The property is owned by a Finnish-American family living in London.

Mikko Arevuo purchased this house in 2008

The residence was designed as a heaven to escape the hustle and bustle of modern city living. The picturesque location is beautiful all year round.

The property incorporates all modern conveniences to ensure total relaxation. The villa has been built by using the latest allergy free building materials and it incorporates a self contained fresh and waste water system throughout. Fresh water is sourced from a 60 meter deep enclosed well.

The residence is furnished throughout by modern Scandinavian designers including Alvar Aalto and Arne Jacobsen.

The villa is conveniently located with 40 minutes' drive away from Tampere-Pirkkala international airport, and 30 minutes' drive from the Tampere city centre.

Grocery shopping and a village bar/restaurant in Kammenniemi is 6 km away.

Stunning Finnish Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Stunning architectural home located on a secluded lake not far from Tempere (90 minutes by train from Helsinki). Perfect for anyone with an appreciation for design or architecture. Home is beautifully and delicately constructed, a seamless integration of nature and old Scandinavian aesthetics. It's remarkable to find such a gem available for rent.

Home is actually three separate buildings: one bedroom and an office are slightly detached; the sauna (its own architectural masterpiece) is next to the lake. All buildings are sensitively integrated into the landscape. Windows in all spaces are placed to maximize the indoor/outdoor balance.

As one would expect with such a cutting edge "cabin," appliances and controls are cutting edge. It took us a bit to figure out the cryptic heating controls, wood-stove draft, and dishwasher. But it was all a part of the Finnish adventure, and quite manageable thanks to the responsive owner and attentive caretaker.

Gracious and welcoming owner provided excellent guidance on the local town of Tempere--a Finnish gem of a town--as well as information on transportation to and from the home and sauna culture.

It was a privilege to spend time at Villa Kitula.

Modern Holiday Home on the Shores of Lake Nasijarvi, Tampere | View Property Tampere, Finland.

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 couples and we had a magnificent stay of 1 week. A beautiful and peaceful setting. A car is essential. The listing and photos were accurate. The property is almost new and well maintained and clean. The owner was delightful and bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and provide useful information plus answer our questions. There was a comprehensive user guide at the house. The house is in a rural setting by a beautiful lake and certainly we would recommend it to anyone looking for that type of experience. Because this is a rural setting, you have to go to Tampare for most supplies and urban activities - about 30 minutes by car. Tampare is a lovely city with lots of things to do. Our first visit to Finland. We are in love with the people and the country and hope to go back soon.

Beautiful and peaceful week on the lake

  • 5 of 5
Frankly, given the quality of this house, I'm amazed the owner even allows anyone else to use it. It is in flawless condition, spotless, everything functioning beautifully. Having rented many ramshackle and falling-down cottages over the years, it was an unexpected joy to spend a week in a house that had no defects at all. The owner had been tremendously thoughtful towards his tenants - he left helpful maps, some basic supplies, and gave us the phone number of his caretaker in case of problems. The location is spectacular. We spent hours in the sauna, leaving only at intervals to fling ourselves off the end of the dock into the lake. My only reservation about this house is that staying there with children might be mildly stressful because the interior is so utterly unblemished.

The property is located 30 km from the City of Tampere on the shores of Lake Nasijarvi. Näsijärvi is the biggest lake in the Tampere region at 256 square kilometres in size. There are boat cruising and guided fishing services on the lake. During the winter the lake is frozen in its entirety. Näsijärvi is then used for Nordic walking, cross-country skiing, and snow mobiling. The house is in a quiet rural location, but a village bar and a grocery store is only 4 km away.
