About the property

It is very quiet and ideally located. It features all modern conveniences and is tastefully decorated. We offer reduced rates for longer stays. The flat is equipped with a sauna and a new heating system.

The setting is wonderful, both in summer and in winter. Come fish trout, lavaret, and pike in the shade. It is a perfect area for rod fishing in the lakes...Enjoy hiking both in summer and in winter and, of course, alpine skiing or cross-country skiing from November to April.

It is 180 km away from Rovaniemi where you can meet Santa Claus.

In summer, you can gather mushrooms, bilberries, cranberries and Arctic berries...

During the winter, you can watch aurora displays (very numerous over the last years).

In Oulanka National Park, enjoy a few sections of an 80-km hike and wonderful landscapes.

A wonderful little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect setting for a winter getaway. With ski tracks at the doorstep, the ski village just a couple of km away, and a cozy fireplace to curl up in front of at night, everything you could need is handy, for a short stay or a long stay.

Extraordinaire endroit

  • 5 of 5

Superbe chalet situé dans un cadre agréable, à proximité d’une station de ski, d’un lac gelé pour faire ses balades à raquettes et ski de fond.

L’intérieur est très agréable, confortable et chaleureux, très bien équipé avec tout le nécessaire pour passer un bon séjour.

Tout le monde était ravi de rentrer le soir dans cet endroit douillet à siroter au coin du feu un bon chocolat chaud.

Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et ont toujours été à l’écoute de nos besoins. Le cousin du propriétaire, rencontré sur place était très présent pour que notre séjour se passe parfaitement.

L’idéal pour passer de merveilleuses vacances pour un excellent rapport/qualité prix.

Nous, on a adoré!

Des vacances merveilleuses dans ce chalet idéalement situé, près d'une station de ski, à quelques pas d'un lac, au calme. L'intérieur est superbe car très chaleureux, avec tout le nécessaire pour contribuer à notre confort. Quel plaisir de se retrouver près d'un feu de cheminée après avoir passé de longues heures à l'extérieur dans un froid glacial. Nous étions une famille dont 2 enfants, heureux de réaliser notre rêve de séjourner agréablement en Laponie mais aussi très triste de quitter ce havre de paix car oui, on y était bien!

Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques, toujours à l'écoute et sans compter leur cousin et son épouse, des gens adorables que l'on a eu plaisir de rencontrer sur place, toujours soucieux de notre bien être.

Un super lieu de vacances que je vous recommande vivement.

We had a marvelous summer vacation at the cottage. We rented it for the last week of July and the first two weeks of August. We experienced the white nights when it never gets dark and watched the night forest as the summer evenings slowly melted into long mornings, skipping the night. The cottage is absolutely comfortable and the landlord is friendly, sweet, thoughtful, intelligent and very very helpful. Reindeer come almost every day to the patio of the hut with their large branching antlers, and their puppies with a cute little white tail. There are several national parks at a short driving distance from the cottage. We didn't rent a car for the whole stay because one can take many hiking trails which aren't far from the house. But the national parks are the greatest treat... One gets the feeling of never ending pure nature, lakes without houses and endless forests without people. It actually never gets too cold in the summer and we had many sunny days. We thought mosquitoes would be a nuisance but no, it wasn't too bad. Most of the time we didn't even need the mosquito repellent spray. It was one of our best vacation.
