Villa Chamoun · L’Hôte Libanais

Expect the unexpected in this delightful mountain getaway nestled in the lush Qadisha Valley. Villa Chamoun evokes Lebanon’s glamorous 1960s charm in an upbeat contemporary setting impeccably designed and tailored for your comfort and relaxation.

Villa Chamoun · The place

A former family home built in 1965 by the Lebanese visionary and industrialist Toufic Chamoun, Villa Chamoun is brought back to life thanks to the owner’s grandson. With his discerning taste and astute eye for detail, Rony made sure the legacy and splendour of the place were honoured with a refreshing creative twist. Lebanese and international design icons, Nada Debs, Rana Salam, Fares Dagher and others, were commissioned to bring their signature contributions to the storied guesthouse injecting plenty of flair and playfulness.

Villa Chamoun · Things to do

You can easily not step out of Villa Chamoun with activities and treatments to keep you occupied and rejuvenated, such as yoga, personal training workouts and therapeutic massages held on the splendid panoramic rooftop terrace. Otherwise, bask under the sun while enjoying their enticing pool and its spacious deck with lovely retro accents. The guesthouse is conveniently located in Hasroun, an authentic traditional village that is arguably the most beautiful in the Becharre District. Activities include hiking in the sacred Qadisha Valley and the Cedars of God forest or a visit to the Gibran Khalil museum near the town centre. Culinary activities, like how to make local Mouneh or the regional varieties of Kibbeh can also be arranged for you.
