Places to Stay ...
October 2011: Villa Galilee Hotel has recently been included in the Chateaux and Hotels Collection, an exclusive group of European hotels and restaurants. The organization was formed in 1975 and now includes 500 hotels and restaurants in France and other parts of Europe. The Villa Galilee is the first hotel in Israel to be included in this group.
The Villa Galilee boutique hotel is located on the Canaana Mountain, high above downtown Safed.
This hotel, at the top of the highest point in the city, has some of the best views of the Galil. To the west you can see Mount Meron, to the south there is Safed and the Kinneret, and the Golan Heights in the east. This is also one of the few places in the Middle East where you can escape the summer heat.
China closets and glass covered cases in the lobby and on floors display the families collections. There are rugs, flowered curtains and charming tables and objects everywhere you turn, in the rooms and in the lobbies and landings. You will enjoy taking some time to admire the collection.
One of the crowning features of Villa Galilee is its restaurant. Meals are served in the beautiful hotel Tzafta Chef’s restaurant, decorated with an eclectic collection of plates, pictures and reproductions of classic French painters.
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, Sunday – Thursday from 1:00pm - 10:00pm and Friday night dinner with reservations in advance. At dinner, wall lighting gives the restaurant a very pleasant glow, and indeed you will feel like you are in a beautiful European restaurant. Guests at the hotel can enjoy a 3-course dinner for two at the flat rate of a NIS 300.
A very fine buffet breakfast is served from 8:30 - 10:00am. The breakfast is rich in salads, cheeses, pastries, coffee and juice and omlettes as you like them. In the style of the hotel, the breakfast buffet is beautifully presented and the dining is elegant on lovely colored tablecloths. This quiet and relaxed atmosphere is a far cry from the noise and the hub-hub in the big hotels.
The luxurious Villa Galilee Spa with dry sauna and treatment rooms is located on the pool level of the hotel. The spa was designed with the ultimate in relaxation in mind. The Villa Galilee staff is happy to assist you in reserving and choosing the right treatment.

About the Hotel From eLuna Members :
Submitted by: Pamela R., Date: October 2010. Description: We loved the hotel. It is, as you know, very small and very beautifully furnished and we enjoyed every minute we spent there. The breakfast was outstanding and we enjoyed the one evening meal we ate there. We found the staff very helpful, and they could not have done any more for us. The lobby with its beautiful sitting areas was such a relaxing place to sit and chat with our friends. Absolutely wonderful.
