Winter Dream: FairyTale Forest
Would you like to celebrate New Year's Eve or Christmas in this fairy-tale wooden house? Just imagine - nothing but snow-covered fir-trees all around, transparent winter air... it's cold outside, but you sit in a cosy wicker chair near the fireplace... wooden logs crackle in the fire and the scent of the fir tree adds to the aroma of tangerines and pastry.
