Beit Al Karmeh, from the Dalia Association, is a guest house, that is located in the middle of a cluster of Ottoman-era buildings in the old city of Kufr Aqab. During your visit to the place, you can go back in time and explore how our grandmothers and grandfathers lived in these houses. Beit Al Karmeh includes a community kitchen, meeting rooms, and co-working space, in addition to two guestrooms. It is equipped with the latest devices to receive your meeting and workshops and to serve as a platform for you to launch your entrepreneurial projects.
