Secluded summer house compound made up of several pine log cabins by a magical lake complete with two traditional wood burning saunas. Experience the magic of Finnish summer swimming in the lake, enjoying sauna, woodland walks, bicycle rides with Tampere 30 minutes away and shops only 5 minutes by car.
This is our family summer house and we are based in the UK and Israel, so we don't use it much in May, June or September. It is a very special place which is ideal for large family groups because there are two fully habitable cabins, and two additional ones where people can sleep but they don't have adjacent bathrooms so can suit younger family members wanting their own space
The cabins are literally on the shores of a lake so you can enjoy sauna,followed by a dip in the lake (or just swimming, when it's warm enough).
There is a large outdoor table for big family meals, the space inside is a bit more tight.
There are two functioning kitchens in the main cabins so groups can cook together or separately.
Also outdoor cooking facilities are available in the shape of a BBQ.
The location is close enough to the town for shopping and other activities. Our children love going to Sarkaniemi, the theme park in Tampere, where you never have to wait in line longer than 10 minutes
I am based in London but a local family, Titta and Seppo will be welcoming you. You can message me for any information you need and I can arrange any help you might need with Titta and Seppo.
Другие важные подробности
Watch this space. There's so much more but I'll add it gradually.
There is no lifeguard, so make sure swimming is undertaken with caution.
Also saunas can be used but make sure you have been briefed and are aware of fire safety information.
Regarding pets, we come with our dogs but they are not allowed in the house proper, only in the enclosed outer terrace. We expect you to do the same and have your dog beds in that area, setting boundaries for the dogs not to come into the house.
Also, in Finland you NEVER wear shoes in the house. You are welcome to borrow from the existing collection of Crocks and wellies, and also to borrow house socks if you'd like.
An Airbnb host for over six years, I love having new people come and stay at my fabulous flat in Belsize Park, Archway and the City of London. My guests are always delighted with the accomodation and I enjoy seeing their faces as they come into the flat and see the standard of accommodation for their holiday. Many of my guests come again and again. Make sure you book early because I have nearly full occupancy all year round.
