Fes is perhaps the most otherworldly destination on earth - welcome to the ninth century, more or less. Aside from electricity and satellite dishes, it hasn't changed much in all that time. Its the world's biggest car-free town by far, and for the most part it is still a workaday city, little concerned with tourists, yet it largely tolerates them. Its astonishing to be in, but tires you out, there are no public parks and places to relax, so having a huge room in a beautifully restored mansion with its perfect grand courtyard is great. There are other such lodgings, but none I believe that also add the fine meals, all fresh local ingredients and cuisine, even wine, and great rooftop setting for eating them, plus the very pleasant staff. Its pricey, especially by local standards, but the fine recollection of the experience will last a lifetime, long after you have forgotten the money.
