Located on the picturesque shores of Lake Saimaa, Hotel & Spa Resort Järvisydän offers medieval feasts, relaxation in the steamy saunas and plenty of activities, from hiking and fishing to snowmobiling and ice skating.
Inspired by the history of the resort, dishes at the Restaurant Piikatyttö are influenced by recipes dating back to the 17th century, served in pottery bowls, on wooden boards and on iron skillets. Often accompanied by traditional folk music around the roaring fire, meals are enjoyed by candle light and can be paired with a range of local fruit and international wines from the hotel wine cellar- the largest in the region. In addition to this, located in the spruce forest beside the hotel, Tepee Restaurant Savon Loitsu serves up a specialty of game.
Accommodation in villas and cottages has been available at Järvisydän for quite some time, but the beautiful and brand new hotel was completed July 2015. Constructed from stone and wood, all rooms elude a sense of high-quality, whilst maintaining the old-style and history of the resort. Standard rooms offer twin or double beds, modern bathrooms and private balconies. Suites have an additional bunk bedroom, kitchenette, living area and a Jacuzzi, whilst Superior Suites command impressive views over Lake Saimaa and Sauna Suites feature a private sauna built in the room. For serious indulgence or if you are travelling in a larger group, the VIP Suites or Penthouse is sure to meet your needs.
Stay active on your stay to Finland with an array of activities for every season. In summer, hike and cycle in Linnnansaari National Park, go fishing on boat trips, forage for the berries and mushrooms in your dinner throughout autumn and; snowshoe, snowmobile and ice skate during winter. When looking to unwind after a busy day, look no further than the Finnish Sauna World onsite. Complete with a wood-stove, smoke and steam sauna, open-air hot tub and spa, it is the ultimate relaxation spot.
