The SpaceMoncef, the host (my father), is passionate of history, culture and great food. In "Villa Hortensia", you'll feel just like at home. You'll explore the exciting sites the wider tunis has to offer, and come home to a cozy villa where - if you're lucky - my grandfather will meet you with a freshly made jasmine "machmoom".
The beach is literally 5 minutes walk from the property, Carthage Ruins - a world heritage UNESCO-listed site, is about 10 minutes walk. A supermarket (Monoprix) is 3 minutes walk, and the airport 15 minutes away. You can hop on the train and go explore Downtown Tunis, with its little cobbled streets and narrow walkways, or you can go explore the countless UNESCO and historical sites in and around Carthage.
The delightful little village of Sidi Bou Said is 10 minutes away by taxi/train.
Beach, archaeological sites, supermarket, shopping center, old Tunis, nightclubs, bars, world-renowned restaurants, and much more
