Accommodation for small groups
Finnature’s headquarters is located at Villa Finnature Guesthouse in Muhos near Oulu. Here are our office and our guesthouse where groups can stay comfortably in the middle of countryside. Indeed, the Villa is surrounded by forests and fields.
Villa Finnature was opened in 2019 for small groups attending to our photography tours. The Villa has six comfortable, nature-themed single or twin rooms. In total we can accommodate up to 10 persons. Rooms are equipped with comfortable beds and the Villa features shared toilet facilities. There are two showers with a toilet and two separate toilets at use. An attractive lounge with welcoming sofas and a baking oven provides warm atmosphere in the evenings. Joint dining room with big dining table is perfect for get-togethers.
Guests can enjoy free WIFI, freeview TV and hairdryers. Villa Finnature Guesthouse is non-smoking.
We pay a lot of attention to ecological sustainability in the Villa. For example, we have kept many of the movables from the previous house owner. Previously, the house acted as a children’s home. A lot of the material at Villa Finnature is recycled, and our heating meets the standards with air-source heating pumps downstairs and a pellet fireplace upstairs. Pellets are a side product of wood industry. Also, garbage is recycled.
Guesthouse designed for photographers
We have designed Villa Finnature with especially photographers in mind. The Villa is decorated by beautiful nature photographs taken by Finnature’s owners Jari and Kaisa Peltomäki. Also, rooms are equipped with extension cords so that everyone has enough power for charging many devices, and bookshelves are stocked with books related to photography and natural history. But most importantly, we have built a photography hide attached to the main house where guests are welcome to photograph garden birds and Red Squirrels visiting our busy bird feeding stations. Bird species visiting here include Willow Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Greenfinch, Yellowhammer, Great-spotted Woodpecker and Eurasian Jay.
Villa Finnature is located only 30 minutes’ drive away from Oulu. From here, the drive to our Golden Eagle photography hides is nice and short as well. See more photos of our Guesthouse at our Flickr gallery for Villa Finnature.
