Nice house in Finland near Turku

Now searching swap for summer 2020!


We live in a small village in Lieto in South-Western Finland, only 10 km from Turku. Our house is about 200 square meters in two floors with private garden. WiFi available.

First floor: entrance, well equipped kitchen with table for 6, living room (sofa, dining table for 8, TV, DVD, Xbox + Kinect, chimney), bedroom with double bed, study room (also guitars), toilet, bathroom with sauna, laundry room (washing machine and dryer).

Second floor: living room (sofa bed for 2, TV, balcony with hammock chair), 3 bedrooms (one with double bed 140cm, two with 120cm beds), bathroom with toilet and jacuzzi.

Garden: on the entrance side there is a carport, storage and trampoline. On the side we have currants, apples and plums. In the backyard there is a lovely garden for relaxation at summer time. On the terrace there is a table for 8, bbq, swing, darts, ping pong table and 4 chairs for sun bathing. There is also a pergola with chairs.

Car exchange is also possible (7 seats Opel Zafira, not a brand new but working well) and we have 9 bicycles (5 for adults, two teenage size for boys and one for a child). If you don’t want to use car, there is also a bus connection to Turku (bus stop only 400 meters from the house). Our neighborhood is really peaceful. Nearby (5 min walking) there is a grocery store and grill kiosk. There are lots of forests nearby to go hiking and pick up blueberries and mushrooms. On the school yard nearby you can play frisbee golf, football and basketball (with our equipments). Wintertime if you are lucky with the weather there is very nearby also a place for ice hockey, skating and skiing.

The nearest city Turku is an old capital of Finland with about 170 000 inhabitants. It has the world famous archipelago with thousands of islands. You can have many kinds of short or long tours to the islands with bicycle, motorbike or car – or just take popular ferry cruise from Turku to some island or even take a big cruise ship all the way to Stockholm. Tourist info in Turku can also help you to plan these tours. Turku is beautiful with a river running through the city. There are many nice cafes and restaurants and in the summertime many happenings like medieval days (next year 28th June-1st July 2018) and music festivals (for example In Turku there are also good possibilities for shopping and for your cooking you can get good ingredients from bigger supermarkets, market hall and market square. And of course Turku is the place for night life with interesting pubs like “Old Bank”, “Old Pharmacy” and "Old School”… For family fun Turku has for example Flowpark, Kupittaa adventure park, two public outdoor swimming places, small waterpark and 20 km from Turku in Naantali there is famous Moominworld and Väski adventure island. There are several free beaches within 20 min driving. If you want to visit our capital Helsinki, you can take a train or bus from Turku and it takes only 2 hours to get there. If you are interested to see also other parts in Finland, we are glad to help you. Turku has an airport with some flight connections to Europe or you can have a connecting flight from Helsinki to Turku. If not, there is a good bus/train connection from Helsinki airport to Turku. Our house is 15min drive from Turku airport/ bus station/ railway station. From Sweden direction you can reach Turku by ferry, also with car.

We have a dog, Lancashire Heeler, but she is not going to host you during your stay. If you stay here in summer and there is no rain, we would be happy if you could give some water to flowers. In winter, if you are lucky to have snow, you can do the “snow work” (take the snow away from the entrances in the garden). That is all the house work for you. We can have extra help also for that, if you take longer tours away from the house. Climate in Finland varies a lot. In Southern Finland we can have very mild winters with hardly any snow, but some years there is a lot of snow – you can never know it beforehand. Best time to look for beautiful summer is from June to August. And if you want to experience the nightless nights, best time is mid June-mid July.
