Having made his fortune manufacturing mattresses you would expect nothing less than a really comfy bed at this rural retreat in the depth of the Lithuanian countryside called Padvaisko dvaras rural farmstead. You will not be disappointed. A chance to return to a simpler lifestyle without sacrificing creature comforts. The owner and his wife have spared no expense to recreate a 19th century farmstead. The interior of the wooden chalets are reminiscent of childhood fairy tales – you can almost imagine Little Red Riding Hood knocking on the door. It comes as a complete surprise when the owner, dressed in peasant clothes, opens up his garage to proudly display his collection of super-charged cars and 4 x 4’s.

Take a city break in Lithuania to sample the unspoilt delights of the Baltic region’s most undiscovered country. With an unusual heritage of pagan roots and a Catholic upbringing, Lithuania is culturally distinct from its neighbours Estonia and Latvia, lending it a strong sense of uniqueness that is otherwise difficult to find elsewhere in Europe. Lithuania has truly shaken free of its former Soviet shackles to become a vibrant, colourful and progressive country just waiting to be explored.

City breaks in Lithuania tend to focus on its small but perfectly formed capital, Vilnius. Despite its size, Vilnius is home to Europe’s largest Old Town area, a medieval masterpiece brimming with stunningly-preserved baroque architecture, winding, cobbled streets interspersed with cosy eateries and cafés, and a plethora of gorgeous churches.

Vilnius is also rich with historical and religious significance: the Museum of Genocide Victims, housed in a former KGB building, shows what life was like under Soviet rule, while the Gates of Dawn displays one of the most sacred icons in Europe and is a popular pilgrimage sight for Catholics (and said to possess healing powers.)

A progressive city, Vilnius’ skyline is dotted with skyscrapers – a symbol of the country’s economical ambitions – and there is a lively modern arts scene making a city break in Lithuania a colourful and exciting experience as well as a refreshing and culturally satisfying one.
