Tunisia, House of Georg Sebastiana
In 1920, a rich Romanian architect, Georg Sebastian, arrived in Hammamet.
He built an unusual villa here.
It is decorated with cypress trees, the pool is surrounded by columns, and in the bedrooms – antique mirrors and Roman baths.
There were many celebrities here: Andre Gide and Maupassant, Flaubert and Georges Bernanos, Churchill and the English king George VI.
In the garden there is an amphitheater where the International Art Festival is held annually.
