Abdelli is a village that dates back several hundred years. The village suffered from famine and high mortality, as well as a mass exodus, together with all its neighbours during the first Ottoman war. As a result, the old village fell into disrepair and the terraces were rebuilt by generations of human labour.
Located at the top of a hill in the Caza of Batroun, Abdelli Terraces offer views of picturesque villages and the Mediterranean Sea.
Abdelli terraces is a guest house and restaurant that stands out for its holistic perspective. While staying at the "terraces," the owners, Najla & Nabil, organized activities to promote the wellbeing of the body and mind all in one place.
Najla is a psychologist with years of experience in the United States and Vietnam as a life coach and yoga therapist. She also has a passion for organic cooking and sharing ingredients that aid in therapeutic qualities with her guests.
Neurosurgeon Nabil recently retired after devoting himself for over 40 years of experience and research on debate of ideas. He taught philosophy at the faculty of medicine and wrote his thesis on evolutionary thought.
Over time, Nabil discovered that more than half of his chronic back pain patients suffered from existential malaise which is more than a physical disease. At his request, a stress management centre was established at the hospital with founder Najla, resulting in positive results amongst patients. The idea of hosting a holistic activity in an environment of nature, serenity, and beauty outside the hospital environment then came to life through Abdelli Terraces.
By staying at Abdelli Terraces, you will be able to enjoy the spectacular view, the local cuisine, and the activities around the estate or in the surrounding areas. A majority of the staff employed for the operation of the estate is made up of young students from neighbouring villages. Village housewives were trained to hone their already impressive culinary skills.
You are invited to live differently by disconnecting from the chaotic everyday life, seeking meaning in your existence. This is the goal that the doctor and the life coach set for themselves.
