Modern wooden house in Hämeenlinna, southern Finland

Dear Intervac friends! We are are a family of six: Sami, Sanna and children aged 13, 11, 9 and 7 years.

Have you heard of Angry Birds, Jean Sibelius and the light summer nights? Come and experience this and many other Finnish curiosities!
We live in a typical Finnish wooden house, built 2007. We have 140m2 in two floors, there is a bbq area in the back yard. Our house is equipped with all mod cons and there is enough space for two families to accommodate. For children you’ll find lots of Legos, puzzles, PS3 etc. As most Finns do, we also have our own sauna free to use as many times you wish for. The area is very peaceful but central. There are two lakes very close by for swimming and forest with trekking paths start just next to our back yard. Ahvenisto activity park (swimming pool and lake, climbing and other sport activities available) within 10 min bicycle journey.

You can reach Hämeenlinna city by bicycles, public transportation or by car. Interesting cities such as Tampere (Angry Birds- amusement park), Turku (Moomin valley) and the capital Helsinki are are all in a 1-1,5h driving distance. There are excellent train connections available. The National Park Evo is also worth visiting. Places like Tallinn and Stockolm can be visited within 1-2 days.

Besides plenty of lake district and beautiful nature Hämeenlinna has the medieval castle and churches to visit. In Aulanko area you’ll find numerous activities to do: not to mention spa and inland cruises. Whether you like sports, culture, restaurants or just hanging around Hämeenlinna will not let you down.

Airports of Helsinki-Vantaa and Tampere-Pirkkala are both within 1h driving distance.

We are open both for simultaneous and non-simultaneous change. Our car Renault GrandScenic (fits 7) can be changed in both situations as we’ll manage some time our daily life without car. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. In our home you can stay as it would be yours and we´d like to take good care of yours.
