Sleeping in a dar in Tunis, our choice: El Patio Courtyard House
I had a dream, to wake up on my birthday on the road: open my eyes, have a hearty breakfast and dive into the streets of who knows which city. I fulfilled this dream in Tunisia. To tell the truth, I have fulfilled two dreams, because it was from the time of the trip to Morocco that I had fantasized a stay at Mille and one night in a riad or dar. And so we stayed for three days in a dar in Tunis, because sleeping in a dar is an experience to try, a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in local culture and fully experience the magic of the medina.
Sleeping in a dar in Tunis The dar are ancient terraced houses that populate the medines (historic centers). Renovated in the last twenty years and converted into accommodation, they offer travelers the opportunity to stay in traditional homes that reflect the aesthetics of the Tunisian artistic and cultural heritage, without sacrificing the comforts of our day.
Staying in a dar is a bit like entering a magical treasure chest. Once you cross the threshold, you find yourself catapulted into a small world made of internal courtyards, corners embellished with traditional objects and wonderful decorations on doors and furniture created by local artisans. You cannot remain indifferent to so much grace and beauty, nothing is left to chance, everything is simple but elaborate at the same time...
