Rest in Partenit, Crimea (July 2002)
Partenit is a paradise on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula, which lies between Alushta and Yalta. This is the mountainous part of the Crimea. The town itself is located between two famous mountains – Mount Bear (Ayu-Dag) and Mount Little Bear. Behind the Ayu-Dag mountain is the famous Artek camp.
Partenit was advised by relatives who go there to rest for the third year in a row. We easily rented a 2-room apartment with a view to the sea and not far from the sanatorium Crimea. It was not far from the sea (10-15 minutes), and our way lay through the sanatorium Crimea, which is just a paradise on earth in a 40 degree heat! It was a park zone, cypress trees, palm trees, exotic flowers, in a word, beauty. Plus the combination of sea and mountain air – it helped to easily transfer unbearable heat, especially for children. In general, for small travelers there are all the conditions for recreation – a lot of moms with prams. In addition to nature and the warm sea (in the first days of July the sea was +24 – +26 degrees), I also liked it very much: the beach is equipped with trestle beds and canopies (who did not have enough, it was possible to buy trestles with canopies for hire), directly on the beach children’s inflatable pool with attractions for the youngest (trampoline, rockers, climbing frames), inflatable hills, renting catamarans, jet skis.
6. The sixth day. Ascent to Mount Ai Petri. We climbed the cable car - the entire coast of the Crimea was as if on a palm. They listened to a small excursion, and then arranged a walk on their horses for the caves. Baby still had time to ride a camel.
7. The Seventh Day - It's time to go home. Our small vacation and a small exciting trip to the Crimea on this was completed. We returned to our dusty and noisy city. But we were rested, got a charge of energy and a sea of impressions, besides, had time to get tanned and swim in the purest sea!
Prices for excursions and accommodation:
Housing in the village. Partenit can be removed in three places: when you immediately turn from the Yalta route to Partenit, near the market and near the central entrance to the sanatorium Crimea. These are the three most popular places. Rent mostly mediators, but you do not pay them. With them the landlady of the apartment is calculated. It is convenient through an intermediary, because you are going to look at several apartments at once and choose the most liked.
In July and August, the prices for housing are as follows: 1-2 room apartments - 15-25 y. e. Everything depends on the location (proximity to the sea), view from the window, availability of air conditioning, boiler, water storage. We took off for 15 y. e. An excellent apartment, with a view to the sea, a boiler, storage, but without air conditioning.
