We travelled from Helsinki to see this example of real Finnish design and we're thrilled to visit this arts and craft style home. The location overlooking the lake is stunning and the gardens are lovely for a picnic.

It's interesting to see the three architectural styles come together into one complex. I suggest stopping at the cafe for a quick lunch if possible. We enjoyed the food and a cup of tea.

Hvitträsk was the private residence of Eliel Saarinen (built 1901-1903 by architects Herman Gesellius, Armas Lindgren and Eliel Saarinen), near Helsink. It is a very inviting, large home on top of a hill overlooking Lake Vitträsk. We were in the area for four days, so...More
