Distinguished by views from the top of Utsuvaara hill to the pine-clad wilderness beyond, the three-storey Villa Laavu blends modern amenities with a traditional wood cabin feel. A log fire provides the focal point in a spacious open-plan living space with high ceilings and large windows, while seven bedrooms provide comfortable accommodation for families, sleeping up to fourteen. Five of the bedrooms are en suite; with the master bedroom also featuring a mini kitchenette and balcony. On the terrace, a welcoming Jacuzzi tempts relaxation. Prepared by the chalet chef, meals are created around the guests’ preferences and wines are specially selected to partner each menu. On the doorstep lies a winter wonderland, with snowshoeing, skiing, husky safaris, snowmobiling and reindeer farm tours on offer. You can even meet Father Christmas and his elves on a private visit. To maximise your chances of seeing the Northern Lights, an optional overnight in a glass igloo, located just 500 metres from the chalet, can also be arranged.
Prices based on 4 adults and 4 children sharing including flights, 4 nights accommodation with half board and private transfers. Excludes activities and excursions.
