Taken a few years ago in Hammamet, Tunisia. This house was designed and built by a Romanian millionaire called George Sebastian and this is the central swimming pool. The house was used by Rommel as HQ during the 2nd World War and, after the war, Winston Churchill stayed here to write his memoirs. The house is now the International Cultural Centre and hosted (and presumably still does) theatre, music and other cultural events. It is very beautiful, although rather neglected when we visited. Noone else was present and I don't think it ever attracted many tourists. According to the Lonely Planet guide, Frank Lloyd Wright thought it was one of the most beautiful places he knew.
