Loode Talu tourist farm


Nominally Kuralase. The Loode Talu is well signposted from the main bitumen road along a reasonable gravel track for 3km. It is in the centre of the Tagamoisa peninsular in the northwest corner of the island.


We prebooked by email early in the year. We were the only guests staying there that night although a local family was served an evening meal in the dining room by arrangement.

We paid 580EEK ($67 australian) for bed and beakfast and a further 300EEK ($35 australian) for an evening meal (fish bony but tasty). view of guesthouse


It is a huge old farmhouse. The owner is a keen do it yourselfer and has clearly tried to improve the facilities with limited success. He has put a large picture window in the sitting room. It was pleasant sitting there in the late afternoon with the wood stove going. Our little bedroom was adequate but not too well equipped. The bathroom/shower is at the bottom of the stairs and you need the double windows open all the time for ventilation. The adjacent toilet cupboard is the original earth closet which certainly saves going outside in the dark and the cold but just seems unnecessarily primitive today. We received a doubtful welcome when we arrived from the owner's wife who did not seem delighted to have people to stay and was more interested in whatever she was doing on her computer. When husband Valdo came home he was much more friendly. He speaks English fluently and told us a bit about the place. We secured our bikes for the night beneath the ample overhang of the thatched roof eaves.


If you wanted to spend a couple of days exploring the peninsular it might make an acceptable base but for an overnighter it is not really recommended.
