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

We enjoyed our visit to George Sebastian Villa. It is like an oasis in the middle of Hammamet. The house was very interesting but the walk around the extensive garden was the highlight.

Not to be missed. What a wonderful house to have lived in and such a fascinating story. It was well worth the 5 dinar (1 dinar = approx 40 p) entry. Don't miss the large kitchen and the upstairs rooms as shown by the guide. The grounds could do with a bit of TLC but the orangery and it's Museum... More

A wonderful place to visit - the house is interesting but we particularly enjoyed the local art and the wonderful fruit trees - spent a couple of hours wandering about here. Watch out for the chap who pretends to find a Euro and then tries to get local currency out of you - needs must I guess but we would... More

I expected this to be more like a museum on the house side with lovely gardens . Well the house was ok! and could do with a lift in certain areas it was more like time stood still rather than an informative cultural building of someone famous. We had a tour guide so made sense of some of the random... More

Visit the website and the pictures tell it all! A beautifully designed house that we wish we could move into! Classic lines....White walls....Art deco styling....What is there not to like about this place. On top of that there are the grounds featuring a wide variety of citrus fruits all expertly cultivated. There is the theatre as well.....Open air for the... More

I can see why the villa was considered as one of many great architectural structures in 1920s-1930s. The villa itself is interesting with so many nooks and curved ceilings, even the wardrobe doors are very Tunisian. It is sitting on a very huge ground surrounded by different kinds of citrus trees. From the amphitheatre, you can see the Hammamet Gulf.... More
