Traditional house in Fes medina

Property type house

About the property

This traditional house renovated recently by some of Fez' best craftsmen is a replica in a smaller scale of the stunning palaces which hide behind the high walls of the Medina. The exquisite decoration includes samples of most of Morocco's traditional handicraft: sculpted plaster and painted wood, decorative iron grills, colourful handmade tiles, tadelakt, ceramic, etc...

Furnishing combines the luster of Moroccan tradition with western comfort.

It is ideally situated in a quiet area three minutes's walk from a parking on the main road leading to the heart of the medina and a pleasant stroll away from main historic monuments, craft shops, craftmen's workshops and the famous tanneries. Just around the corner is one of the liveliest food markets in Fez.

On the ground floor two enormous doors open from the furnished patio to a beautiful Moroccan sitting room and to the dining room. On that floor are also located the kitchen and one bathroon.

On the first floor two large bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a double and a single, share a bathroom.

From the roof terrace there are stunning views of the medina with mountains in the background.

Our superb cook will prepare for you to order a variety of dishes and delicious pastry from the exotic fassi tradition.

  • 5 of 5

The house definitely lived up to expectation and more. It was a wonderful experience for our family to stay in such a different spatial environment surrounded by such beautiful examples of traditional craftmanship. The balance of traditional features and modern convenience was very well addressed.

Although so close to the hussle and bussle of the Medina it provided an oasis of peace and relaxation that we really appreciated and we loved the shaded roof terrace with its expansive views.

Amina and Rashid were always very helpful and we were particularly appreciative when they went out of their way to ensure that we had a meal on our first night regardless of some misunderstanding or mix-up of this pre-arrangement.

  • 5 of 5

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fez.Rashid and Aminah were extremely helpful. The house was clean and insulated from the noise outside. It is a 5 minute walk to get to the house after the taxi ride, which is not a problem except maybe when you arrive/leave with your luggage. I would like to add that the house was much better than what can seen in the pictures. The stairs are extremely steep but this was not an issue for us even with a 3 year old."

Linda moradia, localização estranha!

  • 3 of 5

Casa tradicional mesmo, lindamente decorada, TV e equipamentos de cozinha funcionando perfeitamente, aquecimento dos quartos muito bom porém os chuveiros são fracos, frios e mal vedados, banheiro, que já é pequeno, ficava molhado. Localização em meio a vielas dentro da medina o que nos deixou inseguros para andar a noite, antecipamos nossa saída para outro lugar pois não havíamos viajado para o Marrocos para ficar trancados a noite em casa.

casa di charme nel cuore della medina

  • 5 of 5

La casa e'bellissima,accogliente,un tipico riad marocchino in cui la nostra famiglia ha trascorso una vacanza indimenticabile.Preziosissima e'la presenza di Amina e Rachid che ci hanno accolto con molte attenzioni,Amina ci ha preparato colazioni e cena sulla slendida terrazza, ci ha fatto gustare la cucina marocchina con ingredienti di stagione.Rachid e'stato sempre disponibile ad aiutarci per organizzare le escursioni o accompagnarci per il labirinto di viuzze della Medina.Grazie tante a tutti e due per le chiacchierate, per la gentilezza e per come gestite la casa,con amore per la vostra terra!!!

Personnel désagréable et pas honnête

  • 4 of 5

Le riad est agréable et bien situé. Dommage que le couple qui s'en occupe pour le compte de la propriétaire n'est pas du tout sympathique ni souriant. Rachid et Amina insistent beaucoup pour nous vendre les repas et les excusions. Le petit déjeuner est très décevant (galettes de semoule complètement cramées...). Les repas sont hors de prix. Le ménage quotidien est très mal assuré. Mauvaise surprise du dernier jour : le transport que nous avons commandé pour aller à l’aéroport nous a été facturé le double de celui que la propriétaire nous a indiqué avant notre arrivée. Rachid nous a répondu que la propriétaire n'y connait rien car elle ne vit pas au Maroc !

Owner's Response: Nous avons 47 autres commentaires totalement positif, la plupart très élogieux pour notre personnel. Je suis désolée que ce client ne se soit pas senti bien chez nous car d'habitude le personnel a plutôt tendance à traiter les clients comme des invités. Mais il est possible qu'ils réagissent différemment selon chaque circonstance.

"nous avons passé un très agréable séjour hormis quelques remarques sur une panne du four et de téléphone(non solutionnée avant notre départ)à préciser que la TV ne reçoit que les chaines locales. le ménage indiqué comme fait quotidiennement dans l''annonce n''a été fait qu''une seule fois au prétexte de ne pas nous déranger. le repas commandé était parfait mais plus cher que le prix fixé avec la propriétaire. la personne s''occupant de la maison nous a demandé un pourboir à la fin du séjour ce qui n''était pas prévu."

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Nearest Restaurant
200 Metres
Car: not necessary

Very good motorways link Fez with most of Morocco's main cities. Access from the motorway to the parking situated 200m from the house is very easy.

We provide a detailed itinerary and/or transfers.

Fes Medina , a medieval labyrinth of more than 9,400 pedestrian streets funded in the 9th century, is the oldest medina in Morocco and one of the largest and best preserved in the Arab world. It was declared Worl Heritage Monument by Unesco in 1981. It maintains ancient craft traditions and in its narrow streets one gets bewildered by the perfume of spices, sweets and dried fruit, the colours of its craft shops and the flurry of its food markets.

Within 70km of Fez one can visit the imperial town of Meknes, the ruins of the Roman city of Volubilis, the easy going mountain towns, cedar forests and ski slopes of the Middle Atlas mountains.
