Activities/Attractions: Fez (Fes) was the capital of Morocco for all together more than 400 years, home of the oldest university in the country and the leading cultural and religious centre. Fez is also the oldest and largest medieval city in the world, a city that is almost unchanged through the modern ages and still most definitely alive.
Fez is a place that stimulates your senses, with haunting and beautiful sounds, infinite visual details and unfiltered odours. More than any other city in Morocco, it seems to exist suspended in time somewhere between the Middle Ages and the modern world. As with other Moroccan cities, it has a French-built Ville Nouvelle – familiar and modern in appearance and urban life – but a quarter or so of Fes' 800,000 inhabitants continue to live in the extraordinary Medina city of Fes El Bali.
The people of Fes have a reputation throughout Morocco as successful and sophisticated. Just as the city is situated at the centre of the country, so are its inhabitants placed at the heart of government, and most government ministries are headed by Fassis. What is undeniable is that they have the most developed Moroccan city culture, with an intellectual tradition, and their own cuisine, dress and way of life.
"Thanks very much for this pleasant stay there in Mabrouka, it was really incredible. We loved being there, we felt like we were real Moroccan princesses. The food was great, the people really lovely. Thanks very much."
"Our stay with you in Fes was definitely something which will stay with us for a long time - at least until our next visit! Lula and I travel a lot and we stay in all sorts of places but your Guest House really is a jewel - please pass on to all your staff our appreciation for the very efficient, friendly and attentive service they gave us! Thank you again - we will come and stay again and will certainly pass on the 'Mabrouka Secret' but only to people who will appreciate its very particular charm."
"We can't possibly thank you enough for a better introduction to Morocco. Your graciousness and attentiveness are greatly appreciated. We enjoyed exploring Fes during the day and returning the ryad in the evening as if it were our home. Looking forward to future adventures in Morocco. All our best."
"Apart from the bustle of Moroccan life, it was a pleasure to meander down the street to our oasis from "real" life. The royal was larger than most apartments but elegant beyond my dreams."
"This place was a dream come true, we want to go there again. the food and dining was dreamlike, perfect for trips to the medina and other sight seeing."
"This was the nicest and best accommodation we had during our trip. Friendly staff, excellent room and good food / wine as well. We wish you all the best. If we come again to Morocco we would certainly come again."
