In the private, sand-bottomed swimming area, you can enjoy a dip in the water while taking a sauna in the traditional sauna.
The cottage has electric heating and running cold water. The rent includes firewood, electricity and a boat. Linen, towels and final cleaning can be ordered as an additional service. Welcome to enjoy the peace of nature, just an hour from Tampere!

The cottage is located in Orivesi, about 60 kilometers from Tampere. The drive from Tampere is less than an hour and from Jyväskylä 1.5 hours. To get to the cottage, you need a car. The parking lot next to Pirtti can accommodate one car.

Other things to note

The bottom of the lake is naturally humus-rich, so the water in the lake is dark. The cottage is best suited for adults who are able to move normally due to differences in altitude. We recommend that you bring outdoor shoes, warm and rainproof clothing and rubber boots to the cottage.
