4. Faraya, Lebanon
Why you’ll love it: The small mountain village of Faraya is a great source of pride for the Lebanese people, and rightly so. Less than an hour from Beirut’s warm Mediterranean beaches, the area is home to frosted peaks, world-class ski resorts and unspoilt countryside. In the winter, Faraya can get up to five metres of snow, making it a winter wonderland that’s unmatched in the region.
Don’t miss… a weekend on the slopes at Mzaar Ski Resort.
