Stone huts are insulated against extreme changes of temperature by their thick walls and sealed construction. Within the stone huts temperature and humidity are very confortable during the heat of summer days, and between 11 am and 3 pm temperatures may be 6 C-11,5 C cooler than outside. In the neighbourhood of most of the stone huts water cisterns have been hewn out of the rock to provide sufficient water for the summer. Stone huts are scattered throughout vineyards and orchards in Spain, France, Italy, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel.
