Former bourgeois house, built in the middle of the XIXth century on the heights of the quaint little village of Sidi Bou Said, Dar Said hotel combines, with undeniable elegance, the comfort of a luxury hotel and the character of a traditional dwelling.

Its Arab-Andalusian architecture, jealously guarded, exhibits fountains, patios, wrought iron and zellige tiles, on a white and marbled blue background, in an atmosphere of timeless charm. Overlooking the Mediterranean and nestled in a haven of greenery, planted with bougainvillea, jasmine and various other sun-kissed trees, Dar Said, thus, cultivates its way of life in an amazing serenity, sharing with its guests one of the most stunning view of the Gulf of Tunis.

On one of its numerous terraces, the swimming pool and its surrounding garden adds a touch of majesty to the vista below, presenting a refreshing place to relax in the hot summer days.


The house was built in the XIXth century by a wealthy bourgeois who chose the closest place to the mausoleum of Sidi Bou Said in order to relax with his family as he considered the place blessed by God. His grandson, sole heir to the house towards the middle of the XXth century, sold the property to his maternal uncle who gave it his name: “Dar Ettoumi”.

The place served as an exhibition gallery and a place where Tunisian works of art were sold before a French family bought it in 1948 and gave it its present name: Dar Said. In 1976, ownership of the place changed hands for the last time and became the property of Majestic Hotels Company which undertook to refurbish it.

Restoring and upgrading the place were supervised by the National Heritage Institute, in keeping with the spirit of and in concert with the building regulations of the time. In spite of all the novel features of comfort that are essential these days, nary everything has been, thus, restored with the materials of yesteryear: marble, earthenware, sculpted plaster…

  Located in the very heart of the historic village of Sidi Bou Said, the hotel is at approximately:

- A 15 minute’s drive from Carthage airport
- A 20 minutes’ drive from Tunis city centre
- A mere five minutes’ drive from the towns of Carthage and La Marsa.
The hotel residents will, thus, be able to profit from such proximity to visit the vestiges of the Punic port, the Antoninus thermae, the Roman villas, Carthage amphitheatre and the archaeological museum. In addition and at a mere stone’s throw from the hotel, Carthage park which stretches from the hill all the way to the shore offers its visitors a lush route where the soul becomes intoxicated with the various sun-drenched scents.
