Summer

Summer in the mountains of the Negev is the most surprising season. When we talk about the Negev people usually imagine that it is hot, but the mountains of the Negev are over 600 meters above sea level - high enough to allow cool breezes. The dryness of the desert also makes the climate pleasant. Mornings and evenings are delightful, and we seldom use air conditioning. Even during the noon hours it is enough to stand on the shady terrace to cool off and enjoy the breeze.
The trees in the orchard are covered with ripe fruit during the summer, and guests are invited to wander among them and to pick and taste. Visitors can also take a refreshing dip in the garden pools with a glass of the local wine.
