Property description

This is the only cottage on a 600 m scenic cape. It is located near a nature reserve with hundreds of islands, which you can reach by boat or by skiing. In the autumn, there are lots of berries and mushrooms around the villa and on the islands. It is ideal for nature trekking in all seasons. Rowing boat is included in the rent. An outboard motor for rent by 80 Euro per week. Rubber boat for children. Sport ground and sport equipment for instance football, badminton, basket ball, table tennis, darts, boxing punch bag with gloves, swing, petanque, and croquet. There is a separate sauna building with cosy fireplace, barbecue pavilion. A guest house next to the main building for up to five sleeping places, additional rent. If you don't need the guest house, there will be no others either.

The lake: Lake Suontee (or Suonne) is over 30 km in length. The water is pure and crystal clear. The villa is situated by the southern part of Suontee, which is one of the most important areas of lake nature protection in Finland.

Fishing: Angling is free to everybody. For the guests of Akseli, fishing areas are large and you can fish with different kinds of methods. Bring your own equipment. For other types of fishing than angling you need to pay only the general national license (10 €/ week or 24 €/ year) to any bank or post office. Local licenses are already paid for you by the host. An ice drill is available for ice angling etc. You can also order fish from local fishermen.
