Overview

Latvia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Riga is the capital of Latvia, a small Baltic Sea nation that has been free from Soviet rule for 24 years. The Old Town is almost completely restored to its ravishing beauty of the 30's when its standard of living equaled Stockholm, Copenhagen and Amsterdam. This apartment is the personal residence of the president of an international Christian charity. He lives in it about 6 months per year. It's available to rent when he is not in Latvia.

It is about 100 years old, but fully renovated. It's in a large apartment building with an old, but functional elevator. The location is amazing, right in the middle of the Old Town. Look out the window and see the National Archives, Philharmonic Hall, Small Guild. Step out of the front door and you are in Dome Cathedral Square. There are countless restaurants, cafés, beer gardens, malls, antique stores, galleries, health spas, museums and places of historical interest. Street parking is not possible; public parking garage near by.

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF EUROPEAN TOURISTS DECLARE THAT RIGA IS EUROPE'S BEST KEPT SECRET. Come and see why.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Old Riga! Walking distance from shopping, dining and most tourist sites and close to bus and tram stops for further destinations. Clean apartment with all needed amenities and the comfort of home. Would stay here every time if available!

Our stay in Riga for the first time was only enhanced by the apartment in Old Riga. The sounds from the music guild wafted in the open windows in the evening, some evenings street musicians could be heard just below. It was blissful. The location was fantastic with neighbor bakery just around the corner and lattes just out the front door. Of course the french press in the kitchen was handy for homebrew coffee. The apartment was comfortable and felt like home not a hotel which is what we really wanted. Vineta the apartment manager was an angel and off course our kids were enthralled with the old fashioned lift. The bathtub was great! I could soak up to my neck in Latvian bath salts after long days of walking the beautiful city of Riga. Thanks Chuck for sharing your home!

Bringing our son home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a few different places on this first trip of three to finalize our adoption. Old town Riga is be far our favorite international city to visit! SO BEAUTIFUL! There are so many wonderful restaurants and bakeries in walking distance. Truly a great place to stay in Old Town. Both the owner and his property manager were wonderful people, very kind and generous spirits. Would love to stay again, maybe our last trip.
