Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Southern Finland your home away from home

Southern Finland is a stunningly beautiful area with an archipelago of islands which offer a host of attractions and places to visit. The Helsinki region is surrounded by forests and lakes just a short drive from the city centre. Southern Finland is the most densely populated area of the country with most of Finland's population living in the main cities. The area has a rich historical and cultural heritage making it the ideal base for exploring from a holiday rental in Southern Finland.

Things to Do in Southern Finland

Visitors staying in Southern Finland will find at least one of the historic routes close to their holiday rental. Drive along the Ox Road of Hame or the 14th century King's Road to explore some of Finland's history as well as plenty of bird watching and wildlife.The forested areas are ideal for hiking and biking amidst glorious scenery although bug repellant is necessary to keep mosquitoes at bay. The fjords are home to a host of birds and marine life. Boat trips and ferry rides reveal the beautiful landscape. In the winter, snow sports activities can be enjoyed with plenty of warm clothing.

Places to Visit Around Southern Finland

One of the main attractions to visit from your South Finland holiday rental is the Ox Road of Hame. It runs from the river landscapes of West Finland to the Forest of Hame and has been a major route since the Vikings, more than 1000 years ago. Explore the medieval churches, picturesque villages and delightful old seaports for a taste of the real Finland. The Archipelago Trail is in south west Finland and is enjoyed by around 20,000 tourists every year. The route offers 190km of highways and 50km of waterways amidst some of the area's loveliest scenery. Helsinki is a miniature St Petersburg with some splendid architecture including the Lutheran Cathedral. The Suomenlinna sea fortress was built for defense against Russia in the mid 1700s. There is also an open-air museum and several parks making Helsinki a great day out from your Southern Finland holiday rental.

Despite its cold and snowy winters, Finland has warm and sunny summers with daytime highs reaching 25-30°C (77-86°F). Summer days are very long in this "Land of the Midnight Sun" although the sun barely appears during the winter months. Temperatures can drop as low as -20°C (-4°F) or lower from December to March. Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the seasons.

                                                                Fantastic location, quiet neighborhood but close to downtown and just a block from the sea. Nicely supplied with dishes, wifi, linens etc. While the apartment techically sleeps 4, it is quite small. Best for 2 or perhaps 3 persons. The main bed is quite comfortable but the 3rd and 4th are not. Ok for a short stay but not longer. Perfect for a couple, even for a longer stay.
