To see and do around

This rental Cottage in Sastamala is part of what they call the "Mieli-Aitta" in Finnish. Mieli-Aitta offers catering services so you can just order food and drinks from them which is very convenient!. Let the host know excactly what your group wants and they will custom cater to you needs.

When overnighting at Mieli-Aitta you have different options. Stay at the farmhouse bed and breakfast style accommodation near the Pyhä Olavi church or stay here at the cottage in Sastamala. The cottage in Sastamala accomodates 10 people so if you travel with friends or family there are enough beds for everyone.

The Mieli Aitta cafe is really interesting. It is made of old grey logs and you sit on lambskin. Locals come there to have a chat and a cup of coffee with freshly baked goodies. You can spend a weekend or a whole week in this area exploring traditional pastures, farmland and meadows. Swim in the clean lakes!

Mieli Aitta is right next to the old Holy Olav's church Pyhän Olavin kirkko which is built in 1506-1516. The church was partly rebuilt and the insides renovated in 1999-2003 & 2005-2009 and has really unique and cool contemporary art inside. Definately worth the art experience whether you value religion or not. Inquire about a guided tour (the guide is always there during May-Aug from Sun-Fri 11pm -5pm), then you can really get a lot out of the art.

I loved touring the Holy Olav's church so I bought postcards of the non-traditional religious art to take home with me. What is more is that my kids also liked it. There is a sauna of course! Do it the Finnish way and go with others. 6-8 persons fit in the sauna hot room. Need a sauna coach to help enjoy a great sauna? See more about the Pyhän Olavin Church and another old church in the area to put on your visit list.
