its bright blue walls.

With the vast colors and materials used in Moroccan construction, there is an overflow of private rooms and entire homes to book for your stay. Prices are affordable in comparison with most destinations, and nearly everything is clustered, making Chefchaouen very walkable. Consider these absolutely gorgeous Airbnbs when venturing to the city.
