Walk along the “recreational path”.
Nature has a refreshing effect on humans. Silence instead of constant noise. Fresh air to breathe. You can feel safe.
Courtyard with flowers, spacious field views and the sound of the river flowing by. On a flat stone a white chair invites you to sit by the water. By listening to the flowing of water you wash away your troubles and stress and your body gets rid of unnecessary pressure.
The village roads and forest trails invite you to move. Walk, run or bike. Pack a picnic lunch in a backpack and hike to the forest. Perhaps you can make a campfire in a safe way in the shelter and fry sausages and cook coffee in an old fashioned coffee pot. The forest offers berries for dessert.
However, you must be aware if starting a fire is allowed because of the dryness. You must put out the fire when leaving.
Read, play, make music
Are you a person who relaxes more easily when reading? We have a small library where you can find books and magazines.
Cell phones and tablets have become all too familiar to many of us while interaction with loved ones remains very minimal. What if you shut down your devices? Play a board game, become a child again and play with your kids.
You can sit by the piano and let the tunes fill the air. Sing alone or sing along, it’ll be fun.
Having a meal together
The coals glow in the grill and the delicacies cook slowly. Family or friends sitting with you. Silence or heartily laughter, an atmosphere where it is good to stay in.
Fresh fish bought from a local fish shop or caught by yourself can be smoked in a smoking box.
Since the old days in Finland the sauna has been the place to be born and the place where a deceased was prepared for their last journey.
Since the old days in Finland the sauna has been the place to be born and the place where a deceased was prepared for their last journey. A hissing sound from the stove when water hits the stones. The fire hums quietly in the oven. Shadows and peacefulness.
In the sauna you can sit by the fireplace looking at the flames. The porch overlooks the river. On a dark and clear evening, the sky with its countless stars is incredibly beautiful. The warm light of a candle in lanterns create the atmosphere.
A soft bed and clean sheets await you in the cottage. Soon you will have fallen asleep deeply to bring enough rest to start a new day.
