Dar Said is a charming property located in the heart of the picturesque village of Sidi Bou Said, overlooking the Gulf of Tunis and Carthage from its hilltop setting. It is 15 minutes by car from the airport and approximately 30 minutes from downtown Tunis.Originally built in the 19th century as a middle-class residential home, the property has been lovingly restored to offer a relaxed atmosphere and private tucked away feeling.
There are 24 individually decorated rooms on two storeys, set around four internal courtyards. The 18 Charme rooms open on to courtyards so they don't have sea views, but are traditional in style with elegant textiles, fine furniture and cool marble floors. The two Panorama rooms overlook the Gulf of Tunis and one of the three larger de luxe rooms has a sea view. The Prestige room is a suite overlooking the pool and bay, with a stuccoed ceiling and four-poster bed. All rooms have modern amenities such as air conditioning, heating, a television, telephone and internet access.
Set within the property's garden is a small swimming pool, surrounded by wooden sun beds, a bar and sun-shaded tables where you can enjoy breakfast, drinks and light snacks while admiring the ocean views. If you want something more than a light snack, then cross the cobbled lane to Dar Zarrouk, a restaurant also owned by the hotel. This has a large terrace overlooking the bay and serves Tunisian and Mediterranean cuisine.
