our story

who is mehmoun and why it matters

We are Mehmoun

The word Mehmoun traslates to “guest” in english.

We are a collective motivated by new approach on tourism. We strive to use sustainable tourism in a way that benefits, the host, the larger community and the traveler.

We live in and operate from traditional houses located in towns and villages across Iran. Some of us have inherited the homes from our grandparents, others purchased and restored their house using local masters, materials and methods. 

Going to each of the houses is a different journey.

We want to be your window to cultural heritage of Iran. We invite you to meet city people, villagers and nomads. This is an exceptional opportunity to try many different tastes of Persian cuisines, listen to new forms of music, or be the explorer of an underground city. In short, have a different experience than following the guidebooks and organized tours. We promise you an authentic and honest experience.

We are inviting you to take a safe route and besides staying in each one of our houses, get involved with Iranian culture. Learn folk art and music, get a glimpse of ancient religions of Persia, and witness the current religious ceremonies and rituals. Learn about Iranian culture through toys and folk theater, meet the artisans and masters of traditional craft, and they will teach you how to make your own Persian handicraft. You decided to come to Iran and have a real and memorable experience, we are committed to provide that.

How are we different from other accommodations?

We receive you not as customers, but as guests, and know that many travelers like to experience more than just visiting tourist attractions. You are being hosted by people who are specialized in the field of cultural heritage and sustainable tourism. Take this opportunity to know the local communities, their colorful folklore and their unforgettable stories.
