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

Pleasantly surprised !

  • 5 of 5

I travel regularly and I must confess that it is the first time I was pleasantly surprise by a property:

- Everything is brand new (Inside and outside)

- The pictures reflect reality

- The housekeeper, Gamal, was really nice and helpful

I had the impression of being home away from home.

The location is perfect as long as you have a car (close to the beach, the Galleria mall, the supermarkets and the restaurants).

I would definitely recommend it!
