General

  • Peaceful site with a small pond surrounded by lush countryside views
  • A 10-minute drive from Vircava and 25 minutes from Jelgava and Bauska
  • Wifi, trampoline, volleyball court, play areas, firepit and barbecues

Relocate to a rural spot in Latvia and have yourself a serene stay at Stūrzemnieki, a peaceful park in the middle of some stellar scenery.

This park, a 10-minute drive from Vircava in the Jelgava area, is a prime place for sprawling out with a good book on the grassy grounds or under the trees by the pond in between explores in the local area. During the evenings – post-adventure – soak up the warmth from the firepit while chatting about tomorrow’s plans with other guests, then stoke up the barbecue to get grub on the go.

If you’re after active times during the day, the volleyball court and trampoline will get you moving, plus there’s ample space on the lawns of this fenced park for the sprogs to run amok. Need extra resources to entertain the most energetic of kids? The outdoor play equipment, plus the selection of board games and puzzles available to borrow, should help.

When you’re heading away from base to investigate some of Latvia’s culture and history, Rundāle Palace and Museum is a 15-minute drive, Bauskas Castle is 25 minutes and it takes an hour and 10 minutes to reach Riga.

Other handy facilities at this smasher of a site include wifi, free parking and a shower.

Local attractions

Roam the grounds of Rundāle Palace and Museum (15 minutes’ drive), one of two big baroque buildings created for the Courland dukes during the 18th century, then stroll around Bauska castle, scenically set on a spit of land at the confluence of a couple of rivers in the town of the same name (25 minutes).

That other aforementioned baroque building is Jelgava Palace (30 minutes), the largest in the Baltic states – have a jaunt here and get a glimpse of its Kurzeme Dukes Crypt, a burial chamber with a collection of ornate coffins.

It can get a little stuffy in the cellar, so set off for the Pils Salas Skatu Tornis observation tower (30 minutes) next and let the fresh air waft over you as you admire the far-reaching views over the countryside. Ozolnieku Ezers lake (half an hour) should be next on the list if you’d like to spend a little more time out in the open air.

Still not done with historical wanders? Venture to Valgunde, a women’s Orthodox monastery (40 minutes), and make sure to set aside at least a day of your hols for ambles around the Art Nouveau architecture of Riga (an hour and 10 minutes) as well.
