  • Description


    Hi, I'm Vilis!
    I live in my country side estate together with a happy-feet dog girl and a lazy cat boy. Our home is located in a small village called Renda near the gorgeous historical town Kuldiga. What's special about the town? Here you will find the widest waterfall and longest brick bridge in Europe. Pretty cool, isn't it?
    My country estate is too big for the three of us, so we will be happy to share our roof with someone who can help me out with some small bits and bobs; cooking, housekeeping and, of course, having fun!
    The house is currently in the first stage of my project and I'm hoping to get it buzzing with energy so that we can together bring it to the next stages of the project.
    I am very open minded, love deep and engaging conversations, and cozy gatherings with friends. I'm happy to tell you more and answer any questions that you may have - so be sure to drop me a line!
