Perched on a hill on the edge of the Medina, this is an area combining narrow lanes and traditional neighbourhoods with majestic old villas. The apartment dates from the 1920s; staying here feels like inhabiting an earlier era. Quaint and beautifully decorated
This spacious and high-ceilinged apartment is part of a network of centrally-located properties in Athens, Beirut, Istanbul and Tunis, dedicated to reminding us of an earlier, kinder period of cosmopolitan coexistence in the Mediterranean.
Built in the 1920s, it is 120m2 and composed of a bedroom, a study, a large living room, a storage room, a kitchen, a bathroom and three balconies. It is on the second floor of a hill rising over the Medina of Tunis and facing a hill atop which a Sufi shrine is perched. It's easily accessible from the center on foot and exquisitely quiet. It possesses gas-powered heating and plug-in electrical bodies for the winter, and two a/c units in the living room and bedroom for the summer.

I am always available over email and so is my friend Aymen who is physically in Tunis in the event that something might come up.
Respectful of the house and the neighbours.
I've been travelling since my mother bundled me onto a bumpy transatlantic Olympic Airways flight in 1979, a few months after I was born. Since then, I've learned to share less of my tears, screams, and dinner portions with fellow travellers.
Now, I work as a Mediterraneanist, meaning that I write and make films seeking to raise awareness about the heritage-at-risk of the body of water connecting the three cities I live in: Athens, Istanbul and Tunis.
