Meet Tchia and David. Originally a lawyer and Businessman of a family business, parents of five successful sons. Tchia and David had a dream for years, you could say it was the number one item on their bucket list - go and live in a ranch. They waited for the children to grow and in 2004, they first heard about the possibility of establishing a ranch in the Negev. They decided to go for it. They left the city life and started from scratch. David single-handedly built a small wooden cabin and they lived there for a whole year without electricity or running water. Tchia and David, the dreamer and the Realiser, Built a small beautiful Cottage, horse ranch with four horses and a donkey. From dawn till dusk Tchia takes care of them and they return her love. Planted fruit trees to eat - figs, carob and pomegranate, olive trees which produce award-winning olive oil. Chicken coop for eggs, cats who handle snakes and scorpions, guarding dogs and peacocks for the soul. One big family (very big). When their youngest son, Guy, celebrated his Bar Mitzvah, they carved a synagogue in rock (!). If that's not enough, they decided there should be a lake. Lake!!! They brought tractors to dig in the ground and filled the hole with water for two weeks! Now there's a beautiful lake, a source of life for animals and Vegetation. Now they live there. A true paradise. Grow olive trees and hosts tourists, intellectuals, people from all around the world, the security forces - everyone arrives to get to know the real pioneers, salt of the earth, who work the land, but also the mind and soul. True Zionism.

Amazing place in the middle of the desert with the amazing hosts that gave us such special feelings from our arrival day until the day we left the farm. We got to experience the quiet and the freedom of the desert on the farm, we stayed on the lake cabin which had an amazing view of the lake. The cabin had everything that is needed for a special go away weekend with my other half. The food was delicious and prepared especially to our personal taste. We've celebrated a birthday this weekend and the cabin was fully decorated with balloons, cake and everything that is needed for a birthday.

We really recommend this place! we'll definitely come back here :)

Beautiful surroundings, total privacy and incredible attention to details by the hosts, make this a perfect getaway. Vegan options, generous food and drink included. The ranch also has horses, dogs, olive groves, a lake, a unique synagogue and a library! What more can you possibly ask for?!

We were looking for a unique experience in Israel- in the Negev to be exact- Puzzle Israel did a great job arranging exactly what we were looking for.

We probably would not have found the Fountain of Youth in the Negev on our own and we loved staying there! The owners have done an amazing job to create an oasis in the middle of the desert. We found the owners,Tchia and David, to be such warm inviting and fascinating hosts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!

It is a must see and a must stay! They think of everything! We were there in the middle of November so it was too cold to swim in their man-made lake but not too cold to enjoy the beauty of their amazing property-I even went in their rowboat on the lake. We were able to use the private outdoor hot tub on the deck of our cabin, under the stars. We had a choice of dining by ourselves or with our hosts- and we chose to dine with our hosts several times as they are just fascinating people to spend time with, not to mention the food and wine that they prepared/served was wonderful!

The cabin is fully equipped it even has great wifi and big screen TV!

We had wanted to stay at Beresheet but they were sold out. We ended up enjoying this experience even more than I think we would have if we had stayed at the Beresheet.

There is much to do in the area if you are outdoor people like we are! We repelled, hiked biked and actually relaxed too! Don't miss this unique opportunity to stay at this one-of-a-kind oasis!

A wondrous place in the desert, beautifully exemplifies the north Negev terroir and at the same time gives the guests a relaxed, peaceful retreat with a perfect balance between solitude and top level hospitality. The lake is magic

Its absolutely was one of the best experience i had.
The place is amazing! the view is stunning and the cabin is well designed and have just all you need.

we took the "nof" cabin with the private hot tub outside. we enjoyed it very much.
Also important to say that the hosting family that built all of this awesome place were super generous and nice and also let us stay more than our checkout hour.

We went down south for the weekend of the Perseid meteor shower and got way more than we ever bargained for. True pioneers built and run this special place with loving hands. The tranquility and reacquaintance with nature we've experienced there charged us with new powers for the rest of the year. Our little baby got to enjoy horses, water and such peace that really affected her and calmed her spirit. We can't wait to go back and find the place and people just as we left them. Impeccable service with great care and generosity that is rare to find.

We stayed one night in their oasis desert and this was a unique experience.
First we met Tchia at the gate and she welcomed us to the lake cabin.
The cabin is magical and fully equipped for a full stay without leaving.
The place is magical and the cabin is fully equipped and super clean.

Our stay was perfect not only because of this place but also due to this special family.
We will back again!!!

As a young parents couple, we needed a short break, and it was the best place for it. The quietness of the desert, the warm hospitality.... the good food, desert breeze, nature 360 around..
A huge bed, great view, hot tub in the porch for a perfect night bath.

This is our second time here, and we will definitely come back again to one of the two beautiful cabins. The hosts are amazing and their attention to every small detail make the experience unique. The lake is refreshing and the desert all around is so peaceful and relaxing. You can hike, bike of ride, or just sit with a book on the porch and enjoy the serenity. This place is awesome and it's great value for money as well. You really try it for a romantic getaway for two.
