3 days as a Latvian manor mistress

What would it be like if I were… For example, a real Latvian manor mistress?

My name is Nora Poiša, and I am the owner of Lielborne Manor. I invite you to my home to spend 3 days at Lielborne Manor, chatting over dinner, cooking in the manor cellar, exploring history, having fun and creating landscape views. We will go outside together, as well as work indoors. For some, this will be an opportunity to take a look at the life in nowadays manor, for others to realize the extent of the challenge in order to accept their own, for others a new recipe, for others a completely different start to the year.

Your own manor, your flower meadow, your fresh eggs laid every morning, breakfast coffee on the manor balcony, dinner at a beautifully set table. It sounds idyllic 🙂 Come and see and spend three unforgettable days with the real Latvian mistress Nora!
