We have an interesting accommodation to offer - the hotel (that is more of a modern dacha type) is located near the village of Dvoryaninovo. There is a pond and the Skniga River that flows into the Oka, the hoel is surrounded with wide fields and forests full of mushrooms and berries during the season. In the living room you can chat with guests, get to know each other, play board games or just relax, read and drink some tea. In the dining room, movie screenings on the projector and summer parties are often arranged.
