EASY-TO-REACH LOCATION ETC. FROM HELSINKI, THE LAKE KNOWN FOR GREAT FISHING, SOUTHERN FINLAND

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Southern Finland - Luxury Villa Lepolahti Is A Guest House That Meets The Most Demanding Tastes For Luxurious Living

Sleeps 6/8. 3 bedrooms. Villa Lepolahti was completed in January 2012. It is a luxury guest house by Lake Vanajavesi, known for great fishing. Vanajavesi Valley is one of the most beautiful national views in Finland. The central location of the villa enables you to choose from a wide range of leisure activities all year round. Villa Lepolahti is easy to reach; near excellent road connections, and only an hour’s drive away from the busiest airports and harbours in Southern Finland.

Kriipi’s guest houses are located in the heart of the unique landscape of the Häme region in the middle of Southern Finland. The lake Vanajavesi is known for great fishing and it is one of the largest lakes in Finland, the land of a thousand lakes. Kriipi’s island and the surrounding water areas are included in the Finnish Natura 2000 areas, network of nature protection areas. Vanajavesi begins from south side of Hämeenlinna town and finishes to Tampere town. Area of the lake is 120 km2. The lake has almost hundred islands. After you have been to the villa’s original wood-stove sauna by the lake, and perhaps even taken a dip in the lake or rolled in the snow, you will understand why Finns love the sauna experience so dearly.

Note:

Suitable for children and families. The cottages are also suitable for allergic persons; therefore pets are not allowed and smoking is not allowed inside the cottages. The number of people using the cottage must not exceed the number of sleeping places (6 adults +2 children). Tents and caravans are not permitted on the guest house premises. The nearby motorway, about 1km may cause some traffic noise (depending of wind) on the yard of the villas. To make sure the cottage is clean when you arrive, we always charge for a final clean-up. We offer a free internet connection (WLAN) to our guests.

Further Details:

Ridges, lakes, fields, forests, and marches are typical of the landscape in the Häme region. Kriipi’s island and the surrounding water areas are included in the Finnish Natura 2000 areas, network of nature protection areas.

The versatile cultural environment of the Vanajavesi valley has been formed during centuries. Due to its fertile surroundings, the Vanajavesi waterway has proven to be a favourable centre for inhabitation. The first farmers have inhabited this area as early as in the Iron Age. Many prosperous manor houses with fine parks have enriched the region since the Middle Ages. The oldest summer houses by the lake Vanajavesi were built in the 1800’s.

Here you can also observe a variety of water birds, such as ducks, terns, great crested grebes and swans. Deer, elks, and foxes are common in this area. At dusk, you can spot white-tailed deer moving near the cottages.

The guest houses are located next to the outdoor area Tenhola hills. On the Tenhola hills you can find exquisite hiking routes. There are many nice trails and paths, as old as the hills, that people from the region have used in the course of centuries. New trails have been made, too, but most of them follow the same routes that people have walked on for thousands of years, perhaps even more. Nowadays the trails in the Tenhola forest area are as wide as highways were in the Middle Ages.

In Finland, everybody has right to walk in a forest and pick berries and mushrooms (this is included in the statutory everyman’s rights). On the hills there are ideal possibilities for it. The berry season ranges from July to August, and mushrooms can be found from August to the end of October.

The large lake Vanajavesi provides excellent possibilities for fishing all year round.

The nearest city (16 km) Hämeenlinna is also located by the lake Vanajavesi. Hämeenlinna is the oldest town in the interior of Finland.

Stunning villa and location

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is simply amazing. Furnished and equipped to the highest standard and with the most stunning views across the lake. It is brilliantly designed with enough space for everybody .. yet areas for family togetherness too. This was a holiday that we really did not want to end.

Nestled by the lake, the villa has a perfect location. We were treated to glorious sunsets across the water. The villa comes with a rowing boat for added fun and the chance to explore the nearby island. We didn't book the optional electric outboard motor ... but next time we will for more long range exploration.

We soon found our way around the area and it was easy to pop out in the car to the local shop for supplies. The villa was a good base for exploring the wider region too. We even jumped on a train at nearby Toijala to visit Turku .. If you haven't explored Helsinki the train is a good option for going there too. Book in advance online for amazingly cheap rail fares compared to the UK .. the teenagers went for free on an already discounted adult ticket!

It was an easy drive from Helsinki Airport .. and we were able to pick up supplies along the way from the large supermarket at Hämeenlinna. (an advance look at Google Street View made this first piece of navigation very easy)

Communication with the owners ahead of the holiday was excellent and we were warmly welcomed on the day.

We hope to return to this villa in the future and if you are considering visiting Finland then we can recommend it to you.

Spectacular Finnish Lake house

  • 5 out of 5
My family rented his luxury house on Lake Vanajavesi for the month of July. The location was perfect, great views of the lake at all hours of the day and night!... Fully equipped household meant we came with very little luggage and all our needs were met. The sauna, every night, was the highlight of the day, ending with a swim in the lake. We rowed every day out the islands and barbecued on the terrace. It was calm, perfect for bird watching; we kayaked and explored the area on bike and by foot. My grandmother came from Finland and much of what she talked about as the best of the Finnish character and landscape was here. I highly recommend this location to those exploring roots or wishing the ideal Finnish lake experience.. Not to be forgotten... Our hosts anticipated our every need and make living here as seamless as possible. Wonderful!
