• Family countryside holiday

This experience takes you to a small family-owned guesthouse only 2, 5 hrs outside Kiev. It is owned and managed by Mykola and Iryna who creates a calm and welcoming atmosphere. You are away from the bustling city and in the middle of true Ukrainian countryside.

There are four wooden guesthouses, with a large common area, a playground, sauna, outdoor dining area, fruit and berry garden, beehives, windmill, and a replica of 19th century traditional rural house. Sit outdoors, unwind and enjoy th etraditional homemade dinner, or lit up the barbeque.

Close by the guesthouse you will find Ichnyansky National Park or Kachanivka National Park. Both offer great views and relaxing walks in the lush greenery. In Ichnyansky National Park enjoy the river for a swim or a boatride.

The kids will love a visit to the local farm! Here they will meet the farmer, the goats and taste their homemade cheese. A great opportunity for kids to learn more about where food comes from! Another favourite among the children is to make the traditional Ukrainian handicraft. Try egg-painting or doll-making!

You will feel that you went back in time to when the life was simple, food was good, and days were surrounded by the natural world. Eat delicious home-grown food, rest and rejuvenate while the kids can play safely in the big garden.
