This home was perfect for our family. It had everything we needed and was beautifully appointed. There was plenty of room for us to spread out with our four children and they loved all of the little nooks and crannies. Everything was prepared for us in advance and the owners were extremely accessible if we needed anything. Everything was clean and in excellent condition. We will certainly stay here on our next trip to Tzfat!
My family of 8 had a FANTASTIC stay, and wished we could have stayed for even longer. The Villa is in the perfect location, and was amazingly beautiful. The main floor is one of a kind stunning, and the guest cottage was perfect for my married son & his wife. Nicole & Amir have thought of every last detail to make your stay perfect. Most importantly, they were extremely professional and accommodating in every way. The ONLY place you should stay with a family in Safed!!
most beautiful house in the heart of safed. A touch of ancient safed with a modern updated house. great service.
The absolute, hands-down, most amazing place you can stay in Tzvat . . . or maybe anywhere. Nicole and Amir have created a space that will blow your mind. My family and in-laws (7 total) stayed for half a week and were wishing we had booked for longer. The Bem's fantastic site manager Danny is around the corner for any questions you might have. Bedrooms are through an outside courtyard but please do not let this keep you from renting. In becomes a benefit. The entire home, from cozy family room to the rooftop deck (with an unreal sunset and view, the most peaceful place for your morning coffee), the kitchen with everything and then some, the wood burning stove (with the makings for smores waiting for us!), the grand room couches that are so cozy you'll fall asleep, the modern amenities, the kitchen, the original stone, the arches, the mosaic floors, the romantic bedroom . . . the everything. Trust us. You'll be so happy. Rent it!
We wanted a house for 10 people in various combinations of family, couples, friends etc walking distance to the amazing synagogues. We were fortunate that Nicole and Amir's beautiful villa was available. We spent a week there and the highlight was shabbat. They had thought of everything and I mean everything! Usually you make do when you spend shabbat away but this time we got some tips from them :).
The only negative is that the toilet in the main house is in one bedroom so if you are not all close family it can be inconvenient to go outside to the two other apartments specially when it is rainy and cold. But this is a small thing. When we needed help with various things Amir was very patient and helpful as was their friend Danny who runs the B&B above who showed us the villa when we arrived. It was one of the highlights of the 3 weeks in Israel. Special mention should go to the restaurant on the main street which sells food for takeaway for shabbat - if only we had one of these in our community! The supermarkets near the villa are horrible, best to drive to the larger more modern ones on the way up the hill. You can walk to any number of restaurants, synagogues and shops from the villa and the artist colony is 7 minute walk. If you want an amazing experience authentic Sfat (and this is coming from a rather jaded traveler) then stay here. It is worth every $.
We stayed here for a weekend in October with a family of six. We arrived later than we had wanted to. Nevertheless, someone was available to show us around. The villa is even more special than the pictures. It is very clean - which was a priority for me. The villa is decorated and has the charm of old Tzefat - which was so much a part of the whole experience. The kitchen has beautiful modern facilities and everything needed to cook or just serve catered food. In each part of the villa there were different sleeping accommodations. The safety on the steps would be an issue if I was coming with little children. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning.
One of the best family vacations we've had! The property was enchanting. The location/setting, decor, courtyard etc... The property owners/managers really considered every detail, we wanted for nothing. There was a bookshelf full of interesting reads for all ages, so many cozy nooks in which to curl up with a cup of coffee, a listing of all manner of wonderful suggestions and attractions for local travel and exploration and more. We really feel as if we escaped to another time and place, another world. We so enJOYed and can't wait to return.
