In the 19th and 20th century, Sawfar was a favorite summer destination for Beirut’s elites. The region was full of ravishing villas, among them the beautiful Donna Maria Sursock Residence.

During the Lebanese civil war, militias looted and damaged the villa. The residence is currently inhabited, but small steps are being taken to renovate the building.

The view of the clouds above the valley is spectacular!

Sawfar is one of the best road trip destinations in Lebanon!
