Motel Waide

Motel Waide is like a little village – it consists of several small houses that are surrounded by the green of trees and shrubs and is located in Tartu County, Southern Estonia, 2 km from Elva. There are several hiking tracks, the Tartu County Recreational Sports Centre and the Hellenurme Mill Museum near Elva. Lorries can stop in our large car park (up to 10 vehicles).
