    You can stay in one of the rooms in our lodge. It is a typical arabic architecture with a little dome over your bed. It's on the Center's property and only 2 minutes away from our home. So you are close but have some privacy, when wished for. You are welcome to cook and eat with us, but there is also a shared kitchen and dining room, if you sometimes would like to cook and eat by yourself. The shared bathroom (for 4 rooms) is simple and has a toilet, a sink and a shower.
