We needed a place close to the launch point for our (subsequently cancelled ;-(( hot air balloon ride. On weekends the villa is rented to accommodate family get togethers: grandparents, children, grandchildren. there are four family suites in the main house and one cabin in the large yard. The villa has a large heated pool (26 degrees year-round), a 6-person jacuzzi (40 degrees) near the pool, table tennis, trampoline, located next to a horse-riding school.

Our family of 5 got to stay in the cabin by the pool since it was a week night and the main house was not rented. Yoni manages the property for the owner Anat, both live nearby. Yoni was wonderful and catered to all our needs ("call me ANYTIME at ANY HOUR"). Wonderful home-made breakfast on the villa terrace, a swim in the pool, a family session in the outdoor jacuzzi under the full moon.

All in all a wonderful stay that helped us easily get over the cancelled hot air balloon ride which was the original reason for being there at all !

Many nearby attractions and national parks (Gilboa, Sakhne Hot Water Springs).

We chose to go to Gan Guru Australian zoo to feed and pet the kangaroos !
Then to Beit She'An National Park to visit the impressive and widespread ruins of Byzantine city of Scythopolis. A MUST see ... the park closes at 16:00, which was perfect timing to watch the sunset from the top of the acropolis before being the last visitors to exit the park ;-) (as the inventory accountants say: last in last out)

Room Tip: WiFi does not reach the cabin near the pool but is available in the main house

After visiting the place for three consecutive years, we can say that it is a rare place that keeps the high standard througout the years.
We came there as a group of 15 people, enjoyed the clean pool, beatiful rooms and the delicious breakfast served at the back yard.
Highly recomended!

A family reunio of 4 families. As grandmother to 8 aging 4-18 we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Villa.The public areas such as the living room, the shaded terrace overlooking the garden are spacious. Situated in a quiet place surrounded with a well-kept garden. Enabling trips to nearby sites during the day. we all spent hours in the swimming pool which is partly shaded and the jacuzzi. Ping pong and a small playground were also an attraction.Anat and Yoni cared for a tasty breakfast - plenty of fresh vegetables and cheeses plus hot dishes from the oven, which was enough for lunch too. We were delighted to have found vacancy in June as the Villa is very demanded.

We stayed in Vila Bakfar in july 2014 and had a great stay. The house was very well suited for many families/couples and the service and cleaning was great. We really enjoyed the pool, the garden and the big terasse in front of the house.
