in Siwa you rent a house for long term too, or you can look for en echo lodge room as it is widely used in this part of Egypt, so you would find a very nice atmosphere like eco-friendly style, rooms built out of salt stone, very authentic food too.or even a so-called chalet along any of the springs.
if you are looking for something very special you better go for any villa or apartment on the west Bank of the Nile, where it is very calm, very decent view of the Nile and another of things to see.
where everyone goes for a safari, a lot of hot and cold water springs, you can sleep an overnight in the open air or a small tent to enjoy the milky way on the sky, and different star constellations.
you better look for something along the sea, either an apartment or a hotel, because otherwise why you are going to t,he red sea.😁😁
