Situated on the eastern slopes of Mount Lebanon, the tranquil village of Ammiq enjoys a panoramic view over the fertile plain of the Bekaa Valley. Roman legions once feasted here, nearby their magnificent temples at Baalbek stand in testimony to their presence. Today, the area around Ammiq is designated as a Unesco place of special scientific interest known as the Shouf Biosphere Reserve, to include historic wetlands, forests, and mountain trails.
Within the Biosphere, housed in a purpose-built, the eco-friendly structure is Tawlet Ammiq restaurant and Beit Ammiq guest house – part of the Souk El Tayeb network to promote and conserve Lebanese food and traditions.
An ideal spot to relax and contemplate this timeless landscape, Beit Ammiq is home away from home with traditional warm wood interiors and soothing natural lighting. A place to dine under starlit skies and wake up to breathtaking scenery, than to feast on a traditional Lebanese breakfast.
