Moshe, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. The villa overall is also very nice.
Great location in Arad - a small quiet town some 25 minutes drive to the Dead Sea. A very nice base to explore the area, as the climate is materially nicer in the summer vs. the Dead Sea itself. Gets moderately cool in the evenings and we did not even turn on the aircon, while the Dead Sea coast does not cool off a bit. The route to the sea is a pleasure itself with a winding road down the mountains with moon-like landscapes.
We had a studio on the first floor with a separate door from the terrace. Very nice a quite. The terrace is shared with 4 other rooms, but it is very big and enough room to comfortably sit and talk.
The room was nice and clean. Fairly small, but enough to fit two of us with our bags. And we did not plan to spend too much time in the room in any case.
Arad has at least one very nice cafe - sport bar called Muza. We have heard of two more places, but have not checked them. Also an interesting restaurant in a small village. It's market as Durayjat on the google maps, somethign like Da'regat on the road sign. Also Derjit, Derjat in some guides. All the same place. A small arabic village some 20 minutes drive from Arad.
