About Saarila

In the Saarila yard there are the main building, stone barn and an old store house, all from the 1910′s. The historic environment creates an atmosphire of domesticity and tells about the North Karelian culture.

Our rental cottages are located about 400 m from the old Saarila yard. The distances between the cottages are about 100 m, and each of them has an own spacious yard and a private shore. The lake Viinijärvi is peaceful. There ar woodlands and pastures of domestic animals between the cottages and the Saarila yard.

The best in Saarila is its authentic, old-fashioned atmosphire. You can see animals pasturing in the fields, guests go to their cottages, and you can hear the tractor sound from the hayfield.
