Location and Approach

Moshav Shekef is situated just an hour away from Tel Aviv. This top-hill residenceis bordered with greeneries as if to protect it from all the hustles and bustles of the city-life. It overlooks a panoramic view which keeps changing over the year with its beauty unadulterated. Take directions over the phone; the staffs are immensely helpful and courteous and you won’t get any trouble finding the spot. But it’s very hard to decide which season to come over here, because a beautiful maiden is always beautiful, whatever her dress may be. So some more seductions await you:

  • The summer: Unguarded view of the vineyards on your left with the herds of cows grazing on the meadows.
  • The autumn: This is the season of migratory birds who fly all the way from Europe and Africa to find refuge in the warmth of mother Nature.
  • The winter: You may observe deer here and there. Vineyards rest in this season, but the greenery is far from fading; on the other hand this is the time when many season flowers start to blossom.
  • The spring: The love is really in the air with all the colors pouring in at the same time, landscapes look like the vibrant paintings of Van Gogh with tulips and primroses all around inviting you to a gay galore!
