Reviewed November 27, 2013

House is in a good state, there are many things left after Chekhov family and a lot of stories are told by the guides! also very small but lovely park to stroll round the house.

“Nice visit to Chekhov's datcha”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Very happy to visit Chekhov's datcha in Yalta. The house and the garden are very well maintained, with genuine conservation (it is basically how it was). Unfortunately not all rooms are opened for visit.
The museum has a vast collection of pictures and interesting movie in English.

“Small, interesting, helps to be a Chekhov fan”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Chekhov lived with his family in this house for only about four years. It is interesting to get some glimpse of this famous man's lifestyle, especially juxtaposed with seeing the palaces. The garden is a delight. However, there is not a lot of history to be learned there, no docents to educate you, so if you're a fan then it is a place to go, otherwise I would not spend my time there.

“Charming visit for Chekhov fans”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

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.

“An enchanting place and a beautiful song recital in the museum”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

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.
