“If there is somewhere that I can feel so homy other than my real home, that would be Fantan farm. Believe in me, after travelling within Europe endlessly for 2 years, this is the most memorable stay I have ever had(and I am Glad that I have found it before the end of my mega holiday). Valhagn and his family are fantastic. They are so warm-hearted and welcome me with so much of food and love. Everything that you find on the table are directly coming from the farm and truly tasty. They also have so much interesting things to do in the farm. Things like milking, watching the stars and just simply chilling out. Tours are also available here, with reasonable price. Highly highly recommended, if you need a genuine Armenian household experience. You will love it so much!”
Наш коттедж находится в частном квартале в Цахкадзоре, у леса, близко канатной дороге. Всего 900 метров. Our cottage is in private block of houses in the forest, about 800 meters far from the rope way. We have all the necessaries you need for your stay in Tsakhkadzor.
“Everything was great! At the beginning, the owner personally met at the airport and on the way he brought us to the exchange office with a favorable rate and a supermarket in Yerevan. He told about the neighborhood on the way, and at the entrance, about Tsakhkadzor itself: showed a bank, shops and cafes. The house is cozy, corresponds to the pictures and description (except the fireplace). Clean, warm and comfortable. It was nice that there is a portable Wi-Fi (on the battery), so you could take it with you to the mountain all day and don’t need to buy a local sim card. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The cottage settlement itself is very cozy and quiet, plus a very convenient location - close to the mountain (900 m) and to the city center (900 m). We went by taxi for 1000 drams (130 rubles), and walked back from the mountain on foot. Nearby there are two of the best restaurants in the city (Burmunk and The Spot), so there was no need to go far for dinner. In general, we were very pleased and if possible we will come again.”
Именно сюда приехал бы Хемингуэй, чтобы описать горы, тишину и теплоту людей. Именно сюда приехал бы Кафка и написал бы роман об уединении и гармонии, переплетенной с сюрреалистичной картинкой мира природы. Ну и вы, приезжайте! Очень ждем! Здесь есть и лыжная трасса, и 50 метровый бассейн, и заповедник с оленями, и старинный храм, и бесконечные горы, которые красивы в любое время года. Квартира сделана для души, гармонии и отдыха. Вы это почувствуете с первой же минуты. Добро пожаловать!
“We rested in Bella’s apartment for 2 weeks. In general - I liked the apartment very much. Stylish, furniture, kitchen, bathroom in excellent condition. The apartment is very comfortable! The view from the window to the mountains! The apartment has everything you need: a lot of dishes for all occasions, a washing machine, a balcony, towels, bedding, an iron, a folding clothes dryer, cleaning products, slippers, there are even skewers and firewood) In general, everything is thought out to the smallest detail! Pleased with the presence of board games) We arrived very early in the morning and Bella allowed us to check in immediately, because before us the apartment was free. The only thing we did not specify is the availability of the Internet. The description says "pocket wifi" and for some reason I thought that it means that there will be a portable set-top box with Internet access. In fact - there is no Internet at all in the house. But I had a local SIM card with the Internet, it was enough for me, but I do not watch TV. Bella, thank you very much for such an apartment! We rested in comfort.”
