Dar Qadisha · Overview
Your feet on the ground and your head in the sky! Travel 1,400 meters above sea level to a village perched on top of the Qadisha Valley. Around you, snowy peaks, ancient Cedars, monasteries carved out of the rocky cliffs, breathtaking hiking trails, and the soul of the immortal poet Gibran Khalil Gibran wafting on the breeze.
Dar Qadisha · In detail
The Qadisha Valley (‘Wadi Qadisha’), which literally means ‘Holy Valley’, is classified as a Unesco World Heritage site. It’s in one of the villages overlooking this extraordinary site that Jacqueline is waiting to welcome you. Look for a house with a red shingled roof, one terrace shaded by leafy bowers, another terrace for contemplating the mountains… and a whiff of Jacqueline’s famous homemade jams.
Dar Qadisha · Meet your host
Born in the ‘Holy Valley’, Jacqueline is surely among the region’s most fervent ambassadors. She cultivates her vegetable garden and several other plots in the surrounding area, the fruit of which she then transforms into the homemade jams and preserves she offers for sale in her little boutique.
