Welcoming, traditional and accessible. At the end of a winding narrow medina street yet only 10 minutes walking to the famous Blue Gate, Bab Boujloud, the house is convenient to sights, markets and restaurants. Enjoy your own private space at the end of a hectic day.
My home is a traditional open-air courtyard house. All windows open to the interior on this style of architecture. The furnishings are traditional Moroccan style couches and tables, comfortable beds, and Moroccan artisanal accent pieces.
"I grew up with Linda, so I know her for 50+ years. I recently stayed with her in Fez. She is very knowledgeable about the city & can advise tourists on the best places to visit, eat and shop. She is very conscientious, honest and reliable. She will be a very caring host, wanting to make sure her guests are safe and that they enjoy Fez. Linda spent a lot of time and effort to restore her home to its original beauty. She will be very responsive and can answer questions about touring in Morocco. She helped me plan a trip outside of Fes. I spent time with Abdou. He is very handing at fixing things. As a native, he is a very good resource. He is very intent on having visitors be safe and wants to make sure they enjoy his country. People visiting Linda's home will feel very well cared for- staying in an authentic, old Fez home."

- The house is on three levels with old-style stairs that may be difficult for small children or people with knee/back problems so please ask.
I also ask that you respect the age of the house. Treat it with reasonable care and respect. It's not perfect but it's my home and I love it.
If anything goes wrong, please call the manager for help. No unregistered guests are allowed in the house and this must be strictly enforced.
- Fez Medina can be confusing for newcomers at first. It helps to make a note of your address and some nearby landmarks. Take a phone number in case you get very lost but don't be afraid to ask for help on the street too. People can be very friendly even if some ask for a small tip.
- Coffee and tea are always available; breakfast can be provided on request and other meals can be arranged for a fee. Or do your own cooking. Again, you can arrange for as much or as little service as you prefer. Its up to you.
I am newly retired after working in Fez for 15 years at the American Language Center. My current plans are to spend more time with family and develop my interest in lino-cut print-making. While I am away Abdou will be the house manager and available for all guest needs.
I love everything about Morocco, especially the dramatic colors and architecture, and plan to spend many more years here. Fez is the heart of Morocco, the spirit and the soul, the last authentic Imperial City. Completely modern in the Ville Nouvelle and over a thousand years of history in the Medina, how can you not love that? So please, be my guest and make yourself at home in this unique and amazing place.
