Interaction with guests
Sayeed will take care of you like family. If you would like to have a home-cooked traditional Moroccan meal, this will be arranged for you.
The house is located in the heart of the ancient medina, within the Golden Triangle of the medina. The area has not been gentrified. The neighbours are lovely, and you will have the chance to experience real Moroccan life, not just be a tourist.
The house is 5 minutes from the nearest taxi rank. There you can get a Petit-Taxi to the Ville Nouvelle for about 2 Euros. There is a secure car-park for hired car 5 minutes away. Car hire companies are located at the airport and in the Ville Nouvelle. Further you can get a shared taxi to nearby towns, or alternatively hire a car and driver for the day for 80 Euros.
Other things to note
Please note that the house is over 4 floors, and like all medina houses has steep steps. Sadly unsuitable for guests with mobility/health issues.
Out of respect, we have a strict no alcohol policy in the house. Several large hotels serve alcohol, so you can have a lovely sunset drink, or else why not enjoy a "Moroccan whiskey" (mint tea ) on our terraces instead.
No photography of our neighbours from the roof terrace please. Thank you!

I am an absolute Moroccophile! Welcome to Fez......I fell in love with Fez 10 years ago...Sunset, the call to prayer, and that was it. Favourite authors: Paul Bowles, Mohamed Choukri, Tahar Ben Jalloun.... Favourite movie: The Sheltering Sky and Hideous Kinky, both of course about Morocco. Favourite food, Moroccan, Italian and French.
Restoring a house in the medina has been the result of an ongoing love affair with Fez, and here we are now, Dar Sienna. Welcome-Marhaban.
Meeting guests is just the most perfect way to share my enthusiasm for and love of this magical city.
My motto is: No regrets.
