    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We work with a lot of researchers from all over the world, and the area is very close to Helsinki. So expect people in and out all the time, but of course plenty of time by yourself.

    Plenty of lakes around here to swimm, horses and rivers.

    One kitchen is shared. Two others private.

    Basic food supplies are provided (salt, oil, sugar, etc.) but all the rest of the food is taken cared by each one. Visits to the supermarket are frequent but also doable by bike.
