La Maison de Tanger


As you may know - I am currently living in Assilah - yes the blog is called tea-in-tangiers, I know
but that's just because I have a thing for alliteration, and it had a nice ring to it . . .  but if you look at the small print it does say its about Tangiers, Assilah, and the places in between!
Anyway - the point of that little introduction is to explain how I came to spend the night at this lovely place : La Maison de Tanger!




Having been invited to a little soiree one Friday evening in Tangiers, I thought I would spoil myself and stay somewhere nice overnight rather than driving back late.
We decided on La Maison for a few reasons - some practical (parking,central etc) and others just because it looked pretty!




And it didn't disappoint on any accounts.



It is a beautifully restored and gracious home nestling surprisingly close to the grand socco.
Take a right at the arches -  just before you hit the metal workers.
I know the word "oasis" gets used an awful lot when talking about places to stay in morocco,
but this really is an oasis in the middle of the urban chaos of Tangiers.



The images above all give you the "big picture" which is undeniably impressive
but
to me
its always the details that make the difference . . . 



and La Maison de Tanger is full of details like this that make your stay there just that little bit more special
