Here's a hotel with a quiet location and an intimate ambiance, at an affordable price as well. Don't be fooled by the rustic interior and charming stone exterior with 50s architecture: The rooms have been refurbished to offer all the amenities of a more upscale property. In addition, a shuttle service to and from the ski slopes makes it ideal for visitors on a skiing trip. If you like to take in the snow without too much hustle and bustle around you, Chateau d'Eau is an interesting option.
Lying idyllically between the village of Faraya and the ski slopes of Oyoun Al Siman, the hotel is only a five-minute drive from each. The scenic beauty around is breathtaking, particularly in winter. The city of Jounieh is less than an hour away if you want some vibrant nightlife. A must-see trip to Beirut with all its cosmopolitan charm is just over an hour.
Hotel Address: Faraya, Faraya
