Smal and intimate in pretty gardens. In original state as if family just walked out. The local ladies who oversee the rooms were very sweet despite no English and tried to convey as much to us as possible. Guies in English in each room were helpful.

The house is set in a beautiful garden which was created by Chekhov himself. The house is small and unpretentious but must have been quite comfortable. You can visit all the rooms as well as the kitchen which was in a separate building at the back.
There is a (modern building) museum which displays a lot of objects and photos from Chekhov's life.
We were fortunate to be on tour which had arranged a local songs recital in the museum.

A lovely quiet place, Chekhov's dacha was preserved by his sister in his memory.

If you are a Russian speaker there seems to be an extensive display, but as tourists we were sent straight to the house where we were the only visitors and able to soak up the atmosphere.

This was one of the top three things we saw in Ukraine. We are all interested in literature and we even reread some of Chekhov's plays before our trip, but in addition to that, this place was extremely well maintained, and we felt that the docents (who spoke NO English at all, by the way) were happy to have us. Most importantly, they gave us small notebooks printed in English that explained each room. It was just a lovely place with a wonderful atmosphere. There is also a short film in English.

We went from the port to the house by taxi, a cultural experience in itself. I can say with certainty that I will NEVER drive in Yalta. One other note about the taxi: We didn't intend for the driver to wait for us, but he insisted (and didn't speak English), so we ended up paying him more, but he did indeed wait for us. We agreed on one hour and that was just right. Other friends had the same experience. We were with someone who had a little trouble with walking and it would have been a LONG walk back to the port.

Stunning garden, interesting house- well worth visiting. We went by bus feeling very brave! Tourist office gave us perfect instructions despite struggles with each others language! We walked back downhill
