From the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon, we drove up into the mountains for an hour. In a little village atop a mountain, we found Beit Douma. The most incredible little guesthouse with the kindest staff, amazing food and exquisite interior. We spend two nights there and it was the perfect tranquil way to end our 10-day trip.
Some visuals to get you into the mood
We were spoiled with cakes, fresh fruit and coffee all day long in the main hall. We took a morning trip to the Balou Balaa waterfall one day an strolled in the little village. But most of the time, we just enjoyed the tranquility in the common areas with books and stacks of international magazines, board games and lit candles at night. The garden was perfect for our little one, who could play around and charm the staff.
The garden at Beit Douma
We ate at the guest house every night and enjoyed an outdoor lunch one day. Much of the produce come from the garden and the rest from local suppliers.
