Flanked by sweeping landscapes and seemingly endless forests, La Maison des Sources is a 200-year-old guesthouse nestled in the picturesque mountain village of Ain Zhalta, located under an hour’s drive of Beirut.

La Maison des Sources · The story

La Maison Des Sources was formerly a private residence, then a school, before being transformed into the exceptional guesthouse it is today. Comprising 11 uniquely designed guest rooms, as well as a communal dining area, a bar and a pretty terrace, the property was meticulously restored by a group of friends, who share a passion for local heritage, art and the great outdoors. Together, they created a welcoming and calm oasis, offering guests an elegant and authentic retreat in the heart of nature.
