Baffa House · The atmosphere

Baffa House is a charming bed and breakfast in the heart of Beirut’s creative district, Mar Mikhael. This typical 1940s heritage home is an exceptionally renovated and tastefully decorated escape from the city’s hustle and bustle.

The story behind Baffa House

At the core of Baffa House is a beautiful love story that fills the home with a palpable warmth. Decades ago, Antonio, the hosts’ grandfather, fell in love with a Lebanese woman and decided to relocate his life to Mar Mikhael. More than half a century later, his grandson Samer and Samer’s wife, Jessica, decided to continue the family legacy in the neighbourhood, accommodating those who want to discover Beirut in a unique way.

Baffa House · Meet the hosts

Baffa House is a light and airy four-bedroom home that combines a traditional Lebanese aesthetic with modern design elements. Samer is a filmmaker and Jessica is a graphic designer; together, they have created a personal, unique space that is more than a home to them: they even celebrated their wedding on the terrace, under the vines Antonio planted thirty years ago.
