“Villa Sebastian”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

not what we have expected - a bit boring without any kind of furniture and only a few rooms opened to the public. The garden however was lovely with a great view over the bay.

“Wonderfully peaceful”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

As with many of Tunisia's places of interest, so much more could be made of this site. A beautiful very original house with wonderful grounds. Part of the attraction is that it is practically deserted, in fact I believe we were the only visitors at the time. Well worth a visit.

“Faded Glories”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

This villa, which was described by Frank Lloyd Wright as "the most beautiful house he had ever seen" apparently and was Rommel's headquarters for a time, has extensive grounds, an amphitheatre and a desperate need for some TLC. it is interesting but really needs some investment to bring it up to scratch. Worth doing if you have time to spare but it is not a must see.

“Highly over rated property”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

I did not find this so called villa interesting or lovely as per the reviews. The only thing I liked was the small open air theatre, which holds functions and concerts in the summer. Nothing else was open there. The gardens were over grown and very wild and the swimming pool ( empty ) quite dirty. Orange and lemon gadens were very well kept. There were couple of bedrooms with some old furniture. A total waste of time and money ( 5 Dinar per person to enter )
