Mille et une nuits : un conte à portée de tous

  • 5 of 5
En sélectionnant ce bien nous étions quasi certains de trouver la quiétude recherchée pour nos vacances familiales (parents et 3 enfants). Belinda nous a assuré de la qualité de ses services dès les premiers échanges par mail.
La maison, un peu plus petite qu'elle ne paraît sur photo, offre tout le confort annoncé (propreté irréprochable, literie confortable). Et s'il manque quelque chose, Belinda s'éfforce de palier les manques éventuels dans le plus bref délai : nous souhaitions un parasol pour protéger nos jumeaux de 10 mois ou un ventilateur dans la cuisine...
Le personnel qui passe chaque jour pour l'entretien de la maison est discret et efficace pour le standard Nord-Africain. La petite piscine ( 3 x 3 m) mais profonde a ravi tant les grands que les petits pour son apport de fraîcheur tout au long de la journée.
La localité d'Erriadh n'a malheureusement pas beaucoup d'infrastructure d'accueil pour les touristes : restaurants dignes de ce nom, magasins ou cafés, certainement en période de Ramadan.
Nous avons suivi le conseil de Belinda et avons profité des installations d'un hôtel de la zone touristique (brise de mer, service, restaurant, paillote sur la plage).
Les trois semaines de notre séjour se sont déroulées trop vite. Merci à Belinda et son équipe attentive pour cette échappée de la grisaille de l'Europe !

Owner's Response: Dear Damien and Isabelle,

Thank you very much for submitting a review. We strive to offer our clients a personalized service that provides them with all the necessaries to fully enjoy their holiday. We like to cater to young families like yours and concentrate on all family members to have a relaxing, fun and unforgettable time in Djerba.

The historic village of Erriadh is in the process of change; a number of old menzels have been lovingly restored with others undergoing or awaiting reconstruction. Part of its charm is, that its original village character is still 'in tact'. However, plans for further development, specialty shops and amenities are in the works, hopefully maintaining and preserving its original cultural essence.

It is my personal opinion that once Tunisia has found its new 'democratic balance', Erriadh will be a sought-after travel destination in the Arab world.

Kind regards,

Belinda

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Excellent stay,the property was ideal for the 4 of us[two teenage sons aged 21 and 19and my wife and me].Belinda was the perfect host and provided us with a welcoming pack of food, advice and help of where to go ,eat, explore and even took us to the souk and advised us where to buy etc.The property was beautifully restored and maintained and a great relaxing base.we had a wonderful stay and travelled by taxi everywhere[Relatively cheap].The only drawback was the location for us because we had to fly in and out of monastir airport which was a days travel.However it was well worth the effort!

vacances gâchées

  • 1 of 5
Incapacité d'assurer un transfert:Attente par 40 degrés avec un bébé d'1 an. Piscine hors d'usage. problème non anticipé ni reconnu. Nous avons insisté sur le fait que, si la piscine était inutilisable, il était inenvisageable de passer dans ce petit village très chaud et retiré, des vacances avec enfants. Mais le pire restait à venir: Pression pour que nous restions puis refus de rembourser lors de notre départ. Pour finir, plainte à la police et remboursement avec facturation abusive à un tarif plus élevé que celui publié sur le site. Le tout avec mépris, mauvaise foi et, plus grave, totale irresponsabilité: nous avons été livrés à nous mêmes dans la chaleur avec un bébé et un enfant sans transport ni téléphone jour de l'Aïd où tout est fermé. Nous déconseillons fortement cette pseudo maison d'hôte où nous avons gaspillé beaucoup de temps et d'énergie et dont les hôtes nous ont fait passer les pires vacances de notre vie.

Owner's Response: After 3 years of having opened my business, I unfortunately took a reservation of a couple, mother-in-law and 2 children. After frequent email correspondance during which one bargained for discounts and all sorts of extra's, they secured a booking of 9 days for which I took the standard 30 % deposit. We strive to offer a superior service and have had many happy and very satisfied clients; esp. families with young children. For min stays of 1 week we meet and pickup our guests from the airport however this couple requested to be picked up 5 days prior to their reservation at SAFRAN to be taken to another hotel which is simply 'not done'. We did offer to reimburse their taxi from the hotel to Erriadh. As Aug is our prime season , we have clients back to back and we need a few hours at midday to prepare the house for the next guests. These people insisted to arrive at 12 so I prepared another home for them to stay in an AC room to await their transfer to Dar Gafsa. A babybed and cold drinks were provided. It was the last day of Ramadan and the Aid the following day, a very special time for the locals; my staff was present and willing to work hard to accomodate our new guests. Upon arrival it was obvious that the setting of the accomodation, a rural village and being 7KM from the beach was not according to their requirements, something they failed to research themselves; my site offers all information and photograhs so no person can claim to be misled. This group was not happy by their own doing and no matter what we could have offered; it would not have been good enough nor would they have been satisfied. Their excuses and complaints are invalid and false : although we normally do not offer a refund of the deposit up to a month prior, we refunded their money minus one day accomodation, which price during high-season is clearly indicated on my site. They left the menzel in total chaos, a broken window in an upper bedroom and took all the complimentary food. One often reads of holiday establishments mistreating and financially duping their clients however in this case it was I , the owner and manager of SAFRAN.This incident caused my staff and I many stressful hours and loss of business. Some people will go to any extend to abuse the etiquette and natural goodwill of others to get their holiday expenses paid for; very unfortunate experience.

Djerba: An island of ten thousand palm trees rising from the sea like a mirage. This Polynesia of the Mediterranean is ringed by miles of fine sandy beaches and luxury hotels, ultra modern or built in the fashion of the traditional Djerbian 'menzel', stand ready to welcome the traveler.

Djerba is the largest island in the Gulf of Gabes, off the coast of Tunisia. It is home to an estimated 60 000 people.

It usually has mild and temperate winters and long hot summers

The island is known as the legendary home of the 'lotus eaters' and Ulysses himself. Today it is a very popular tourist destination.

Djerba is the center of the Al-Ibadhiyah sect of Islam and also has a noted Jewish minority. La Griba Synagogue is one of the holiest Jewish sites in North Africa. It draws pilgrims every May from across the country.
