I am a free spirited artist who was attracted to the quaint city of artists and mystics, otherwise known as Safed. Besides my love of entertaining and running the tzimmer I am an artist whose favorite activity is to stroll the ancient alleyways and find new unexplored territory to photograph. Our family lives next door so we are available to help you make the most out of your stay here.
