I was born and brought up in the Fez Medina and know it very well. I began working by selling souvenirs on the street and worked my up to become the site manager on many renovations - including "Riad Zany", made famous by the book "A House in Fez". I continue to work as a translator, maintenance manager and general assistant for a number of long term foreign residents in Fez.
Dar Sondos was a labour of love - I have spent several years, together with my friends, making this traditional house as beautiful as possible so I can share it with others.
