Villa Rukapiste

The cozy, traditional log house

Villa Rukapiste

The magnificent, large and atmospheric Villa Rukapiste, traditionally made from rare and unusual “kelo” logs, invites you to spend a high-quality getaway in the scenic landscape of Lapland and the silence of the forest.

The villa enjoys an excellent location; peacefully tucked away in the Finnish nature, the Ruka Ski Centre with its snow-capped ski slopes, shops and restaurants is nearby. Snowmobile trails and cross-country ski tracks run close to Villa Rukapiste, so there are activities for every need. In the summer you can also row and fish in the nearby Lake Iso-Veska, only 200 m away. In the Villa Rukapiste’s yard which is neatly surrounded by a reindeer fence, is a cozy “Kota” hut where you can grill tasty sausages over an open fire and make fresh aromatic pan coffee. An additional log garage provides shelter for two cars with electricity points for car heating systems. Possibility to charge an electric car (electricity included in the rent).

After the day’s activities, Villa Rukapiste beckons, offering a touch of luxury to your life. Enjoy the ambience of the fireplace and relax in the jacuzzi. Alternatively, unwind in the heat and steam of the sauna, beautifully illuminated in the bright colours of the northern lights.

Comfortably sleeps 8-10 people.

The rent includes bed linen, hand towels and bath towels. Final cleaning is also included in the rent. Arrangements for pets are made separately. Please ask for details when booking.
