My grandfather built this traditional country house, it's now completely renovated but still has the charm. Enjoy the sauna, garden and patio and unwind. This is country life less than 1 km from the town centre. My parents live close by and are more than happy to tell you about the area or help you if you need.

The space

The first floor has one bedroom, bathroom, sauna, kitchen and livingroom. Upstairs is a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and an open livingroom with a single bed. There's also a balcony upstairs. The whole house is light and airy.

Guest access

You'll have full access.

Interaction with guests

Usually my parents (who speak Swedish, English and Finnish) handle check ins and outs.

Sofias house is nicely located in a peaceful surrounding. Although we only stayed for one night we had an interesting afternoon visiting the church with the 150 wooden horse stables and Keskinen, the pittoresque old town, where we had a snack at Ninas Cafe, a tiny place at the harbour. Sofias house is a special place and she is a friendly and attentive host. We will always like to remember our stay there.

Such a MARVELOUS quaint old farm home updated meticulously. So light and homey, spacious and comfortable. Sofia's parents are DELIGHTFUL and very helpful. Our stay in their home was perfect. It's situated a bit out of the way right in the middle of an all Swedish speaking Finnish community. Charming.

Response from Sofia:
Thank you Teresa! I wish I would've been here to meet you - we would've had lots to talk about. Mum n dad really enjoyed talking to you too and said you were super nice. hopefully our paths will cross another time! oh and as far as the house goes, my grandpa built it and mum, my uncle and dad collectively planned and renovated it. It's changed a whole bit from when I was a kid but it's still "grandma's house":)

After a more adventurous time in the mountains of Sweden we were looking for a place to lean back a bit and relax. We found the perfect spot with this charming house. The weather was not showing its best side but that was not an issue at all. We were reading books in front of the fireplace and enjoyed the sauna :) The kitchen is quite roomy and bright, we enjoyed very much cooking our own meals there :) We definitely recommend a stay here if you're in the area! Sofias parents are also very kind and helpful. They have great tips for the area and one feels welcome right from the start!

I'm a Swedish speaking Finn from Finland, I like to travel, see new places and meet people from other places and cultures. Other interests include food (cooking also) and wine, friends, knitting, crafting etc etc. I've lived in a few different countries but am currently based in Helsinki. From here I do a lot of city hopping for weekends. For vacations I love doing longer trips. The US sits firmly in my no 1 spot of favorite places.
