La Maison Bleue is a traditional Moroccan residence built in 1915 by the El Abbadi family, who are originally from Andalusia and still own the house. By staying here you will be the guests of a prominent Fassi family in their own home.
On the upper floors, our deluxe rooms are filled with authentic Moroccan antiquities creating a palatial space for you to relax. Each room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, reverse-cycle air-conditioning or heating, telephone, TV, Internet access, minibar, iPod dock and room safe.
A unique library, which belonged to the late head of the family who was a famous scholar and astrologer, will give you a glimpse into the knowledge of the past. From the rooftop terrace - the highest vantage point of the old city - a panoramic view of the Medina gives you the first taste of the medieval city waiting to be explored.
A central courtyard is surrounded by three majestic salons where the sumptuous fabrics and hand-picked antiquities lend the rooms a royal ambiance unparalleled in the old city. This is the setting for the restaurant where our renowned chefs will prepare you the finest Moroccan cuisine.
Feast on slow-cooked beef or chicken tagines, fluffy couscous with raisins and flaky almond-stuffed pastilla served by waiters in traditional costume and accompanied by Andalucian and Gnaoua musicians.
The architecture of the house is typically Fassi. The walls are covered with intricate Zellij mosaic tiling, the blue symbolizing the ancient city while the green represents the colour of Islam. The grandeur of Andalusia is evident throughout. The detail of the elaborately carved wooden doors, antique stained-glass windows, carved plaster and painted wood ceilings provides a feast for the senses.
Its location near Bab Boujloud is ideal, providing easy walking access to all the monuments of Fez El Jedid and Fez El Bali. A haven of peace in the heart of Fez Medina, La Maison Bleue is a place of serenity and regeneration.
