Dar Al Waha's location alone makes it a perfect home base for a holiday of adventure in the streets of the medina. This compact traditional home is situated on the main street within the UNESCO protected Medina of Fes, and is only a minutes' walk from the famous Bab Boujloud (Blue Gate), restaurants and markets, and within meters of the medina's best sites: Madrasa Bou Inania and the mysterious Water Clock.

Newly restored, Dar Al Waha is a beautiful traditional home that follows the classic Moroccan floor plan. It offers the best in self catering with markets brimming with fresh produce and Moroccan specialities all 3 mins walk from your front door. As for views, there is a magnificent terrace over two levels, giving you fantastic views over the northern half of the medina, including views of the Merenid tombs, the northern Fort (Borj Nord) and surrounding ramparts of the medina. From the terrace, you can also watch the procession of medina life on the main street below, the way it has always been for over a thousand years. In this traditional Moroccan home, we have included the creature comforts of western style bathrooms and plentiful hot water to ensure you are as comfortable as a sultan!

2 double bedrooms, the main bedroom has a queen sized bed and a single bed, while upstairs, the queen sized double bedded room enjoys an ensuite. Main bedroom bathroom has a large corner bath. Perfect house for 2 couples or a family. Most guests do not want to leave!

The Fes region

Fes is the best base from which to explore Northern Morocco. As we are share staff with Guesthouse Dar El Hana, we are able to offer you a number of additional services such as transport with a Driver to enjoy day trips out to other regions, trips to Volubilis and Meknes, and to Chefchaouen etc; or car hire information is also available, and, the opportunity to enjoy Fatima's home cooking which can be delivered for you to enjoy, perhaps on your terrace, weather permitting.

We also have excellent local Guides to offer, as well as a comprehensive list of great local restaurants and activities, some perhaps not listed in Guide books as yet.

In Summer months of July and August we advise the siesta, revelling in the house air-conditioning and emerging to the streets after 5.30pm and the long balmy nights lend well to terrace living, no insects either..temps may reach 43 degrees Celsius.

Winter months of December and January reach temps of 4 degrees and the warm duvets and reverse cycle air-conditioning in bedrooms, plus gas heating in communal areas is effective. The Halka is covered to keep any rain out, but if it does rain, it can be cold and miserable the same as anywhere - so to the DVD's and BackGammon!!

Fes City

Within 100 Metres of the house, visit Medersa Bouanania, the mysterious Water Clock, and the Cafe Clock where free WiFi can be enjoyed and their famous camel burger, together with their Date and almond milk shake are unequalled! take in the scents of the spice markets and aromas or rose and orange blossoms..pluck out the fruits of your choice and local vegetables in season right here right now...tomatoes whose flavours stimulate distant memories. Up near Bab Boujloud, food can be bought at any time...sit in the local cafes and watch the passing parade...5.30 onwards every evening you'll see the "promenade", similar to that in Europe when the Mothers are out parading their glamorous daughters...wearing Djellaba and high heels...not to be missed!

Breakfast breads can be bought anytime, and if you want, you can buy the night before to heat them in the morning, or come out and buy fresh in the morning...and what choices!
