We stayed 5 nights at the Riad Le Calife and had the most fabulous experience - far exceeding expectations. 5 stars all the way - wonderful comfortable bed, huge thick towels, a plate of fresh fruit and water in our room, and attentive assistance throughout our stay.
Riad Le Calife has been beautifully restored and modernised in a traditional way full of charm with wonderful furnishings, antiques and the delicate scent of orange blossom thoughout. It is situated on the edge of the Medina and away from crowds of tourists, which was wonderful.
The owners Alexandre and Yasmine are both charming and passionate about ensuring their guests have a fabulous experience while in their Riad, and in Fez. Nothing is too much trouble whether it is where to purchase a leather jacket, organising a tour, or help with taxis and restaurants.. Upon arrival they orientated us with a map and valuable information on Fez.
We enjoyed the tranquility inside Le Calife from sitting on the beautiful roof top terrace with wonderful views over the medina or in the oasis inner courtyard. We had 4 dinners at the Riad comprising delicious homemade traditional Fes cuisine, together with numerous pots of Morrocan mint tea and Fatima's handmade pastries when returning from shopping or a tour. We asked if we could have some of the recipes and within 24-hrs of checkout received them by email - many thanks.
As soon as we made our booking, they emailed us almost immediately with a personal welcoming message. They organised our transfer to the Riad door on arrival at Fez Railway Station, and then to the airport on departure. The service from all the staff was impeccable throughout our stay.
As an active couple in our mid sixties we have travelled extensively over the years, and
we highly recommend Riad Le Calife.
