In the medieval heart of the ancient Fes medina you will discover a 600 year old traditional home that has been lovingly restored to its former glory by an architect from Iraq and a graphic designer from Norway.
Follow Sbaa Louyate - the Street of Seven turns - to Dar Seffarine, hidden in the oldest part of the medina. Here you will feel the special magic of Fez, an important spiritual and cultural centre of the Islamic world, and experience traditional Moroccan living at its best.
The seven bedrooms are decorated with hand painted chests, antique wardrobes and have small mosaic-inlaid ensuite bathrooms. The central courtyard and the roof terrace are the focus of communal life, and it is here you will enjoy a traditional Moroccan breakfast of fresh juices, fresh bread, eggs and cheese. Dinner can be arranged (preferrably in advance) or there are a number of restaurants within walking distance.
Fes' vast and bustling medina is on your doorstep and Seffarine Square, where the copper craftsmen work, and the famous (but smelly) colourful tanneries
are also within walking distance. Being an old home and traditional riad there are a lot of stairs, but if you can climb your way to the rooftop the
vista will be definitely worth your while.
