nice complex with many facilities like restaurants spa hotel large swimmingpool. verry interesting was the cryo sauna that went down to 180 degrees below 0. Food in the restaurant was good, due to the low rubble rate was the pricing acceptable.

Big territory, amazing views (especially in summer time). There are many cats in Tolstoy's house, a lot of apple/cherry trees and horses. I recommend.
