We visited Beiteddine , being placed over Alshouf mountain gave the place magic every step of the way. You can see the lovely trees over the mountain and the old walls. Take a fresh drink of water coming from AlSafa Springs 2000 m up the mount AlShouf. Beiteddine is closed on Christmas 26th and 27th.

The palace is great and very well preserved, the gardens hold mosaics found in the south and transported there and the view is amazing, you can just sit for a while and enjoy the scenery. Recommended but outside the festival timing (stage and chairs block some nice views)

a beautiful shehabist castle built in the beginning of the 19 century, you can feel the spirit of the emir beside you...all is grandiose especially the president of the republic suit.

This is quite an experience due to the breadth of the various, specialized, artistically-designed rooms. The intricacies of the stone and marble work are really something to behold. There is one room that is a must see. If you look at the roof at a certain angle, you will see a religious symbol that the emir wanted some visitors to... More

Spent a good couple of hours exploring this old and beautiful palace. Coming from the UK exploring our past through architecture is something we are used to and this didn't disappoint. The palace is beautiful and some of the helpers situated around the palace were really eager to explain the history and point out interesting facts. The baths particularly are... More

Really beautiful architecture and gardens - the baths are particularly interesting, although seem less visited. Highly recommended.

Went to the pottery place in the hills on the way to Beiteddine. The pottery place has a great view and offers a fantastic brunch. The Palace is well worth the visit with a beautiful garden, great mosaics and fantastics stone work. Approximately a two hour drive from Beirut through some beautiful hills.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the town and explore the Lebanon of old. The Beiteddine Palace (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beiteddine_Palace) has glorious views, some lovely artefacts including some wonderful mosaics that transcend the millenia. Drive to Chouf afterwards and the complexities and importance of this region is highlighted still further. A great day out.

I visited this palace as part of my tour of Beirut city tour. The outside of this palace looked like any sandstone building, but the inside was so spectacular with detailed carvings, decorated ceilings, floor tiles, etc. .... I think it's more beautiful than the inside of Taj Mahal.
