An affordable option for independent travellers


Dar Mystere is a traditional Moroccan courtyard house, or dar, available for up to 6 people to rent exclusively sharing in 3 bedrooms.


From as little as €40 for two sharing per night (plus an additional €20 per extra person), guests have exclusive use of the house.


It is perfectly located for the first time visitor to the ancient medina of the former capital city of Morocco.


Dar Mystere is an affordable option for independent travellers who prefer privacy and value their own space. Single occupants, couples or small parties can experience the harmony, simplicity and beauty of Moroccan life 'behind closed doors' in the mysterious ancient medina of Fez.


We are now accepting booking for the Fez Festival of Sacred Music 2019 which runs from 14 - 22 June this year. There is more information on the festival here.


You can contact us for a personal quote or make a booking through our TripAdvisor page.

Just when you think the world couldn't get any weirder, the online news site L'Observateur reports on President Trump's incredible advice to the Spanish on how to stop illegal migrants US President Donald Trump recently suggested to Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell that Spain should building a "wall along the Sahara" to curb illegal immigration. However, Josep Borrell was not convinced and told a public luncheon in  Madrid this week,"Closing ports is not a solution and building a wall along the Sahara, as President Trump recently suggested to me, is not a solution either". The former president of the European Parliament went on to say that the US president had told him "make a wall along the Sahara". "But do you know how big the Sahara is?" the Spanish minister said in response to Trump. The wall that Donald Trump wants to build on the Mexican border to prevent the entry of illegal immigrants in the United States would measure him 3,200 kilometres and would cost up to 20 billion dollars (17 billion euros), according to some estimates.

The 10th of Muharram, the first month of the year of the Hegira, is a day of celebration among Moroccan families. Dried fruits, toys and new clothes for children are part of  Achoura. For young people and at dusk, it is also an opportunity to light a fire, dance and sing. Ashura is considered in several countries, particularly in the Middle East where the Shiite community is strongly present, as a day of sadness. Indeed, the day of Ashura is for the Shiites an occasion for the commemoration of the massacre of Imam Al-Hussein, son of Ali ibn Abi Talib and his family in Karbala in Iraq in 680. In Morocco, the commemoration of Al Hussein's death boils down to certain songs of a religious nature, but it is above all synonymous with joy and celebration. In addition, Moroccan families buy dates, dried fruits and sweets for visitors, family members, neighbours and especially children. Achoura is also an opportunity to receive gifts and toys: water pistols, Moroccan musical instruments such as "Bendir", a drum on a frame with fingers or "Taarija", a smaller version of the darbouka, also called doumbek and which is a single-headed drum. When night falls, Moroccans light a fire and gather around, singing special Achoura songs. In southern Morocco, some people do not cook and wear black on the tenth day of Muharram. Some of them light a fire while others wet their clothes with water to commemorate the fact that Al-Hussein died while being thirsty. Achoura marks a painful incident that Moroccans have resumed with different forms of celebration. It's an essential part of the culture SHARE THIS!
