  • Beschreibung


    In the summer season, I live in this 100-year-old loghouse that we renovated for my family about 15 years ago. This place provides a very peaceful stay near a small village, surrounded by old wooden villas and wild gardens. My dream is to develop this place into an eco-community that provides mindful and creative services year-round. I run retreats occasionally and this summer 2024 three retreats are coming up. I would also need help in preparations for that.

    I have only half a hectare of land around the house and most of it is wild at the moment. The plan is to develop the garden slowly into a farming area (in the back) and a garden area (in the front).

    My place is located just 80 km from Helsinki to the north and you can easily get here by commute that takes about 1 hour (from Helsinki 11€) and around 40 mins from the airport. Riihimäki is the nearest city that has attractions as well (museums, restaurants, shops, etc.)

    I will provide healthy meals and a comfortable sleeping area in this unique one of a kind, rustic villa.

    A little bit about myself: I’m a visual designer and artist by education and work-life experience. I have traveled the world and lived abroad a few times. I have a multicultural family that visits my farm from time to time. My work (besides the house) is all online, location-independent, and international.

  • Unterkunft


    The house has two bedrooms for guests. I have lots of beds since I run retreats from time to time, but I’m looking for a few volunteers only. If you are a couple, you can share the bedroom upstairs that has two beds. I am open to any arrangements.

    I have a yoga studio and mats for you to do your practice any time you need. My place has easy access to anywhere since it’s just 1 km away from the commute. The train takes just 10 minutes to the nearby city of Riihimäki. From there you can visit all the attractions you wish. There are swimming places nearby: a river with a swimming area and a deck just 2 km away. A very beautiful lake with a swimming area and a deck is just 6 km away. I have two bikes you can borrow. The grocery shop, pizzeria, and post office are in the village, just two km away from the house.
