“This is a Nabeul gem”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

This is a Nabeul gem; It has simple rooms with balconies and is surrounded by olive and citrus groves. It’s near a clean, unbusy strech of beach. You can have breakfast on the lawn. The charming owners (ex high school teachers) speak excellent English and can direct you to worthy places to see and buy ceramics.

After three weeks of independent travel in Tunisia, we were ready for a few days of relaxation. The Pension Les Oliviers delivered exactly what we wanted, in a quiet location on the outskirts of Nabeul on Cap Bon. The owners live in the main house, and the pension rooms are in a separate building about 20 feet away. There are eight double rooms on the second floor, as well as a small apartment (also for rent) and a common area with sofas and a television on the main floor. The rooms are simply furnished, with side by side twin beds, and a third twin bed at their foot. Each room has a private bathroom, with toilet, sink, and shower. Hot water was plentiful. The best part of the room was the private balcony, complete with two chairs and a small table. We had a view over an olive grove,with glimpses of the ocean a couple of blocks away. The four rooms on the other side of the building looked over the parking area and a luxuriant bougainvillea-covered wall, separating the property from the street. The parking was safe and secure, and we never had any worries about leaving our rental car in the off-street parking area.
Breakfast was simple and classic French-style, with choice of hot beverage, wonderful fresh baguette slices and croissants, with jam and butter. Most mornings we took breakfast outdoors, on the lawn beneath the olive trees. If desired, you could take it on a tray back to your room, and have it on the balcony.
The owner is an engaging lady who used to be a high-school English teacher, but is now retired and devotes herself to operating the pension business. Her husband runs a private lycee (high school) in downtown Nabeul. We often talked for an extra half an hour or so, after breakfast. For us, this was a real treat, as we had not encountered very many people in Tunisia who were fluent enough in English to have a substantive conversation.
The beach was an easy walk from the pension, and was practically deserted both days we went. The beach was clean, and the water was crystal clear, although it was a bit cool when you first got in. We thoroughly enjoyed the swimming.
There are two excellent restaurants nearby, one an Italian pizza/pasta place, and the other an upscale Tunisian/fusian place called the Slovenia. Both are operated by the Hotel Les Jasmins, within half a block of the pension. There are numerous local-color restaurants and fast food places in the center of town, as well as a couple of supermarkets that offer prepared dishes, rotisserie chicken, wines, etc. There are also several ceramics shops within an easy walking distance (Nabeul potters are renowned for their craft) -- certainly worth a look, and much easier than coping with the sellers in the market.
We had planned to stay two nights at Les Oliviers, and ended up staying four nights, using the pension as our base for exploring all of Cap Bon. It was a gentle way to replenish our energies for continuing our travels in Tunisia.
