Villa Paratiisi (Paradise) in Vihti is the perfect place to relax and live like locals; to experience the way Finnish people spend time in their summer cottages. The cottage is located by a peaceful lake, neighbouring the Nuuksio national park, just half an hour drive from Helsinki airport. You can stay overnight , have sauna and enjoy nature in different ways with us.
The main building has a spacious and atmospheric living room with a fireplace and a bedroom with two beds. On the premises we have two cottages where a total of nine persons can stay overnight. The wood heated sauna is located in the main house. We have a campfire just by the lake and a covered terrace for dinners. We provide the catering, we are specialised on wild food and prepare most of the food by open fire: salmon, game, wild mushrooms, herbs and berries.
We organise versatile nature activities: summertime you can use the canoes or rowing boats on the lake, we’ll go hiking in the woods, picking berries and mushrooms. Wintertime we can go by kicksledge or snowshoes across the frozen lake. We can do ice-fishing and ice-swimming. We have a traditional Lapp teepee with a campfire suitable for lunch or a coffee brake while enjoying Finnish folk music and traditional songs. We are specialised in Finnish traditions and with us you can experience the nature in a unique way. You can explore the myths of the King of the Forest, the bear, or have a particular trip of Kalevala (the Finnish epic) in the woods.
You are most warmly welcome to experience the magic in Nuuksio with us!
