A lovely villa right next to Shali (the old citadel) which at night is really stunning from the roof of the villa.
Well furnished and very comfortable we had a most relaxing stay.
A unique feature is that it has it's own donkey cart and driver, Mohamed, who also looks after the villa and brings nice flat bread every morning.
Ideal base for exploring Siwa and the desert.
For an evening meal we preferred to get some fresh vegetables and roast them at the villa accompanied by a roast/barbeque chicken from the street vendors eaten infront of a blazing fire on the roof sipping ice cold beer/wine.
Siwa is dry so you need to take your own alochol.
