Live like a hobbit at this quirky Armenian guest house

Armenia, Dilijan
November 07, 2019 at 13:07 GMT +00:00 · Published

An unusual guest house has recently opened its doors for visitors in the resort town of Dilijan in northeastern Armenia.

The resort’s design draws its inspiration from British author J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit, with iconic round doors and grass-covered roofs.

As explained by owner of the hobbit complex, Artavadz Vanyan, the idea was to “do something unusual, more interesting for people.”

Vanyan said that the resort has been fully booked since its opening three months ago.

”We are always fully booked. Our aim is to do something good for our guests so they would leave satisfied.”

If hobbits were ever to leave their hillside abodes in the Middle-earth and decide to move to the Caucasus, Armenia’s hobbit village would surely be their home away from home.
