Located a mile north of the Sea of Galilee, with sweeping vistas of the lake, this is one of Israel’s hidden secrets: a relaxing retreat of rustic cabins, and more expensive cottages and suites with separate bedrooms (many with kitchenettes and Jacuzzis), all set among gardens. Vered HaGalil is famous for its beautiful horses and riding programs (open to non-guests). A short drive or hike takes you to the fascinating ruins of Korazim, a Roman-era Jewish village abandoned in early Islamic times, with many of its houses still standing, and with an impressive synagogue adorned with finely carved details in stone as the town’s centerpiece. The staff offers personal, helpful attention; a pool and a country-style restaurant make this a good base to come home to after a day’s touring. The restaurant, opened in 2013, features a star chef, but does not carry kosher certification; however, breakfasts are composed of dairy kosher products, on kosher kitchenware.
