AdrÃ¨re Amellal is straight out of a traveler’s fantasy.
It’s located in theÂ Siwa Oasis in western Egypt and the setting is not to be believed.
It is one the world’s last remaining oases and it’sÂ filled with ancient ruins, rock formations, palm groves and salt lakes.
In the middle of this, theÂ AdrÃ¨re Amellal was built as an ecolodge made up of renovated Siwan houses.
All the furnishings areÂ made locally using natural materials and traditional design.
Meals are made from locally sourced food.
And there is no electricity or phones.
It’s all candlelight!
Between the setting and the lodge itself, this has to be one of the most special places in the world.
It seems impossible to me that a place like this actually exists and I’m dying to see it for myself. One day!
Happy Traveling Thursday and bon voyage!
