For some reason my wife and I did not really have this castle on our visit list but due to the weather not being great we decided to take the 45 minute drive and are so glad we did! Very pleasantly surprised at this little magical palace with great views of the valley, some beautiful colourful windows and amazing decoration on the walls and ceilings. Well worth a vista when in Beirut!

Beautiful and Good place to visit..
It's a historical place since 212 years . Architect and design is top notch. Garden and landscaping is amazing, the Turkish toilets and Bath interesting, the Mosaic Museum is wounderful , the architecture of
Latticework balcony is beautiful which is closed in by intricate woodwork..

It is a spectacular place, well preserved and well maintained Palace complex, with most of the rooms open to public, a lot of historic objects presented, great mosaics to see. Nowadays, the Palace is used by the President of Lebanon. Also, the location of the Palace is worth mentioning, the Mountains of Lebanon make your photos even more beautiful.

This enormous and well preserved palace is a gem. There are several courtyards but the innermost are where the action is. The rooms are beautifully preserved. You get a real sense of palace life in days gone by. Don't miss it!

As part of our visit to Beirut made a visit to this remarkable palace in mount Lebanon. Only less than an hour form Beirut city one will find this well preserved pearl. This palace was the owned by the emirs of the S(C)hehab family that ruled over this region. This venue is well maintained and the rooms and former stables are majestic.This is definitely a palace with an eye for 'grandeur' that was shown during the era when they ruled over the region. So impressive when walking around! (We were lucky with the weather during the december month). Everyone who visits Beirut should take the time to visit Beiteddine!

Many of the places visited in Lebanon were very old, by contrast, this palace was built in the 19th century. The decoration in the rooms is beautiful and highly elaborate, becoming more so the further in to the palace you go. In addition to the beautiful rooms, it's possible to visit the hammam. We were fortunate to be let out of a door to see the magical roof of the hammam. Decorations on the ceiling depict the major religions of Lebanon, a cross, the koran and a bible.

A beautiful palace with hidden gems in every room and in the grounds. The largest mosaic collection outside of Beirut. A highlight of any trip to Lebanon

As usual in TripAdvisor the same place is listed 2 or more time but in this case is OK so I can add to my other review!
You really feel the history in the Palace and the fact that it is still in use today is shown from rooms that have more “updated” furnishing and a more intimate feel.
I think that a visit is really worth as this place shows that yesterday places are not only museums but can be still used and enjoyed.

Such a beautifully maintained Palace (still in use today as the September retreat of the President of Lebanon).
To be frank the Ottoman era palaces that you can see in Turkey are much grander but this still does impress and the carvings either in stone or in marble or in the wood panelling of most rooms are really beautiful. It is a kind of a surprise once you arrive inside with the serene courtyard and the fountain and then touring the quiet and fresh rooms...really worth the visit!

I am sure this place is lovely, however they charged us to go in and then most of the rooms were closed due to a wedding going on in the grounds, they should have told us this before we paid to enter, very wrong.
