Riad | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
In the heart of the ancient medina of Fez, a stone’s throw away from the famous Kairaouine Mosque, nestles the beautiful Dar Alexander, a 17th Century Merchant’s house, painstakingly restored over 4 years. A monument to the vision and craftsmanship of the Fassi.
Dar Alexander is a stylishly renovated Riad in Fez Medina, Morocco. It is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the medina: An oasis within which to recharge and reflect, the perfect retreat for mind and soul. The owner is flexible about how guests may wish to enjoy this "heavenly gem". If you would like to be looked after by the extremely friendly staff [who speak English, French and Arabic] you can ask for your meals to be provided, laundry prepared and also advice on creating mini trips to suit all your needs. However, if you prefer total privacy, you can rent the house on a self catering basis. The helpful staff will even shop for you!
