Comfortable Countryside Cottages close to Helsinki

Our two cottages are located just 45 minutes by car from the centre of Helsinki, in the beautiful countryside close to Siuntio church village. Cottages offer marvellous views of the Siuntio River valley – one visitor calls it a “miniature paradise”. Walking along the path by the river is like diving into the wilderness – you could even meet an otter… The distant roar of the rapids, the concert of birdsong or that cozy moment by the fireplace after activities in the snow all drive away those everyday concerns.

Snowy Silence - Wintertime Accommodation

If you’re looking for a place to calm down, take an escape from the rush of the city. Niittyniemi Cottages offers you an opportunity for total relaxation and silence. In the wintertime you can find a moment of peace in here - the only sound you’ll hear is the gentle ripple of the river nearby. It will be just you, and the nature.

Pellas Marina - Archipelago experience

Take a break in Lappo. Accomodate comfortably in Pellas Marina, and give yourself time to catch up and relax. We belive the best way to do this is to spend time in the nature.
