Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Djerba Island, Tunisia, Your Home Away From Home

Lying just off Tunisia’s eastern coast, in the Gulf of Gabes, Djerba Island is a popular tourist destination. The island is renowned for its wonderful beaches and dramatic sunsets, drawing thousands of visitors from throughout Europe every year. Visitors spending their holidays on Djerba Island will also discover that the island’s mainly flat, semi-arid landscape was used for the exterior scenes for the first Star Wars film in 1977. There are two main towns on the island – Houmt-Souk and Ajim, where the majority of the self catering holiday rental apartments and villas can be found.

Things to Do on Holiday in Djerba Island, Tunisia

Although Djerba Island covers an area of just under 200 square miles, making it North Africa’s largest, it can still be easily explored in a hired car, moped or on a bicycle. Walkers and hikers can also take advantage of a guided tour into the island’s arid interior, where they may enjoy a camel ride and really feel like a local! It will come as no surprise to visitors spending their holidays on Djerba Island to discover that water sports activities are very popular here. Kayaking, windsailing, jet-skiing, scuba diving or a ride on a ‘banana boat’ can all be enjoyed. The less energetic tourists, however, can simply relax on the warm sands and top-up the tan, before cooling off in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Gabes.

The town also boasts a number of interesting historical buildings and landmarks. Perhaps the biggest tourists draws are Aghlabid fortress, the 15th century Borj El K’Bir castle and the many traditional ancient Tunisian ‘fondouks’ and ‘menzel’ to be found throughout the island.

My First impressions were....... it was far from Tunis...... I would have to catch another flight........ I would have to spend extra money...... and I was also very apprehensive and wary about paying through western union before even getting there! But all I All I can say is the owner Patricia & Mustapha are a 110% legit and trustworthy people!!! I am soooooooooooooooooooooooo glad I booked this beautiful villa!!! It was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY AND MORE!!!!!They are such lovely people and always going the extra mile!!! I honestly felt I was at home, anything I needed I was given!! I felt like a queen on my holiday!!! We arrived very late in early hours of the morning, poor Patricia waited for us....... Who does that!!! That was soooooo sweet of her!!!! I honestly felt like she was my family waiting up for me..... Sorry Patricia for the very very late arrival! When we came she had freshly baked breads, baguettes and breakfast for us. Honestly only family do these things and that is what Patricia did for us! And then she also made home made jam just for us, which was made by herself!!! Thanks Patricia! And the Villa itself was Just pure tranquillity!!!! Just beautiful, everything you need is there! And Secondly Mustapha!!!! Well what can I say...... You really are an amazing man with a wonderful heart!!! Thank you for driving us for such a loooooooooooooooooooooooong journey from Tunis to Djerba!!! You worked soooooo hard for us!!! Your driving is simply amazing, you are very careful and safe!!! You were also very kind to my children and my whole family absolutely LOOOOOVED YOU!!!

"The villa is in a deligh...

5 of 5
"The villa is in a delightfully quiet location on the outskirts of a tiny village. It’s spacious, with balconies and terraces on every side, allowing us to choose to sit in the sun or the shade as required. My partner was delighted with what she called “a proper kitchen with proper cooking utensils” and we breakfasted on the terrace and dined in the large, adjacent dining room. We couldn’t help but feel superior to our fellow tourists packed away in their crowded hotels."
