Our Stay in Fez was great. The house is every bit as beautiful as the photos, if not more so. The roof terrace is just amazing. Rachid, wife and mother-in-law are delightful and made as feel very welcome. Everything was organized extremely well. The meals, breakfast and dinner. were excellent; it was great to have real Moroccan home cooking. Going to the Hammam was amazing and so was the cooking lesson. We will definitely go back and recommend the place.
It was, however, at times slightly difficult to get in touch with Edgar before our stay.
Alquilamos el Riad un grupo de amigos (8) y solo tenemos buenas palabras para describir la experiencia. El edificio está muy bien, y el servicio aun mejor, Rachid se encarga de resolver cualquier duda y nos ayudó con la contratación de un guía y una visita a Meknes en furgoneta. Además disfrutamos de una cena fabulosa en calidad y cantidad. Lo recomiendo al 100%.
Como sugerencia mejor contactar con Edgar por teléfono una vez aceptada la estancia, así se agiliza el proceso.
Wow! The pictures do not do this place justice! It was beautiful and after I took a tour of the crafts of Fes, I was even more appreciative of the intricacies of the plaster and woodwork. It is a huge riad with 3 bedrooms and ensuites on the upper floor, another bedroom and bathroom on the middle floor, and a beautiful terrace with awesome views of the Medina. It was located right in the Medina which was great for my small group to explore. The hosts, Rachid and Oulyia, were amazing, meeting us at the Bab Guissa gate to guide us to the house (a must). Oulyia also cooked dinner for us 2 nights and it was two of the best meals of our trip! We just let her know in the morning and the cost was very reasonable, especially related to the quality. A special treat was Oulyia taking us to the traditional Hammam. It was an amazing authentic experience, highly recommended! Edgar was a little tough to reach, but it all worked out and we had a great time in Fes!
Alquilamos el riad para un dia y quedamos encantados, Eramos 7 y teniamos espacio de sobra.un pequeño problema fue que la casa estaba un poco fria pero en cada habitacion habia un calefactor y monton de mantas asique enseguida lo solucionamos. Raschid y su mujer nos recibieron con un te tipico marroqui y fueron encantadores y muy serviciales durante toda la estancia. Raschid fue a recogernos a la Puerta de la medina y nos guio hasta localizar el lugar. La unica pega que le pongo es la dificultad de contactar con ellos antes de llegar, primero tuve que contactar con Edgar, que no me contestaba a los emails, pero en cuanto le envie un mensaje todo fue rodado y me puso en contacto con Raschid con el que consegui contactar enseguida. Recomiendo mucho pasar los dias en Fez en este riad
It was an amazing experience and the Medina was incredible. The Riad was exactly as it was portrayed in the pictures and was just as beautiful in real life. Rachid and Olaya were fantastic hosts and helped us to organise our trip around Morocco with a wonderful driver Adil!! Olaya prepares some of the best meals we have ever had and would highly recommend that you dine in the Riad. We cannot recommend this place enough and had a fantastic traditional Moroccan experience.
Six of us have just spent four great days in Fez, in this beautiful old medina house. Fez is a city which seems to have barely changed in a thousand years....life still revolves around the mosques, the family, the souks, the hammams and the myriad artisan workshops...and staying in Edgar's house is an opportunity to immerse yourself in it all. Listening to the hundreds of muezzins calling the faithful to prayer across the city at sunset from the roof of the house, has to be one of the most memorable experiences...of my life! The medina is a maze of ill lit, confusing alleyways, but wonderful Ouliya, who looks after the house and guests, can arrange a guide ....this is highly advisable! She is also an amazing cook....and for about 100dhrms each per meal, will produce a fantastic evening feast for you. This is not only a great way to try delicious, authentic, Moroccan food....it also means you dont have to leave the house and try to navigate the alleyways in the dark! (Not for the faint hearted!). We ended up eating in every night....and it was a high spot of our trip. Oulyia also gave two of us a short course in cooking Moroccan food....highly recommended for foodies!
NB Although the days in January can be quite warm....it can be very cold at night. There are some heaters and plenty of blankets...but these old houses are built primarily to cope with summer heat, not cold, damp winters. Take plenty of warm clothes....and slippers for the stone floors. The plumbing is a bit haphazard, too....but it basically works.....and you could always use the hammam, like the locals!
We had a fabulous stay....its a beautiful old house, in a wonderfully vibrant and exotic setting....
Thank you, Edgar, Ouliya and Rachid.
Super expérience. Rachid et Oulya sont très accueillant et les talents de cuisinière cette dernière seront la cerise sur le gâteau de votre séjour. Maison d'hôte authentique, décoration typique. Je recommande sans réserves!
Great value for money. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the riad, which was beautifully decorated and roomy. Lots of different places to hang out, including breakfast up on the terrace! Edgar's advice was good to bring warm layers during the winter in the riad as although there are space heaters, there are lovely high ceilings and no central heating.
Rachid and Ouliya were terrific!! We had a meal in one night and the food was delicious and plenty of it. As were the breakfasts and she accommodated our special requests. Rachid was very helpful, meeting us at the gate at Bab Guissa and walking us to the riad when we arrived. He also booked taxis to/from the airport for us and a guide (we requested to see the sights and NO shopping, which the guide did) which we really appreciated. We had a fantastic visit to Fez and living right in the medina in a traditional riad was a big part of it. Before our arrival Edgar hadn't replied quickly to my email, but when I texted him he replied right away. I would definitely recommend staying at this lovely riad!!
We the most amazing experience in Fes. Rachid and Ouliya were exceptional hosts, and made us feel so welcome. Rachid very kindly collected us to and from and train station and was available the whole time if we needed help with anything. The Riad itself is spectacular. A 400 year old building with traditional accents and quirks. The view from the rooftop terrace overlooking the medina is amazing. Ouliya went out of her way to provide for us, and we ate her delicious cooking every night for dinner! It's definitely worth doing, best food we had in Morocco. Breakfast was also looked forward to eagerly. They also organised a guide to show us around the medina, and we had a driver take us around the outskirts and to look outs. Ouliya also very kindly gave us some fruit from the markets for our long journey on the train. I can't fault our experience at all, we will never forget it!
Hello! I can only add to the positive comments already made and agree with the previous guests reviews. This was a lovely stay in a lovingly restored Riad in the Medina! So cool. Edgar owns the place but has a married couple, Ouliya and Rachid who keep things running smoothly with a warm and loving touch. I would suggest to bring slippers as the floor is cold. Also... Take a cooking class with Oulyia! My son who is a picky eater claimed her dinners were the best in all of Fez. We also glad we stayed here! Thank you Ouliya and Rachid :)
Propriétaire d'un appartement spacieux en plein cœur d'un des quartiers les plus trendy de Bruxelles, Edgar n'en est pas moins un hôte généreux. Cultivé et d'un commerce délectable, ses offres et conseils méritent l'attention du voyageur en quête d'un accueil détendu et de qualité.
Edgar Szoc est avant tout un homme de réseaux. Des réseaux tissés patiemment. Et tout seul. Sa famille a vécu le déclin en Italie et en Pologne. De plein fouet. Son père a fui la pays devant les échecs électoraux. Le jeune Edgar en tirera une leçon dont il se servira pour établir sa propre destinée : anticiper les événements avant qu’ils ne vous écrasent. "Il a toujours un coup d’avance sur les autres", concède une collaboratrice du ministre Nollet.
Etudiant plutôt doué de l'ULB, il y croise une certaine Emily Hoyos. Ils se reconnaissent des atomes crochus. Ils feront un bout de chemin ensemble : Edgar Szoc travaillera pendant 18 mois ans au cabinet de Jean-Marc Nollet, alors ministre des devoirs. Un passage déterminant, qui lui permet d’entrer dans la famille écologiste.
Sa connaissance des chiffres et sa capacité à assimiler les matières alcoolisées lui ouvrent des portes. Il finit par s’imposer à la CSC. De là, construire ses réseaux d’influence.
Il se glissera alors presque naturellement dans toute une série de conseils d’administration publics et parapublics. Edgar Szoc est notamment administrateur de la RTBF. Il est aussi, et en même temps, membre du conseil économique et social de la Région wallonne. Il a lâché - comme à regret - la CSC pour rejoindre Etopia. Des postes stratégiques. Edgar Szoc est ainsi devenu l’un des hommes de l’ombre les plus puissants de Bruxelles.
