Hi Melanie, thanks for adding me to the website, I am finding the tips and advice helpful. I am looking to rent an apartment in Tunis in June and July 2014 (possibly longer) as I am studying at the British Council and hoping to end up with a job afterwards. Do you know of anything available? Quite basic will do as long as it has furniture, etc... Look forward to hearing from you - best wishes Kirsty

Hi melanie, we have spoken before when I was going to come but didnt. I made a decision that the time is right for me now, and enquired about the same apartment in beni khiar, I think u know the people who have it to rent. I dont remember now but am trying to get in touch with them about it. its a ground floor one with a small front garden and I believe the owners live above it, does it ring any bells with you. regards carolle

Hi Melanie well you seem to be quite updated re tunisia my question to you how much do you know about legal affairs ie business.its a long story.main concern it was signed over october 2010 and as to date the new owners have not paid it appears that after 3months they changed their mind and basically did a runner therefor the proprietor reclaimed..yes details are with an advocat and it is soon 2years since one german woman and her tunisian sister in law signed the contract as you may guess I was the silent partner .but I want my money even though it was sold for half what was paid .do you have any comments or good solicitors.

One question I have, is how do I add photos to my profile? I have added my profile picture, but would like to add a few more.

But as you will see I'm getting abuse from some weirdo who started talkig to me then flipped out when i told him to leave me alone! Have flagged him as inappropriate because he is!!!

Hi Melanie, hope you are well, just wanted to say hi as I only just got around to joining your website, very remiss of me since I've been living here for over 4 months now!
Hope you haven't been affected by the troubles too much.
I'm in Dar Chaabane, Nabeul, staying here with my husband while we wait to sort out visa issues. Got to say I've found myself pretty bored especially when my husband is busy, I don't know anyone else here now that the only other English person I knew has gone. So I would love to know if there are other English speaking people around who would like to meet up/correspond while I'm here. my email address is
regards, Apna

Melanie, I just read you live in beni khiar, Im moving there in may hopefully, just got to finalise things with the lady and the apartment. i wonder melanie could you tell me about beni khiar, my ex is trying to put me off big time from coming there, telling me that its not safe and no one there in winter , I told him that im happy about going there, please could you put my mind at rest. To me living 5 mins from the beach and in a quiet place sounds like heaven but he says you no live in village not safe blah blah blah
