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.
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.
