Fascinating insight into a middle class Tunisian home in the early 20th century. Packed with interesting items with an informative fact sheet supplied. Make sure you climb to the top of the tower ( a bit difficult ) for magnificent views over the Medina and out to sea. Highly recommended.

This is a gem. Its a beautifully preserved house giving real insight into the life of a wealthy family in Sousse over many generations. Its quite small so won't take that long to go around. Our kids (5 and 8) thought it was fascinating. Great views of the medina from the roof. Very inexpensive.

It is a beautiful house that you get to wander around for as little as 4 dinar each. With items dating from 300 years ago, a high tower with a good view and an interesting information sheet in your language. Also finding it is really easy as there are many signs pointing you towards it, just inside the wall of... More

Well worth a visit. An amazing collection of textiles and patterns in this lovingly kept traditional home. Very inspiring for the creatives. Amazing views of the medina and Sousse from the roof too.

Gorgeous tiles and tortoises in the courtyard. While away half an hour in this lovely little traditional house - we went on a drizzly day and had the place to ourselves.

Lady on Ticket desk very helpful and offered an info sheet, on the house in English. Lovely to be able to look at how a family had lived in Sousse. Opportunity to walk up the Tower and look over the medina.
