Ah....We turned up at Rom 1125 after an afternoon drive from Jerusalem, not really knowing where we were or where we would stay. We stumbled across the proprietor, Diego, whose mellow demeanour was exactly what we needed after the religious fervour of the holy city.
We stayed in a two-level chalet perched atop Nimrod and overlooking the valley towards the Lebanese border. The wind (you'll notice that right away) is refreshing and hopelessly romantic, bringing with it a night-time mist that envelops the chalet in a thick, blustering cloud.
Rom 1125 has an unmistakable homeliness. It won't be long before you are sampling the spectacular bottle of complementary wine and biscotti. As for the jacuzzi and bed - either come without kids or suggest they go for a long walk.
The restaurant - The Witches Cauldron & The Milkman - is divine. Working through the menu would take a week. Sumptuous, unique, inviting. You couldn't ask for more.
If you like your accommodation woody, your wine delectable, your jacuzzi's (ahem) and your hosts easy-going, you could do worse than stay at Rom 1125.
