  • The Pond Summer Garden
    The Pond Summer Garden
    Through Lebanon's long summer there's nothing more natural than eating al fresco in the warm mountain air. As part of the excavations at Faqra we have incorporated a pretty pond below the terraced dining area. The scenery is stunning with views across the gardens, the vines, the Roman temple and all the way to the Mediterranean Sea and Beirut. Several stations will prepare the Buffet and dishes close to the tables. For more inquiries +961 70 122 414.
  • Cellars
    Cellars
    Five magnificent vaulted cellars carefully hollowed out of the mountain rock are the resting places for upwards of 13,000 bottles of vintage red wine. We let nature take care of the ageing process as the wines mature in the natural damp air with temperatures at a steady cool. Alongside the racks are the large oak barrels, foudre and demi-muids, where the white wines are fermenting. We invite visitors to experience the beauty and atmosphere of the cellars or to view them through the glass wall of the Fireplace Restaurant.

The Pond area has space for 600 guests. We provide the venue while the catering and other services are brought in from external suppliers.

    Amphitheatre
    During the building work we took the imaginative decision to create a brand new amphitheatre overlooking the pond. This special feature is an ideal setting for music and drama performances.
