On a high cliff on the northern coast stands Kalvi castle, from whose windows impressive views open up over the sea and surrounding countryside. It's harder to imagine a more romantic building: constructed entirely from granite, with jagged corner towers and scaled frontons. Its appearance is Gothic from the outside, but was tempered in 1913. It is now thoroughly modernised, with all possible conveniences. In Medieval times was there a fortress here, which has been mentioned as belonging to the family of Lode in 1485. In 1512 Dietrich von Kalff became the owner of the property, from whom the name Kalvi originates. The main house, designed in the 1770s by Gustav von Essen, burned down in 1911 and the owner, Nikolai von Stackelberg had to build a new home. In 1993 the Stackelberg family got their manor back and it was sold to Danish businessman Henning Lykke Jensen, who started renovating the castle into a hotel. A luxurious hotel was opened in the old building in 2002. The hotel rooms offer all manner of conveniences for overnight stays in a royal ambience. Among the 28 elegant rooms there are also three suites. The hotel has a fine a la carte restaurant, which serves food made from produce grown in the manor’s own garden. The cuisine is a mixture of international and local. A glass of wine or cup of coffee can be enjoyed in a cosy bar or fireplace hall. The woods nearby offer great opportunities for recreation, as do the tennis courts and nearby beach. Visitors can use the gym, solarium, so-called health capsule, Turkish and Finnish saunas, and pool. Exclusive rooms and high-tech equipment are offered for those holding conferences. Short trips into the inspiring countryside make for perfect breaks from a busy conference schedule. The combination of nature and cosiness are the factors which make Kalvi castle so irresistible.
