Villa Tiferet is a dream destination for many reasons. Amir and Nicole are thoughtful and gracious hosts. They are available to answer all questions and warmly facilitated our welcome on the day that we arrived.
The home is nothing short of breathtaking. It is a beautifully restored villa with charming decor. From the lovely courtyard to the roof top with the magnificent view of Tzfat, it is an ideal vacation spot.There was more than enough room for our family of seven to sleep and eat comfortably. The bedrooms are large and the beds are superb. The kitchen and dining area are spacious and every single thing that you might need to cook a gourmet meal is available for your use. Tzfat is an excellent location for a trip to the North of Israel. We just completed a busy and fun filled tour through the Galil and Golan and wherever we ended our day, it was a reasonable distance away from Tzfat and therefore an easy return in the evening. In addition, there are many places to eat on the main street in Tzfat (Which is a five minute walk from the villa) that are open late at night and that makes catching dinner at any hour a possibility. Villa Tiferet is perfect for a relaxing and rejuvenating trip. It is not a five star destination- it a five hundred star destination!!
