About the Host, Anthony
I have been travelling extensively to Morocco since 2005, and have a keen interest in medieval architecture, which is why I have undertaken the ambitious project of restoring two traditional properties, just off the main street in the UNESCO heritage listed Fes (sometimes spelt Fez) Medina. I want guests to have a thoroughly enjoyable time, enjoy their usual creature comforts whilst living in a medieval urban environment that hasn't changed for 1000 years. If you share that same sense of adventure, but you're maybe a bit over doing it rough, then my comfortable, well equipped and ideally located places are perfect for you.
