Art & Design Villas, Anttolanhovi

Anttolanhovi’s Art & Design villas offer the privacy of own space as well as the luxury of a world-class hotel service should you require a chef, a massage or even a beautician. Situated by the beautiful Lake Saimaa, these villas are unique and (forgive us for stating the obvious) incredibly artistic.


The villas are located on the shores of Saimaa in the village of Anttola, around 25km from the center of Mikkeli. If you’re coming from Helsinki, the drive will take just over three hours. If you prefer to travel by train, you can get from Helsinki to Mikkeli in around two and a half hours. You’re in the heart of Finnish Lakeland here, so seclusion is part of the charm.


Each of the villas are unique, having absorbed the personal touches of individual artists and designers. All are ecological wooden structures and the large windows will have you feeling at one with nature. The lakeside villas in particular are our favorites. Boasting views over the waters and beyond, you can expect chic Scandinavian décor and all the amenities you could ever need. All fireplaces are stocked with firewood and each villa has its own sauna, BBQ, private beach and private jetty. You could spend days just in and around the villa, jumping straight into the lake from your jetty or relaxing on the private terrace after a delicious BBQ meal. You’ve even got your own rowing boat and bikes should you want to explore a little further afar.


Whether you want to cozy up in a beautiful villa in the winter snow or have always fancied the Scandinavian ‘summer by the lake’ ideal, these villas will not disappoint. For us, summer is the perfect season to enjoy Finnish Lakeland and when you’ve got a jetty and rowing boat to make the most of, why wouldn’t you want to spend a few weeks here in the sunshine?
