The name is in the plural, Aïn being the singular form. The reason for this plural is easy to understand: the site is a corner of Paradise, with springs throwing up living water on all sides. In the verdure one finds every shade of green that an artist might imagine, and when the land is carpeted with wild flower one is transported to another world. Oyoun El Samak lies between the districts of Denniyeh and Akkar, near the village of Saffaret el-Katih.

To reach this site, one must follow a narrow, somewhat ill-made road, winding along a hillside, after which one comes to this valley transformed since 1946 into a lake of outstanding beauty, with cafés and restaurants where one may sit in the cool shade of the trees in surroundings of unrivalled charm.
