During this culinary escape, you will be staying either at Manor House or Carriage House at Padaste Manor in Estonia.

Manor House

The Manor House of the Padaste Estate has undergone an extensive two-year restoration, bringing back the dignity and nobility the house had held for centuries. This exquisite Manor House, set in idyllic Baltic seaside parkland, had been left totally untouched for decades. In the course of the last fifteen years, it has been saved from dereliction and slowly re-awakened, culminating in a final two-year restoration project completed in June 2008. The origins of the manor go back to the 14th century with some of those ancient walls now at the very heart of the manor. In the latter part of the 19th century, the house was enlarged considerably and given a new façade, hence the harmonious dimensions and clean lines which give the manor it’s character today.

The 14 rooms in the manor are beautifully appointed with luxuriant fabrics, unobtrusive state-of-the-art technology, and wonderful attention to detail. The beds are sumptuous and you’ll walk on warm wooden floors so you will love them! All the superior junior suites and the grand suite have wood-burning fireplaces, stocked up daily with fresh baskets of firewood. There is a personal streaming audio system with virtually thousands of titles available at your fingertips. Views over the parklands and the shores of the Baltic Sea are spectacular and unique. Extra day pillows invite to rest, relax and daydream.

The Manor House offers accommodation in three deluxe doubles, seven superior doubles, three superior junior suites and the grand suite.

  • Elegant, well-appointed bathrooms with large bathtub, separate rainwater shower, WC, and hairdryer
  • iPad for your personal use during your stay
  • Direct-dial telephone
  • AV console with retractable 32-inch Sony Brava HD TV
  • Wireless Sonos audio controller with access to thousands of titles and internet radio
  • Bose acoustimass speaker system
  • Complimentary wireless and wired internet access for your laptop
  • Internet access on your TV screen
  • Minibar, complimentary still water
  • Oversized bathrobes, slippers
  • Superior junior suites feature a wood burning fireplace

Carriage House

Once the home of the barons’ riding-horses and caleches, the Carriage House has been renovated with much attention to detail and now houses six well-appointed junior suites, two superior junior suites, and a double room. Each suite has a private balcony for overlooking the park and sea. A lobby with a fireplace and grand piano can be found on the ground floor. Every split-level suite can accommodate two extra guests on a pull-out couch on the first floor.

The double room and junior suites offer

  • Bathroom with shower, WC, and hairdryer
  • iPad for your personal use during your stay
  • Direct-dial telephone
  • Sat-TV, personal audio system
  • Complimentary wireless internet access for your laptop
  • Minibar, complimentary still water

The larger superior junior suites are fitted with Jacuzzi instead of a shower and 32-inch HD Sony Brava TV. All rooms and suites in the Carriage House are non-smoking.

Location

This culinary vacation will take place in Padaste Manor, Estonia. Padaste Manor is idyllically located at Padaste bay on Muhu Island in the Baltic Sea, just off the coast of western Estonia. Muhu Island is a comfortable two-hour drive from the capital Tallinn. Five 19th century ironstone buildings join the stately manor in a horseshoe shape, opening up to the Baltic Sea. The manor ensemble is set amidst a seven-hectare landscaped park surrounded by 22 hectares of meadows and forests. The estate is surrounded by centuries-old ironstone walls, partly overgrown with moss.

The shoreline gives way to astonishing views of the bay with its islets and untouched coastland. A variety of grasses, ferns, wildflowers, berries, brushes, orchids, pine, birch, and the ‘national’ tree, the juniper paint, the landscape of Pädaste Bay. The park and shoreline form part of a nature protection zone which is well-known for its biodiversity. It is the natural habitat of 23 species of rare orchids. Birdlife is of particular interest since Padaste bay is a favorite stopover location for migratory birds as geese, cranes, ducks, and swans.

Three breeding couples of the rare and majestic sea eagle nest nearby. The nightingales take center stage in the evenings of early June. The park is home to owls, woodpeckers, nesting swallows, tree-nesting ducks, squirrels, and bats. Deer, wild boar, and moose inhabit the surrounding forest. They occasionally can be seen crossing into the park, especially during cold winters.

Things to do (optional)

Muhu sauna

Padaste still follows the old-fashioned tradition to fire the sauna with wood with a pleasant heat as a result. Great to tone-down before a massage or enjoy the sauna just at its own. Follow local traditions and ask for a “viht”, a bunch of young birch branches to stimulate circulation. Combine your woodburning Muhu sauna with a refreshing dip in the Siberian cold tub on the spa terrace. Complimentary salt and Muhu honey rubs are provided.

Siberian cold tub

In Estonia, the local citizens are accustomed to take an ice-cold dip in between sauna sessions to freshen up and tone the body. The recessed wooden tub opens to a great view from the spa terrace towards the bay. The tub is fed by streaming water from the well with a constant temperature of six degrees Celcius

Steambath

A relaxing and cleansing treatment, on itself or as a preparation for a body treatment, Padaste offers a choice of pure natural aromatic essential oils or freshly ground herbs for a soothing, relaxing, or invigorating experience.

Sundeck

The bayside deck at the tiny Pädaste Port is reserved exclusively for hotel guests. The sundeck is situated amidst pristine nature, with a picturesque view of the bay. Here, you can depart for a rowing boat, canoe ride, or take a sunbath and a dip into the bay.
