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 2018 which runs from 22 - 30 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.

The View From Fez would like to hear from our readers on the subject of festival scheduling in Morocco Why is it that the Essaouira Gnaoua Festival is on at the same time as the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music? Many of our readers say they are torn between the two. And then there is Mawazine from 22-30 June Many at the Gnaoua Festival would like to go on to Fez Would it not be sensible to have one Festival follow the other, with maybe a one or two day break in between? This would enable patrons to travel between Fez and Essaouira - and spend more time in Morocco. Many at the Fes Festival would like to go on to Essaouira The Gnaoua Festival starts on June 21st, the Fes Festival on June 22nd, making it impossible to attend both. Better scheduling would make good economic sense and would also allow for some artists to perform at both. It is worth thinking about SHARE THIS!

The Fes Festival of World Sacred Music looks set to have perfect weather for the entire time. The forecast is for daytime temperatures to be between 33 and 36 degrees Celsius and evenings a pleasant 17 0r 18 degrees The opening night at Bab Makina (Friday June 22nd) promises to be another interesting creation under the direction of Alain Weber – Stage production and conception. Ramzi Aburedwan – Music direction. Christophe Olivier – Lighting designer. Franck Marty and Spectaculaires – Spectacle managers and image light operators. Scenographic creation (mapping). On the theme of the present edition "Ancestral knowledge" the creation will highlight artisan motifs. In the Arabo-Islamic tradition, aspects of handicraft know-how are originally linked to a divine or prophetic revelation, as evidence of the desire to integrate a craft to a wisdom and to a practical and daily spirituality. The craftsman models and works on the material in the same way as the divine intellect configures the Soul in order to produce the cosmos, using shapes and colours. Therefore, the craftsman’s gesture is like a fragment of the universal action of the soul, creator of the universe. Such creation will, thus, be a great poetic and musical evocation of the privileged relationship prevailing in the City between architecture, handicraft, brotherhoods and crafts. Such reflections will be nurtured by the thoughts of the great Arab philosophers, both ancient and modern, inspired by Greek philosophy, particularly that of Aristotle. Mapping will be sober and start from a black and white, very stylised graphic drawing which will successively give birth to a colourful historical architecture. Work on geometric motifs, emanating from weaving mosaics and moucharaby, or from weaving motifs. It will integrate with kalam by Julien Breton, a live calligrapher (light-graph). Prestigious artists from Morocco and the Arab world will highlight the traditional and modern aspect of these artisan crafts. See the Festival programme here - Programme SHARE THIS!
