cottages near Savonlinna

We are hoping to book a cottage on or near a lake for 5 nights from the 17th july 2010 somewhere near savonlinna. Does anybody know of a website we can go through to book a cottage? Website needs to be in english. If anyone can suggest any other area in the lakeland district , we are open to alternative regions.

www.finnishlakesidecabins.com is a UK-based specialist booking service for self-catering holiday cottages and log cabins in Finland and Finnish Lapland. They've been around for years and have a good reputation.

A Finnish outfit that's been around forever is http://www.lomarengas.fi - there's an English version of their website although you may have to hunt around for the button, usually a Pom flag.

By the way, it sounds like you're aiming to attend the popular Savonlinna Opera Festival. You'd better book soon as accommodation in the area fills up very early. You're not the first to think of getting a cottage within driving distance.

Thanks for the links. We` are happy to book and pay for a week but need to leave after 5 days to catch our flight. Do you think this will be a problem?

I can't see how it could be.

A friend of mine had no trouble, just driving around on spec and looking for places for a couple of days here and there. But that was in August, past the peak holiday period. I wouldn't advise that for you, but it shows owners can be flexible.

Probably the website for cottages is huvila.net. Not too many choices close to Savonlinna in July available, though.
