Hannah and Eyal Izrael are the founders of Carmey Avdat - one of the farms established on the Wine Route in the Negev near Sde Boker in the heart of the Negev Highlands. The farm is located on the remains of a 1500-year old agricultural settlement on the path of the ancient Spice Route.An Alternative Idea in Israel LodgingOur concept of Israel lodging and the design and style of our guest cabins were inspired by our travels in the deserts of the Negev, the Sinai, Maroco, Jorden and Australia. Guests at Carmey Avdat enjoy a unique, relaxing experience while lodging in Israel. Our six luxurious secluded cabins are situated against a backdrop of a breathtaking desert landscape. Our Lodging Inspired by NatureLodging in Israel at Carmey Avdat offers guests an opportunity to experience the beauty, tranquility and serenity of the Negev desert. 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 looked for suggestions from our cousin, a former tour guide for this area,and she strongly recommended Carmey Avdat for wine. We chose not to do a tour with them, but bought 6 bottles of wine (including Desert Dessert), and tried the grape juice. Amazing!
