Eretz Ha Galil
Reviewed 20 February 2011

Eretz Hagalil runs guest houses (locally know as tzimerrim) on a beautiful mountain top village in the galil region in northern israel. The town itself was started by a group of environmentalists and vegetarians, so needless to say there are beautiful trees everywhere, lush greenery, amazing views and clean crisp air. I stayed at eretz hagalil, which is family run, owning five wooden cabins, with my wife and baby. A crib was set up for the baby, and even though we rented on of the smaller cabins, there was a separate room for the baby. We were greeted by the owners, Revital and Yoram, and warmly welcomed into our home for the next five days, where home baked cookies, a complimentary bottle of red wine, coffee and tea, home made jams, milk and juice, were prepared in anticipation of our visit. We ordered breakfast to our room everyday (we went with the kosher option). Every morning at roughly 8am (which we requested) a box was discreetly left at our door with an assortment of the most delicious foods to begin the day. Omelets, an assortment of locally made cheeses, vegetables, yogurt with fruits and granola, fresh baked muffins, plenty of fresh baked breads, olive spreads, fresh squeezed juices, and even more. Needless to say, the morning feast was enough for us to make some sandwiches for our lunch and some additional snacks. The total cost of this service was 25$, and well worth it.

The cottage itself is on the large property near the owners home. It is surrounded by trees, set of very privately to the side. In front of the cabins is a huge terrace with chairs and a little table. In the back there is a private yard with a hammock and a bench. Our cabin had a queen size bed, a very large jacuzzi with views, wifi, flat screen tv, a small kitchen area and kitchen table. Everything has a wooden feel. I'm from canada and it reminded me of a log cabin here.

In the surrounding area, we visited several wineries, there's a cheese factory and upscale restaurant 5 minutes drive. The ancient city of tzfat, tiberius and it's amazing restaurants (try deck's for meat lovers) and the beautiful lake kinneret, and the most amazing hikes in Israel are all very close. We went to Nachal Amud and Nachal Chziv (nachal is hebrew for valley, so there is usually an oppurtunity here to swim), great excersise and beautiful, and very inexpensive. Overall, we left feeling great, our hosts cleaned our room at least once or twice over our five day stay, replenished our towels, snacks and sheets. If you prefer staying in a hotel built in the 1960's or 70's go to teveria, if you feel like getting away from it all, and enjoying nature and the peacefulness of the coutryside, go to Eretz Hagalil at Amirim.
