The space
PEACE AND QUIET, STILL CLOSE TO SERVICES

Villa Aurelia is located in Kuusamo, in the scenery of Lapland's wilderness. The villa is located by a small lake near Oulanka National Park. The area is very peaceful and quiet. Most likely you won't meet anyone nearby, but you may meet for example reindeer and waterfowl. With no traffic or street lights nearby, enjoy the breathtaking sky full of stars and the Milky Way galaxy, and if you are lucky, also unforgettable Northern Lights.

The nearest, very small village (Käylä) is 5 km away, where you will find a grocery store, a gas station, and in the summer, rafting and fishing services. Other activities (see below) and services (restaurants, supermarkets, Ruka / Kuusamo center) are only 15-30 min. ride.

EASY TO ARRIVE

You will need a car to arrive and easily enjoy all the natural attractions and activities in the area. You can rent a car from airports.

The nearest airport is Kuusamo Airport (KAO), which is about a half-hour drive away. Other options: Rovaniemi Airport (RVN) ca. 2,5 hours, and Oulu Airport (OUL) ca. 3 hours.

Roads in Finland are well maintained all year round. Driving on the snowy roads of winter is rather easy and safe but you need to drive very carefully. Also watch out for reindeer that wander the roads of the area all year round.

BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATIONS

A beautiful suite upstairs includes a romantic master bedroom and balcony with amazing view towards northern lights, as well as lounge area, dressing area and a desk for laptop. During autumn and winter, if you're lucky, you may witness northern lights and in the summer time you can admire the midnight sun above the lake. The mattress in the main bedroom bed adapts to the body and gives you a restful sleep.

Downstairs there are two bedrooms. One of them (pianoroom) has open window wall towards living room. The window wall can be closed with a curtain.

There are curtains and eye masks in every bedroom so you can sleep well also in bright summer nights.

Sheets and towels are included in the price.

Double bed widths: upstairs master bedroom 160 cm queen-size bed, downstairs bedroom 2x80 / 160 cm beds (2 separate beds or as a double bed, as you wish) and in the piano room a narrow 120 cm bed, length 200cm. 2 air mattresses as additional beds, width 70 cm, length 190 cm.

The main house is 40 meters away and the sauna building is 15 meters away from the lake.

The floor plans of the main house and the lakeside sauna can be found in the pictures of the announcement!

MODERN EQUIPMENT

The kitchen is fully equipped with e.g. dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, cooking facilities, coffee brewer, French press coffee maker, water boiler, toaster, dinnerware, etc. Table is for 6, also additional chairs.

The main house has air conditioning and heating/cooling and fireplace. Free Wi-Fi. With smart-Tv you may access your own media accounts e.g. Netflix, Viaplay, HBO etc. There is a carport for one car, heating electricity available also for additional cars.

In the bathroom there is a shower corner and hot tub and also a washer-dryer machine.

Children set e.g. high chair, dinnerware, bib, potty, bed, etc.

LAKESIDE SAUNA AND BEACH WITH ROWING BOAT AND CAMPFIRE

Sauna is in a separate lakeside building. The lakeside sauna is a traditional Finnish sauna which is heated with firewood. In the sauna there is no shower, only cold water comes from the tap and the cold water is heated with a water cauldron with firewood, wash basins and water ladles are used for bathing. During bathing, in a traditional Finnish way, you may go out for a swim in the lake (in winter in a hole the ice!), roll in the snow or just have fresh air and drink on the veranda.

The water of the villa and the lakeside sauna comes from own well.

The water of the lake is crystal clear. The ground of the lake is rocky, softer sand on the beach. Rowing boat with electric motor.

On the lakeside campfire place you may grill with open fire. Also an electric barbecue and electric smoke oven available.

A LOT TO DO

At the villa you can enjoy total peace and quiet, sauna, lyrical moments on rowing boat trips as well as fishing. In the nearby forests you can collect northern superfood berries and mushrooms in the late summer and autumn. Directly on the other side of our lake there is Ronttivaara Hill, where you can take a walk and admire the idyllic views. In the winter you can also walk or ski traditionally without pre-made trails on the ice of the lake. We have snowshoes and poles (for 2 people), sleds, and indoor and outdoor toys and games.

Within a short drive (15-30 min) there are plenty of excursion spots of the stunning Oulanka National Park trails (Kiutaköngäs, Small bear, Ristikallio, Konttainen, Valtavaara trails), Käylänkoski rapids, husky safaris, reindeer safaris, snowmobile safaris, horse riding, bear watching, fat tyre biking, and at Ruka ski resort a wide variety of ski slopes and restaurants. Also a popular photography destination Riisitunturi National Park as well as Holiday Club spa, and the Salla Ski Resort with Ice Restaurant and activity services are only ca. 30-40 min drive away.

I give tips for local activity service providers and I can also help with reservations if needed.

Aloitin airbnb-majoittajana pari vuotta sitten, kun aloin vuokraamaan Kuusamon huvilaamme. Vuokranantajana toimimisesta (airbnb:n ulkopuolella) minulla on kokemusta lähes 20 vuotta. Vieraideni viihtyminen on minulle todella tärkeää! Haluan pitää huvilan hyvässä ja siistissä kunnossa ja autan matkasuunnittelussa esim. paikallisten vinkkien avulla. Asumme Helsingissä, joten henkilökohtaisten tapaamisten sijaan voimme olla yhteydessä airbnb-viesteillä ja/tai puhelimitse. Toivon, että viihdytte iki-ihanassa Kuusamossa ja Villa Aureliassa! I started as an airbnb-host about a couple of year ago, renting our villa in Kuusamo. As a host / landlord (outside Airbnb) I have experience for almost 20 years. It is very important to me that my guests enjoy their stay! I want to keep the villa in good and clean condition, and help guests with travel planning, for example, by providing local tips. We live in Helsinki, Southern Finland, so instead of meeting in person let's be in touch via Airbnb messages and/or mobile phone. I hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Lapland and Villa Aurelia!

During your stay
I live in Helsinki, Southern Finland so most of the times I can't be in Kuusamo to meet you in person but I'll be available via airbnb messages and phone any time. I speak Finnish, English and a little bit Swedish and Germany.

The keys are delivered to you easily via a key box at the villa. We have prepared instructions for easy usage of fireplace, sauna and machines etc. In case you'd like to have personal assistance at the premises, we'll ask the caretaker of the villa come to help you.
