Valtterin mökki is a good, basic cottage with charming scenes.
However, if you are seeking for a good swallow sand beach for swimming, this is not a right place for you. There is a small river 40-50m from cottage. Further, there is a small lake also, within a walking distance of 300m across the field, and this is a better place for swimming. Both beaches are equipped with dock and boats.
On the lake Reijonjärvi and on river Suojoki, you can catch usually small fish only, but within a distance of a few kilometres, there are better possibilities (fishing permit is needed there 12€/week).
The bigger lake, called Kortejärvi, at a distance of 1.5 km, is nationwide waterfowl habitats; access there from cottage also along narrow riverbed, by canoe paddling or by rowboat equipped with electric outboard motor (free of charge). A bird watching tower is on opposite bank of the lake (access by car only, along road).
There is much fresh, clean air to breathe, as the cottage is in the middle of a real Finnish countryside.
During springtime, swans and cranes appear to landscape around cottage, and you can hear the calls of these magnificent birds. In forests beside, there are berries and mushrooms. Raspberry and blueberry are ready to ripen in July-August, red lingonberries later in the autumn.
As you probably know, in Finland, there is freedom to roam for everyone, to wander freely in forests and pick up berries.
