Our cabins are built and designed with the theme of the desert and its panorama in mind. Each of our cabins is uniquely designed with simplicity and elegance, and special features such as cobblestone floors, hewn stone bathtubs, and natural wood reflect the simplicity and tranquility of the desert surroundings.A Serene Pastoral AtmosphereThe guest cabins at Carmey Avdat have no television sets or DVD players commonly found in Israeli lodging accommodations. Instead, visitors are encouraged to enjoy the serene desert surroundings, bathe in the natural rock pools adjacent to each cabin, and wander through the orchards to pick and sample the fruits that are in season.Our farm with Ecology in MindCarmey Avdat Farm has a biological water purification system for recycling gray water from the cabins.

We had a perfect stay in Carmey Avdat and I just didnt want to leave! The house we stayed in had all the comfort, the quiet we were looking for, amazing breakfast and it is close to several interesting sites to do/visit (Sde Boker/En Avdat/Mitzpe Ramon). I can't wait to go back!

Unique! An Israeli Pioneer Family living their dream. Breath taking vista. Comfortable mountain dwellings reasonably priced with a morning breakfast served in your own privacy.

The calm in this oasis where everything is well thought out: it does not leave the cottage and veranda and grazes nirvana in the pelvis. We spent three days and it could have lasted three weeks and excellent wine and food oil in abundance. The staff are charming. Of course I will return

Our 'room' was a beautiful free standing wooden hut with pebbled floors, a kitchen and a gorgeous bathroom with its own jacuzzi. Outside we had a huge covered porch with our own barbeque, a small pool we could cool down in, a double hammock and tables... More
