Our home

We offer a large house in a quiet neighbourhood close to the center of Helsinki, ideal for a family with children who wants both outdoors and urban living. It's a 1920 wooden house with a lot of history, charm and comfort. We have one master bedroom, two child's bedroom, and a bathroom upstairs. The living and dining rooms, each with a fireplace, are downstairs with the kitchen and guest room. The kitchen was just renovated around the wooden stove. There's also a nice garden, so all in all it's a very nice place to enjoy the cold white winters and the bright summers of Finland !

Property features

Who we are

  1. We're a bi-national family of four: our 3-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son have a Finnish mother and French father. We have been in Finland for a few years now but both lived aborad extensively before and are getting a little restless. It is also time for the children to experience French life, so since our consulting business can be run from about anywhere, we're looking to spend six months to a year in the south of France starting this October in what would be our first exchange.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

It's a quiet and very green neigbourhood, protected as a historical landmark, made up of detached homes built in the 20s. It is very close (5km) to the heart of the city and on several tram and bus lines. A full shopping center is a 5min walk away. The sea is one km away, and many jogging/ cycling/ rollerblading/ skiing trails go by. There are also several playgrounds in the immediate vicinity.
