  • Description

    Description

    We are a guest farm in the heart of the Israeli Negev desert, in a unique location, right at the entrance of the Har-Hanegev nature reserve, away from the hustle of city life..

    Our accommodation is personal and homey. Eight cozy huts are available to guests from around the world, who seek a unique vacation experience.

    Each hut has solar electric light, water jugs, comfortable beds and absolute privacy. There is no running water or toilets inside of the huts but there are shared toilets and showers close by. The toilets are ecological using saw dust and the showers water the garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer an authentic desert experience. Digital detox. Whoever stays with us gets to live the simple desert life. We rise with the sun and retire at sundown, live with the seasons and adapt to nature, without asking nature to adapt to us. We offer desert, animals and eco gardens. We believe that while we benefit from volunteers,
    we have a lot to offer and volunteers benefit greatly too. We live a simple life, the good life.

    Paid work can only be given to Israeli Residents or holders of a valid working permit.
