About this property

This ancient private riad in Morocco is located in the medina in Fez. The Secret Garden has been renovated with contemporary flair and comfort in mind. In the beautiful traditional garden you can spend hours relaxing in a shady spot enjoying the sounds of birdsong and the tinkling of fountains. Your own private paradise.

Exclusive use of this private riad, Morocco

The riad accommodates between one to nine guests. It will be exclusively yours to enjoy. A delicious traditional Moroccan breakfast is included, and a property manager and cleaner are on hand. With four separate indoor sitting areas, plus others outdoors, there is plenty of space for you to relax and read or to soak up the sun. The four bedrooms are individually decorated. Each have their own bathrooms, two with baths as well as showers. Air-conditioning throughout will keep you cool during the hottest summer months.

The kitchen is large enough for a family or we can supply Moroccan dinners on request. We can also arrange cooking classes if you are interested in learning about local cuisine. The terrace also has a table when you can enjoy al fresco meals, and sun beds. The terrace space is extensive enough to host a yoga or art workshop. The downstairs areas are of sufficient size to hold a writers’ workshop, or to hothouse a creative project.

The Neighbourhood

The Secret Garden is within a 5 minute walk of a public car park. It is near the river: one of the oldest areas of the city. A short walk away are the tanneries and souks, and the largest food souk in the Medina. Also in the area are Place Seffarine and the Al-Qarawiyyin Library and University – the world’s oldest.

Luxury hotel Palais Amani is nearby, and you will find a rooftop bar, restaurant, hammam (spa), and cooking classes.

Home truths

Things the photos don’t tell you, but we do.

  • In Autumn and Winter, please be aware that you are in an old building. The windows and doors aren’t double glazed, and there are some gaps where air can get through. Heating is not the same standard you would expect in a Western house.
  • There is a school nearby, and you may hear children arriving and leaving on schooldays. Otherwise, it’s peaceful.
  • There is an on-site guardian to ensure children don’t bounce balls against the outside wall of the house – and you get a good night’s sleep.

Additional services

Dinner is available with 24 hours notice – a home cooked Moroccan meal of your choice. The cost for a three course meal (salads/main/dessert) is €25 per person, excluding drinks.

We can arrange transfers from the airport or train station. The cost is €20 from the airport or €10 from the train station. We can also arrange excursions and transfers to other cities and half or full day tours of the Fez Medina. Ask for details.
