We restored a 17th century home into a 7 room guest house where we love to welcome guests. We are at the heart of old Tunis -Medina- walking distance from many historical sites, restaurants, cafes and craft shops.
Our home was built in the 17th century, which we bought and restored. Restoration work took 3 years, and we just terminated in August of 2013. We are passionate about heritage revival, and hence we kept all ancient poles, tiles and ceiling craftsmanship. All furniture is either vintage or handcrafted by Tunisian artisans and artists coming from all over the country.
We are strategically located in the old 'medina' of Tunis surrounded by museums, art galleries, medrassas and souks. As soon as you leave our home, you can wonder around in the little paths where each turn hides a secret from history.
We are social entrepreneurs; as we want to encourage tourism with a socio-economic edge by creating opportunities for micro and small businesses based in the medina; artisans, traders, tour guides, and chefs (mothers) that mastered their 'cuisine' by cooking for their families...
Our home is a great escape for those that want to enjoy the Tunisian lifestyle with a touch of luxury. The house is calm, with a great roof terrace that overlooks the whole city and plenty of reading/writing spaces.
If you want to discover all of Tunisia, we could also arrange tours/cars/recommend sites upon request...
We provide breakfast to our guests and we have wifi access almost all over the home.
Upon request and at an additional fee, we could organise transportation and meals at home.
Interaction with guests
We interact with our guests to ensure they got what they needed for their trip and could share with them a meal or a tour.
Other things to note
Upon request we could organise travel around the country or tour guides.
