6 Getaways That Will Make You Feel Like Cameron Diaz On “The Holiday”

One thing we absolutely loved about watching Cameron Diaz on The Holiday is the adorable house she gets to live in for the festive season.

Luckily, there are many getaways in Lebanon where you can recreate her brief but magical escape from the city life. Check out these six guesthouses that fit the bill.

1. Beit Alia, Tannourine

Inspired by the famous Fayrouz lyrics, Beit Alia is a charming escape in the heart of Tannourine. Boasting scenic views and cozy cabin feels, this fairytale-like spot would probably have Cameron Diaz swooning. Spend the cold nights by the sobya drinking some hot chocolate (or wine, depending on your taste).

2. Chalet De Charme, Arez

A magical and charming retreat that you can enjoy with a little company. Visiting this spacious cabin will feel therapeutic, especially when you wash away your worries with their wellness area where you can enjoy hydro massages and a Finnish sauna.

3. LogHouse Cabin, Harissa

This cozy retreat boasts a marvelous view, and it’s not too far from the city. You can still enjoy cityscape views without the chaos and traffic, so you’ll find this tranquil log house ideal for a weekend getaway.

4. SaQi Guesthouse, Saqi Rechmaya

We think you might be able to recreate scenes from “The Holiday” at this charming little guesthouse. With an uplifting atmosphere and welcoming vibes, you’ll find it hard to leave once your getaway is over. You might also fall in love with the neighborhood, as the guesthouse is an ode to its local culture.

5. Shouweta Cabin, Kfarhelda

This one is a true holiday escape because the owners made sure to make it a bit more festive for the month of December. Make some toasted marshmallows in their outdoor firepit before cozying up indoors and watching your favorite holiday movies.

6. Les Galets, Batroun

Those with a love for architecture will adore Les Galets, as it offers a unique cultural experience with its triple arch guesthouse. This visit will feel like a trip to your childhood, where your fondest memories of visiting your grandparents’ home in the village are.
