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.

This is a most remarkable place. Located on a noisy, rather scruffy street, once you walk through the gate you are transported to another era. The sound fades, a few cats wander about. The place reeks of post-WW1 decadence, the 'Sebastian' could easily be Flyte, and the artfully placed moveable and immovable objects in the house epitomise "artfulness". That Churchill... More

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
