Lebanon's best example of early 19th century Lebanese architecture... It is a truly amazing palace! It has decorated ceilings, colourful marble mosaic floors, luxurious Turkish Baths and harem suites, in a setting of beautifully groomed gardens, a formidable guest house, water jets and colonnades.

Located in the heart of the Chouf region, the town and palace of Beit Eddine are a must see when visiting Lebanon. It is a 35-40 mn drive South East of Beirut and it is always better for non-locals to secure the service of a local touristic company.
