“Amazing weekend”

My husband and I stayed at Villa Tiferet for a long weekend with some friends. We loved it. The villa is very sapcious. It has a beautiful big kosher kitchen fully equiped, a big dining room that can seat many and a really cozy living area by a good old fireplace. All three have very high ceilings of natural stone. There are also four bedrooms of which we used three. Two had an en suite. The roof had an amazing view that we enjoyed at sunset but you can eat a meal there and enjoy it even more. They had games and books to entertain a whole family.. we only used the dvd selection.

Every little detail was tought of and beautifully designed and furnished. I especially loved the light fixtures. And of course lots of the Tzfat blue that makes sure you keep in the spirit of Tzfat. For us it was very romantic and relaxing.

The villa is located a two minute walk from lots of cafes and shops. We especially enjoyed having breakfast in the heart of the artist quarter by the multiple studios you can find in Tzfat.

We absolutely reccomend Villa Tiferet.

Please note that there are many steps in Tzfat. Some in the Villa itself, but mainly through the city.

So happy to hear you had a great time. Vill Tiferet can be a real romantic getaway for couples. Glad you spent time on the roof to enjoy the sunset. This is one of the best features of the house and people often don't take time to watch the incredible colors from the rooftop. On summer nights, you can also see shooting stars!

“Ideal Place to Stay in Tzfat”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in Tzfat for five days as the "preamble" to our son's Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem. Ten of us stayed in the Villa Tiferet, and we were able to invite additional guests (who were staying in a local bed and breakfast) for the Shabbat meals. The villa turned out to be even more beautiful and magnificent than what we anticipated from the photos. The gorgeous kosher kitchen was immaculate and well stocked with everything we needed (meat and dairy dishes, pots,etc.) to prepare our meals. Sitting down to meals in the very grand dining area - with its high arched stone walls- was a truly wonderful experience. The attention to detail in this well-appointed home is obvious everywhere. The bedrooms all had very comfortable beds and bedding, and there were plenty of towels, toiletries, and everything we could possibly need in the beautiful modern bathrooms.

When we arrived at the villa, we were welcomed by the Zehavi family, the owners' neighbors and friends - who graciously showed us through all the rooms and answered all our questions. They took the time to show us everything we needed to know about the house, and also left us written instructions on how to find or work anything we needed - as well as their cell phone numbers! So we ended up with both a magnificent home - and magnificent neighbors. Danny Zehavi also led us on some beautiful hikes in the area and gave us lots of great recommendations throughout our stay in Tzfat. We ended up meeting lots of great people, hiking beautiful trails and enjoying great vistas, and getting a real taste for Tzfat and its environs. When the time came to leave to continue on to Jerusalem, we all felt that we were leaving a part of ourselves in Tzfat. We definitely would return to Villa Tiferet on any future trip to Tzfat; it would feel like returning home.

So happy you came to Safed as part of your son's bar mitzvah trip. There is so much for families to do in Tsfat and around the area, especially if they are outdoor enthusiasts like your families!
The Zehavis are wonderful; they give such special attention to each family, guests feel like they are part of the community (and this is the magic of staying in a home as opposed to a hotel).
We took your comment about the place being more impressive than the photos and did a recent photo shoot. I now feel like the photos tell the real story! Thanks so much for your feedback.

We had a wonderful time at the beautifully designed villa tiferet. This homey spacious setting allowed us to feel like we were on a unique vacation. Having an entire villa also enabled us to hang out for those extra special moments around the dining room table or around the fire place. Each family member also had their own space, which is certainly needed when family members grow up. All this really makes for a relaxing, real, and bonding family get away.

So happy to hear you had a good time. The house is very spacious so every guest feels as if they can have their own space. This is a big plus for families with older kids and is one of the many benefits of staying in a house as opposed to a hotel. For quiet time, there are many options including cushioned nooks, window seating as well as cozy pillows in the courtyard and hammocks and lounge chairs on the roof!

Stayed for three nights with my wife, my 12 year old and and an infant, we had an amazing time. The house is so clean and spacious and I felt like the owners wanted us to enjoy everything the house had. I look forward to returning!!!!

My husband, three children and I stayed in this wonderful, completely renovated, unique home. It includes a beautiful luxury kitchen. private peaceful courtyard and plenty of space.
Located in the heart of the old city with easy access to synagogues, artist colony, shopping and breathtaking hikes. There's no reason to stay anywhere else!

Great to hear. Villa Tiferet is definitely centrally located. The stores of the main street are literally steps away, while all the galleries and synagogues are a short walk from the house. You can even hike out the front door and head down into Nahal Amud, one of Israel's most beautiful national parks. We are always happy to help our guests find interesting activities to do.
