Dar Linda · Overview

It takes an adventurous spirit to reach Dar Linda. Following a trip up steep, winding mountain roads, you will find the home quietly nestled in the side of a mountain overlooking Deir El Qamar. Beyond its unique decoration, Dar Linda is characterized by an indescribable serenity, largely due to the quiet garden that surrounds it.

Dar Linda · In detail

The guesthouse fascinates visitors with the many artifacts and ethnographic objects that call Dar Linda’s corners and shelves home. Nour, your host and a distinguished historian, has acquired an extensive collection over her long career and many travels, keen to recount the stories and memories attached to each of her valued treasures.

Dar Linda · Meet your hosts

Nour, along with her two sons Karim and Kamal, are the team behind Dar Linda. Nour is the former director of ‘L’Artisan du Liban’ and as a member of the National Heritage Foundation of Lebanon, she continues to be active in the fields of history and handicrafts. The guesthouse venture is a way for the trio to share their warmth and beautiful home with others.

Dar Linda · Rooms

Dar Linda offers two rooms: the master bedroom has a queen-sized bed; a smaller bedroom, which can only be booked as an addition to the main bedroom, has a single bed. The two rooms share the same private bathroom.
