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

Only 5 dinar entrance fee certainly is great value to view and explore the gorgeous and historical villa and its grounds. We both loved the "natural" feel and execution of the garden & orchards that wrap around surrounding the villa which truly is shabby and opulent at the same time, it certainly still exudes yesterdays glamour with bold design and...

If you love architecture, style, design and art you will love this place. The villa itself is an amazing piece of architecture and when you walk through the rooms and the pool court yard, you can really imagine yourself back in the bohemian 60's. The history of the place is fascinating. The gardens are mostly well kept and make a... More

In this marvelous site, the garden and the house could have a better treatment. It seems that Si'Bastien requested that the house remains as it was when he died. OK.

Well worth a visit. The history from Rommell to Churchill is amazing, but don't expect English heritage, it's a little rough around the edges! The gardens are lovely and shady, with a fruit orchard and wild tortoises! Worth a stroll on a hot afternoon.

We went here by taxi from our hotel in Hammamet after seeing it on trip advisor. My mum said it made her trip. It was good to get out and about and see Tunisia and it was only 15 dinar for the 3 adults, my 3 year old was free. Lovely place but you can see what a difference it... More

If you like history, piece and quiet and design then this will tick all the boxes. One of the best places in Hammamet to unwind and appreciate this place. Relax with a drink overlooking the ocean.

I was a little disappointed with the tour of the villa - when i eventually located it. The Eco-Orchard was well maintained but i felt the rest of the grounds needed some TLC here and there. Our Guide within the house was nice but we just happened to catch his attention by accident as were were wandering around. I wondered... More

George Sebastian Villa is a place of a timeless beauty with a lovely garden and sweet scents of Mediterranean. Once you're in Hammamet it is a must see monument of early 20th century architecture, arts and history.
