Arrived after long day traveling - ferry, train & grands taxi, had a lovely swim and lazy meal.
Friendly people. Clean. Spacious.
Lovely dinner. Breakfast.
Far out of town so ideal of you have your own transport. Taxi expensive and public transport to here atrocious. Bus stop in nearby village Ain Chaggag. Bus late, cramped and had to walk from bus stop.

He asked us which day we were going to visit Fez and that he would organise a guide for our protection! We said that we didn't want a guide which seemed to agitate him and he asked us to come and sit down in his office, whereupon ...
... the group and haggling over prices is an exhausting business. With relief we come to the shop which is located right above the tannery where we take a short break. On entry we are given a bunch of mint, to hold to our noses to dissipate the smells of the tannery, which is made up a series of enormous vats, filled with water and dyes, where men work in appalling conditions, tanning and dyeing ...
I was also able to watch the craftsman who make the large pottery and cement tables and counters. Chipped pottery is fashioned into a design upside down, a mold is place around the design and then covered in cement. Once the cement has hardened, the pottery is turned over and you have inlaid pottery be it a table, countertop or fountain.
We left the pottery workshop and it was now time to tackle the Medina. This was going to be fun!
