This unique old stone house is located at the entrance to Solomon's Valley, overlooking the Red Sea, and
the Edom (Red) Mountains. It stands as the most southern house in the State of Israel.
Williams House was built in 1931 by Lord Leonard Williams, a British intelligent officer and a geologist,
who served Her Majesty's Secret Service, spying in Israel.
In 1948, when Israel’s Independence was declared, Williams fled in haste to Jordan aboard his rowing
boat (Rumours suggest that he only had one paddle).
In 1950 Ilana and Amos Ofer settled in Williams House, where they lived and raised their daughter.
During that period, Williams House became a local art centre where various painting, pottery and
sculpture workshops were held. Many of Eilat's artists have presented their works here.
Williams house is now a spiritual and ecological centre that offers boutique lodging and conducts both
ecological awareness and Mind/Body workshops.
