When one gives an 'Excellent' quotation, what is there more to say?
We are regular travellers through different European countries and always looking for the bed and breakfast-formule. Experiences of our friends help us mostly to find suitable residenses. So we leaned on their advices this time too.
A friendly English speaking young men help us through the labyrint of narrow streets to the reserved riad. What seemed to be an anonymous house with only an small nameboard next to its frontdoo seemed to be our riad. A quite lane with a mosque at the corner, a good reference point, for the next 4 days of our staying. Outside it didn't give us a great impression but, once inside in the central patio, we were overwhelmed by its beauty. It made us think of the beautiful places we had seen once in Andalusia. Two large bedrooms on the ground floor and two equally large on the first floor. All rooms have a view on this beautiful patio. On top of the building there are two covered terraces giving an uncomparable sight on the city and the surrounding valley. Our room was large with a double and a single bed, table and bench and a small seperate bathroom in the corner. Everything clean and decent
Our friends in Belgium had warned us to pay attention to the hygienic conditions in Morocco. Their tap water is not drinkable for Europeans but our hostess and her daughter were very aware of our precautions. Bottled water for toothbrushing and drinking was always available. For the same hygienic reasons we chose not to have our meals in town and decided to have them in this riad. In one word: they were EXCELLENT!
One of our best experiences was the warm relations we had with the whole staff. The helpfull attitude of the kitchen- and cleaning help, the warm welcome greetings, everytime we met Fatima,the hostess-mother, and the the fascinating and enriching conversations we had with the daughter and her cousin who occasionally helped a hand. French or English, for both of them it was no problem. Who could ask for more? One can not imagine to have a better starting point for a Morocco travel. And so Fes became our favourite Kingcity, far better than Marakech, which is, for our taste, much too touristy.
