If Jūrmala bling isn't your thing, head up the Gulf of Riga for an old fashioned seaside holiday on a striking stretch of coast called the Vidzeme Stony Beach. Here you'll find the giant Lauču akmens boulder, mascot for adorable Vidlauči guesthouse. Run for over 20 years by Rudīte and Jēkabs Balodis, Vidlauči offers a pristine beach with incredible sunsets, beautifully tended gardens, rooms so comfy you'll never want to leave, and delicious meals made from fresh, local ingredients.
Save for the crashing waves and whispering wind, the peace and quiet of Vidlauči will stay with you long after your visit.
Food & Drink: Rudīte cooks up locally-caught fish with potatoes and salad from her own garden. Your carbon footprint doesn't get smaller than this! Lunch guests are welcome in season.
Sleep: The accommodation house has ten recently-renovated rooms with big windows offering spectacular sea views. You can also rent the sauna house next door for your special celebration.
Fun: Run out of the sauna straight into the surf.
Transport: Drive 60 km north on the highway to Tallinn and turn off at the signs for "Lauču Akmens."
