Tunis Village in Fayoum

The Story of Tunis Village

The Tunis Village was first created in the 1960’s by two famous Egyptian Poets who encourage the locals to become artists, but it is more famous now for the arrival in the 1980’s of Evelyne Porret, A Swiss woman and Potter who opened her own Pottery studio with her husband, and very quickly turned it into a pottery School to teach all the local children how to make pottery items and encourage them to become budding Potters. It still exists today with all the children in the village still creating pottery and earning money for their families.

What to See

At Tunis Village, the villagers are more than friendly and hospitable with many foreign nationals buying homes here, so foreigners are a daily presence in the Village. It is a great chance to see the young artists making their wares and purchase examples of their craft, explore the village and try your hand at making pottery!. There are different Pottery Shops and point out some of the spectacular and often rare plants, abundance of trees and shrubs including the ‘Bottle Brush tree’,Spikey Silk Cotton tree, rose bushes,pomegranate shrubs, Olive, Orange and Lemon trees and many arbours with various fruit and flowers budding from them.
Staying at a lodge in Tunis Village gives you the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Egyptian breakfast cooked and created in the Fayoum style. Also the quiet nature allows to relax and take a walk around the Village meeting the friendly locals and exploring the lovely designs of the Houses and Villas with a touch of Nubian and Tunisian design.
