Our Neighbourhood

We live in Espoo, Tapiola, which is located 20 minutes by car from downtown of Helsinki. If you don't want to drive yourself, there ia a bus stop just 50 meters away with a bus connection every 10-20 minutes. Our house (with 3 other similar houses on the same plot) belong to a so called "Architectural Walkway" of Tapiola and they represent the modern architecture within this walkway. We have made home exchange with architects, and they all liked staying here. We have a small garden surrounding the house where you can barbeque and eat outside, just enough to enjoy the summer evenings. You can walk to the centre of Tapiola, where you can go for shopping or find some restaurants. The nearest convenient store is located only five minutes away. The ocean is 10 minutes away with the car. If you want to explore further away, it is possible to take the ferry across to Stockholm, Sweden, and a fast ferry (2.5 hours) to Tallinn in Estonia (see for example www.silja.com). It is also possible to travel with a direct train connection to St. Petersburg in Russia. Daytrips from Helsinki include Porvoo, a picturesque small village within a boat trip (or car drive). My personal number one destination during the summer is Fiskars, a nice little artists' village with good restaurants, interesting exhibitions and galleries. Our guests have also enjoyed the archipelago in western parts of Finland, especially Nauvo.
