Entering Villa Edo is the first step of a journey of a luxurious retreat
Located on the hills of Gammarath, the modern villa portrays original elements of neo-Moresque character from arched doors to the central patio with Tunisian mosaics.
Anne and Mario, the owners, have an amazing sense of hospitality and make sure every detail at Villa Edo adds up to the sense of serenity. You can sit in the tastefully decorated lounge area, have a drink and chat with them– you would be surprised with the languages they speak fluently. You may spot their white rabbit hiding in a corner of the lounge. Let them offer you a white kaak warka or other Tunisian delicateness and you can ask to arrange for a massage or private cooking lesson.
Retreat to your classy white and grey themed room and enjoy the sea view or your private garden. You may prefer to relax on the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean or sunbathing by the pool surrounded the tangerine trees and purple bougainvillaea.
