Escape to the traditional Tunisian guest house Dar Zargouni, a sanctuary of opulence and authentic charm.

Situated in the south-west of Tunisia, the Dar Zargouni villa is perched on a sand dune overlooking the magnificent “Corbeille de Nefta” palm oasis. The guest house incorporates four majestic suites arranged around two tranquil patios, several living spaces, a dining area and kitchen. On the terrace, a sparkling infinity pool offers a sweeping view over the oasis.

A feeling of authenticity reigns at the Dar Zargouni ; where the decor is laced with warm hints of palm wood, colours reflecting the Tunisian landscape and traditional brickwork. The atmosphere invites guests who come from all over the world to get to know each other, share stories and dream. Over one hundred date palms span the grounds in the garden. The outside air shimmers with the magic of the surrounding landscape. The celestial beauty glimmers among the lush vegetation and sparkling central fountain. Throughout the space, you’ll find characterful touches lovingly chosen by your host; from the stone kitchen sink crafted by local artisans to the antique radio that reminds him of his childhood.

Guests come to the Dar Zargouni to indulge in a unique, luxurious experience, soothed by the tranquil expanse of the Nefta oasis.
