Ohn-Bar Guesthouse is situated in Amirim, a vegetarian and vegan village, on the hills of Upper Galilee, south of Safed, facing the sea of Galilee, Lake Kinneret and the Golan Heights.
600 meters above sea level, Amirim boasts a typical Israeli mountain climate – arid and hot by day and chilly at night during the summer and in-between seasons, while cold and sometimes snowy in the winter.
Amirim is located on a southern slope protected from northern winds by the hills of Mount Meron, with sun exposure mainly from the east and the south. The graduated terracing of the surroundings feature an enchanting thicket of lush greenery, fruit and decorative trees, and flowers, granting much privacy.
Wooden cabins, wood suites and guest units – each one different with its individual qualities – face the brilliance of the dawn’s sunrise or evening’s glorious scarlet sunsets. In the yard there are seating areas, climbing vines, playground and lounging corners for relaxing, and ample parking space.
Most of the units overlook breathtaking views and open horizons. Our fruit trees – a veritable Garden of Eden orchard – include avocado, walnut, almond, plum, mango, persimmon, olive, lemon, pomelo, orange, grapefruit, figs, grapevines, berries and more, plus our organic vegetable garden. The rear units enjoy patios offering seclusion and shade.
We are happy to host romantic couples and families (who love fresh air, without outdoor barbecues!). Our generous plot with its graduated levels and massive greenery affords privacy between the units, while our family units are separate from the ones for couples.
The Earth is of paramount importance to us, and environmental preservation is ever-present in our concerns, which include vegetarianism / veganism, insulated and shaded building of all our wooden cabins, wood suites and guest units. Most of our units are exposed to the pleasant winter sun, and to the cool breezes of the summer. We use paint and cleaning materials that are environment-friendly, computerized irrigation, utilizing recycled water resources from sinks and jacuzzis, seeing to the recycling of glass and plastic bottles.
