Location, forest around"

”Excellent place for big family weekend
Magnificent views. Quiet. Peaseful. Comfortable. So good for people. Excellent place for spending time with lovely dogs. Excellent price/quality ratio.”

”Nature at your doorstep
Santalahti is the most tranquil place, so beautifully situated among the trees, overlooking the sandy beach and sea.
There's nothing better than waking upp in the morning, going to the sauna, warming upp. And then cooling down with a dip in the sea!
The golf course is stunningly beautiful, a must experience!
I enjoyed seeing the white cheeked  geese, but didn't like their  poop...
I was also surprised that me and my sisters bed was a twin bed? Why  not two singles? Hutt 109...”
