Beautifully and elegantly designed with great taste (buildings, streets, alleys, shops and cafes). But I would say too posh for our taste. Walked into a gallery shop with my older age parents and the owner warned me that she has no insurance if one of my parents would fall she will not be covered :(

Expected to see more of artisans and craft shops, but only found a few galleries. Realxing area for an afternoon stroll with a few nice buildings, but unfortunately not more than that.

It is a quiet and peaceful area in the heart of Beirut... I wish it was car free in all its area because it is a very beautiful walking area where you can find restaurants and cafés... Some free outdoor seating benches... It is highly recommended when you visit Beirut... Beautiful buildings and surroundings colorful areas...

There is a couple of art stores/ galleries, but that's it. The place was dead. Maybe it is a weekend evening kind of place (was there on a Friday afternoon).

I was looking forward to seeing this part of town as it is newly built and the Architecture is BEAUTIFUL - the rebuilding is apparent all over Beirut. I was shocked by the lack of pedestrians and visitors. Rather cold & sterile. My hope is once tourism picks up- it will be lively.

Saifi Village is primarily a residential area, and it's lucky enough to have been renovated after the war, so it's much more beautiful than most of the rest of the city. There's not a whole lot to do there if you're a tourist, but it's nice to go for a little walk through.

This is a small area, very central, beautifully rehabilitated. Hence superb buildings, for the super rich.
There are a few galleries and restaurants but this is it.
Nothing really happens there. And there is no life.

beautifully restored, yet completely sterile. it's supposed to be the 'artist' area of Beirut, but apart from few galleries and a cafe on a street corner, nothing much is happening in Safi village.

What not to love about the Village: the lovely buildings in pastels colours, the quirky boutiques, the shady little squares and the quietness of it all.
Certainly this is a nice way to rebuild after the civil war and a way to give the city a new identity (maybe even an old identity as I do not know how Beirut looked before).
