This villa is worth visiting if you want a rest from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism and need to chill out for an hour or so. The house itself must have been a fabulous place in its day. The art deco style interior is still charming and the black marble bath and staircase against the white walls is... More

Nice house with a great potential but is poorly maintained.. Winston Churchill apparently spent time here.

I went to this place after reading about it on here and I wasn't disappointed. The house and grounds are stunning, loads of photo opportunities. There is fabulous art work inside, really quirky. We loved the four person bath, unfortunately they don't fill it!! The house has wonderful history. Both Winston Churchill and Ghandi have stayed there. A chap showed... More

When first visiting the house it is not clear what there is to see but if you have a chat with the staff then they will let you see some of the surprises. Winston Churchill apparently spent time here. If you close your eyes you can imagine a bygone era. Simple but classic with authenticity maintained.

I found this very interesting. Apart from the history and the architecture the ground were simply beautiful. I was shown around by a charming gentleman who then served freshly squeezed lemon juice to me as I sat by to pool to enjoy. Overall, well worth a visit and very enjoyable.

Definitely worth a visit. Tip the porter on arrival for a guided tour, where you'll find out much more than offered by the internet, unless you can read French! Used as a base by Rommel during WW2, and later visited by Churchill whilst writing his memoirs, the villa is incredibly unique and still retains much of it's original furniture and... More

On entry, there was no signage telling you the entrance fee or opening hours. The only literature available was in German - no English, no French. Bad start. The grounds looks poorly maintained. Similarly the house, staffed by a sinister-looking guide. He gave us a tour, but didn't seem to know much. He spent a lot of time on his... More

I loved the actual building. It is a little bit run down, but given the local economy and the amount they charge for entry (3 dinar - just over £1) including a drink, it is not surprising. Used to display the work of local artists. I have an interest in architecture and interior design so I was fascinated, but there... More

I visit this house whenever I am stressed or just want to relax or meet friends for coffee, I have lived in this area for the past 10/11 years. I am in another world there. I have never visited for the music festival each year as I have been busy but would love to. Art exhibitions are another reason for... More

We spent an hour exploring this place on our day trip into Hammamet centre. The villa is well kept and they have tried to keep the original furnishings in order to give you an idea of what it would have been like in its hay day. There is an interesting display of art in the Mai rooms of the villa... More
