Holiday Rental House
Tangiers is a fascinating Moroccan city to visit. It has many of the things that travellers love--a sense of exotic mystery, interesting history, beautiful vistas, unspoiled beaches, and friendly people. It is an interesting mix of north Africa, Spain, and France and is separated from Spain only by the 20 miles of the Strait of Gibraltar. Frequent ferries make the short crossing from Europe each day which takes 30 minutes to one hour depending on the season. The house is 5-10 minutes walk from the port, close to the Musée de la Kasbah and within walking distance from all the city attractions. It is very close to the Socco, where you can browse all the wonderful Moroccan crafts, and a 15 minute walk from the nearest beach. The Kasbah lies at the top of the Medina market place.

It is very close to the Socco, where you can browse all the wonderful Moroccan crafts, and a 15 minute walk from the nearest beach. The Kasbah lies at the top of the Medina market place. I chose this residence because it has a lovely bohemian feel and you are right in the heart of the bustling Tangiers culture. As you may know Tangiers is famous for being the hideaway of numerous celebrated artists as poets such as Paul Bowles, Cecil Beaton, William Burroughs, Joe Orton, Jack Kerouac, Truman Capote and Allen Ginsberg, The house is located half way down a small dusty alley-way so you are right in the heart of the real Morocco. It is old, traditional and rustic in style with coloured and white-washed walls throughout. The house has all mod cons including free Wifi throughout the house and on the roof terrace. Please note that this house is not in a tourist area and your neighbours will be Moroccans. This house suits someone who would like to be immersed in Moroccan culture. The house has two double bedrooms (4.5m x 2.1m), one bedroom with two single beds (4.1m x 2.1m), a main bathroom with bath and shower (2.5m x 2.1m), a second bathroom with toilet (1.55m x 2.2m), a dining room/living room (4.5m x 2.1m), a kitchen (3m x 2.1m), a balcony (1m x 4m) and a roof terrace (5m x 5.2m). There is also a flat screen wall-mounted TV with satellite broadcast. And an extra double sofa-bed. Please note that two of the bedrooms do not have windows (which is common in Moroccan town houses to keep the rooms cool). There are steep stairs between each floor (see photos) - the house is not recommended for those with mobility problems or very young children. The house will be thoroughly cleaned for you before arrival. My agent Abdellah, a charming Moroccan man who is studying at university can meet you at the Hotel Continental which is very close to the house- and accompany you to the house to explain how everything works. If you would like Abdellah to meet you at the port or airport there is an extra charge of 100 dirhams or 10 euros (for meet and greet at port) or 300 dirhams or 30 euros (for meet and greet at airport). If there are any questions or problems during your stay, Abdellah can sort everything out for you. I am also available by phone or email.. More

About the neighbourhood
Getting around Walking is perhaps the best way to see Tangiers. Petit taxis are common, but if it is unmetered make sure you agree on a price first. Tangiers is very easy to navigate; the two main roads are Boulevard Mohamed V which runs from near the Medina through the ville nouvelle and Boulevard Mohamed VI which runs along from the beachfront from the port to Malabata. The Medina area is a complex array of alleyways some of which can only be accessed on foot. Boulevard Mohamed V has a whole range of clothes shops, pharmacies and cafes as well as many hotels. Half an hour's drive outside Tangiers will take you into beautiful countryside and beaches perfect for walking and admiring the views. . What to See The Kasbah – see the tomb of Ibn Battouta, a 14th century famous traveller wh...
How to get there
The house is 5-10 minutes walk from the port in TangiersThere are several ways to get to the port in Tangiers:1.Take a cheap flight to Spain (Malaga is the closest airport). From Malaga take a bus (two hours) or hire a car (one and a half hours) to the Spanish port of Algerciras. Or you could take a flight to Gibraltar which is only a 30 minute bus ride to the port of Algerciras.From Algerciras it is best to get the free bus to Tarifa (about 30 minutes) from where you can get the high speed FRS catamaran boat to the port of Tangiers in the heart of Tangiers city, which takes 35 minutes (one hour in the winter). The boat leaves every 2 hours from Tangier and the last FRS boat of the day returns to Tarifa at around 22.00. The cost is around 37 euros for one way, or 67 euros for a return t...
