 1. Irina Tatevosyan’s Farmhouse

 

Near the border with Georgia, Darik (5 km north from Zorakert village) conceals a hidden gem – a B&B with an organic farm, owned by Irina Tatevosyan. A few years ago, this interesting woman launched herself into the agritourism business, offering a chance for tourists to stay and work on her huge farm. Feeding and cleaning horses, milking cows, making bread and cheese, and cooking are some of the daily chores in which you can actively participate. If you are not fond of farming, Irina offers walking tours, horseback riding, camping, cycling, picking medicinal herbs, cultural heritage sightseeing, and riding quadricycles in the winter. Accommodation consists of two double bedrooms and two large, hostel type, tents with a kitchen. Other B&B amenities include a small exhibition with different archaeological artifacts and old domestic objects, a TV in the salon, a mobile phone, 2 bathrooms, laundry service and a separate shower. The Darik farm possesses several natural and cultural assets worth visiting. Besides stunning landscapes and endless green meadows, there is a small lake suitable for summer swimming and fishing. Irina will be proud to guide you to the nearby pre-Christian archaeological site and tell you many legends related to vishap (dragon) stones or khoyakars (ancient ram shaped tombstones). Also, the Tatevosyan family is a successful breeder of Armenian gampr dogs and Van cats.
