Your neighbourhood

Situated just near the centrum of town ( ca. 80 000 inhabitants), Vaasa is situated near the sea in the lady Finlands left hip from the map. Archipelago nearby is Unesco Natural heritage area, 15 km from us. My ex-husband has a summerhouse on an island near here what I have right to use. Very simple, no eletricity, ideal for nature hiking, sauna, swimming, playing. Can be used maybe for 2 days during stay. Boatride, needs assistance to go there. Vaasa is quiet in the summer, all people are in their summerhouses. Ideal for those who want to enjoy nature, peaceful time, long walkings starting from our house along sea side, really near. Light summers, bright day and night, temparature around 18 to 30 degrees July. Possible to stay here also other times than summer. Long distance skating possible in wintertime,when the sea is free from snow. eqipment possible to have from us. Ice is thick enough to walk, skate or long distance ski from January to end of March.
