El Shouf, the mountainous district in the heart of Mount Lebanon was during the Ottoman rule, left to the governors to take care of their regions- Baakline, Deir el Qamar and Beiteddine.
Today this beautiful environment is home to the Ottoman palace in Beiteddine, and the whole area is filled with vineyards, olive groves, apple orchards, and cedar trees. Wander through the pleasant town of Deir el-Qamar, enjoy the coolness of the old forests of the Shouf Cedar Reserve and be enthralled in the eco-village near Dmit.
Or if you prefer, enjoy lunch on the pleasant terraces of Bkerzay or learn about the high-quality wines of Château Florentine. Take time to visit the charming villages of Baaqline and Moukhtara.
