Nice, big, old house in Turku, Finland. Turku is situated on the see, in the Southwest part of Finland.

Welcome next to Finland! You can now choose a different country? You can get special, different experiences here in the north. We have snow in winter , but the warm, light summers with long days. The sun doesn´t go down in the middle of summer.

We are two adults from the city Turku, which is the oldest town in Finland (founded 1229). Turku is situated on the sea. (

Our house has 3 floors (about 340 m2).  it is built in 1923 and it is quite modern with many reparations done.  In the upper floor are 3 sleeping rooms and a bathroom, in the middle floor are kitchen,  dining room, living room, and library. Sauna! We have own sauna in the lowest floor and a bathroom, fireplace,  a  room for laundry.

We have a garden (1400 m2) with apple trees, terrace, a little green house, a garage for 2 cars. We have 3 bicyckles. There are many good roads for them in this area.

To the city center is only 3,5 km. You can also walk in 20minutes or by bike in 7 minutes. There are many restaurants on the river Aura in the city, and nice walking areas.
The surrounding of our house is a familyhouse area with old houses. Everything is near; f. ex. shopping, services. Of course you can use our car VolvoV70.
We live in Turku, which is a city with 180.000 inhabitants. Turku is Finlands port to the west. Two times a day there is a ferryboat to Stockholm. You can also make many kind of boat cruises on the see.

Turku archipelago is said to be the most beautiful archipelago in the world! (thousands of little islands) . The see and the harbour is about 6 km from us. There are many lakes here, the nearest is about 3 km from us.

It  takes only 15 minutes to go to the airport of Turku.The railwaystation(Kupittaa) is about 700m from us.Trains to Helsinki go from there.

About 15 km from Turku is a very nice summer city Naantali on the sea with little old wooden houses. It is a sailing city and the Moominworld for children is there. There is also the summer resident of  Finlands president. In the near of us is one spa-hotel Caribia and in Naantali is a luxus superfine spahotel Naantalin Kylpylä. Here in Turku and near of Turku you can do everything and all is near of you. The distances are not long. Of course you can go to the capital of Finland , to Helsinki.
It takes only 1,5 hours to go to Helsinki via the motorway.
Welcome to Turku!
