    Description

    My name is Eki. The house
    is an old border guard building, located close (400 m) to the Russian border in eastern Finland. Currently, this is a private home.

    I have lived here for the past 18 years, at the moment with a cat, four Alaskan Malamutes sled-dogs (outside 24hrs and chicken. The house is grand, with a total of 10 rooms.

    This is a very quiet and peaceful place, with the nearest shop located 25 kilometers away. Here you enjoy the silence!
