Dar El Menia is run and owned by an Englishman, Graham Coules. He has employed an old medina family who reside nearby.  Um Klthum is the maid and is a superb traditional Moroccan cook, Jamal speaks English, French and a little Spanish and enjoys sharing his knowledge of the medina, Mostapha is the custodian of the house, he worked on the restoration project and is always on hand with a smile and a few words of Arabic to teach. One of the unique features of Dar El Menia is the opportunity this local family provides for further in-depth exploration of the people and culture of Fes.
