The Ammende family is gearing up for the summer
That’s how Ammende family prepares for the Pärnu summer season. Everyone gathers together, we sit down behind a long table to discuss all the subjects and sing all the songs, make some dance moves too. This time the table is so long that the eye cannot reach the end and the whole family don’t fit in the picture either.

However, there are plenty of reasons to visit Pärnu – lots of events take place in Pärnu and Villa Ammende summer program is glorious too.

Assortment of handmade cookies
The chefs in our kitchen are all professionals in their field and add touch of love to every dish they make! In addition to sumptuous breakfasts, delicious mains and mouth-watering desserts we also prepare cakes, pastries and biscuits. For this Christmas, our chef Rita made an assortment of handmade cookies.
Rita says the following about the Christmas cookies:
“Give love! A sweet Christmas can be enjoyed at Villa Ammende. One sweet thought came true. I put together a package of six different sweets – meringue, sapphire, gingerbread, crusades, American chocolate chip cookie, nostalgic walnut cookie. No additives or preservatives, glazes and carcasses painted with beetroot powder. All boxes are made and assembled to order. Everything is as fresh as possible and are meant to eat immediately. ”
If Rita says so, then so be it. Christmas is our favorite time! With these cookies in particular….
White Guide 2022
White Guide 2022 recommends 72 ambitious restaurants in Estonia. The Ammende family is happy and proud to be among them! Pärnu No. 1 and Estonia No. 11, there is reason to be happy.
We are reading the lines of Flavors of Estonia with beating hearts: The hotel is both old and fresh. A whole new life is going on in the old house. The third coming of Ammende is significant. The younger generation has taken it upon themselves to develop old values in a new, youthful way. ”
Herkki himself says: “Thank you to my whole team! Such things would not be possible without you. I did it again. 2.5 years ago, when I started to lead the kitchen of Villa Ammende, it was promised that it would become the best place to eat in my hometown Pärnu. Ammende was the best place to eat in Pärnu already before. The title has been circulating in the city for some good years and now it is back home. ”
DAY ON THE GOLF COURSE
Ammende family gathered together for a fun day together. Both young and old, those who come every day, as well as those who help from time to time and natural, eager and cheerful summer helpers. All this in order to put an end to the extremely fast and fierce summer of 2021. We had a chance to take a moment, thank each other and have a jolly good time together. Now we are ready to face autumn with a smile. Thanks to the entire White Beach Golf team who welcomed us. One out of seven Estonian golf courses is now seen and tested, we are ready to conquer the following ones. It’s so wonderful that there are such wonderful places near us as Valgeranna golf course and Pärnu Bay golf course, where you can spend time to do sport and have a good time. We recommend it to everyone!
Villa Ammende garden concerts
Our lovely guest Helen wrote to us, that without Villa Ammende summer concerts there is no real summer for her. It was so sweet of her to say that. It really brought us a lot of happiness to know that we actually create summer feeling for someone. If there is something we can promise, it’s that our summer concerts are worth to visit. There is even a comedy on program! During this summer there are 29 concerts and 3 plays. Most of them are Estonian famous and very famous artists singing their own songs. For the first time we also have few tribute concerts this year, one of them for Ed Sheeran, another one for Whitney Houston. Even the Pärnu City Orchestra has been on our stage and there are also some folk dancers on the programme.
As there is music for every taste our beautiful garden is large too, so you can feel comfortable and it is possible to keep a distance.
the story of how our drink list born
So how did it happen?
Once, three wise men sat down to figure out one awesome wine list. These were Ammende family members Raul, master of food and wine and Herkki, our chef de cuisine. And third man was the top Estonian sommelier Marko Mägi. Marko is an intelligent, passionate, energetic and a warmhearted young gentleman from Saaremaa. Together they created a delicious wine selection that has already won our hearts. The Ammende family would like to thank Marko, who is the heart and soul of this wine list. We are sure that the drinks offered will also win the hearts of the guests of the Ammende family.
To take a peek of the whole drink menu you just have to come and visit us.
Ammende family opened the garden cafe
On 23rd of June we opened our garden cafe. Here you can quickly have a delicious meal during the day and enjoy refreshing drinks on a comfortable bean bag until late hours of the day. It’s a place where you can pop before or after the beach or before heading to the night club.
Garden cafe menu contains six dishes: barley risotto, goat cheese salad, Caesar salad, salmon carpaccio, mussels and pasta with pesto. Ice cream pearls are a magic word for children. We offer food until 5pm.

How to become a talent
Sometimes we have to step away from our our daily life and take time off to move further. So with this in mind, we took a couple of days off and went to the country side. We were hosted by Ojako tourism farm. We met with Alar Ojastu, who inspired Ammende family a lot. Every Ammende family member can assure you that. Each of us got good ideas, how to be happier and how to carry out our everyday activities with an ease and success.
Thank you Alar for getting together with us and giving us so much inspiration! We are now quite a lot smarter and happier than we were before! The art of selfless hospitality is worth learning for sure.
