About this listing

Beatiful 1 bedroom apartment with large ensuite bathroom (with triangular bath), kitchenette and living area overlooking the vibrant streets of Fez Medina. A wonderful lookout on to this ancient city with access to the wonderful panoramic terrace.

The space

Experience life at the very heart of this vibrant city, the ancient medina (city) of Fez. Over 300 years old, the house was renovated in 2009, and now offers two special one bedroom apartments, each with private bathroom, kitchen, living area and double bedroom. It provides the perfect space to experience medina life, while providing a relaxing retreat to escape to after a day exploring the maze of streets. The incredible roof terrace offers 360 degree views over the medina, the ideal place to relax at sunset and listen to the call to prayer.

This apartment is on the first floor and has a unique calm atmosphere. With its high ceilings, tiled floors and many windows its provides a cool environment in the heat of summer but can be warm and cosy in winter. There is one bedroom (with double bed and desk), living room area with a small kitchen, complete with fridge, and small hob, ideal for preparing light meals. An additional feature is the large bathroom and tadelackt and tile bathtub.

Up a few flights of stairs up is the panoramic roof terrace, which is shared with the top flat, but you will often find you have it all to yourslef. There is a washing machine in the basement of the house.

Due to the many and narrow staircases in the house, it is not suitable for people with mobility impairments. Please note that as the apartment is on the second floor and has many windows, some street noise filters up. With no cars, this is sound of passing donkeys, children on their way to school, friends catching up outside. It will give you a secluded glimpse and opportunity to look down on and observe medina life. It usually quietens down early evening, although in the hot summer months when people make more of their life outside, it may go on a liitle longer.

Interaction with guests

We meet you on arrival and show you to the house, the area and local amenities. Come by for a mint tea with us in the hennah souk when you are tired of wandering the streets of the medina, we will tell you some of the ancient secrets which lie within it!

We had a decent stay with Mohamed's detailed tour around the little streets. It could not be more hospitable welcome with fruit/ bread&butter/ mint tea/ and many more... the terrace was amazing for sunsets or viewing the city as well! Michela was really responsive and knows well about the city. She can even help us with miscellaneous request e.g. airport transfer in early morning. Location was very central and as suggested in the description you do hear noises from time to time. We had a nice stay! Thanks for everything!

Maia's friends, Michela and Mohammed are the nicest people ever! Mohammed waited for us at the medina entrance and made sure everything was fine in the first evening. Can't really say enough nice words about them. Highly recommended!

It was quite a walk through the intense medina of Fez until we arrived at the apartment. So we were happy that Michaele and Mohamed came to pick us up at the entrance of the old town. They made us feel very welcome. The apartment is rather dark, but pleasant, with a nice roof terrace.
