Where are the better places to go in Tunisia, away from the masses?

What time of year are you going?

Makes a difference as a lot of places dont get busy until mid summer, so anywhere could suit.

The Skanes area is away from the masses but I personally wouldnt go there free.

It depends when you go as to how busy it will be.

I spent Christmas week in Port -el-Kantoui and it was lovely.

Its bit of journey to get there but Tabarka in north of Tunisia is a delightful place. Not been there since the uprising but had two very enjoyable holidays there. Mainly Italian and French tourists and believe that, I was only English person in town. Thinking of revisiting again in May or June.

Will be travelling at peak time in July. I prefer a villa with a private pool but they seem to be mostly in the south.

Hi Alison

I agree with Wandrin_star. The north of Tunisia is still unchartered territory as far the Brits are concerned.

You didn't say which airport you will arriving at. If Tunis Carthage airport, then I would recommend the resort of Sidi Bou Said. It is a very short distance from Tunis. It is a chic, upmarket resort. However, the most villas and apartments there belong to Tunisians living abroad, but spend their holidays at home. No more so than in peak summer time.

Having said that, and with a bit of homework, I am sure you will find more options for accommodation in that lovely resort.

Good luck

Cheers

Agree with Cas about Sidi Bou Said being more up-market [and relatively expensive]. It's a beautiful place and very photogenic.

But the price the place pays for that is that it DOES get invaded by the masses! During the day coach loads of tour groups invade, and when there are cruise ships alongside at La Goulette, then the place can reach saturation point. But when they've left it returns to being a peaceful haven.

If you are looking for an upmarket hotel, away from the masses, then I'd recommend The Residence in Gammarth:
