Ria Santamaria (Staff)

A mere 20 minutes from Rovaniemi airport takes you to this private enclave, known to be the most luxurious accommodation to be found within Rovaniemi. All building materials used in this chalet were locally sourced. Upon entering, one immediately is drawn to the panoramic windows in the living/dining area showcasing the stunning views of the forest and surrounding areas. The expansive sitting room with a fire place is perfect after a day out in the snow. Each bedroom has en suite bathrooms with all the modern amenities. There is no shortage of things to do! All experiences are done privately and there is a lot of interaction with the locals (chef, guides)  providing an authentic experience with many wow  moments.
