The Vaarinkallio villa is a recently completed, fresh and wondrous timber holiday home on lake Pielinen in Eastern Finland. The solid timber, as opposed to the now common laminated timber, keeps the house warm and lets it breath. The villa has large windows throughout which reveal the spectacular scenery of Koli national park.
Vaarinkallio is designed as a getaway for anyone, travelling and spending time together or alone. The rooms are soundproofed to allow guests to follow or ignore their schedule. Whether you want to hide from technology, just sit and enjoy the flames in the fireplace, or require high speed Internet access, we have got it covered. Want to cook a pizza? Choose between microwave, the oven, or the traditional fireplace oven. Looking for an adventure? Try to find the Big Dipper stars in the house. Yes, not just in the sky.
The villa is a slightly redesigned version of the Kuusamo Hirsitalot's Saapunki model.
The large living area forms the heart of the villa. The floor is made of a beautiful Spanish slate. Your feet are kept warm by state-of-the art underfloor heating. Their is a 2 m tall fireplace which can be used to provide warmth and as a traditional wood burning oven. You can spend your time on cold winter days watching the dancing flames.
At the centre of the space there are stylish red leather arm chairs and sofas. They are perfect for relaxing on and watching lake Pielinen through the floor to ceiling windows.
The kitchen is meant for cooking and enjoying life. Vaarinkallio has crockery and cutlery for up to twenty people which alllows you to hold a big party in style. In the kitchen there is plenty of cupboards and work top space along with a large refrigerator and freezer. There is also a modern dishwasher that makes it quick to clean up.
