Accommodations: Altmoisa Guesthouse - Estonia
The Altmoisa Guesthouse lies near the hamlet of Tuuru, 19km south of Haapsalu in Laanemaa country, western Estonia. It is a great base from which to explore the Baltic Coast and in particular the bird-rich Matsalu Bay. The best time to visit is from spring to autumn. Trumpeting cranes and gaggling geese can often be heard from your room and if you are lucky Elk can be spotted in the marshes and woods nearby. Though in a remote setting the guesthouse is modern with spacious rooms and internet access. The cuisine, a blend of local produce with an international twist, is also excellent.
