Travelers the world over are talking about staycations. Since they may not be able fly overseas in the near future (because of COVID-19 restrictions), they are planning trips closer to home.
Not only does a staycation save you lots of money, it saves you hours spent over planning a trip overseas, the hassle of rushing to the airport, the stress of check-in lines and airport security, endless hours flying with kids, getting new currency and the grumpy effects of jet lag.
1. Get the space all to yourself
No need to worry about others being in your space. This is not a hotel. Villa Tiferet is huge and it’s 100% yours. As you’ll have the entire place to yourselves, it is ideal for large families to relax and unwind. The main house is spacious - it has a huge kosher kitchen, a large dining room that can seat 14, a living room plus library. Outdoors, there’s two courtyards and a large rooftop. No need to leave this sanctuary!
2. Enjoy family bonding
Villa Tiferet is so easy for families. For families with babies and small children, we have a portacrib, a high chair and a baby bath. There are board games and children’s books plus Apple TV with hundreds of movies. With its soaring ceilings, cozy reading nooks and the spacious courtyards, the villa is, in itself, a destination kids just love.
A Shabbat in Tzfat is magical. In times of Coronavirus, even if you decide to stay put and not venture out to shul, the villa is a gem. Daven on the rooftop as the sun sets behind the mountains, then enjoy a Shabbos meal in the majestic dining room. We offer table cloths, Shabbat candles, kiddush cup, challah board and cover, siddurim and bentchers. On Shabbat day, relax in the sunny courtyard or lie on the rooftop with a book, play games with your children and simply relax. To bring out your tranquil Shabbat, there is a Havdalah set.
4. Feels like home away from home
No need to pack anything other than clothes and a toothbrush. We have it all. From a fully-stocked kitchen to towels and toiletries, this is just like home. Or, maybe more. A state-of the-art kosher kitchen features two prepping areas (meat and dairy), two ovens (meat and dairy), two sinks (meat and dairy), two dishwashers (meat and dairy) plus two sets of dishes and utensils. There are games for kids, books and siddurim for you to use.
5. Explore Tzfat
No need to hire a guide - just walk out the front gate and explore. Villa Tiferet is in the heart of the Artists’ Quarter, minutes from the shops of Rehov Yerushalayim. You can easily walk to the galleries and old shuls in Zefat. So bring a camera, a pair of walking shoes and a sense of adventure. The best way to see Tzfat is to meander, stop to appreciate the breathtaking views and venture down the hidden alleyways.
