John Lewis Balfour
From history it is known that in 1837 the estate was bought by John Lewis Balfour and ordered the erection of a new manor’s house. Consequently, the report dates back around 1840. This date also corresponds to the composition of the building and the style of the used building materials.
As in this weekend we will have Furniture restoration/renovation workshop the manor in this weekend 6th and 7th July will be closed for visitors. Visit now or plan to next week. #travel #heritage #visitlatvia

For the first time Padure as part of Cours land Bandava was mentioned in 1253. First records of Padure Manor allocation are from Year 1404 when the Master of Order Dietrich von Torck issued Hermann Grund (Hermann Grundy) land in Kuldiga’s Commandry at Venta river.
How to get
From Riga you can get there by driving on the A10 / E22 road to Kandava turning onto P130. After you reach Kuldiga there are two options. Go through Kuldiga and see this beautiful city or use the bypass. By the bypass you should travel around Kuldiga until you see the sign "Ventspils". Then there is a very small piece left. Approximately 6 km turn right, where the very beautiful linden alley begins. And you are here. Total distance from Riga is 168 km.
It's even easier from Ventspils. Find the P108 and drive 47 km and then turn left onto Paduri. And again you are here. Total distance 52.3 km
