  • Description

    Description

    We are a guesting farm in the heart of the Israeli Negev desert. Established in a unique location, right at the entrance of the Har-Hanegev nature reserve, far away from any infrastracture.

    Our hosting is personal and homey. Eight cozy huts are offered for guests from around the world, awaiting for a unique vacation experience.

    Each hut provides electricity by solar energy, clay water jugs comfortable beds and more. There is no running water or toilets inside of the succot. There are shared toilets and showers. Our toilets are based on saw dust. Our showers water the garden.

    We offer the full and pure desert experience. Digital detox. Who ever stays with us gets to live the simple desert live. We rise and fall with the sun. Live with the seasons and adapt to nature, without asking the nature to adapt to us. We offer desert, animals and eco gardens. We have a lot to give and a lot can be given to us. The simple life, the good life.

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

    The Succah is quite remote, 8km from Mizpe. Rides to and from Mizpe can be arranged. Busses go from Beer Sheva to Mizpe Ramon on an hourly basis. We ask to arrive during daylight.
