Get the chance to experience one of the oldest houses in Lebanon!!
This charming house was built in the 19th century in Zahlé, Lebanon by the Aleppo Basilian Monks Of The Roman Catholics to serve as a clergy house. With its thick walls made of mud and hay, and its strong roof of poplar tree trunks, mud, and hay, this parsonage survived World War I, World War II, the 1956 earthquake, and the Lebanese War. It keeps the temperature warm during winter and cool during summer. The house overlooks the city with 5 stunning arches. (see picture)
In family hands for more than 75 years, this charming house was renovated during the hardest time Lebanon had ever faced. The construction works started in 2019 along with the beginning of the Lebanese Revolution, and the economic crisis, which continued during the Covid-19 pandemic until the Beirut port explosion on August 4th, 2020 causing at least 218 deaths, 7,000 injuries, and US$15 billion in property damage, as well as leaving an estimated 300,000 people homeless. But through all these hard times, the house was accomplished with consistency, faith, and love and came back to life on August 2020.
