We liked Rantatuuli Paasisalo very much. The Villa is very conveniently located in a rather isolated Island off a small and quite town where one can shop for whatever one needs whenever one needs to, but at the same time enjoy the calm and the pleasure of the rather isolated villa. The Villa is maintained in the highest standards in terms of all the appliances and we found it very clean and fit for people like us who like to feel that a place we liven is clean and well taken care of. The views and the lake provided wonderful background to the wonderful week we spent at the villa. In addition, we were able to discover Kuopio, a very special place with its famous tower restaurant that we highly recommend, the port with the lake view tours and the central city market that enjoyed very much.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Laurinranta. It was an idyllic setting right by the lake. It was so peaceful. The one thing that I would comment on is the cleanliness of the cottage. It was not as clean as we would have expected. Towels were small and not very good for drying you. A few more guide notes may be useful, especially on how to use the outboard motor on the boat. I found Finland Cottage Rentals very helpful in arranging the booking and providing us with directions to the cottage. On the whole we had a fantastic time at the lakeside location and would possibly look to book with Finland Cottage Rentals in the future, however I would be looking for better value for money next time around and may go for a smaller cottage.
Our stay in the cottage Juolukka was fantastic. We liked the area and location, very quiet and in the heart of nature. The cottage was very nice, clean and cute for 2 persons. There was everything what we needed, with equipment in the kitchen and all was arranged very cosy. We had a very nice time there, we were going for trekking, and in the relax time we baked the blueberry muffins and just looked on the lake. Very nice time, and the owners were very nice and helpful. Thank you for the great time, we would love to come back again.

We had a very good stay in Villa Eino which lived up to our expectations. The arrangements, both with Finland cottage rentals and the owner, all went very smoothly. It was easy to find, very rural, very close to the lake and truly surrounded by nature. The cottage was well equipped and the shower and sauna worked well. Our only slight complaint is that the beds were of a narrow single size and, while they were not exactly uncomfortable, felt rather like sleeping in a child’s bunk bed.
We had a great time – perfect cottage in gorgeous surroundings. We loved the space and the peace – the silence was absolute. Just the birds and the wind across the lake. We came back with batteries fully recharged and ready to face the world again.
We would definitely recommend both Finland Cottage Rentals and Turja – in fact we’re thinking we’d like to come back and stay in a different season. Finland in winter must be beautiful!
We had a wonderful holiday at this cottage. It was well equipped and had good view of and access to the lake. The sauna was great as well – perfect for midnight swimming! The owner was really forthcoming and always around for questions. We enjoyed having a grocery store only 7km from the cottage. However, with proximity to civilization there also comes a bit of noise; The downside of this location was that there was a road nearby – it’s not as if it was loud or anything, but it also wasn’t peacefully quiet. But that is really a minor problem that you only notice if you give this attention. I very much enjoyed the interactions I had with Finland Cottage Rentals. My questions were always answered quickly and I felt in good hands.
I’m sorry it’s taken so long but I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for organising our stay at Loma-Pälsilä. We had a fantastic time, again. It was just what we needed and as always Finland and it’s people exceeded our expectations.
First of all I like to thank you for your great support in planning and arranging our wonderful vacations in your country, especially to Matthew and Pilvi. Although we were hesitating to use a foreign provider we are positively surprised. Support and reaction time on inquiries were much better than from some German providers. Everything you promised did comply with our expectations. We enjoyed the cottage, surroundings and location very much, especially the Sauna house. It was very relaxing for all of us to hear the silence far away from any civilisation. Except some birds, only the buzzing of mosquitos violated our calm. Any kind of fish we could catch from the lake by using the boat with the small outboard engine. The bicycles may have been better. They were not really suitable for longer trips.
