The house, renovated in 2000, is situated in the Latvian most famous seaside resort town - Jurmala, not far from train station "Dubulti" on Akas str. 4, {15 km from Riga airport). It takes about 30 minutes by train or bus to go there from the center of Riga.

The hotel is situated in a small, quiet park in a seaside resort town. It takes just 100 metres to the Baltic Sea and its pine trees and sandy dunes. On the opposite side - 100 metres to the Lielupe, one of the biggest rivers in Latvia. Important objects near hotel - 350 metres to jugend style church of Jurmala built in the beginning of 20th century, 30 metres to the "House of Tales", hosted by phantasy and ancient culture community, which organises lectures, concerts, medieval fights and pottery courses in their house.

Within the house there are 5 single rooms. 6 two room suites and self-service kitchen dining room.There is also a small hall that can be used as a conference hall for no more than 20 people. There are no technical equipment like computers and Internet available at the moment.

Writers' and Translators' House
Kasmu, Estonia

Is located 78 km to the east of Tallinn in Kasmu, a village in Lahemaa National Park, once populated by fishermen and shipbuilders. Since September 1997 the Centre has been housed in the freshly renovated "captain's house" from the beginning of former century, and is run by the Estonian Writers' Union.

The Centre consists of units incorporating a workroom, bedroom plus a bathroom and toilet, four writers or translators staying at any one time.There is also a well-equipped communal kitchen for self-catering, a dining room, a library and a sauna and a telephone for the use of all guests. Each room is equipped with a PC computer with Windows OP-system. Near the Centre are both a shop and a post-office and there is a bus service providing connection with Tallinn twice a day.

Kasmu is a traditional summer holiday resort and is thus at its best (though not necessarily at its quietest) during summertime.Those looking for peace and quietness for literary pursuits will find the combination of the beauty of nature and the majesty of the sea especially conductive to work all the year round, since the Centre is open for all twelve months of the year. The prices are reasonable. We would like to welcome writers and translators from around the Baltic sea to stay at the Centre. Please arrange your stay well in advance with the Estonian Writers' Union.
