Guests often search for this popular amenity
Experience local Bedouin culture by staying in a handmade cave in the Petra desert. Feel at home in a cozy, candlelit red cave, where you will sleep comfortably on mattresses laid out on the floor, surrounded by nature and by the sounds that have comforted generations of Bedouins in Petra.

The space
This cave is unlike anywhere else you will stay in Petra. Nowhere else will you have the chance to meet local Bedouins who have spent their entire lives in Petra, sleep in a luxurious modern version of the caves we and our grandfathers grew up in, and even get the chance to try some local cooking! Our motto here is "Feel home," and we are sure you will.

Where you’ll be

Petra, Ma'an, Jordan

Little Petra is outside the busy commercial tourist centre of Wadi Musa, giving you a chance to relax and experience a bit of nature. You have the chance to visit the small siq and painted triclinium that few tourists get the opportunity to see. And you will get a sense of what it's really like to live here in Petra where traditional Bedouin culture and the comforts of modern life are constantly meeting and meshing.

I am Attallah Albdoul of the Bedouins who live in Petra and who are from there, I am part of the Huwaitat tribe which lives in the South of Jordan. I was born in a cave in Petra, I spent my childhood between the mountains of Petra and I went to live in Europe a few years, but my heart remained between the mountains of Petra, for this reason I came back to my homeland and started working in tourism to introduce my culture, my way of life and the history of my ancestors to the curious, who like me, love people of all nations and of all cultures. I live in Little Petra, 10 minutes from the magical site of Petra (I say that the site of Perta is magic but everything here is magic!! I let you discover this when you will be here ;-)) We Bedouins, are known for our simplicity, our hospitality and our special welcome to the guests we receive! My motto is "Come as a guest and leave as a friend" I therefore, put at your disposal my house; you can stay either in a room with all the modern comforts, either in my cave, if you prefer a total immersion in the Bedouin life ;-) I can also provide healthy bedouin dinners, whose price is not included in the accommodation, shows with Bedouin music, guided tours, horseback riding, donkey rides or camel riding in Petra. I also organize hikes for groups between 3 to 8 people that you can see on my (Hidden by Airbnb) (Website hidden by Airbnb) Je suis Attallah Albdoul des Bédouins qui vivent à Pétra et qui y sont originaires, je fais partie ‎de la tribu Huwaitat qui habite le Sud de la Jordanie.‎ Je suis né dans une grotte à Petra, j'ai passé mon enfance entre les montagnes puis, je suis ‎partie vivre en en Europe quelques années, mais mon cœur est toujours resté entre les ‎montagnes de Petra et c'est pour cette raison que je suis revenu dans ma terre natale et ‎commencé à travailler dans le tourisme afin de faire découvrir ma culture, mon mode de vie et ‎l'histoire de mes ancêtres aux curieux, qui comme moi, aime les gens de toutes les nations et de ‎toutes les cultures. ‎ Je vis à Little Petra, à 10 Minutes du site magique de Petra (je dis que le site de Perta est ‎magique mais tout ici est magique!!
