About the Homestay
This place is not a simple accommodation where you spend your nights. You will be immersed into Persian culture through cultural events and activities. We are two passionate Iranians who have decided to make Persian culture more known to foreigners. We live in the house. We are super interested in history, literature, cinema, and any sort of cultural exchanges even culinary exchanges ;) We will help you discover the cultural capital of Iran, Shiraz also known as the city of roses and nightingales. This city is the cradle of Persian civilization and also the birthplace of the pillars of Persian poetry. We also organize tours to Persepolis, Pasargadea, and Necropolis which are the most important historical sites in Iran. There are alao tours in the city center amd a very special one to the mausoleum of the poets, Hafez and Sa'adi. The city is crowded with beautiful gardens, and you will have the chance to be accompanied by our professional and passionate guides to show you around the city.
You will stay in a big and cpnfortable appartment with two private rooms, one double and one triple. The doubleroom has got a private bathroom. The place is extremely central in the heart of the historical center, right in front of Karim Khan Citadel and 5 minutes from the big Vakil bazar on foot. There is a very big living room where guests can relax and chat. There is also a cummunal kithecn where guests can use whenever they want. The staff speak perfect English, Spanish and French.

Very well situated, right next to the Citadel. Pourya and Rola are super welcoming and their room is very confortable and clean. They also organise tours to persepolis and necropolis that are really interesting.
Nous sommes restés 2 nuits chez Pourya et Rolla dans leur superbe coloc. L'appartement est vraiment cosy et idéalement situé près de la citadelle Karim Khan et de la place Vakil.
Féru de littérature et d'histoire, Pourya nous a partagé ses conseils de lecture et anecdotes ce fut passionnant. D'autant plus qu'il fut notre guide durant une escapade à Persepolis et Nécropolis durant notre deuxième journée à Shiraz.
Détail important, Pourya maitrise parfaitement le français et propose ses visites guidées dans la langue de Molière.
Ce fut un réel plaisir, encore merci !
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Staying with Pourya and his friend Rola is like visiting your friends in Iran. They will show you Iran from the insight of a local, and not just host you, but making you live the country and city, food, traditions... We leaved their house as friends more that guests. Best experience we've ever had in any kind of accommodation. Thank you for all the time and efforts! Regards from your Spanish friends!
Couldn't find a better way to jump into this country and this culture than with Pourya & Rolla !
Stayed there 3 days ! Amazing guys, great house and a warm welcoming.
Bedding & house are clean, delicious breakfast and a special thanks for your kindness.
I've also did a tour of Persepolis with Pourya ! Captivating, funny and mind-blowing experience.
I highly recommend those Hosts.
(I swear I'm not payed to write this review ! hahah see for yourself and you will see ! :) )
This was our best homestay in Iran for sure. Pourya and his buddy Rola are great guys, they both speaks perfectly english and do great tours in Persepolis. They also knows a lot of informations about Shiraz. We became a good friends and I can only recommend theirs apartment in the very center of Shiraz. Best greetings.
Pourya, and his roommate Rola, are perfect hosts !
We had an excellent stay at Pourya 's place. It's a pleasure to speak with him and he is really nice, helpful.. We also had a tour at Persepolis with him, it was passionnate ! We strongly recommand this place !
