There is one big serious rental cottage with a male character close to Lappeenranta city in Finland, located in a pine forest.

There is sauna inside the cottage, but it is not the main feature. The main feature of the cottage is it's separate shore sauna, which is heated with firewood.

Lake shore near the cottage and terrace have breathtaking views of sunsets over the lake Saimaa.

Next to the cottage large pike can be caught, because the coastline there has many backwaters, coves, islands and depths drop.

3. GRILL-HOUSE (covered barbecue place) ON THE BEACH



There is a covered barbecue place neat the cottage, where you can prepare meal. This place also has beautiful views of Lake Saimaa. It is nice place to spend evenings there and cook dinner over a campfire.

Summer in Finland is time for grilling! Everything that can be cooked on the grill will be cooked on an open fire only, not on the kitchen plate. It is possible to make a grill with fish, meat, sausages, vegetables, and even pancakes on special pans for grilling. You can find a selection of products in local food stores that can be cooked on a campfire.

Traditional Finnish fish dish is a smoked fish prepared in a special way on the wooden plank. This type of smoking is called Loimulohi. Preparing of this fish is very simple, that is why it is perfect food idea for cooking while enjoying the outdoors. Taste of this fish is much more interesting and more delicate then normal smoked fish in a box.

4. SEPARATE LAKE SHORE SAUNA CABIN



On the shore of Saimaa lake there is separate sauna cabin - a real highlight for steam and heat lovers, dipping into the lake after sauna and get-togethers with friends.

Sauna cabin has 2 storey, mini kitchen with a living room, fireplace and attic with 3 sleeping places and TV. Floor heating in the sauna. Big terrace.

Finnish sauna features:

- Coloured lights, aromas and relaxing music have nothing to do with Finnish sauna. Real Finnish saunas are dimly lit, there is no music or smells except for fresh birch and natural tar.

- There are no rules for how often you should throw water on the stove. Whenever you feel like another wave of steam, go for it. It is allowed to use clean water only. Aroma oils, beer and other additives is strictly prohibited (as the stones then have tobe cleaned or disposed)!!!

- Be sure to drink plenty during and after sauna. Water is probably best for you, but beer and cider is what Finns enjoy the most.

- Traditionally, Finnish sauna temperature is from 60 to 100 degrees. There's no point to warm up sauna more, since steam from throwing water on the stove raises the temperature naturally.

- Finnish sauna has nothing to do with sex. Sauna is a place primarily for relaxation of consciousness and mind, calm, cleanse the body and spirit. Therefore, people talk a little and move a little in the Finnish sauna. Just kick back and take it easy!

5. LAMB COOKED IN A BIRCH LOG



Meat and potatoes - perhaps the most favorite men's food. There is one place in Finland, a unique restaurant serving only meat and potatoes mainly. The lamb meat is cooked in a wood-fired oven about 9 hours in a birch log. It becomes incredibly soft and just melting in the mouth.

Sarapirtti Kippurasarvi restaurant, the world only restaurant, where you can try Sara, is located in 40 km from the cottage. It is possible to go there during your holidays at the cottage with friends and family for a special meal or gala evening.

There is one rule at this restaurant: Eat all you can. Owners are joking that the first 3 plates will help you to feel the taste of the dish, but with the fourth portion you will begin a real meal!

6. FINNISH CRAFT BEER FROM LOCAL MICROBREWERY



Few people associate Finland with freshly brewed beer. And it is vain! There are about 20 mini-breweries in Finland today, that make truly amazing beer brewed in small quantities (we're not talking about the Finnish mass-market beer producers giants).

We've already posted a little article about one local Finnish BRYGGERI HELSINKI.

One of the best pubs and the best varieties of local Finnish fresh beer can be enjoyed in Lappeenranta, at the restaurant-pub Teerenpeli Lappeenranta. This pub specializes in local beers, in particular of their own production. In the brewery you can find both top and bottom fermented beers. Best Finnish barley and fresh Salpausselka ground water are used as raw materials for beer production. All beers have funny Finnish names for example Laiskajaakko (lazy Jack), Onnenpekka (Lycky Pete). Beers of this mini-brewery have won Gold Medals at the Helsinki Beer Festival (The best microbrewery beer in Finland) during last several years.

You can buy bottled beers from the biggest markets (Prisma and Citymarket) in Finland, and of course taste them in Teerenpeli restaurant in Lappeenranta: Kauppakatu 28, 53100 Lappeenranta.
