This handsome manor building stands proudly on the banks of the Kyrönjoki, opposite Ilmajoki’s Opera Arena. Built in 1878, the main building served as a hat factory for several decades. Today, the fully renovated traditional Ostrobothnian log building houses a buffet restaurant that serves delicious lunches on weekdays. The historical milieu offers a festive setting for a wide range of events, which are always tailored to suit the customer. You can spend a memorable night in the old factory manager’s house located in the same yard area. Given a new life as a hostel, this beautiful building also houses tranquil meeting facilities, complete with a sauna and kitchen.
Kestikartano serves lunch on weekdays from 10.30am to 2.00pm. At other times, it is open by special arrangement. Check the opening hours on the manor’s website.
