Guests have free access to the whole house, including a fully-equipped kosher kitchen. The elegant dining area seats 16. Ideal for families, there are board games, puzzles and hundreds of Apple TV movies in the master bedroom plus a large, private courtyard and rooftop.

The cozy living room has two sofas plus a window niche with pillows, ideal for curling up with a book. The living room has is a wood-burning fireplace which is available to guests from December 1st through March 1st.

Here's a quick glance at the layout. Please see the floor plans (displayed as images on this site) for precise details.

One bedroom is accessed from an inner courtyard adjacent to the living room. It has a double bed plus a low couch that can be made into a bed to sleep a child. This room has a bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.

There is also a bedroom on the ground level of the main house with a king size bed that can be split into two single beds if need be. There is an adjacent library room with a sofa that can be converted to a comfortable double bed. There is a bathroom between these two rooms that has a toilet, sink and shower.

There are two more bedrooms upstairs accessed by going outdoors through the main courtyard and then up an external uncovered staircase. Both of these bedrooms each have a double bed, and single bed with a pull out to allow for a maximum of four people per bedroom. There is a bathroom between these two rooms that has a toilet, sink and shower. There is an additional toilet and sink in one of the two bedrooms.

We also have a pack and play crib that can be setup in any of the bedrooms.

Our home is accessed by a cobbled laneway and is below the road so it is peaceful and calm. A two-minute walk takes guests to the shops of the main street. Cafes and restaurants are also a few minutes' walk away. The ancient synagogues and galleries of the Old City are a ten-minute walk from the house.

The best way to get around Tsfat is by exploring the old lanes and alleyways by foot and yes, getting lost! There is free parking on the road above the house, so if you bring a car and want to explore the Galil and Golan, we provide maps and tourist information.

There is no guaranteed street parking. Daily cleaning is not provided during your stay, although you can request this service for an extra charge.

Where you’ll be

Safed, North District, Israel

Tsfat is a world unto its own. Built on a mountainside, there are spectacular, sweeping views from many vantage points. On winter days, clouds billow into the cobbled alleys, while rainbows often arch above. Tsfat is crisp and quiet in the winter season.
Come spring, the nearby valleys are filled with spring flowers and almond blossoms, beckoning hikers, bikers and nature lovers. Summer skies are a sapphire blue and, in August, mornings are pierced with the sounds of shofars echoing from ancient synagogues. Gnarled vines with bundles of grapes twist along the alleys, while ruby red pomegranates hang from the trees.
Summers are busy with many visitors strolling though the galleries, dining outdoors and visiting the old synagogues. During the Klezmer Festival, Safed transforms as tens of thousands of visitors converge to multiple outdoor stages to hear Klezmer, jazz and modern Israeli music.
Shabbat and the Jewish holidays in Tsfat are especially uplifting and are often accompanied by joyous singing,clapping and dancing. Tsfat is also a mystical city and has a deep connection with kabbalah.
For those seeking outdoor adventure, beautiful nature, unique art, vibrant culture and spirituality, Tsfat is a jewel in Israel's north.

After falling in love with mystical Tsfat, my husband and I bought an old home there and renovated it. Aside from being uplifted spiritually here in Tsfat, we love to hike the Galil and Golan, mountain bike in Birya and the surrounding mountains and explore the world famous Israeli wineries. We invite you to come and experience the Tsfat we so love.
