Yavne’el is a stunning yishuv (village) in the lower Galilee valley, around 15 minutes southwest from the city of Tiberias. Yavne’el was founded as an agricultural co-op, or moshav, but today, while you can still see cows and sheep grazing on the hillsides, it is quickly becoming a community of choice for families who want to be near the Kineret (Sea of Galilee) and amenities of the city of Tiberias, yet far away from the crowds, noise and traffic. The yishuv is coming alive not only with new housing and synagogues, but also with shopping and eateries. Gone are the days when Yavne’el residents have to travel to Tiberias for all their shopping needs.

Within Yavne’el are a few different neighborhoods, one of which is Smadar Ilit, nestled in the hills overlooking the yishuv, the Kineret and the mountains of the Galilee Valley. It will remind you of southern California, but for a fraction of the price.

In Smadar Ilit you will find the exquisite villa, with gorgeous interiors, breathtaking views and nothing but luxury to surround you. It will be like living at a vacation spa, all the days of your life. 180 sqm of high-class living space, 5 rooms, master bedroom, swimming pool, jacuzzi and spa, all on a half dunam lot. The price is unbelievable! Only 2.3M NIS. It will sell quickly . Be in touch now to schedule a viewing, galilproperties@gmail.com.

 

Buy Your Home in Northern Israel

Buy Your Home in Northern Israel

RASHBIIf you are ready to buy property in Israel and want the spaciousness of the homes in the Center or on the Coast, but don’t have the budget, then you need to head north. Northern Israel offers home buyers the best prices, giving you much more space for your money than what you can buy in Yerushalayim, Tel Aviv, Ramat Beit Shemesh or other popular destinations in the center and coastal areas of Israel. Check out this featured property.

North of Safed (or Tzfat) is the yishuv of Bar Yochai. It is a gorgeous community, nestled in the northern mountains, within walking distance from RASHBI, the kever of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, for whom the yishuv is named. Just down the road to south is the Holy City of Safed. If you are looking to buy property in Israel, and prefer a place to spread your wings, enjoy nature and crystal clear air, then the yishuv of Bar Yochai could be just the place for you.

yishuvbaryochaiBar Yochai began in 1978, but it remained a sleepy village with only around 20 families for quite some time. In 1996, once the government opened up the yishuv to new home buyers, the population began to grow. Around 140 families make their home in Bar Yochai, a community filled with synagogues, parks, hiking and biking trails, children’s playgrounds, and tons of clean open space where families can hang out together and enjoy the mountain air.

Bein HaZmanim in Tiberias

Vacation in the Galilee, Northern Israel

Summertime at the Sea of Galilee is definitely for the lovers of heat, but that does not seem to slow down the steady stream of tourists from all over the world. Vacation homes in Tiberias are harder to find, especially at affordable rates, but we have great vacation apartments at affordable prices.

For Israelis, the prime vacation time is Ben HaZmanim, the three weeks following Tisha b’Av. Come to the boardwalk during this time and you will find yourself in the midst of a sea of people. During this time, Tiberias becomes the city that doesn’t sleep.

The best way to spend the hot, sunny days is at the beach. The Kineret, Sea of Galilee, is lined with beaches, regular and religious. In the evening, grab a speedboat and whip around the Kineret at record speed. Or, if you prefer something slower, take one of the large boats that float around the Sea of Galilee throughout the night, with food, drinks and space for dancing. The walkway is lined with booths offering everything from unique art to unique toys. There are pony rides for the kids and, of course, lots of food vendors, in addition to the gourmet restaurants.

Tiberias is one of the four Holy cities for two reasons: (1) It is the last place where the Sanhedrin sat and (2) kevrei Tzaddikim–graves of holy people. The most well-known, of course, are Kever Rambam, Rabbi Akiva, Ramchal, and R. Akia, but the ancient cemetery of Tveria holds the graves of many Tzaddikim, including dozens of the students of the Ba’al Shem Tov. Near to the cemetery is the kever of Rachel, wife of Rabbi Akiva.

Check out our vacation page, choose your vacation apartment, and come join us this summer or for the Chaggim or for a Shabbat in the Holy City of Tveria, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.

Here is a vacation apartment that has just come on the market, which will provide you with an unusual vacation experience. You could book a suite in one of the hotels, for much more money,but you will never forget for one moment that you are staying in a hotel. If you come and enjoy this vacation home, you will feel like you are a Tveriani.

This Galil vacation apartment in the Holy City of Tiberias, is nestled within a very special community of synagogues, children’s playgrounds, large parks, all within a short walk to city center and the Kineret beaches and marina. When you are tired of touring the religious and historical sites, and too hot to sit on the beach, you can grab the family and head over on a short stroll to the ranch of sheep, goats, horses and fowl. If you have more energy, there are numerous hiking trails into the mountains, where you can explore caves and find the castle that legend says exists at the top of the mountain.

The vacation apartment has two large bedrooms, dining area, a spacious salon,and a balcony from where you can take in the gorgeous views of the Sea of Galilee (Kineret) and mountains of the Golan. There are two toilets, shower, washing machine, family size refrigerator, and kitchen with gas stove, microwave, tea kettle and ready for Shabbat. For Kosher guests only. Prices vary according to number of guests and length of stay.
