This cosy riverside guest cottage offers the perfect weekend escape. Located near the hamlet of Vana-Vigala, Torgo Farm is about an hour and 15 minutes from Tallinn and 45 minutes from Pärnu.
The guest cottage sleeps four people comfortably, with the possibility of adding a spare bed. It offers bed and breakfast accommodation with the option of dinner in the evenings. Breakfast and dinner are served in the main house. Your host Kristina, a professionally-trained chef with a MA in Gastronomy, culls her inspiration from her world travels. She offers menus based on the freshest local ingredients, many of which she grows in the garden herself.
In spring, the grounds at Torgo Talu come to life with daffodils and colourful tulips. Scents of fragrant apple tree blossoms and lilacs fill the air. During the summer months watch the garden come to life and in autumn enjoy the bounty of the harvest.
Guests can enjoy the gardens, riverside terrace, take walks in the rural countryside, or fish in the river. Couples can enjoy a secluded romantic weekend, while watching the sun set over the meandering river. In the evening, relax in the wood-fired hot tub, or rejuvenate in our traditional Estonian wooden sauna. Birdwatchers may see dozens of species right on the property or on a visit to nearby Matsalu National Park (20 minutes drive), one of Europe's best birdwatching sites.
The rich local farmland offers serenity. A few minutes drive away, explore the ancient manor of Vana-Vigala, the most prominent eighteenth-century Baltic manor, the mysterious marshes of Matsalu, or the quaint streets of nearby towns of Lihula and Märjamaa.
