Reviewed March 31, 2011

A place we would love to visit again. Friendly and welcoming staff, beautiful surroundings, not far from interesting sights such as Sea of Galilee.

Located less than 20 minutes from the Sea of Galilee, Bar Bakfar is amazing. Situated on its own vineyard (I was welcomed with a bottle of their own Merlot in my room) the property is surrounded by lemon trees and is incredibly tranquil and serene. My room, chalet really, had its own kitchen with fresh milk in the refrigerator and homemade cookies, tea, and coffee. The bed was incredibly soft and comfortable and best of all was the jacuzzi on my private porch, complete with fluffy bathrobes and candles. Yuval, the son of the owner, showed me around the property, gave me great recommendations for dinner, and was very warm and friendly. The breakfast each morning of fresh baked breads, local cheeses, jams, honey, fresh lemonade,a tasty omelet...best ever. Yuval and his family made me feel at home, and I can't wait to return to this magical place.

We had a wonderful two days in Bar Bakfar. Yuval was a briljant host; advising us on good restaurants and things to do in the area and giving us an excellent wine tour!. The rooms were great. We expecially enjoyed the late night jacuzzi after dinner. Breakfast was an unexpected feast. Thanks for a great time!

My Wife and I stayed 3 nights and are already planning our return in May. Bar Bakfar is one of the best hotels we have stayed if not the best. The design, comfort, cleanliness and amazing attention to details plus warm and genuine hospitality set Bar Bakfar well above other hotels in its class. It simply is a gem. Also the breakfast with proper organic ingredients is out of this world. it should not be missed. I highly recommend this hotel to those who are after finer things in life.

If you want a change from impersonal hotels, try this very special place. The units are individually designed with comfortable beds and spa baths, the breakfasts sublime and the views outstanding. You will meet the family, can hear about the plans for their business, and will be treated with care and attention. We loved it.

This is a really wonderful place in a silent and romantic atmosphere. I came here for a romatic week-end and I could no make a better choice. The cabin for two was not veryy big but with all the confort, from the bottle of wine gently offered by the owner to the heart-shape chocolate on the pillows and the candles around the jacuzzi tub. The place is really pleasant and just 20-30 minutes by car from Tiberias and the Kinnereth on one side and Nazareth on the other side. One point more for the accurate and delicious breakfast, tipical Israeli, wonderful home-made bread! An experience that will remain in my heart!
