Kibbutz Moran Country Lodging is a perfect place for independent travellers or groups touring the Galilee.
The accommodation is in one-story cabins - or zimmers -surrounded by grass and trees, each with a separate entrance and a patio where you can sit outside. Read on to see why this is one of our family's favourites ...
There are 28 rooms - some are double rooms and others are slightly larger family rooms with extra beds for children - all with air-conditioning, cable TV and a bathroom with a shower.
You will be sure to get a friendly welcome from Yossi and Ofir who run the zimmers. The rooms are clean and aesthetic and have everything you need including a fridge, microwave and utensils for making tea and coffee.
The rates are reasonable and include breakfast, and you get good value for your money. If you travel mid-week you can take advantage of the cheaper rates.
Like everywhere else, in the summer you have to pay high season prices and there is no cheap mid-week rate, but you get free entrance to the beautiful kibbutz swimming pool.
Here you have the best of both worlds - the peace and quiet of the rural surroundings of the kibbutz, but with easy access from the main Akko-Karmiel road (route 85).
There are a variety of pleasant hikes and walks in the unspoilt countryside around the Kibbutz - Farod Stream, Zalmon Stream and Amud stream, to name a few. You can get information and help with organising tours in the area from the staff.
Kibbutz Moran is a small rural settlement which was founded in 1977. It's named after the Viburnum plant (Moran, in Hebrew) which grows wild in the area. They have recently added a private housing estate on part of the land.
There's a mini-market near the zimmers where you can buy groceries and provisions, a bakery where you can buy fresh bread and at the weekends, there's a pub which serves speciality beers in the evening.
The outdoor swimming pool is open from the end of May until September.
They also cater for weddings, events and celebrations (with kosher food).

Kibbutzim today are very different to how they were in the early 1900s. Tourism has become a big industry for many of them.

Armon and Sara's Place is a new zimmer in Kfar Hananya, just outside Karmiel - a great place to chill out, with amazing views over the Galilee hills.

Kibbutz Inbar's claim to fame is that it's the smallest kibbutz in Israel - just four families - who all help to run the guest house.
