A beautiful palace that overlooks the valley and the mountains that surround it. It is extremely well preserved and includes furniture and artifacts from a historical time in Lebanon. The gardens and the mosaic display are also spectacular!

This palace has a range of Middle eastern influences. We were visiting in the morning when there were no tour groups. The architecture, the furnishings, the bath house and the mosaic exhibition were all beautiful. Our guide's stories of the Emir and his exile added to the visit.

We visited the magnificent display of mosaics which we enjoyed very much. We also visited the rest of the palace and were happy to find that we could take photographs. Visiting Beit Eddine is a must.

This palace is so colorful and fun to see. It has lots of water fountains, There is a gentleman that will explain all the room in the palace. The bath tubs are interesting to say the least.

We had about an hour to walk through this palace and it was really great! The detail involved in all the decor is incredible! The pictures really don't do its justice. I would definitely recommend anyone to go here when they go to Lebanon.

A trip from Beirut into the Chouff mountains with a taxi or hotel driver is a must, but you'll be well rewarded at Beit Eddine With palace rooms and gardens open and displaying mosaics, sculptures and artefacts with outstanding views across the hills and back down valleys of the historic Chouff. Don't miss it.
