Our Fez Sefrou day trip will start by meeting our professional driver in the lobby of your accommodation on an already appointed time. Fes claim to have stolen the light from Sefrou making it lay on its shadow. Our drive to Sefrou is not a long one (30 mins). Upon our arrival to Sefrou, we will notice the river dividing it in two banks. The small bridges linking it gives an impression of continuum of time and space. The architecture is ornamented by decorations from all the centuries amassed in the medina. The century old culture of tolerance makes it prints on the footsteps of Arabs, Amazigh, and the Jewish populations settled in this small town. The lined shops and bazaars show an unprecedented sing of a fortune that this small medina had long maintained. This day-trip will give us a clear vision on how Moroccans have lived together with full integrity.
Most of the streets in this relatively old medina are stuffed with houses dating back to the early 10th century. This city maintains a tradition of celebrating the season of cherries in a festival since 1920. This festival is seen as the oldest in modern Morocco. The locals celebrate it by electing a beauty queen chosen by a local jury. Our journey includes Bhalil, a small charming village in the Atlas. Its relatively calm atmosphere, fresh air and outstanding natural views seem to be an escape from Fez. The natural views surround this village. They invite us to stay there forever. Some people did and settled in cave houses. This simplicity of life they offer is tempting.
fez to sfrou and bhalil day trip ends by the sightseeing of the caves. Hoping that we are not convinced to stay, our drive back to Fez proceeds. Our professional driver will drive you back to your accommodation or the Airport. Do not miss this opportunity to grasp a feeling of transcendence with the simplicity of these towns and join us in this voyage through time and space to Sefrou and Bhalil.
