Description from owner


Eco-touristic, designed vacation apartment in Middle of Israel near the British Park, 30 minutes from Jerusalem, 50 minutes from Tel-Aviv , the best opportunity to feel the genuine bible landscape, at the 'Land of the thousand caves', agriculture kisses natural habitat areas, including a third dialog with the forest. A personal small designed pool in the garden, where you can relax and read a book.

An international ecological artist and an industrial designer created a great garden apartment by the forest close to all great sightseeing, shopping and hikes in-between the two major cities.

The hosts created the same place that they would like to spend time, when they go on vacation.

The house is decorated with the artist's genuine photography artworks and art books, and is very comfortable.

This happy, hand made by artists' garden apartment is in a small village just in the middle of Israel easy to reach everywhere by car, peaceful and with a homely environment

If you have a poetic soul, and an appreciation to self made simplicity, it is a must.

One of our guest could tell a 100 different sounds of the birds which have surrounded our place. Another felt like writing his book finally. a couple decided on a start-up after brainstorming in our green heart vacation apartment..

In all the apartment, wooden floor and an outside peaceful wooden deck with sitting area in the garden made of palms. 

The apartment comes with all of the necessary features such as a wireless network, free parking, washing machine plus an espresso machine, herbal organic herbs for tea, international and local art & ecology books, painting materials.

The house is built ecologically, keeping temperature comfortable at any season.

In our village – Srigim - there are alternative medicine healers (an acupuncturist, a shiatsu healer, Thai massage and more). The host is giving Ilan Lev treatments, a revival method for the body & mind. an art gallery, nature walks, guided imagery, and photography workshops in the forest- are available to reserve.

Nearby there are great home-made cooking meals, breweries, wineries, archaeological and historical sites for the days spent in the local area, organic vegetable baskets can be purchased weekly. Local festivals happens from time to time.

Waking up to the sound of birds singing and to the wind caressing the old trees is a wonderful sensation to be experienced in this place.

Ideal for a couple or a family.

Keywords: Eco-tourism, eco-vacation apartment, beautifully furnished hand-made artistic suite, near the British Park, in the center of Israel, close to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, at the ancient Ella-Valley where David fought Goliath.

The photography and eco-art centre are just nearby the garden suite in which one can observe genuine artworks that are a result of a long-term investigation of environmental issues mostly inspired by Nature.
