Holiday cottages have been rented on Rantala Farm over 40 years. The farm is located within walking distance of the cottage, making it easy for guests to get acquainted with the everyday life of the farm or just drop in for a chat. The comfortable cottage is ideal for both families with children and older holidaymakers. Rantala Farm cultivates cereals and caraway seeds, some of the fields being scenic rather than productive. Forestry being important to the farmer, there are plenty of opportunities for guests to roam the forests or make use of the logging roads or trails for walks and backpacking. Wild berries and mushrooms can be freely gathered in the forest and the Rantala area is rich in this natural produce. There is a village society tepee on the farm’s land where guests are free to go to roast sausages or brew coffee over an open fire. The Vuorenkylä nature trail with its splendid scenery is also well worth a visit! In winter there are 2-8 km long maintained ski trails along which it is possible to reach Purnuvuori Ski Resort. At Purnu you can experience the exhilarating speed of downhill skiing and also dine on Purnu’s famous vendace! It is also easy to reach the national snowmobile trail network from the cottage: Rantala Farm rents a snowmobile to guests. Close to peaceful Manunsaari island you have a chance to see a broad range of wildlife, e.g. whooper swans, black-throated divers, or a family of mallards, as well as to experience the peace of the wilds. Manuel Hara, one of Rantala Farm’s previous owners, used to set his fish nets near the island, which explains how the island got the name Manunsaari (“Manu’s Island”). The sun shines on the terrace at Manunsaari all day long. The terrace has a table and chairs and the yard a rustic dining table with benches. A rowing boat is provided which you can use to fish for fat perch close to the island, then bring your catch to the wood-burning barbecue grill on the shore. Right next to the cottage there is excellent berry and mushroom picking terrain, which is also ideal for rambling in general. Come and enjoy the heat in a cottage sauna with a traditional wood-burning stove. We at Rantala Farm want you to enjoy your holiday and we are ready and willing to assist you to achieve this. Hartola golf course 24 km. Only cottage on the island.

    Jäätilanteen takia ei päästy siihen mökkiin, johon oli tarkoitus mennä mutta tilalle saatiin vähintään yhtä ihana mökki! Erittäin koiraystävällinen paikka. Uusi loma jo varattu tänne, suosittelen ?

  • Riitta T, Elokuu 2021

    Mökillä oli erittäin rauhallista ja hiljaista. Sai nauttia luonnon rauhasta ja tarkkailla lintujen touhua.

  • Pia K, Syyskuu 2020

    Ihana syysloma. Akut ladattu. Ihana aika syksyllä mökkeillä. Meidän porukalle riittävä mökki. Ei tarvitse juoksevaa vettä eikä sisävessaa. Paras mökki myös koiran kannalta.❤️
