  • Descripción


    We are 2 adults and 2 children (born 2006 and 2010) family in East-Finland. Parents name are Hannu (father) and Päivi-Saarai (nickname Bäle, mother). We live in a farmhouse with sheeps, dogs, cats and rabbits. We need help with house work, wood cutting, decluttering, gardening, taking care of animals, cleaning, cooking, building and art projects. This is great opportunity to learn about Finland, make friends, learn languages, have an adventure and enjoy of fresh air and pure nature.

  • Alojamiento


    There's many options of accommodation, and summer time we can host 10-20 visitors at the same time. At the winter we can host 2-8 visitors at the same time. Feel free to talk to us about your requirements of accommodation. We have:

    A wooden cabin:
    1km away from the main house. 6 beds, fire place and sauna. No electicity or running water. A pound where you can bring water and outside eco-toilet. Middle in the forrest.

    We can drive it where you want (closer or far from the main house, depends how much you want space and silence around you). 4 beds, toilet, shower, kitchen (electricity only near the main house). Winter use only sleeping and toilet is working (water will freeze) and only for short stay.

    Sleeping house:
    It's an outdoor building made only for sleeping. There is no heating system, so it can be used only summer time. There is electricity but no inside toilet or running water. 10 beds in one big room. It's located near to main house, so you can use toilet and shower in the main house.

    The main house:
    There's 1 extra bedroom for visitors. It's a small room for 1 person or for a couple. But with some special arrangements we can offer more bedrooms, if needed.

    In the main house there's wifi, laudry room, shower, finnish sauna and inside toilets. Of course there's electricity and heating system.

    Algo más...

    This place is in the countryside of a small village called Rautavaara. Near our house there's a beatifull beach, hiking routes and forrest. The nearest small food shops (expencive) are 12km and 19km away.

    Most of the time we can offer a car to drive (without car you are quite stuck in here), but if you don't want to use it, or want to save nature and gasoline, you can also travel in our car when we are going to work. We both work outside of our home, so there's lift to somewhere almost every day. But our place is the most suitable to people who like nature and silence.

    The nearest cities are Nilsiä 39km, Siilinjärvi 65km and Kuopio 85km.

    First you need to come to Kuopio. From Helsinki (capital city) there's airplane, train and bus connections (the bus is quite cheap). From Kuopio we will pick you up, because most of the time there's no public transfer.
