"Perched 1,000 meters above the sea in the area of Batroun, Beit Douma enjoys a commanding view over the mountain and its splendid olive groves. The restored 19th-century Lebanese villa first impresses by its imposing stone façade, tall arched windows and vaulted ceilings. Guests will find in Beit Douma not only a room to sleep in but a home to live in. The walls of the house appear to be the reverential guardians of a luscious past. But rest assured, the surrounding garden and burgeoning apple orchards quickly make one feel part of the story and integrated into the fabric of local life, where each new breakfast under the trees etches unique memories to the timeless story of the place."
