We were fortunate to stay here in early January, as a family. The house is absolutely beautiful. Our children were in the suite and it is the most beautiful room I have been privileged to stay in. The family who own the house were friendly and very helpful and arranged a tour and transfer for us. Both were top notch....

Hello, Thank you for your beautiful review for our house. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your children for your first trip in Fez. Coming from New Zealand, you have benefited as it should from these few weeks in Morocco. Maybe one day you'll come back and see us. See you !

It is a little hard to find but it is a real gem hidden in the medina. We had a beautifull room with a comfortable bed. Everything was accounted for and lunch was great. The staff was welcomingen and well willing to help. We really enjoyed our visit and would definetly book here again for a next stay.

Had a great stay in this lovely riad! Decor in the courtyard and room felt very authentic. Location is central in the medina- once you find it, it is not too hard to get your bearings and find your way to the main attractions. Hostess was friendly & welcoming. Downsides to consider if you are planning a longer stay: no...

This Dar has been recently restored with taste. It's very well located in between Talaa Sagira and Talaa Kebira, two of the main axes in Fès medina, not far from beautiful Blue gate.

What a great place. Great, hospitable and very helpful family. A wonderfully maintained traditional house. We felt transported to another world. The food is great. Eating in is definitely recommended. All the help in the world is on offer to make the experience enjoyable and to help you explore the region around Fes too. Can't recommend it enough.

“We saw several rooms, and we would have happily stayed in any of them. Isolation of the kitchen from the courtyard minimizes typical riad noise.”
