About Erja Laine

We are Erja and Arto Laine, farmers from the municipality of Hattula which is located in the middle of south Finland. We have two adult daughters and a teenaged son. Our own home, the main farm house of the estate, is located 2 km from the cottages. We are a small family company and we are dedicated to offer you friendly and unique service. We are looking forward to having you as our guest in our cottages as well as in Finland.

Why Erja Laine chose Southern Finland

Arto’s family have had this farm since the late 1800's, and we have continued farming since 1994. The cottage called Kaisla (Bulrush) was completed in the spring of 2007, and another one, called Lumme (Waterlily), by the end of the same year. This our newest luxury holiday villa was completed in January 2012. The versatile culture environment in the Vanajavesi valley was formed during centuries. Due to its fertile surroundings, the Vanajavesi waterway has provided a favourable place for inhabitation. The first farmers lived in this area as early as in the Iron Age. There has been a prosperous manor house culture with fine parks since the Middle Ages. The oldest cottages by lake Vanajavesi were built in the 1800’s.

What makes this cottage unique

Ridges, lakes, fields, forests and marshes are typical of the landscape. As the phrase goes; Finland is the land of a thousands lakes. The beautiful Lake Vanajavesi is 31st largest lake. Kriipi’s island and the surrounding water area included in the Finnish Natura 2000 network of nature protection areas. Here you can also observe a variety of birds, such as ducks, terns, great crested grebes and swans. Deer, elks and foxes are common in this area. At dusk, there are tailed deer moving near the cottages. After you have been in an original wood stove sauna and swum in the lake or rolled in the snow, you’ll understand why Finns love the sauna.

A gem in the deep forest of Finland

  • 5 of 5

The cottages lies 1 1/2 hours drive from Helsinki. A perfect distance for a day trip to this nice city.

We arrived late (almost midnight). Even at that time we had a personal and warm welcome. Erja showed us the cottage and explained everything.

Erja is a perfect host and takes good care of her visitors.

The cottage is a gem. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the Fire Stove Sauna is beautiful.

I can recommend this nice place and if it goes back to Finland one day, I already know where I want to stay.

A very nice holiday

  • 5 of 5

It 'was a really good holiday. The cottage is beautiful. Equipped with all the comforts. Spotless. In a splendid setting. Erja, the owner, was very kind and always available. A small flaw, but not important, it is the noise of the nearby highway that you feel when you are out (from the inside can not hear anything).

The cottage is close to roads and services but in the woods (we saw a deer, squirrels, swans, rabbits).

We strongly recommend this place.

wonderfullhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a short holiday in Finland for a wedding and stayed at a wonderfull house. Like you see in advertisements, on a lake with our own rowingboat, swimming location, fireplace, picknick place, veranda and of course our own sauna! A very nice house for 6 persons, 3 bedrooms. A very big livingroom with a view on the lake. A well equiped kitchen a big tv incluiding a game computer, but we did'nt have time for that. The Glass factory of iitala very close by (20 minute drive by car trough the woods) and the pitorekse town Hameenlinna nearby (20 minutes by car via the E12) with its castle by the lake and a beautiful park: Aulanko.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

We decided to hire the cottage for a week to enjoy a relaxing getaway for our honeymoon and we couldn't have made a better choice. The location is fantastic with a beautiful view over the lake and all the facilities that you could ask for in the cottage. The location in the woodland was glorious, with easy access to the motorway by car allowing you to use it as an excellent base for day trips to the beautiful countryside and places of interest. Each evening we made sure to return home for the spectacular sunsets over the lake at night, made even better with a barbecue and/or camp fire. With all the local amenities you could ask for just a short drive away, but being located in such beautiful isolation, we really couldn't have asked for more!
