New Ecovillage & Farm to be built in Siwa, Egypt

Where nature and comfort meet

In the Siwa Oasis, Marcelia al-Salam is currently building a new unique Ecovillage & Farm. Covering an area of more than 12 acres, the ecovillage will offer the ideal place to recharge your energies and experience the best of nature. The ecovillage is located near a peaceful lake and is located about 45 minutes away from the old town of Siwa.

The surroundings of our ecovillage will focus on protecting and restoring the environment and biodiversity in the area. Our gardens, mud houses, and geodesic domes aim to balance buildings and the environment perfectly. Our gardens will be filled with native plants and trees and with an idyllic landscape as a backdrop, you’ll be able to find peace and serenity.

Where We're at Now
