Far exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were very comfortable and serene. Once we arrived in the afternoon we didn’t leave until late morning the next day. Oleg and Sasha provided everything we could want. A delicious vegan dinner was served, including wine and the tastiest chocolate fondue with fruit for dessert. Bikes and fishing were available and at night a bon fire was made. Breakfast was just as delicious as the dinner. And there was no shortage of interesting stories if you wanted. Very memorable stay and we look forward to returning.
