Tunisia: Self Catering Accommodation

Other than the wider options available by renting self-contained holiday apartments and villas in Tunisia, extensive self-catering complexes of small units and basic bungalows as typically found in Spain, Turkey and Greece are not common in Tunisia. The holiday market in Tunisia is much more angled towards hotel-style accommodation on B&B, half-board or all-inclusive deals.

Where self-catering complexes in Tunisia exist they will be found only in the major coastal resorts such as Hammamet, Monastir, Sousse, Port el Kantaoui. Other than renting a full self-contained apartment, self-catering choices will usually be studio-type accommodation in purpose-built blocks with shared facilities such as pools. Some go further offering dining and other entertainments onsite and the general ambience will be not unlike a typical Tunisian tourist hotel. Quality can range from basic up to reasonable 4-star and the best deals will be available via tour operators, usually including charter flights.
