This B&B run by a young couple is a gem. The rooms are bright and clean. The setting reminds me of being in Tuscany (they run a small winery on site), and the breakfasts are outstanding. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Tiberias, but within easy driving distance of sites around the Sea of Galilee.

Bar Barkfar is the perfect breath of fresh air. It was exactly what we were looking for. In truth, it surpassed all our expectations! I cannot recommend staying at Bar bakfar pungently enough.

We stayed in the site for a lovely weekend. Being 6 couples with young children. We loved every minute! The housing, the breakfast and pool were to a high standard and we enjoy it all. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. The children were ecstatic, running around playing. Highly recommended

Great location between the Kineret and Mt. Tabor. Owners were delightful and extremely helpful. Nice surprises such as a relatively large pool overlooking the vineyard, private jacuzzi, and a complimentary bottle of wine with two glasses in the room. Breakfast is excellent. On the downside, rooms and bathrooms are very small and bags overflow to the kitchenette. Overall great stopover...

If you like Israel and if you like Tuscany, this is for you. Barbakfar seems to be like a combination of both. This place is part of moshav and therefore far away from hectic city life. You are surrounded by vineyards, fields and trees and you feel like in paradise. There is outside pool and every villa has it´s own...

This was our second visit to Barbakfar and it was just delightful. We stayed in the villa which was great, with each room having its own hot tub.
