Tucked away down a small, winding road amid the pine forests of Bkassine is a rustic home from home, Lebanon's revamped getaway spot for those who fancy something a little more adventurous than lounging on a beach.La Maison de la Foret, a rustic eco-site located in the Jezzine area of the Chouf mountains, reopened its doors in recent weeks to reveal a host of new additions. Now under new management, the four cozy, ski-chalet style wooden cabins have been renovated and joined by 11 new ones. Each bungalow sleeps between two and six people, boasting a miniature kitchen and a terrace with views of the forest. Most exciting for Lebanon's food fanatics is the restaurant, the latest branch of Tawlet, Kamal Mouzawak's stable of restaurants created to highlight local traditions, produce and home cuisine.The building has been constructed around the trees, and the mottled trunk of an enormous pine pushes its way up through the tiled floor near the kitchen.Outside, round wooden tables adorn a wooden terrace, through which further trees grow, while a second al fresco dining area overlooks the lower slopes of the forest and the mountains beyond.
