When discovering a new country, one can hardly expect to get a full sense of the place without meeting its inhabitants. By opening their doors to you, and showing you the kind of hospitality they would show to friends who have travelled a long distance to see them, the Lebanese people of Beirut and of the different Lebanese regions share with you bits of their identity, their history, their traditions and their daily lives.
The core mission of our project is to offer you a profoundly human experience, far removed from any standardized “deal”. Our services can only be engaged directly through us, which
enables us to get to know you better and to provide you with personalized guidance and advice. What’s more, the majority of our accommodations are only available for reservation through the L’HOTE LIBANAIS network.
Our independence allows us to stay on top of our development, and protect our project from the perils of business models that overvalue short-term-gains while neglecting the aspects that we find essential. As an independent organizations we are able to maintain your satisfaction, as well as the wellbeing of our hosts and all those who participate in our adventure, as our top priority.
The Internet is not ecologically neutral. By 2020, the total amount of greenhouse gases emitted by data treatment centers could surpass that of the aviation industry (McKinsey & Co., 2008).
L’HOTE LIBANAIS has made the choice to use a green web hosting service. Thanks to the solutions offered by Greenshift (natural thermal exchange-based cooling systems, optimal energetic efficiency servers, etc.) the energetic impact of hosting this web site has been cut almost in half, and its carbon footprint is neutral (100% renewable energy).
A cause for celebration on the Beirut accommodation front, this is a new and exciting way to explore Beirut and beyond. Lebanese families, famed for their hospitality, invite you into their homes (…). It's an absolutely unique way to experience the country, and get a glimpse into the life of the real Beirut.
Une nouveauté au pays du Cèdre, ces chambres d'hôte à prix abordable dans des maisons confortables, souvent anciennes, avec accueil francophone.
Guests become part of the house hold. That evening, we sipped wine in the garden with our hosts and two other guests and put the world to rights, competing with a chorus of frogs, over a homemade dinner of Kibbeh bil-Saniyeh.
"Difla è davvero un indirizzo prezioso: la casa è bellissima, la proprietaria gentilissima e le colazioni al mattino sono tradizionali, deliziose, e diverse ad ogni risveglio. Insomma, per me è stato alloggiare da un'amica libanese con una gran bella casa."
"Un havre de paix — Des chambres propres et joliment décorées. Petit déjeuner aussi féérique que le décor. Accueil chaleureux. Charme et tranquillité. Logement original au Liban, où les tours de béton en guise d'hôtels de luxe poussent comme des champignons."
"Great hospitality — Jamil was an incredible host. Traditional Lebanese breakfast every day, a beautiful apartment in a great, central location in the heart of Beirut. We had a great time, and he was very helpful with recommendations and directions!"
Margo has two passions: helping others and spreading her love of Lebanon. A trained nurse, she has practiced this profession in Lebanon and in France, while also sharing her intimate knowledge of Lebanon, its hiking trails, particularly in her home region of Mount Lebanon. Joining the L’HOTE LIBANAIS team in 2011, she is today the project’s acting manager. She continues to participate in social and humanitarian projects in Lebanon and abroad.
Having had enough of London, Barcelona and Doha, Elyssa has finally returned to Lebanon. Always active in a multitude of projects involving theater, cinema, radio, television and cultural organizing, Elyssa first joined our team as an activities coordinator and promotional advisor. Today she pursues her adventure as a regular contributor to our Magazine, describing the Lebanon she knows and loves, bubbling with initiatives and constant rebirth.
He will most likely be the first face you will see when using L’HOTE LIBANAIS. Khodr is an independent taxi driver, and it is usually he who will greet you at the Beirut International Airport. Possessing an almost immovable calm (a quality of infinite value when confronting Lebanon’s traffic), this excellent driver will open the door towards your discovery of Lebanon. P.S. It was Khodr who introduced Orphée to one of the finest coffees he’s ever drunk in Lebanon.
"It has now been almost 10 years since the L’HOTE LIBANAIS idea first saw light. Armed with their enthusiasm and a wish to share their passion for Lebanon, our fellow adventurers came from all corners of the horizon to breathe life into this project. It is thanks to them that L’HOTE LIBANAIS is now able to provide an experience of Lebanon that places the intimate encounter with its inhabitants at the forefront. I am today leaving its management in the hands of people whose passion assures me that they will continue to uphold the project’s mission. We are all in love with Lebanon, more so now than ever, and we wish for the whole world to be as well."
Today Orphée is a contributor to our Magazine.
