You are truly in a community comprised of people from all over the work who are volunteering, participating in a variety of ecologically focused courses or managing the Kibbutz. The rooms are clean, well decorated and comfortable. The food in the communal canteen is good and breakfast, all home made, is excellent. The buildings are comprised of mud walls (clay, sand, straw and water) - they are cool in every sense although you still need air conditioning in summer. The Kibbutz is about 20 minutes drive from Timna park which is a geological gem with all manner of erosional features carved by wind and water erosion over time.
There is a free guided tour of the Kibbutz which is outstanding and really makes you realise that everyone can make a difference! The service is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. A place to stay and truly feel immersed in an Israeli culture which looks ahead in a sustainable way.
