Following the success of the restoration of Riad Medina, we have purchased a second house nearby and we are in the process of restoring. We are planning on restoring to the same high standards as Riad Medina.
Our second house is much larger than Riad Medina and very grand.
To date we have fully renovated the ground floor.
If you would like to see the work that we are undertaking on our second house then please ask the riad manager who will be pleased to arrange a visit.
DAR MEDINA FEZ
We have used local skilled labour, all features are handmade using traditional skills that have been acquired through the centuries and passed down from generation to generation.

This is the Moroccan term for the intricate tile designs you see all over Fez. We believe that not only is it better for the environment to use recycled materials wherever possible, but it also preserves the character of the Riad (although inevitably we have had to use some new materials). So …………. Whilst some of our floor tiles are chipped please bear in mind that they are over 400 years old and part of the history of Fez.
Unfortunately the original plaster frieze above the door to the lounge was so badly damaged that it could not be saved so ……… we used a local artisan to recreate a copy of the original. The panels above the door and around the window ARE NOT moulded but handcrafted from plaster.
