We arrived later than anticipated to Riad Le Calife our first night in Fes. Sumiya, the hostess that evening, was incredibly accommodating and arranged for a "light" supper since we did not reserve dinner in time. It turned out to be an amazing meal and just what we needed to ease into our stay in Fes. The next morning we were greeted by Alex and Yasmine, the owners, and their Jack Russell terrier, Darwin. On Fridays the Medina closes midday for prayer. It was the perfect time to wander about and get lost since our tour guide was scheduled for Saturday. We also got the opportunity to take a cooking class at our Riad with Fatima. It is tradition to cook couscous on Fridays since it is such a lengthy process. I can't explain how great and patient she was with us. If you have the time while in Fes and stay at this Riad I would recommend taking a class with her. The meal turned out wonderful despite us lol. Overall they were very hospitable, the Riad was beautiful and situated centrally in the Medina with panoramic views from the rooftop. And from start to finish they were very accommodating to our schedule. Our flight was at 5 in the morning and they made sure that we were picked up and that a light breakfast was prepared for us. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
