Villa Wesset


Pärnu is a quaint town offering fun activities and delightful discoveries for everyone. It is a very compact town, and most places of interest are conveniently within a short walk or a bike ride. Bikes are available for rent at our hotel. Tourist attractions, cultural venues, the beach, restaurants, shops and night clubs are all located in the same area, and Villa Wesset is right in the middle of it.

We got a call from a satisfied client. He had visited your hotel over the Christmas holidays. He was full of praise. Everything had been just wonderful. The kitchen and the chef/chefs earned the highest compliments.

We are very satisfied. The staff was extremely friendly and responsive; likewise, the dinner was organised very well (the personal menus were a great idea)! The food was tasty, and the rooms were pretty and clean.
Everything went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend your villa to my friends.
Good luck with the next summer season!

See you again!
