Ružciems


Art house.
Art house.

For a perfect blend of art and nature, point your paintbrush towards Ružciems in Kurzeme. In this 500-year-old manor house, artist Laila Kelle has created a beautiful guesthouse filled with her paintings, surrounded by a large nature reserve where wild animals and birds roam free.

Pop in for lunch, wander the nature trail, or stay over for an adventure of beauty and silence.


Food & Drink: Laila is also a fabulous cook who conjures up gourmet delights only using ingredients from Ružciems and neighbouring farms. Lunch guests are welcome - call ahead. Her homemade vodka packs a kick too.

Sleep: The second floor has about a dozen rooms, each individually decorated by Laila. You can stay the night on your own or rent the whole place for your special event.

Fun: Get your creative juices flowing in one of her painting classes.


Transport: Drive 100 km west from Riga, and check out Pure Chocolate Museum on the way.
