Our group of 4 couples spent 3 wonderful nights here in April. The grounds are very nice and the rooms are comfortable. We each had one of the rooms with our own personal deck and hot tub.

We stayed in the site for a lovely weekend. Being 6 couples with young children. We loved every minute! The housing, the breakfast and pool were to a high standard and we enjoy it all. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. The children were ecstatic, running around playing. Highly recommended

Great location between the Kineret and Mt. Tabor. Owners were delightful and extremely helpful. Nice surprises such as a relatively large pool overlooking the vineyard, private jacuzzi, and a complimentary bottle of wine with two glasses in the room. Breakfast is excellent. On the downside, rooms and bathrooms are very small and bags overflow to the kitchenette. Overall great stopover... More

If you like Israel and if you like Tuscany, this is for you. Barbakfar seems to be like a combination of both. This place is part of moshav and therefore far away from hectic city life. You are surrounded by vineyards, fields and trees and you feel like in paradise. There is outside pool and every villa has it´s own... More

Very friendly hosts. Private patios with jacuzzi's are great. Cabins are spatious and located in a beautiful garden. Extensive breakfast is served in pool area. Only downside is that there are no restaurants in immediate vicinity but ~10 min drive.
