This villa is a (fairly) well kept secret and it only costs a few dinars to visit. We had a personally guided tour and then were left to our own devices to have a look around the grounds which were extensive. I believe they extended right to the sea but we didn't walk that far. Yes, there's an air of... More

This place has historical connections with Rommel and Churchill but it is not a stately home by any means. The guide was friendly and made us fresh lemonade (from home grown lemons!) A bit pricely for what it is.

We had seen the reviews of this place on Tripadvisor so decided to visit. We weren't disappointed. The gardens, which are full of fruit trees, are a delight. And the house, though in need of some redecoration, is beautiful. There are great views out to sea too. An oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area.

We came here first and foremost for me to indulge my hobby of geocaching as there is a cache in the grounds. Secondly, we wanted somewhere different to look around during our stay. This apparently the botanical garden of Hammamet so I was expecting something quite spectacular and so was rather disappointed. The entry is 5 DT and an additional... More

A good couple of hours spent enjoying the house, orange groves and open air theatre. No cafe when we were there but drinks can be ordered and paid for at the entrance to be served at the house.

Visited the Villa in the afternoon as it was close to our hotel. Didn't expect an awful lot but we were pleasantly surprised. The entrance fee is very reasonable and the guide who gave us a brief tour, was good as well. The rest of the time you can spend exploring on your own. The who place is a bit... More

Great site to visit, beautiful villa and gardens. Is also used as arts/ music venue. Check out their Facebook page for up to date listings. Interesting to history buffs to see where the likes of Churchill have stayed.

We liked everything about this. It was beautiful inside and out and was well worth the 6TD. We wish we had went earlier in the day. We learned about the history of the building and its visi

We got off the bus right outside this villa. The entrance fee is 5 dinars which is about £1.50 so good value . The main villa we were met by a guide who showed us all around the house even the roof space and the bed which Sir Winston Churchill slept in when he visited. The grounds are pleasant to... More
