Aurinkoranta

Stress free holiday in well-equipped cottages and villas

It is really easy to spend a holiday in Aurinkoranta. The cottages are designed for a relaxed time spending, taking a sauna and cooking. Good night sleep guarantees a refreshing holiday, that is why we paid special attention to providing our guests with bedrooms of proper sizes and comfortable beds.

There is something suitable for each and every one. Marja loves brand new villas of Finnish design, Hannu chooses an intimate old log cabin in the shade of ancient pines, looking for rest and peace Emilia books a remote cottage to be able to listen to silence next to hiking routes of Evo, sick-and-tired of ordinary hotels Joni comes with his friends to Estelle and books the whole “hotel” for themselves.

Great sand beach

Aurinkoranta sand beach is one of the best in Southern Finland. The beach which looks on south- west is warm and sunny. Cold nothern winds stay behind the Aurinkovuori ridge making our beach calm for most of the time. That is why water in the summer is always warm.

The water is shallow, ane sand covers the bottom of the lake with waves producing real masterpieces to be seen through crystal clear water. Every cottage has its own beach and boat exept Armi and Aukusti. A great view on lake Vesijärvi and only 12 km to the opposite shore of Hollola.

 

A wedding in the light of the crystal chandelier

A wedding is definitely the greatest holiday in life. Everybody wants a wedding which is unforgettable, beautiful, memorable, individually planned in the style of the wedding couple. Estelle, usually used for special occasions such as weddings etc, has become a very popular venue. Many happy couples got each other hear both in severe frosts and on hot summer days.

A wedding weekend in Estelle is enjoyable peaceful. Decoration can be started already on Friday morning and the whole place is at your disposal until Sunday evening. Accommodation for the guests can be arranged both in Estelle and nearby cottages, which makes it really easy to gather for Sunday brunch. You can have a look at wedding pictures, go to the sauna, discuss all the happenings and enjoy both a great event and a pleasant company.

In addition to Estelle, Armi and Oskari as well as all the other our cottages are a good choice for arranging a party. If you want a surprise party or a proper crockery and table linen, booking such a venue will make your life much easier.

It is easy to practise any kind of sport in Aurinkoranta. Just on the other side of the road, in beautiful landscapes of Aurinkovuori, there are lighted tracks for walking or jogging which turn into skiing tracks both for cross-country and skate skiing in winter.
