An amazing opportunity to enjoy a luxury, private riad with your own cook, housekeeper and house manager.

Dar Mignon has been painstakingly restored by master craftsmen to combine traditional architecture with modern luxury.

The house is arranged around a courtyard and includes a comfortable salon, kitchen dining room, two bedrooms with truly indulgent en suite bathrooms, and a roof terrace with perhaps the finest view of Fes in the medina.

Boligen
Many hundreds of years old, and now completely restored, Dar Mignon is ideally located in one of the oldest parts of the 1,200 year old medina. It is just a 5 minute walk from the Quaraouine Mosque at the very heart of Fes, yet only a 3 minute walk from the entrance to the medina at Bab El Guissa, where taxis are readily available. Quite simply, Dar Mignon is a timeless oasis of calm, comfort and serenity in the heart of the pace and excitement of the medina. For discerning visitors who wish to immerse themselves in traditional Moroccan culture without compromising on comfort, Dar Mignon offers an air of exotic romance, intimacy and tranquility.

From the moment you arrive, everything is designed to make your time in Fes memorable. We can arrange a transfer from the airport, train station, or even the Sahara, if you wish. Once at Bab El Guissa, porters are available to help with your luggage, and you will be escorted to Dar Mignon. After you’ve settled in with a welcoming drink, you can relax with the comprehensive information pack, which will tell you all you need to know to make your visit stress-free.
Depending on your time of arrival, there should be somebody available to answer any questions you might have, and to give whatever guidance you need to ensure your preferences for your stay can if possible be accommodated. Your preferred time for a freshly prepared breakfast will be noted, and the next morning our cook will have arrived in good time to have this ready for you, including freshly squeezed juice in season, either on the roof terrace or the dining room.

We were fortunate that Fes has the finest and most highly skilled artisans in the country. The ceilings and floors in traditional houses are built using cedar; the sound cedar beams in our house were retained, and all the others, which were several hundred years old, were replaced with new solid cedar timbers from the middle Atlas mountains. Although these were considerably more expensive than other timber would have been, they will last far longer, and emit a fragrance like no other wood. Modern drains replaced the ancient ceramic ones, and the floors were then completely re-laid, using traditional ‘zellige’, which are small hand-kilned and hand-cut mosaic tiles, laid in a geometric pattern as is Muslim custom.

The courtyard has a fountain, where traditionally all the water in the house would have been drawn, and this has been hand made in the same fashion as the flooring. The salon has traditional Moroccan banquette seating, but in comfortable and subtle dark blue suede rather than the more usual garish colours and patterns often found in Moroccan homes. There is also a dining room, leading to the kitchen, for when the weather does not lend itself to eating on the roof terrace.
The bedrooms on the first and second floor each have king size (160cm) beds, and the first floor bedroom also has an additional single bed.

So much for the tradition. When built, the house would originally have had no bathroom, probably only a basic charcoal brazier for cooking meals, perhaps a squat toilet, and obviously no electricity. While we have strived to respect authenticity, we’re not mad! So, to make our guests’ stay rather more comfortable and, dare we say, indulgent, we have added the following:-

Downstairs toilet
Kitchen with all modern appliances
Air-conditioning (and heating in winter) in the downstairs salon
Air-conditioning (and heating in winter) in both bedrooms
Complimentary internet connection throughout the house (when working, as Maroc Telecom is not always reliable), and use of the house computer with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)
Sonos sound system throughout the house and on the roof terrace, enabling guests to listen to their respective choices of worldwide radio stations, the extensive in-house music library, as they wish in each part of the house
Luxury marble en suite bathrooms each with solid marble twin washbasins, rainforest shower, and matching black, sunken, oval bath for two
Luxury fluffy towels and Egyptian cotton bed linen imported to our order
Kitchenette on roof terrace with cold drinks fridge, coffee maker and kettle, to save guests having to walk down to the kitchen for a drink
Complimentary tea, percolated or nespresso coffee, and chilled bottled water

Gæsteadgang
As Dar Mignon is an entire private riad, there are no limits to your access. From the roof terrace to the kitchens, everything is available to you.

Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke
Please note that Dar Mignon is a historic building, with steep and winding staircases, and a certain level of physical agility is essential.

Beliggenhed

Fez, Fes-Boulemane, Marokko

Dar Mignon is situated within the walls of the old city - the medina - of Fes. Allegedly the largest pedestrian urban space in the world, the city is genuinely medieval, a truly fascinating labyrinth of souks, alleys, mosques and Medersas. It is the world's best preserved medieval city.

Bab Boujiloud is a short walk or taxi ride away and has a great selection of cafés and street food.

Nearby, opposite the entrance to the beautiful Jnan Sybil gardens, is Mezzanine, a stylish bar restaurant with reasonably priced food and local beers and wine. Try the bissara soup for 3 euros.

I've been in Morocco since 1999. I run a small specialist travel agency that organises bespoke 4x4 tours of the mountains and the Sahara. I'm British, and speak English, French and the local Arabic dialect. I adore travel, food, and culture. Dar Rbab was my home and I hope my guests enjoy this beautiful old house as much as I do.
