Discover the world's most beautiful medina
It can take years to discover all of the charms of Fes and the Arab world’s most beautiful medina. Its spirituality has made it a capital of the Muslim world in the same vein as Baghdad, Damascus or Grenada. Recognized on the UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites, Fes is a timeless city, vibrant and diverse that has preserved its originality and renovated its architectural past. It is not easy to get under Fes’ skin, you have to get lost in its mazes of alleyways only accessible on foot and let yourself be surprised and dazzled by its architectural marvels: mosques, medersas, ramparts, palaces, squares… You have to visit the artisans whose multiple skills remind one of another day and age. Going on holiday in Fes is like jumping into a whirlpool of history.
A riad in the medina
Even though Fes doesn’t have as many riads as Marrakesh, it does count a few dozen, and we have selected a few of the best and built strong relationships with them over the years. We chose these riads based on the criteria of location (how easy it is to access), reduced capacity (number of rooms), quality and authentic cuisine, reasonable prices, and of course their overall irreproachable service and welcome. That being said, let us know exactly what you’re looking for and we’ll find the accommodation in Fes that suits you best.
A riad recognized by Relais&Chateaux, riad Fez is known for its luxury, its food and its refines services. Its Andalusian pavilion boasts a lounge and a bassin of Alhambran allusion that brings coolness and vibrance to the atmosphere of Fes’ most stylish riad. With views over the medina and the Atlas Mountains, Riad Fes is a great place for a relaxing holiday. As a client, you will enjoy friendly and personalized service. A pool, terrace, solarium, hammam, massages, beauty treatments, and wifi are just a few of the many offerings of the riad that make for an unforgettable experience in Fez.
Le luxury hotel Palais Jamaï is an authentic reflection of Fes and its traditions as cultural and religious capital of Morocco. Built in 1879, in a refined Moorish style, it became the residence of the Grand Vizir of Jamaï. Looming over the city, it offers one of the best views over the medina.
