Our home

Our home is an architecturally designed detached house in a quiet residential neighbourhood of Rauma on the West Coast of Finland. The bedrooms and toilets are all on the ground floor. The high-ceilinged living/dining room, the open plan kitchen and familyroom as well the sauna & shower room are on a slightly higher level (up 4 steps), but still on the ground floor.

The well-equipped kitchen has underfloor heating, as does the family room and shower. Adding to the comfortable living are the air source
heat pump and a lovely fireplace in the family room.

Our house is available for you the whole year around, even during the winter time,but the best months to come to Finland are from MAY to SEPTEMBER (or if you like snow: from January to March:=)!). WE PREFER to travel abroad in April and March or in September and October, because we do not want to be away from our summerhouse(=our second home) during the beautiful,warm and sunny summer time in Finland!
So,we are open to the possibility of non simultaneous exchange!

Your neighbourhood

Rauma is a picturesque seaside town (approx.40 000 inhab.)with plenty of history.
The old town centre ("Old Rauma") is the largest unified historical wooden town in the Nordic Countries and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site! There are 600 buildings,mainly dated from the 18th and 19th century and nearly 200 shops!

Our house is located approx. 3 km (1,9 miles)from the market square in the heart of Old Rauma, and it´s just a stone´s throw away (300 meters/
328 yards)from the sea. There is even a small clean beach approx.500 m
(547 yd) away from our house. We have nice and friendly neighbours,who can help you under your stay, if needed.

In Rauma you can get by without a car as pretty much everything is located within a walking distance or a leisure bike-away.There is plenty to see in the idyllic Old Rauma,where people still live,work and trade.There are 600 buildings,mainly from the 18th and 19th century,along the narrow winding streets of the old town centre-and nearly 200 shops.

PLACES of INTEREST: the Church of Holy Cross(built in the late 15th
century as the church of the former Franciscan monastery).The Rauma Museum (operates in the Old Town Hall dating from 1776) and Art Museum and Rauma Maritime Museum.

Rauma is also famous for its lace,and the "Rauma Lace Week" is organised every July. Lace and Handicrafts are still the central focus of the event,but there are also all kinds of things to do for both young and old.
