I'm living in Loviisa, a old town with wooden houses 1,5 hours east from Helsinki. You’ll love my place because is quiet, very quiet.... there are forests with berries and mushrooms, and a small beach! It is perfect for kids: in front of my house there is a nice playground. My house is composed by two separate buildings, that give enough privacy and at the same time the chance to gather together. I have a cat. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

The space

The guest house is a wooden building from the 50s. There is a full equipped kitchen with dishwasher machine, a king size bedroom, a retro style living room with a double sofa bed, entrance and toilet. Shower room is reachable from outside through a staircase downstairs where there is the sauna and laundry room.
The main building is 100 years old wooden house that occasionally I also rent. There is a rough but picturesque kitchen, a small bedroom, a second room with extra beds and an ample and spacious living room adaptable for events, meeting, concerts and parties. In this house there is a bathroom, recently renovated with an antique bathtub.

Guest access

Sauna and laundry room is accessible from the guests of both the houses, under a previous deal about the time for keeping the privacy.

Our 1-night stay was amazing! Beniamino was the most generous, warm and helpful host one could find - he even offered to pick us up from the bus station when we arrived. The rooms and the surroundings were cute and the house was well-equipped. There was even breakfast supplies and delicious home-made apple juice for us to enjoy. I would recommend this Mediterranean Inn most warmly to anyone.

A great place to stay with a lot of character! A beautiful old house at the yard of another one in a very convenient, quiet location. Very comfortable bed, innovative decoration inside and out, some breakfast stuff in the fridge, a lovely cat visiting... :) Very good communication with the host; we felt welcomed as friends even though we didn't have a chance to meet Beniamino in person. Going downstairs to the shower/sauna department might be a little tricky for a tall or a bigger person but we only found it as one of the characteristic sides of the stay. Warmly recommended for people who want to see a piece of art in progress!

Feel at home in one of Beniamino's cosy wooden houses! The place is lovely and fully equipped (including a movie screen) although some enhancements are not yet completed. The bed is most comfortable, and you can have the visit of Beniamino's cat, if you wish. To be noticed that in the smaller house, you need to go outside to reach the bathroom. Beniamino is very responsive, and even though we met only once, he has been very considerate prior and all along my stay. In one word: perfect!

Ben is a good host. It is attentive and takes care to his visitors . He has let me fruits, eggs, milk and his excellent apple juice for my arrival. I appreciated its flexibility for the arrival time. I had a pleasant stay including his invitation for a tasting of homemade pasta. The house is pretty and decorated with transformed objets according to Ben personality

Casa BenItalia is an old fashion house with all necessary facilities located in a cosy and quite part of Loviisa city close to the park and the old town. From our point of view both perfect place to relax and to do any types of sport activity including running, bicycling and cross-country skiing. Park, sea and shop to buy something are also very close. The owner is a really good and friendly person, always ready to help and provide necessary piece of advice to his guests.

Были у Beniamino в конце августа. Все понравилось, дом не новый, но очень чисто и удобно. Просторная кухня и две спальни. Чистое постельное белье и полотенца. Душ в сауне, которая в подвале дома, вход сразу, как спустишься с крыльца. Beniamino и его родители живут в доме напротив. Дом очень интересный, является достопримечательностью города, они еще ремонтируют его. Город сам, если кто не был, как картинка. Тихий, аккуратные домики, красивый берег, который тоже еще облагораживают.Можно порыбачить в заливе(ниже пляжа), есть два озера на западе и на востоке, но там нужна лодка. А к морю можно прямо к воде на машине подъехать. Даже такой рыбак как я поймал окуня. Видели на море и на озере диких гусей, серьезные птицы размером с собаку, очень ругаются, когда приближаешься к ним . Недалеко Сириус, где дети могут полетать в аэротрубе или постоять на доске на искусственной волне. Beniamino позаботился о завтраке( чай, кофе, молоко, мед, печенье и итальянское печенье ручной работы, которое пекут его родители). Поэтому хочу сказать, что соотношение цена-качество очень хорошее. Beniamino и его родители воспитанные, доброжелательные и очень приятные люди, спасибо им за это.

Bonne nuit passée dans cette maison atypique. La maison est sympathique et dépaysante. Elle est encore en travaux et certaines pièces (comme la cuisine) sont à finir et sont pour l'instant moins accueillante. Le reste est très sympathique, c'est un mélange d'anciens et de neufs. Une décoration soignée et atypique. C'était une expérience sympa. Beniamino a été très gentil et très accueillant, il nous a bien expliqué le fonctionnement de la maison. Il nous a apporté le petit déjeuné avec un très bon jus de pomme de son jardin. Ce sont des attentions qui font vraiment plaisir. Merci pour ce bon séjour.

Usually I spend my time at home and I am happy to share time with a nice homemade dinner and cozy party.

About Beniamino

Here is Beniamino,a short man from Italy that decided since 2011 to move to Finland 'cause I love this country, its nature, its social system. I'm a dancer and choreographer. I love to cook and eat good food! I like watching film on my sofa. I need sometimes to do some gardening and renovating my old house. I like to share time drinking and having fun, but I also love to take my own time for myself: here in Finland is great to do it, walking alone by the sea or in the forest is a good exercise for own spiritual. My philosophy: - Be egoist and give pleasure to my body first: good food and relax. - Try to reach own ambitions by doing and doing again: perseverant! - Love people around and spend time with them!
