25 minutes away from Beirut, nested in a natural pine tree grove, “Longue Vie” residence is a sun filled, spacious and pleasant care home with a unique view of the coast from Beirut to Jounieh. Founded by Louis M. Gemayel in 1987, it is still nowadays a highly thought after care home.
We are located between the villages of Broumana and Bickfaya in the Metn region, close to many commodities such as hospitals, shopping centers, restaurants, pharmacies and hotels among which Zenotel, a boutique hotel focusing on wellness and offering programs of healthcare, relaxation, and detox.Our Lebanese architecture, with its white stone and red tiled roofs in a green setting makes the site an attractive, peaceful, and unique destination for any person regardless of their physical or psychological condition. The mild climate and the clean air of this still wooded area are historically known as well as its cicadas’ sound so typical of the Lebanese mountains.
We are a secular nonprofit private association recognized by the government since 1987.
