House for 8 in central Finland / car (for seven) exchange possible

We have a cozy 120 m2 house on big sheltered plot (2400 m2). Our garden is also quite big and nice. We have recently decorated our home (outside building where is our new sauna etc. has been built 2015). We have also an old sauna in old barn we still use. In our home you will find all machines needed except air conditioning (In Finland normally not needed.). We have also wireless internet which works well in all our rooms. In our home you can also use a trampoline, Xbox and tree house.

We have also nice 20 square meter terrace with light cover and possibility to grill. Our house is situated on a hill and to evening sun and that is why we also normally have hardly any nasty insects.

We can also change car with you (We have car for 7 and other car for 4 people.)

We will find nursing places for our pets but if you want you can take care some of them. We can also take care your pets if needed.

Pieksämäki is a small town of about 18 000 inhabitants. This area is mainly forests but there is also several big lakes near by and I can leave rubber boat for you with a small motor if you want so. I have also big boat (6 m with 100 horse power) on trailer but it is dangerous for beginners (Our lakes are shallow though big ones.). Here is also good possibilities for canooing (many rivers and lakes) in Pieksämäki. (Rent Place for canoos is about 1 km from our house.)
Here you can see some beautiful photoes from our nice town:

Finland is very clear and safe country. We have much free nature.

If you like more city life there is three big towns Jyväskylä, Kuopio and Mikkeli about 80 km from our home.
Within 1 km we have swimming hall and two beaches.

We are very responsible from other peoples property and hope you feel the same.
