Very nice and quiet place to just relax and take it easy. Wonderful pillows. In my opinion number 1 mansion in Estonia

We loved our stay at Vihula manor. We stayed at a zen suite. Our room was really cozy and private which was perfect for a romantic vacation. The surroundings on the estate are beatiful. We stayed only for one night and during winter, but we would definitely want to go back during summer and stay for longer, because it looks like they have a lot of activity oportunities, for example discgolf and spa which we didn't have time to use. Restaraunt was great, my best experience of all hotel visitations in Estonia. Food looked and tasted amazing. Breakfast food selection for ditterent items was not very big like in bigger hotels but there was no need for it because everything in the selection was with good quality and very inviting. Staff was very friendly and attentive towards our needs.

A very beautiful area, consisted of many old, nicely renovated buildings and huge terrain around, very well preserved too. Even a 1,5 kms hiking trail on the premises...! Everything situated only about 4-5 kms from the sea and great, sandy beach with big stones. The hotel is very nice, but what we liked most was the really exceptional breakfast with a great choice (eg. 8 types of herrings!; fresh fruits, many yoghurts, apart from all the usually served things like ham, cheese, eggs, sausages, cereals etc.). Steam sauna and pool free of charge. Other saunas and spa treatments additionally paid. Great to be there (especially if you catch some good promotion!, as the regular price are rather high), even if some can say it all seems to be a bit snobbish...

The scenery is amazing and the staff is friendly. But, the broken door on our bathroom didn't get fixed during our four day stay. Breakfast is offered from 8-10, but they stop replenishing the servings at around 9:15.

Perfect place to get away from the city. It's especially beautiful during summer time. Has all sorts of activities including golf, museum, spa, animals, restaurants.

Historic Site of the week

Trepucó Talayotic Settlement

The settlement of Trepucó is one of the largest on Menorca, covering an area of around 49,240 square metres. Today, only a small part of the site can still be seen, the two oldest buildings, the talaiots (1000-700 BCE). Other remains include parts of the wall, two square towers on the west wall, the taula enclosure and traces of dwellings from the post-Talayotic period (650-123 BCE).The taula enclosure is one of the biggest on the island, despite having been subjected to what, by today’s standards, would be considered clumsy restoration work. This is one of the sites excavated around 1930 by Margaret Murray, a British archaeologist who was a pioneer of scientific research on Prehistoric Menorca.

The houses are perfectly visible on the west side of the settlement, due to excavation work carried out several years ago. They are multi-lobed with a central patio area and several rooms arranged around the outside. Looking at the settlement, it is easy to see that there was a clear division between the communal area (between the large talaiot and the taula) and the domestic area.The houses near the smaller talaiot seem to have been abandoned at short notice, meaning that the archaeological dig uncovered exceptionally well-preserved domestic implements, now on display in the Museum of Menorca.The larger talayot and the taula stand at the centre of a star-shaped fortification built during the 18th century.
