Believe or not, this is not a picture of a Swiss village in the Alps but one of the town of Ifrane, just 65 km away from Fes into the impressive cedar-wooded landscapes of the Middle Atlas.
1665 metres (5,460 ft) in elevation, Ifrane was built in the 20s of last century, during the French protectorate in Morocco, as an administrative centre and summer resort for colonial families. Houses were erected after the style of the Alps; the fertile valleys, lush forests, and mountainous lands around did the rest to reinforce the resemblance. Nowadays an ‘Imperial City’, as it boasts a Royal Palace, Ifrane is very popular as a holiday destination amongst locals; but it is still little known by foreign travelers. The surroundings are a National Park, with immense centenary cedar forests where the endangered Barbary Ape can still be spotted, no less than 12 natural lakes, and a ski station nearby.
Founded in 1973, and completely renovated just a few years ago, Michlifen Ifrane Suites & Spa stands majestically in the heart of these generous landscapes. This property is perfect for those who wish to spend time in nature whilst at the same time being able to enjoy the city of Fes (the hotel is located at less than one hour’s drive from the city).
No doubt the best property in the area, Michlifen Ifrane Suites & Spa boast 71 really spacious and cozy units (the smallest room is 30 sq m), 3 restaurants and a British bar, spa, swimming pool, gym, and conference rooms, amongst other facilities.
