Villa Josephine

Top choice heritage hotel in Tangier

A mansion or a palace? It's hard to decide at this restored 1920s residence, once a summer retreat for Moroccan royalty and partying European diplomats. Everything about the 10 rooms here is sumptuous, from the period decor to the up-to-the-minute amenities and service. All have balconies or terraces looking out to sea.

Relax in the delightful gardens or by the pool, or have pre-dinner drinks in the wood-panelled library. For a taste of the old Tangier of the monied classes, this is a real treat.
