Beino is quite famous for its beautiful villas constructed from massive limestone blocks and roofed with red bricks. It is nestled at the foothills of the Northern Lebanese Mountain chain better known as Qammoua.


Beino is also known for its beautiful Jasmine and Rose gardens, abundant fruit trees like pomegranate, olive groves, citrus fruits, apricots, almonds, grapes, apples, figs, many features, landmarks and great people. It is studded with oak and pine trees; some of them age 400 years. The oldest ones surround the village cemetery located on top of Deir Mar Sarkiss.


Beino was under Ottoman Rule; all her capable young men were taken to serve the Turkish army (Safar Barlek). Some died and others made their way back to the village.

Don’t miss the migrating birds that pass above the motel each season so you can experience a unique bird watching in the region.
