According to the nature of Estonians, the inhabitant of Taheva is modest, but at the same time incredibly insistent and hardworking. As if by the way, he survives the harsh winter weather and bad road conditions, and where he sees a mistake to complain about, he puts his hands on to help. He respects his neighbour and traditions, does not consider it much effort to bring farm butter and prescription medicine from the city to his neighbor old lady or to get his hands dirty at village communal working days. He is genuine and honest, our own and firm. He cares, cares for himself, his family and home, his village and community. He creates and changes the world, takes charge and, if necessary, helps.
Yes, Estonia starts right here, right on the banks of the beautiful border river Koiva, where, according to the customs of Old Võrumaa, real life is still lived. Straight from here, where there are the most beautiful pine forests, mysterious mushroom sites, green meadows and magical sunrises. This is the place where the concert of crickets on foggy August nights reaches even louder than the hustle and bustle of the city, where wild strawberries, even sweeter than sugar, delights the picker. Here we live in nature and with nature, here we are scattered and at the same time we live so close together, with each other. We know each other here, we don’t walk by each other.
If necessary, we get together. So that the parties could be held, that the work could be done, that the ideas could be imagined big and grown bold. Everyone is needed, can’t go on without a single one. People here are priced in gold, young and experienced create our story together. We have people who can play around with hyper-super modern technology with an ease, those who know how to create maximum value with project grants, those who come with work gloves on their hands, when it is necessary to set up a midsummer fire in the village or clean the road ditches from garbage. We have visionaries, musicians, artists, craftsmen, novice young and nimble ladies. We value our neighbors from Karula and Mõniste, because you can’t do without them in countryside. Together we look forward to welcoming guests, together we welcome new residents, together we promise to be of good support to you, good people interested in countryside life, if you decide in our favor.
