the story...its a small, humble house. I lived my early childhood in. Now I live up upstairs. Since then, the "small house" became a dear place for family and friends visits. I just want to make people traveling happy because that's what I wish for when I travel; a welcoming and great place to stay at.
You are welcome and consider yourself lucky.
...and here's the formal description-
Located at 1000 meter above sea level, the area is known for its healthy environment. It is surrounded by pine and oak trees with spectacular mountain and sea views. A place of tranquility, fresh pine air away from the noise and pollution of the city, and a mere 20 minutes by car from the capital beirut.
It is a perfect place for small families. Kids will love it. Lots of space to play and explore safely and connect with nature. It is a quiet place in winter, and spring and suitable for meditation and reflection. Plenty of walking trails around.
Fully furnished, cozy and clean with an attached garden ideal for barbecuing. You'll find plenty of fruit trees like grapes, peach, apricot, pears, apple, olive and a cherry plus some fresh green leaves for a cool salad. Feel free to pick and eat. The bus stop is 1 km walking distance away and 17 km away from the recreational ski resort in Zaarour.
Lebanese home food available upon request.
Are there better words than excellent and fantastic? This gorgeous little place, nestled high above the heat and humidity of Beirut couldn't have been better. Elias and his family are models of hospitality---friendly, helpful and thoughtful. Breakfast each day was a panoply of Lebanese specialties, beautifully prepared. The accommodation is very clean and thoughtfully and thoroughly laid out---right down to a spare toothbrush, if you've mislaid yours. It doesn't get any better than this!
AMAZING family, and incredible, peaceful view at this cozy mountain place. Elias is very kind, helpful, and accommodating and makes every effort to make sure your stay is great. I definitely recommend him. Traditional Lebanese hospitality in the clouds; an experience to be remembered for many years.
Elias flat was a very interesting experience in Lebanon mountains, almost the necessary facilities are availible, it was very safe stay with a quiet environment around, we enjoyed the family generousity and helpfulness, also elias is a very helpful person with a kind humor.
We had an absolutely perfect stay in Elias's beautiful apartment high in the mountains of Lebanon. The view is spectacular. The accommodations - though modest - were perfect for my wife and I. We were comfortable and happy with the property. Elias and his family are very friendly and even washed our clothes for us. It was very much like staying with members of my family. If you want to enjoy Lebanon and Beirut but wish to retire each night to a quiet, comfortable location, I highly recommend this place.
I loved staying there, the apartment is really cozy, very clean and the location is fantastic. Many thanks and look forward to being back again one day.
