Fez Medina was founded in Fall 2000, with the help of a great many people who know far more than I. Fez Medina was founded on a passion and a respect for the medina of Fez, and an urgent concern for the thousands of historic houses in dire need of restoration in the medina, many of which are in peril of being lost forever.

It is a privilege to work with the remarkable artisans whose ancestors built the medina, a joy to care for one of these houses for a time—perhaps a short time in the perspective of the house—and a grave responsibility to care for it well and pass it on intact to future generations. Please read more about our commitment.

The people whose houses are offered on this site have made a rare commitment to bringing a house in the medina back to life. They are friends and colleagues who have thrilled and agonized through the delicate and difficult process of responsibly restoring a traditional house with traditional materials, in a traditional neighborhood in a medieval medina. We are a community of people with a deep commitment to the Fez medina, and we take real joy in being able to welcome selected travelers into the houses over which we have taken such pains. Doing so is to relive our own first moment of awe over these remarkable places, and the sense of wonder to be able to live in the medina like a resident, not a tourist in a hotel. I assure you, it is a completely different experience.

"But how could I live right in the medina of Fez?" "How will I ever find my house?" "How will I know how to get around?" "What if something happens? I don't speak Arabic." I understand all these concerns because I lived as a woman alone in the Medina myself in 1996, while studying Moroccan Arabic at the Arabic Language Institute in Fez. This experience led me to create the full set of services that we offer Fes Medina guests.

Fez Medina is the only organization that offers traditional Moroccan houses for rent with full support services: pick-up and drop-off at the airport by private car, a concierge who helps you arrange day trips and answers questions, and cell phones for guests' use. It is the closest we can get to giving you the feeling that friends are waiting to welcome you to your own house in Fez.

Thank you for your interest in Fez Medina. Our international team looks forward to the opportunity to welcome you to the remarkable medina of Fez.

Very truly yours,

Lori Wood
