Our home

We have an idyllic house built in the late 50's with a good size garden and a terrace viewing a small field. The house is in three floors. Ground floor: a small verandah, kitchen, toilet, dining-room and living-room with piano and an entrance to the terrace. On the terrace there is a big all-year-round outdoor spa (jacuzzi). Upstairs: 2 bedrooms with toilet. Basement: 1 bedroom with a large plasma-tv, bathroom and a sauna. We have a lovely garden with flowers, outdoorfurniture under appletrees and a small grill for barbeque. Lots of room for children to play. The house is not extensively large but has everything you need for 4 adults plus children.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Porvoo is Finland's second oldest town. Our house is situated near the town center (500 meters to the center, 300 meters to the cathedral), just beside the Old Town of Porvoo with fantastic possibilities for shopping and sightseeing (tourism.porvoo.fi/en). Despite the fact that we live so near the center our house has a countryfeel, the neighbourhood is very peaceful and cousy (very scandinavian) with nice neighbours and a small field where they grow grain. Porvoo is a small but lively cultural town with lovely and historical atmosphere. We have great biking and hiking routes. You can also enjoy the archipelago and the river and go canoeing, fishing, rent a privat boat or take a boat-trip from Porvoo to Helsinki or just an archipelago-sightseeing cruise. HELSINKI is just 45 minutes away with great busconnections. You can also make a sidetrip to ESTONIA (several ferries daily, very easy!) or STOCKHOLM. We will gladly offer guidance. Or take the kids and drive to Puuhamaa (www.puuhamaa.fi), less than an hour drive.
