Hiking Destination. Reconnect with Nature. Live like a Local.

Old village house renovated in 2019 with modern comforts. The house is located in a small mountain village and has easy access to various hiking trails.

The property includes this attic and two rooms on the lower floor. Common areas include the terrace (which doubles as "dining room") and the garden.

Three meals per day (breakfast, picnic lunch and dinner) are included in the price and prepared in the house by our cook.

Guest access
The attic (with en suite bathroom) will be for the guests' exclusive access and use. The terrace and the garden are shared spaces. The kitchen is not for the guests' use.

Other things to note
Gomk is a tiny, remote (and lovely) village, this is its charm but do not expect any such a thing as a big city life. There are no bars, restaurants and shops in the village, no pharmacy, no post office and no ATM. Be prepared to go back to nature!

IMPORTANT: the attic is accessible by stairs that are not suitable for children and people with disabilities. We are planning to change this, but till then, please book this only if you are relatively fit and you have no children below the age of 10 travelling with you.

Whatever you need, be it medicines, hygiene products, a special bottle of champagne or a battery charger, think about it and bring it along. As “emergencies” happen, don’t worry too much, the town of Vayk is 20 minutes away and all the basics are available there.

Fruit, veg, dairy and eggs are true 0 Km food, produced by our neighbours and cooked for you by our cook Breakfast includes the usual suspects (tea, coffee, bread, butter, jam etc.) and a generally egg based, dish every day. Lunch is a picnic (you will be out and about exploring the mountains) and dinner is a different dish every day with accompaniments such as bread, pickles, veg, fruit as per local tradition, in a fusion Armenian, Mediterranean style. Meals are at fixed times. We can’t cook à la carte and we are unable to accommodate major dietary issues.

If you’re vegetarian you should be fine. If you’re vegan, there will be plenty of fruit and veg but the menu will not work. The meat is not halal. Unfortunately our kitchen, like most household kitchens, does not guarantee the avoidance of cross contamination. If you have severe food allergies or are celiac please contact us.

You can bring along our favourite wine or spirit, otherwise you can taste and buy great Armenian wines in Areni. And we can always get you a beer. Bring cash for payments if required.

From time to time, there are power and water cuts, nothing to worry about: it usually gets sorted rather quickly. There is no A/C in the house. The evenings are nice and cool in the summer so, just in case, take something warm with you.

There is no wi-fi in the house. We recommend buying an Armenian SIM Card at Yerevan airport when you land (or in the city). VivaCell-MTS has cheap packages, ideal for tourists, and is the only provider with good coverage in the village. The last time we checked, a 10GB package with local minutes was $ 6. Do not expect 4G but internet is good enough to catch up with family and friends and browse social media.

The people in the village generally do not speak English. We will provide you with a basic phrase book in Armenian: if we managed in a few months to learn enough Armenian to buy and renovate a house, you will learn how to ask for a glass of water in no time! Everyone will be happy to practise with you. For more complex issues, our coordinator (who speaks good English) will be one WhatsApp message away.

Download the HikeArmenia App on your phone and start planning! Don’t forget to review the App, it was developed by friends of ours, who also marked and maintain the trails as part of the activities of a great local charity.

Gomk, Vayots Dzor Province, Armenia

Gomk is officially part of the Transcaucasian Hiking Trail, a wide-reaching network that takes hikers to some of the remotest corners of the Caucasus. From Georgia, through Armenia down to Azerbaijan. Four of the most popular trails start from our neighbourhood. Our guides can come with you, or you can just use the Hike Armenia App and enjoy the hike with your friends. Arman can always pick you up from a point accessible via car if you get tired or need assistance.
