Village for tourists / Ogres district
The recreation center is located in Birzgales parish (Ogres district), outside Riga, in a green area, surrounded by forests, village-like atmosphere, out of city noise – right on the bank of the Daugava River, almost opposite to one of its numerous tiny green islands.
We offer accommodation choices to suit all tastes: in one of the 10 hotel rooms (note that there’s a restaurant on the first floor of the mansion), in one of the three log cottages on the bank of the river, or in the multi-functional Russian bath cottage.
Each cottage consists of two floors: a sitting room with a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchenette (genuine pottery, glasses, tableware, microwave cooker, electric kettle, fridge), as well as WC, and modern shower downstairs and two not very big but extremely cozy bedrooms upstairs (four places to sleep on all in all, but there’s enough space to accommodate a more impressive company if needed).
To say that the window of the sitting room in each cottage almost covers the whole wall – from the tiled floor and up to the wooden ceiling – would be a minor exaggeration, because they’re really huge and offer a great view on the river and the picturesque opposite bank.
There is a balcony on the second floor of the remote cottage, where you can enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning and watch the distant stars at night. Besides, at the entrance to each of the cottages there’s a little terrace with benches to sit on in the sunshine on a nice day.
All cottages are equipped with a modern fire-alarm system.
The terrain here is hilly, which makes this place even more charming – the relatively large mansion with the restaurant and the hotel stands on the top of the hill and in order to reach the four cottages one has to move down the pathway leading to the river, through a modest garden, which is nevertheless rich in plant species.
Hotel offers accommodation choices in one of the 10 hotel rooms (note that there’s a restaurant on the first floor of the mansion). The terrain here is hilly, which makes itself even more charming – the relatively large mansion with the restaurant and the hotel stands on the top of the hill so you’ll be able to enjoy the peaceful view.

Every single thing in here, is to increase the comfort of the visitors and create a homely atmosphere. The carefully designed interiors, touching details like the vase with fresh flowers on the table in the sitting room, the light honey-like wood in the d?cor of the cottages, stylized furniture – each item is invoked to create harmony and good mood of the inhabitants.
You don’t need to worry about such practical things as dishware, kitchen facilities, towels, bedclothes or firewood –we have already taken care of all these earthly aspects.
The huge window of the first floor faces the river: talking to friends in the sitting room you’ll be able to enjoy this peaceful view; from the windows of the second-floor bedrooms you can see the garden and the variety of plant species it shelters.
RUSSIAN BATH COTTAGE
The Russian bath cottage consists of two floors – the Russian bath itself, a shower, WC, a sitting room with a fireplace and a large table (for 15 persons), a kitchenette equipped with basic dishware and devices, stereo system, and karaoke are downstairs; two bedrooms (for two persons each) are upstairs. The interior d?cor of the cottage is homogenous – genuine wood, pottery, stylized furniture, which seems to be a successful combination of our environmentally sound past and the comforts and amenities of modern life.
Those eager to make use of the Russian bath can put all the worries aside as concerns such bath accessories as towels, sheets or slippers – everything will be ready when you arrive. It is possible to buy a birch broom and aromatic oils right in the recreation center – the complete set of bodily and mental pleasures close to nature and in a comfortable and homely atmosphere.
Those who like all kinds of natural things can take a dip in the river after the bath, and in winter – take a plunge in an ice-hole (descending is extremely easy since the pier is equipped with a functional ladder).
