Our Story

Far enough from the city to escape everyday struggles

Ēriks Dreibants believes that everyone should have a place away from the city to spend time with their loved ones. Having organized birdwatching tours for several years in Līgatne, Latvia, he had little doubt that this place, with so many things to see and do, was a destination worth sharing. Far enough from the city to escape everyday struggles; close enough to return back quickly.

Pure flavors

Do you remember the pleasure of a fully ripe and sun-soaked summer berry on the tip of your tongue? Each time of the year provides different bounties and flavors. We cook using seasonal and pure farm-grown and wild products, so that you can enjoy an unforgettable flavor adventure.

Nature Observation Garden

Nature Observation Garden

The garden surrounding Pavāru māja is a life-long dream of the host Ēriks. It is an opportunity to stop, listen and learn about nature — bird songs, bug hotels, butterfly-attracting flowers and bushes, raised beds of herbs and vegetables. It's a place where you can rewind and see things from a new perspective; and where children can run wild and have fun on the swing set.

Pavāru māja is located in the historical center of Līgatne Paper Mill, on the riverbank, surrounded by high trees and hills. The building has long been important for the people of Līgatne — it was built in 1901 as the Maternity Home "Wilhelma". We are proud to have renovated this house, being able to keep it alive and tell the story of Līgatne history.
