The eco-lodge created by Dr Mounir Neamatalla at the foot of the “white mountain” is like some fairytale casbah from ”A Thousand and One Nights” – a castle of clay, sand and salt. The building is all done with local materials: with kershef – a traditional mixture of sun-dried rock salt, clay and straw – for the walls, with sandstone for the bathrooms, palm trunks and fronds for chairs and hand-woven fabrics for coverings. Everything is minimalist and harmonious
Adrère Amellal Desert Ecolodge is a paradox in process, mingling the asceticism of a Cistercian monastery, the luxuries of a Turkish seraglio, and the whimsy of a Cape Cod Sandcastle located at the foot of the White Mountain in Siwa Oasis, 8 Km outside Siwa Oasis, Adrère Amellal is an eight-hour drive from Cairo.
