COLIVING IN SIWA OASIS

LARGE COLIVING HOUSE

SIWA VILLA

Somewhere Different’s co-living co-working space in Egypt is located in a house called the Siwa Villa. It was/is a luxury villa built for families wanting high-end desert tours and was very successful before the revolution in Egypt in 2011. There are 4 rooms, single, double, twin and a dorm with 4 beds. The rooms surround the main work area so you can work with others or switch back and forth to your room for calls or private work anytime.

On the roof we have a fire pit where we gather after work in the evenings to try and not talk about work and plan our weekend trips out into the desert or a hot spring you have not visited yet. It has a spit for roasting lambs, goats, chickens… oberjeans – what ever you fancy
.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

I have a Land cruiser, I know my way around the desert and I like nothing more than going out there. So when we are all up for it, we can go out for day trips at the weekends when we are not working and even sleep out there. We do full moon walks out in to the desert – its pretty amazing to walk for hours with just the moon to guide you. Then there are the hot springs – we visit them too at the weekends or sometimes during the week. The jeep has enough room to take us all and even the odd backpacker we find in town who wants to hang out. Quiet Neighborhood in Siwa – We are in a nice villa made of mud in a very quiet part of town behind the old Shali fort – yet only 5 minutes from the souk and restaurants and as much Siwan cultural experiences as you want.
