In the early 20th century, Hammamet became the favourite haunt of artists, aristocrats and politicians including Winston Churchill, who worked on his memoirs here. This is largely due to George Sebastian, a Romanian millionaire who liked it so much that he decided to make it...More

This is a nice place to visit in Hammamet; the garden is very nice, the villa was built to reflect the Tunisian life style.

This villa is a (fairly) well kept secret and it only costs a few dinars to visit. We had a personally guided tour and then were left to our own devices to have a look around the grounds which were extensive. I believe they extended...More

This place has historical connections with Rommel and Churchill but it is not a stately home by any means. The guide was friendly and made us fresh lemonade (from home grown lemons!) A bit pricely for what it is.

We had seen the reviews of this place on Tripadvisor so decided to visit. We weren't disappointed. The gardens, which are full of fruit trees, are a delight. And the house, though in need of some redecoration, is beautiful. There are great views out to...More

hi, I visited George Sebastian Villa a long time ago. I would like to know if a pale image of his face carved on marble was placed in the corner of the pool/pond and no matter where one stood he seemed to be looking at one. I seem to remember this image every time I think of this Villa. Can someone enlighten me on this.

This is not a hotel, it is a tired tourist attraction, a once beautiful house where Winston Churchill once stayed. With a bit of TLC and a rich investor it could be amazing.
