As a guest in the Safed Sugar Suite we love to guide you in your stay in Northern Israel. As a photographer I love to explore so on these blog pages I recommend places we've visited, sometimes as a family and sometimes on my own.
When you come to Safed be sure to venture to Hatzor, a short 15 minute drive on Route 89 towards Kiryat Shomonei. There you will find a sweet store called the Moroccan Fantasy. It's off route 89, heading towards the center of Hatzor. After the second gas station you take a right, past Lease4U (my favorite place to rent a car near Safed) and you turn right onto a small road that leads to the Moroccan fantasy warehouse. The first time I went there I truly felt like I had stepped into a time warp. I was greeted by Moroccan Jews, sitting low on their stools, sipping coffee as if they had all the time in the world. There are rows and rows of beautiful rugs, dishes, pots, everything for the home. Clothes that take you back a century, long robes, vases, home furnishings, you name it it's there. There are the most exquisite tables handmade for outdoors with chairs. The only thing missing was the backgammon game. I've never been to Morocco but walking around the Moroccan Fantasy I felt like I took a free trip.
Due to the nature of fragile pieces I wouldn't recommend bringing small children here. If you want to bring home a unique piece of Israel and art I highly recommend the Moroccan fantasy.
