Professional restoration & property management services within the ancient Medina of Fes, Morocco.
We offer a comprehensive service for the buying, the restoring and the management of traditional houses in the medieval Fes Medina, Morocco. Our emphasis is on quality, cost and personal service.
Fes was created in the 8th century which makes it the oldest of the 4 Moroccan imperial cities. It is widely recognised as the cultural and the spiritual capital of Morocco.
The Fes Medina is the best preserved Medieval Medina in the world. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest car-free zones. Today it still gives the impression of living largely in the centuries' old traditions which have shaped it.
Traditional Fes Medina houses are built around an inner courtyard and are decorated with cedar wood, mosaic tiles and engraved plaster work. It is still possible to buy an unrestored traditional house for as little as 40,000 euros.
Fes is the second most visited city in Fes after Marrakesh and tourist numbers are on the rise. So the potential exists to create a business from your property. Maybe a guest house or a restaurant.
It is cheap and easy to get to and from Fes, both nationally and internationally. A new airport opened in 2017. Budget airlines Ryanair and Airarabia regularly fly to 16 and 11 European destinations respectively.
We offer a wide and comprehensive range of services in all areas of property restoration & management.

For each of our restoration projects we have collected a range of before and after photos to show the results of our work. There is also a brief description of the completed work.
Medina houses are very old, so many are in a poor structural condition. Therefore the majority of our projects have involved some careful demolition and rebuilding of walls, floors and stairwells.
Where possible we carefully restore original features. These can include traditional mosaic tiling (zellij), ornate metal work and wood carving, engraved plasterwork and traditional flat plaster and tadleck wall finishes. We also have the craftsmen who can create new traditional features using new and reclaimed materials.
We can provide high quality electrical and plumbing installations for your Medina house.
Steve has an extensive network of workmen ranging from manual labourers to craftsmen of the highest order. Estimates were adhered to and no financial outlay took place without full consultation. He is prepared to assist with anything including building permits, utilities, insurance and local taxation.
As can be seen from the photos: the result was stunning. For anyone considering restoration in Fez I would highly recommend Steve and his team.
The original restoration company that we hired had made little progress and were wasting our money. Then Properties in Fez and their owner Steve Peterson took over the project and brought it to a very satisfactory conclusion.
The particular qualities that Properties in Fez bring are: Communication, Project Management & Supervision, Costing, Workforce, and Trustworthiness.
