Finland is famous for its sauna culture and stunning lake scenery. Experience a unique Finnish cottage holiday with your own sauna, private beach and woodland. Whether you choose a seasonal summer cottage, known in Finnish as the “mökki”, or a rustic log cabin, you’ll find many that offer their own private land so that you’ll be guaranteed your own space, perhaps running from the hot sauna down to the water to cool off, or fishing from the end of your own personal jetty. They also offer great access to the lakes, some having their own boats and other equipment. Sizes vary from small, two-person cottages to those catering for large groups, so you’ll be sure to find something that suits you.
The holiday villages of Oravi and Järvisydän have particularly high quality cottages and hotel suites, and are within arm’s reach of the beautiful National Parks Linnansaari and Kolovesi.
Art & design villas offer all the same great options as other Finnish cabins, but with a lot more flare. Each of these lavish holiday homes is individually designed by its own assigned artist assuring a truly unique experience. Made from natural Finnish materials, the villas and their interiors are ecologically designed and manufactured to minimise their environmental impact but also include a range of personal services including a chef, a beautician, a massage therapist and a villa hostess. They are also conveniently close to nearby services including a spa, pools, recreation routes and restaurants.
If you don’t fancy the seclusion of the countryside, you might prefer the sound of a hotel in Savonlinna or Mikkeli, a Bed & Breakfast or a hostel. Despite being surrounded on all sides by the Finnish lake country and woodland, Savonlinna and Mikkeli are the largest towns in the area and offer a variety of services and entertainment. These include a host of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs, attractions such as St. Olaf’s Castle and the Savonlinna Opera Festival, and other handy town amenities such as supermarkets, banks, and fuel stations.
With over 43,000 holiday homes available in the Saimaa area, each with their own charm, you’ll be spoilt for choice as to where to stay. Book a cottage or hotel in the Savonlinna and Mikkeli area today!
