village Pogorelovo

**There's in Pogorelovo**, now preserved, thanks to its overseer. It is in the depths and is hidden from the human eye on the place of once big and rich village. Until now, the buildings and yards of the village are practically not preserved. The inhabitants are long gone. There is no electricity and no water supply. There are no roads or bridges. There's a teremok hidden away from the villages. It's a hard way to get there and walking. And only with the help of off-road and tractor equipment there is a unique opportunity to see the inexpressible beauty of decoration of an ancient architectural structure. The road to the tower runs through the cleanest and wildest places. Dear of course in the modern sense it is hard to call it. In some places the way goes through a narrow and dark forest tunnel, in some places along the bog gate, not without water and mud tracks, as well as deep ditches. Closer to lunchtime, there will be an overgrowing glade and it is not immediately possible to see the remains of houses among the grass and shrubs. Arrival in the village of Pogorelovo. ** Outdoor picnic lunch is organized after the sightseeing program **

Terem Astashovo

The old house of a wealthy peasant with a tragic history and happy outcome until recently was hopelessly destroyed under the wrath of nature and weather. Tree shoots literally survived it every year. Thanks to people who are not indifferent, the temple is transformed and restored in its decoration. Nowadays it is a complex with an art hotel, its museum and Russian spirit. The museum is here in every corner.

Mini-hotel Forest Terme Astashovo

The strongest impression of our guests is the opportunity to live "in a museum" while enjoying all the benefits of civilization. The interiors of the historical house reproduce the atmosphere of the end of XIX century. Not only the bedrooms (rooms), but also the front living room, summer verandahs, children's room, study, winter garden in a bay window - all of them are at the disposal of our guests. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served in a spacious human room, near the Russian stove. **Was waiting for an evening dinner at the Russian stove with local treats **
