Villa
This unique, historic home in the heart of Tsfat's Artists' Quarter has been impeccably renovated and converted into a spacious, peaceful getaway. Why choose a hotel room when you can stay in a luxurious home? When you choose Villa Tiferet, you get a 3,800-square-foot home (and two courtyards and a rooftop…and more) All to yourselves! Relax in the Moroccan-style courtyard with its colorful pillows and splashing fountain. In the late afternoon, catch the sun setting behind the mountains from the large rooftop. The fully equipped, state-of-the-art kitchen is kosher. And with a table that seats 16 in the elegant dining room, it is perfect for entertaining and Shabbat meals. Child friendly, there are board games, puzzles and books as well as kids' movies on Apple TV in the master bedroo...This unique, historic home in the heart of Tsfat's Artists' Quarter has been impeccably renovated and converted into a spacious, peaceful getaway.

About the neighborhood
Villa Tiferet is in the heart of the Artist's Quarter of Safed. Park your car for free on the road above and take the steps down, The house is set at the end of a cobbled alleyway, and when you enter the old painted door into the courtyard, you will feel as if you are in another world. Danny greets all our guests and shows them around the house. He is also available to answer any questions during your stay and can help out with guiding. The house is steps away from the midrechov, the main street of Safed with shops and restaurants. If you are in Safed on a Wednesday, head down to the farmer's market where you will feel like a local. The synagogues and galleries of the Old City are a 10-minute walk away from the house. If you love to hike or bike, you can do so from the front door. W...
Getting around
All the sites in Tsfat are within walking distance of the villa but be prepared for hills - the town is built on the side of a mountain. The central bus station is a 10-minute walk from the house. Busses from here can take visitors everywhere in Israel. Please note that there are no busses in Tsfat on Saturdays.
