“We stayed at Bertrand's magnificent riad for a few days with a group of friends to celebrate my 70th birthday and it was an unforgettable and marvellous experience. I have been to Fes before a number of times but this time was definitely the most wonderful stay in a beautiful and superbly comfortable home, at the end of a maze of narrow, dark lanes in the medina. Then you enter through the ancient doors and the Wow factor is quite overwhelming. We explored the city but also enjoyed just gazing out over it from the roof terrace in the sun. And thank you Bertrand for organising a delicious birthday meal with the best chocolate birthday cake I could have had. I hope you have just as good a time when you come to stay in our home in Spain next February and hope it may be possible to visit Fes again one day for more magical days in your riad. Plym and Tony (and thanks also from our friends who were totally charmed by their first experience of Morocco.)”
Bertrand's reviewsAs a host (7)
“Nous avons fait un échange simultané avec le merveilleux Riad de Bertrand et Soan durant les vacances d'octobre. Tout y est magnifique: l'architecture, la decoration, les chambres spacieuses, la terrasse sur le toit...Un vrai palais! Naima, à demeure dans le riad, est aux petits soins avec tout le monde. Elle a été disponible pour nous emmener faire son marché, nous montrer les recettes délicieuses faites par Radidja et emmener les femmes au hamam. Elle restera longtemps dans notre coeur. fez est une ville qui mérite d'y passer du temps. La medina est vaste et les alentours sont magnifiques. Au final, une très belle experience qu'on recommande vivement; Valerie et Bertrand”
“This is a beautiful Riad to stay in Fes. Very stylish and central. It is large and spacious, and the rooftop terrace was terrific. We enjoyed some meals cooked by staff, who were excellent and always helpful. ”
“A palace! Bertrand and family stayed at our home last year and were wonderful guests. It was a real privilege to stay at Bertrand's very special riad in April 2016. The onsite staff were wonderful. The food was sublime. Hisham was super friendly and hospitable. We brought our young children and they coped brilliantly with Fez ...the riad was like a fairytale castle to them. The 10 years worth of careful restoration is wonderful and there's an amazing view of the city from the roof. We'll never forget our stay here!”
“A wonderful experience in a spectacular setting. Our 7 day stay included breakfast and our arranging for dinner. Dinner prepared by Myriam gave us Moroccan dishes every night sitting in the courtyard with everything rising above us. It was unique to have a central Medina location and come home to excellent food. Suggest using their pickup service to get here through the maze of alleyways. Moroccan SIM card proved useful. ”
“The most beautiful house, or better palace right in Fez Medina. If you love the orient and Morocco a must see.”
“i had a wonderful week at bertrand's place. it's an oasis in the midst of the medina of magical fez and an ideal base to explore the surroundings. wonderful staff too, recommended, highly! ”
