If you are travelling through Siberia, Eastories Farm is not to be missed. It is an extraordinary village, breathtaking scenery and authentic in its cluster of old and new wooden houses. Eastories farm is a working farm. You will literally be in the farm environment. In autumn, this was not the picturesque greenery of a European farm, but the spare practicality of a farm in a part of the world with a harsh climate. You will share the outside toilet and be treated to the wood fired sauna in the evening. If you choose the family will cater for you. What catering! Simple, plentiful farm food. Each meal was a delight. In Autumn, the main activity was walking… to the lake, in the mountains.
I would have loved to have been there in warmer weather for a swim in the pristine waters of the lake. Or in winter to walk on the frozen lake and river. But the colours of Autumn were beautiful, the sky crystal blue, and the weather conducive to walking for hours. Don’t miss this opportunity if you have the chance. Much more than just an AirBNB, its the opportunity to experience a remarkable lifestyle in a magic place.
