Dar El Menia lies in the heart of Fes (Fez) Medina, former imperial capital of Morocco and the world’s largest medieval medina. Fes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but it is not a museum it is a living, breathing city and Dar El Menia provides the perfect luxurious base to begin exploring the old and the new. This dar, or courtyard house, is at least 250 years old and has recently been completely restored using local craftsmen, techniques and materials.Situated adjacent to Talaa Kebira, the main artery of the walled city, Dar El Menia offers easy access to all major sites of interest, the water clock, tanneries, hammams, mosques and medersas as well as being perfectly placed to begin roaming the medina’s narrow car free streets, which contain all manner of crafts, markets, restaurants, cafés and personality.This fully restored dar is focused around its traditional courtyard, which, with its original marble floor, patterned tiles (zellig) and plaster carving, provides natural air conditioning and is the heart of the house around which all accommodation is based.Dar El Menia is run and owned by an Englishman, Graham Coules. He has employed an old medina family who reside nearby. Um Klthum is the maid and is a superb traditional Moroccan cook, Abdul speaks English, French and Spanish and enjoys sharing his knowledge of the medina, Mostapha is the custodian of the house, he worked on the restoration project and is always on hand with a smile and a few words of Arabic to teach. One of the unique features of Dar El Menia is the opportunity this local family provides for further in-depth exploration of the people and culture of Fes.Four bedrooms over three floors all having access to a private or en-suite bathroom Three of our rooms have double king-size bed which can be split into singles as per guest’s instruction and two of our rooms can be arrange to accommodate three people per room Evening meals by arrangement (additional information given upon booking) One additional ground floor toilet with wash facilities Two kitchens – one on ground floor, one on roof-terrace (both fully equipped with tea and coffee provided) Moroccan communal salon Internal balcony overlooking marble floored, open air, inner courtyard Large roof-terrace with kitchen, sitting and dining areas – views over the Merenid tombs, Medina and mosques Additional dinning area adjoining the ground floor kitchen and Moroccan salon with locally hand crafted cedar banquets and matching tables Chambermaid service Travel cots/stair gates available upon request Heaters are provided for the winter months in every bedroom and lots of warm blankets There is a cinni fan in every room Taxis arranged to and from airport/train station Up to two people 140€ per night whole house rental Three people 170€ per night whole house rental Four people 200€ per night whole house rental Five people 230€ per night whole house rental Six people 260€ per night whole house rental And so on up to ten people max 380€ per night whole house rental
