What are we going to do

Walk along the riverside in the old town and experience the traditional building done by the fishermen on the island. Relax in a cafe right in the heart of the city before experiencing the sea in it's full glory, walking along the endless beaches of Pargas. Breathtaking scenery close to the main island will ensure the best photos to upload on your social media! Returning to the main island, we will be greeted by our house dog Nixon and enjoy some lemonade in our lovely archipelago house built in 1904, 13 years before Finland's independence.

Pargas is located 25 km/15,5 miles from the historical city of Turku. Transport/pick-up is available from Turku to Pargas. Do bear in mind that we also have 3 cats living in the house.

The price is negotiable depending on the size of the group.

Reviews

I visit Pia with my father as part of the father-and-son trip in Finland. It was a wonderful afternoon, we enjoyed the forest, the view, the sauna, the food, and everything! And Pia also offered us the ride from and back to Turku.
Thank you Pia! It was a nice trip, and a pleasure of meeting you! :)
It was an amazing local experience even for someone who travels a lot. If you are looking for an active, but at the same time relaxed getaway, it's a perfect activity. The owners were extremely friendly and created a very positive experience. Everything was well organized, but not stressful or time limited. Great stories, one of the best sauna and very delicious "suomalainen makkara". If you are looking to experience a little bit of Finnish lifestyle - try it, you wont be disappointed!
