The Orlyya Farm is located in the middle of the Ramat-Negev region, at the heart of the beautiful Negev desert scenery in the South of Israel
The unspoiled and breathtaking surroundings are 5 km from Midreshet Ben-Gurion
The farm is named after the priest of the love goddess, Aphrodite, who represents feminine power and wisdom and who, legend has it, is buried in the ancient Nabatean city of Avdat (5 km from the farm).
Avdat, itself, was founded along a commercial trading route of the ancient world with caravans carrying perfumes and spices from Yemen to the ports at Gaza
The typically dry and warm climate in the area offers magnificent starry nights during the summer when you can relish the warm desert breeze. In winter you can enjoy our heated cottages and indulge yourself with a steaming cup of our delicious herbal tea
As a family who lives in the desert, we wish to share the very powerful experience of bonding with the earth
and with oneself In building the farm, we put much emphasis on environmental preservation and great measures were taken to cause as little damage as possible to the beautiful natural surroundings.
The cottages, themselves, were built with regard to wind direction and the sun’s natural course during the day, so that the cottages are passively heated during the winter
and passively cooled in the summer
