The village of Saifi in Beirut

Are you familiar with Beirut's Arts District? A rather chic residential neighborhood located on the south-eastern outskirts of the city center, and which bears the pretty name of Saifi. Bordered to the south by Charles Debbas Street, to the north by Gouraud Street, to the west by Ariss & Kanaani Street and to the east by George Street, the village of Saifi is a neighborhood that is enriched by its post-war history. Entirely rebuilt since then, it attracts the curiosity of many visitors from all over the world...including you.

The Village of Saifi takes its name from the Arabic word "summer", the beautiful season to discover the country in all its splendour. Built at the end of the 1990s, it is part of one of Solidere's pilot residential projects.

At first glance, this village looks very much like a small semi-private complex nestled in the heart of Beirut, with its particularly well-kept urban developments.

The village of Saifi is nicknamed Quartier des Arts thanks to its numerous art galleries, craft shops, antique shops and specialized boutiques.

But this district also knows a real animation every Saturday morning thanks to the small shops of the farmers who come to sell their fresh organic products.

You will also find other products in Souk el Tayeb, another small and lively square in the village.

Hamra has a new Beit, and the best part of it? This lovely unexpected garden in the middle of the most popular streets of the area! Escape the hustle bustle of Hamra by walking in and enjoying a delicious meal from the @tawlet menu, any time of the day. And if you ever decide to sleep in one of the 50s style rooms, you get to enjoy this breakfast with the best Mediterranean flavors (still lingering in my mouth)!!!! Mabrouk @beitsoukeltayeb @kamalmouzawak for this latest addition to the Beit family. Hamra just got a little bit greener and tastier! 💚 (more stories about Beit el Hamra in my highlights) #beitelhamra #guesthouses #lebanon #notesofatraveler . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #beirut #hamra #bedandbreakfast #maisondhote #liban #soukeltayeb #breakfast #food #lebanesecuisine #hospitality #foodporn #mangerlibanais #travellebanon #lebanontourism #staycation #travelblog #travelgram #dametraveler #girlsthatwander #photography #vsco #morning #coffee #darlingescapes #livelovelebanon #instalebanon
