We made our first. 5-night, visit to Morocco for the Sacred Music Festival in Fes, and we were completely captivated by the city, its generous people and the music - everything from flamenco to jazz to fado....
However, the thing that held it all together for us was the perfect hospitality offered by Kacem and his team in the Riad Ahlam. First, we have certainly never been in such a beautiful house, anywhere. It's cool in the afternoon, completely restful in the courtyard with the tinkling fountain and the rooms are very spacious, comfortable and designed and furnished to make you feel at home. We had the luxury of having been in two of them, as Kacem upgraded us - as an act of generosity - halfway through. Nights were completely quiet and restful, leaving us ready for another day in nearby bustling Talaa Kbira, exploring other parts of the city and the surrounding countryside. The location of this riad is perfect for exploring the medina.
Kacem and his colleagues are knowledgeable and helpful, always able to answer our questions or make reliable arrangements for us before and throughout our stay. Our days began with a beautiful breakfast in the internal courtyard of fruits, yoghurt, eggs, breads, coffee...all delicious and plentiful. In the evenings, when we were not going to a concert, we always had dinner there, feasting on Fatiha’s beautiful tagines or couscous.
In short, a perfect place to stay in terms of its beauty, comfort and location, and one where the team work so hard – and successfully – to make you feel at home.
Try it - you'll be made most welcome.
