This is a large long room through the middle of the house. It is traditional for Siwan houses to have one large living room facing north south to catch the breeze that blows through the house through the day to keep it cool.
An open fire provides extra heat in the winter if required. Additional seating and cushions are available if all ten of you want to cuddle up. There are exposed palm tree beams on the ceiling making the room look a bit like an English baronial hall. This is the traditional way of making ceilings in Siwa.The lighting is provided by wall fittings made from lumps of salt from the lake giving a nice warm glow in the evenings.
The floor through out the house is a soft lime stone about 3 cm’s thick and needed a five tonne truck to deliver! It took Penny nearly a month of solid tiling to get the floor laid, but it was worth it.
The dinning room is actually the same room as the living room, but as it is so long, it feels more like two rooms. You can sit 10 people around the dinner table and for dinner party’s you can beat it. We have had several Christmas dinners around this table with guests and a bit of a party up on the roof afterwards.
This room is slightly separate from the dinning room and is another living room. It has the big arched windows in it and is very bright in the mornings. You can play cards, monopoly in here, what ever and leave it out to finish the next day as it is not in the way.
The walls are very think here and so any noise you make will not disturbe any of the light sleepers who want to go to bed. I like sitting here in the winter in the mornings when the sun comes through the window and read a book ( when i get the time) or after dinner when we have friends over.
When you stay at the Siwa Villa you will soon forget what is just outside the big arched windows in the narrow streets outside. The donkeys and another world going by. Inside you will have your iPod station, beers in the fridge and a book book to read and reflect on the whole situation.
Through out your stay Mohammad the house keeper will be around to keep the fires burning in the house and on the roof using local renewable olive wood and the kitchen sink free of washing up. He is full time and so no matter how much mess you make, he will make it disappear before you return from the desert.
