The climate of northern Finland is by no means hot: the average temperature in Helsinki in July is about 17.2°C, and the capital, as we know, is located in the south of the country. That is why Finland is great for those who want to experience summer coolness in the hot months. This coolness goes hand in hand with the beautiful nature, nature parks and inexpensive real estate in small towns.

The seller honestly points out that the cottage may require major repairs. The main reason for this are its copper pipes of hot water supply. They have never been replaced, and therefore their technical service life is not so long, and it has expired. The windows were replaced in 2005. A sauna and WC renovation was carried out in 2011. A replacement of the entrance door took place in 2013, and the air heater was replaced in 2017.
