Beautiful nature and excellent facilities. A recent complete renovation and expansion makes this one of the most beautiful resorts in Scandinavia. We loved the luxurious cabins that even had in room Sauna and Jacuzzi!. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The new bad with the old wooden barge as the center piece is something really cool to see.

Would be a lovely place to stay longer. A bit far from Savonlinna for our intended purpose. Major kerfuffle broke out with the wardens of Joroinen triathlon who decided to close the access road to Järvisydän far earlier than advertised on the signs posted on the provincial road. The staff of JS seemed also a bit oblviius to the impact... More

The resort is situated in the Lake Saimaa area. We we blessed with the best of weather, and our cabin was situated a bit away from the resort area - luckily so, as there are major construction works ongoing and I pity the people living in the noise and dust. The cabin location was excellent, with use of a boat... More

Wonderful cottage experience for a family of first-timers to Finland. We shared a lake-side cottage with another family and there was ample space for all. Loved trying out the sauna and quick dips into the lake which was much warmer than I thought it would be! Very quiet and relaxing location. You would need a car to get there and... More

We stayed there during Eastern and our purpose was to skate on the famous skating tracks there. Tracks were in very good shape and the spring sun was shining so nicely for us. The 18 km track from Holiday center Jarvisydän to Oravi was great, there is a small cafeteria in Linnasaari where one can take a rest drinking a... More

Wow! The location and facilities of this place are amazing. We stayed in one of the newer cabins, with kitchen, wifi (slow) and every room en suite. Very contempory style but lovely all the same.

Järvisydän is in the middle of nowhere and that's what we wanted. Cottages are well equipped and the rooms are nice. Inside the main building you can feel old and mystic atmosphere. Personel is kind and food is excellent!

Jarvisydan has a beautiful location - in the middle of nowhere - and boasts with high-standard villas. Surely in summer the place fills every expectation but any other time of the year there isn't really much to do. The main building, lobby and restaurant are a huge collection of oddities. Some genuine old stuff; but the main restaurant hall ceiling... More
