I was there a few months ago and I'm still talking about it to my friends. The place is stunning. From what I have seen, the rooms are all beautiful. It is very well located in the medina and the food is absolutely fabulous. The hosts are great and have really helped me for the rest of my trip too.... More

We had a wonderful time in a gorgeous setting. When you sit around the interior courtyard you almost forget the crazy energy of Fes. Nice rooms, great hosts and good location all contributed to a great visit

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. So perfect for wandering around, still very quite. Dar has got 5 nicely decorated rooms with facilities, small patio where they serve breakfast, on the request also... More

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.

Everything like described, an oasis from calm in the middle of the Medina. Very nice bedroom, decoration, attention and very peaceful! It is also interesting to stay in such a beautiful riad. The best from Fes

This beautiful little gem is a delight! It's owned by a charming Belgian family who have lived in Morocco for over a decade. The Riad itself is clearly a labour of love and they spent five years restoring the building to perfection, paying attention to even the smallest of details. It is scrupulously clean and absolutely stunning, decorated tastefully and... More

This Dar (a riad with a courtyard but no fountain) was built as such over 100 years ago and the exceptional renovation undertaken by the current French owners has produced an authentic experience with all the modern facilities. In addition the family management is attentive and very well-informed. Their promptness in communication would do justice to a five star hotel,... More
