The Farmhouse experience combines food, wine, wellness, and history into the finest getaway in Israel. We invite you to complement your stay with an exclusive dinner, wine tasting, private fitness classes, massage therapy, and exploration of the surrounding nature.
Farm-to-Table Exclusive Dinners
Join us in the dining room for the ultimate Farmhouse experience – a culinary journey paired with our Bat Shlomo Vineyards wines. Our renowned chef uses only the freshest local fish, cheeses, vegetables, fruits, spices, and herbs from our garden to create a multi-course tasting-menu that highlights the quality of the local ingredients and the land and sea from which they come. Each menu is customized to your taste and must be reserved before your stay.
A stay at The Farmhouse would not be complete without a tasting of our Bat Shlomo Vineyards wines. The tasting experience begins with a stroll along Bat Shlomo’s original main street, where we lookout onto our vineyards, organic garden, and the beautiful Hurshan nature reserve and Dalya River. It is followed by tasting in the Bat Shlomo Vineyards’ tasting room and explanation of our original Israeli art collection. The experience includes a selection of our white, rosé, and red wines paired with local bread, cheeses, fresh vegetables (Farm to Table), and other appetizers prepared by our chef. While tasting, you will learn more about the history of The Farmhouse, the winemaking process, and what makes our wines so unique.

Breakfast is complimentary with your stay and is served in the main house dining room, overlooking the pool. Our freshly prepared breakfast can be served from 9:00am and includes a selection of fruits and vegetables, local cheeses, yogurt, and more.

Located on Israel’s Mediterranean coast, Caesarea is an ancient port city with breathtaking views and historical sites:
Caesarea National Park
Caesarea Antiquities National Park features unique architectural structures from the city’s 2,300 year history. The 500 dunam site contains ruins dating from the Hellenistic period (3rd century BC) to the Crusades (12th century), when Caesarea served as an important port in the Mediterranean. Originally, Caesarea was a gift from Augustus to King Herod, who built a massive port, a hippodrome, bathhouses, and temples. During the Byzantine period, Caesarea was a central Christian center that housed the Church Fathers. During the Crusades, the walls and gates of the city were closely guarded, until the Mamluk conquest in the 13th century. In the port area, there are a number of cafes and restaurants.

The two Ralli Museums in Caesarea were established by the Harry Recanati Fund to exhibit and promote contemporary Latin American art. Together with the three other Ralli Museums in Uraguay, Chile, and Spain, the museums exhibit some of the most important Latin American art collections in the world, including classical, surrealist, and modern works.
