The Armenian eco-village represents a unique choice of stylish village dwellings from Armenian tuff stone houses to charming log cabins and modern units. Although all houses are fully equipped with modern gadgets for your comfort and ease, you’ll find it more interesting to spend the day outside, in the splendid surroundings of a resort. It is a fantastic place where you and your family can see a great variety of domestic animals, plants and trees.
You can easily plan your time here not only admiring the beauty of the nature, but also attending and viewing such activities as Lavash baking (Armenian bread), butter, yogurt, wine, and pastry making in old Armenian traditional ways.
