In the region of Dahar, southern Tunisia, you will be amazed by these ancient villages where houses, built on the slopes of mountains, are fully integrated into the landscape, to the point of being invisible from afar. The Village of Chenini is one of these and the Kenza Residence, formed by a set of troglodyte caves converted into suites and restaurant, represents well these typical houses of the region, characterized by a magnificent architecture. This village, dating back from the Tenth Century, is one of the most important Berber villages still inhabited. This will allow you to discover this very rich culture in which hospitality and sharing are both extremely important.
From the residence’s terrace, you can admire sumptuous sunsets that will give magic colors to the village. You can also visit the latter on foot and visit the Mosque des Septs Dormants. If you want to push your visit further, go to El Ogla mountain oasis or go hiking, with the help of local guides, to the villages of Douiret or Guermassa. You will also be able to participate in the activities of the inhabitants of Chenini (pastoralism, olives and figs gathering, etc.).
This accommodation was set up in 2007 at the initiative of Nedra Boulila, entrepreneur of the region who wanted to develop an integrated project in this region, holding a rich archaeological, historical and architectural heritage. The aim of this project is to provide a stable source of income not only for young people in the village but also for women, through tourism-related activities.
The accommodation package includes breakfast for 2 guests.
