Want to have it all? The Nesvijskaya estate deserves to be in the top of the best country estates in Belarus, and now we will tell you why.
Address. Minsk region, Nesvizh city, 6 Kosciuszko Street.
Comfort. The rest here is for a company of up to 15 people. For this purpose, the two-storey mansion has everything you need and then some: for an affordable price, you get the opportunity to relax in one of the most picturesque places in Belarus, not far from the luxurious Nesvizh Palace. And one of the most beautiful castles in Belarus — Mir — is just 30 kilometers away. Isn't this great?
Cuisine. Cook your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen, if you want, or order breakfast and dinner from the owners. Moreover, we recommend large and cheerful companies using the barbecue set and frying flavorful meat.
- Entertainments. In summer — badminton and volleyball, fishing and songs around the campfire, in winter — skiing and walking around the beautiful beyond description territory. There is something to do all year round!
VETLIVA’s advice: do you still think Belarusian cuisine is limited to draniki and kalduny, so you don't expect anything different? It's a high time to study our gastro tour and make sure that the Belarusian national cuisine will give a head start to many other foreign opponents.
The place with a poetic name, which will be definitely enjoyed by the fans of the Game of Thrones series, and beckons all lovers of out-of-town recreation.
Address. Mogilev region, Belynichsky district, Yagodka farming, 5 Belorusskaya Street.
Comfort. The recreation here is intended for small companies of up to 5 people. If you’re an eco-movement supporter, then you have chosen the right place. The log house is completely made of natural materials. Just imagine what a pleasure it is to get warm on a real stove-heater on a rainy day!
Cuisine. Fragrant, melting in the mouth dishes of Belarusian cuisine, cooked in the oven — sounds so yummy that you probably want to drop everything and ride off to the Starki estate! Machanka, jellied minced meat (kholodec), homemade sausage, crispy pickles…Perhaps we will stop here, so as not to cause you a hunger attack.
Entertainments. A wood-burning sauna is a wonderful way to relax and take a good steam bath. Since the Neroplya River runs nearby, you can rent boats or kayaks and make a real rafting trip on it. You can also go fishing here and try to get a trophy, and let alone walking through the scenic location and enjoying the beautiful nature of the Mogilev region!

A family house is a great place for 5-6 people to relax.
A bathhouse where you can take a steam and spend a night.
A Venetian-style house for one-on-one romantic weekends.
VETLIVA’s advice: by the way, did you know that estates are a top option for organizing a wedding? And the Klevoe Mestechko is the best proof of that! It has everything you need to celebrate the most important day of your life: Osipovichi reservoir nearby, a spacious territory that can easily accommodate all your guests — sounds really cool, we think!
Cuisine. What could be better than to immediately cook fresh fish? Moreover, there is a fully equipped kitchen and a grill at your service. Walleye barbecue, grilled pike, crucian carp, baked with sour cream and vegetables — along with fishing rods, you will need to uncover your culinary skills to taste the freshest fish.
Entertainments. There is something to do even for those who are far from fishing tricks. Children will splash in the swimming pool in summer or find other activities at the playground at other times of the year. Meanwhile, adults will be able to take a steam in the bathhouse, ride a boat and catamaran along the reservoir, pick berries or mushrooms in the fall, ride a bike and even arrange a football tournament!
The English for “Bobrovaya Hata” is “The Beavers House”. Beavers, of course, do not live here but there is always a place for tight-knit companies.
Address: Vitebsk region, Rossonsky district, Ukleenka village, 5 Sosnovy Lane.
Comfort. Space and eco-style — that's what conquers Bobrovaya Hata when you first cross its threshold. The estate is built from century-old pine wood, and the interior is dominated mainly by natural colors and shades. With the abundance of ceramics and forged interior items, wood, comfortable furniture — you couldn't find a better place than this to simply enjoy your holiday. For a confident stay here, all necessary appliances and electrical equipment are offered. And, of course, the rooms have Wi-Fi, so you can easily go to your favorite social network or read the news.

Entertainments. All at once — this is the motto of Bobrovaya Hata. In summer, you can do sphering (walking on the surface of the lake inside an inflatable ball), ride on catamarans, remember your childhood and jump on a trampoline, and even arrange a real laser tag tournament. And this is not to mention traditional fishing, quiet hunting for mushrooms and berries, beach volleyball and football, a unique bath with honey and beer, and other activities. You have an unfortunate excess of winter and summer entertainments!
Vacation in Belarus like in the Alps? Well... yes! Especially if you choose Chalet Guest House in Borisov as a place to stay.

And, of course, you can always pass the evening in the gazebo with a fireplace and barbecue area, because there is nothing more pleasant than the cozy wood crackling and the aroma of meat roasting on the coals.
VETLIVA’s advice: do not want to go far from the city, and thoughts about barbecue do not give you peace of mind? Then our selection of locations designed for this purpose will definitely come in handy!
Entertainments. Well, bellies are filled, but no one canceled any other pastime! Guests can enjoy billiards, a dip in the Russian font, a steam bath, or a foosball match here as well. By the way, there is even a separate suite for newlyweds — a great option for those who have just tied the knot.
Another option for a comfortable accommodation on the Naroch is offered by the owners of cottages with an interesting name — Antonisberg.
Address: Minsk region, Naroch resort village, 25 and 27 Naberejnaya Street.

Cuisine. Kitchen furniture and all necessary utensils for cooking are available. If you want to be lazy one day, no problem — then you can have dinner in the Naroch hotel complex. And, of course, do not forget that there are gazebos and a barbecue on the estate territory, and the owners always worry about the availability of firewood in advance.
Entertainments. A real paradise for all sauna lovers: it is on the first floor of each cottage. Karaoke fans will not be deprived either: there is everything here to sing from the heart!
