Colorful papyrus paintings add excitement to the walls as do reproductions of 1853 David Roberts prints of various Egyptian monuments.

About Ernest A. Slingsby

We live close to Villa Tunis so we are always ready to help guests. Previously, I lived in Egypt for nearly 20 years. In fact, the idea of Villa Tunis comes from the rural village south of Cairo where I have a villa. Pottery and other Egyptian handicrafts come from village artisans close to our villa.

These experiences bring an international flavor to Villa Tunis as well as an understanding of the excitement of traveling to a new location and exploring all that the setting has to offer.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

We stayed 5 nights in the 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apt. Everything was very clean upon arrival.

  • 5 of 5

The cupboards were filled with dishes, pots & pans, cooking utensils & both shower towels & pool towels. We shopped at the local Fresh Market & stocked our refrigerator. We used the gas grill to cook meals. The pool was beautiful & warm for swimming! Very nice place! Would definitely recommend this place!
