XVth c. old Riad - a Haven of Peace in the Heart of the Medina - Dar 7 Louyatar

Bedrooms 6
Space 4,305 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

Our house is the ideal place to take in the real atmosphere of the middle-age medina of Fes.

Dar7louyat is located close to the famous University of al-Karaouine (or Karaouine mosque), recognised by th UNESCO as the world's oldest university. As Titus Burckhardt put it in his books, you can still feel the peculiar atmosphere of spirituality and scholarship of that place. Just outside the house, you can drown yourself among all types of crafts. You will even meet some craftmen who are the last ones to know their specific skills. Such are the horn combs maker or the cedarwood buckets maker. Going for a quiet and watchful walk will take you centuries back at the time of real handmade crafts

About Bertrand

I am a psychiatrist working in the East of France fond of Morocco, its traditions, craftwork and architecture. My wife is an artist. We enjoyed the long restoration of this house and now we enjoy welcoming people in it to share a real experience of Morocco.

Bertrand purchased this house in 2001

Why Bertrand chose Fes El Bali

Our house is 15th century old and was proceeded a long and careful restoration according to the traditional rules of local architecture and the artistic trends of the owner.

Dar 7 Louyat is located near Seffarine square where coppersmiths can be seen hammering their wares into shape, and close to the Qarayouine mosque, from which the call of the muezzin beats the rythm of the day.

Dar 7 Louyat can accomodate up to 16 people. Comfort for a relaxing stay is provided thanks to 6 large bedrooms each with its own bathroom.

Our housekeeper and our cook will make sure your stay be comfortable, providing all the arrangements you need and cooking wonderful morrocan cuisine.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional location, in the heart of the oldest part of the medina (so hard to find!)

Contrasting relaxing peace and quiteness inside the house (no TV!)

excellent séjour

  • 4 of 5

En plein coeur de la médina dans un endroit improbable au bout d une ruelle, un lieu magnifique tres bien restauré avec un accueil tres attentionné et une cuisine mémorable. Peu de restaurants proches, rester diner sur place dans la cour est une excellente option! A recommander.

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Fes Saiss

The nearest entrances to the medina are Bab Rcif (every taximan knows this entrance to the medina) and Bine Lamdoun (a parking lot where you can leave your car safely).

The only access is hence by walking (or donkeying!).

Airport transferts can easily be arranged, guests will be taken to the house by the driver. Guests can also be met on arrival at the nearest parking.

take the motorway...,

Local cuisine

You will be able to enjoy a particuliar good morocoan food if you choose to ask our cook to prepare breakfasts and lunches for you.

(See our website for some examples of what can be prepared)
