11 Places Around Lebanon That Will Get You In The Mood For Autumn

Snuggle up and pretend like it’s really cold outside with these 9 fall-esque spots in Lebanon.

1. Domaine de Taanayel

A former covent turned nature reserve and agricultural farm managed by the NGO arcenciel, this magical haven in the Bekaa will take your breath away. A scenic walk among the grape vines will lead you to the picturesque lake. Sit on one of the benches, feed the ducks, and take it all in. This is a fantastic spot for children and adults, and entrance is only 3,000 LBP.

2. Double T

Tucked away in the heart of the Chebanie forest, Double T is the ultimate fall getaway. Wooden furniture, a cabin-like setting, and perfect fire pits await you here.

3. La Maison de la Foret

Located in one of the most beautiful forests in Lebanon, La Maison de la Forêt is found in the heart of Bkassine. If you’re looking for a great spot to spend the day or night with the family in the middle of nature, this one’s for you! Their restaurant, Beit el Ghabeh, will serve you delectable fresh meals that will keep you coming back for more.

4. Le Relais de l’Entrecote, Monot

Steak, fries, and wine – the recipe for a perfect cozy dinner.

5. Tawlet Ammiq

Hidden in the stunning Naas area, and nestled in the hills of Bikfaya is the quiet and romantic restaurant Lola whose specialty dishes vary from Foie Gras, Grenouilles, and Escargot to Cote Grill, Filet de Boeuf, and Fondue – all the fantastic autumn dishes. Great food notwithstanding, one of the main reasons to dine at Lola is the magical setting. The sprawling outdoor terrace with plush and comfortable seating runs over two levels, and offers stunningly picturesque views of the small towns and villages below.

9. Cantina Beirut

Right beside our favorite wine bar Cantina Sociale is the sister cafe Cantina Beirut. The decor is minimalist and soothing, ideal for relaxing on a quiet morning or evening. The coffee is great and the bakes are unbeatable.

10. La Ménagerie

A flower shop, concept store, and restaurant all wrapped in one beautiful bow. This eclectic space in Achrafieh is the perfect change of scenery you need. Cozy up to an espresso and a decadent breakfast.
