“Lovely and Cosy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This was our second visit to Levi but our first to these chalets. We stayed here in December 2012 and I have been meaning to write this review for some time. We stayed in a one room chalet, for two adults and one child it was fine but may have been a bit of a squeeze for three adults.
We found the chalet to be well equipped it had everything you could need for a self catering holiday, we never made use of all the equipment. Many people comment that Levi is an expensive place but we found the supermarkets reasonably priced (approx Sainsbury's Marks and Spencers and Waitrose price range). The only thing we found to be expensive was junk food and alcohol, if you are willing to cook from fresh ingredients meals need not be that expensive.
If using the dishwasher be sure to select a short programme as it can seem to go on forever.
The DVD player was very handy to watch Christmas movies to get us into the festive spirit. Also many English language films were played on TV with Finnish subtitles.
The accommodation was spotless on arrival, yes you do have to make up your own beds on arrival but I felt this was a small price to play for such lovely accommodation.
The beds were comfortable and my little one loved sleeping on the bunk above the double.
There was just enough storage available for clothes as we tended to keep our outer clothes in the dryer. The dryer did break during our holiday and a replacement part was not available until the end of the week so we were given keys to use another drying cupboard.

We were never really disturbed by any external noise,despite being in such a central location. We found the lady on reception to be helpful and polite and dealt with any enquiries/ problems efficiently.
Internet access could be a bit temperamental but did not find this a problem.

The sauna was lovely and we didn't have any problems with it quickly heating up.

We booked through Inghams, we had already booked the excursions we wanted so didn't make use of the rep although he did come round to check we were ok and said he would pop around again, to which I told him not to as we were fine and would easily find him if we had any problems.

We all really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again if we were to visit Levi again.

Ski trip booked through Inghams, mid-March for a week. Self catering wooden cabins (caravans also on site), on edge of Sirrka Village at Levi Fell Ski Centre. Convenient for supermarkets, hotels, cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs, gift shops, bowling, cinemas, bus stops, church, excursions for snowmobiling, reindeer and husky sledding, ice-karting, x-country skiing, ice hotel... Within 10 minute walk of ski slopes at North Piste where ski hire and passes, cafe etc. available at Zero Point, 5 if not wearing ski boots and carrying skis. Cabins quiet and very warm (had to turn the heating down), freshly painted and reasonably clean. Good facilities: shower room with sauna and washing machine; porch with drying facilities, bedroom with bunk bed for three (double below, single above); small room with bed settee for one (and the wood-burning stove - wood available from store behind reception); main room with settee, armchair, coffee table, table and four chairs, flat screen television, wi-fi, kitchen area (microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher., cooker, oven, extractor fan, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, kitchen utensils), bedding and towels provided - no dishcloths or cloths to wipe up. On arrival just time to get to the nearby supermarket for a few breakfast supplies before it closes at 21.00. Cabins to be emptied by 12.00 on departure day.Luggage is left in store room behind reception until pick up for the flight later in the day (reception opens at 12.00 so if you want to do something earlier get a store key the night before - it closes at 20.00). So, comfortable accommodation, convenient for all facilities. Beautiful scenery, fun excursions.

Booked the holday thru Inghams and stayed here in the 63 sq m apartment that has 3 bedrooms and would sleep up to 7. There are only 3 of us so we had a room each. This apartment does not have a fireplace unlike the other ones in the complex but its alright even if its -28C outisde, no need for it really with the heated floor. We landed in the apartment heated up so we didn't need to adjust the thermostat and we just left it as it is for the whole week. The house is complete with washing machine, heated closet, microwave, fridge, oven and cooker, coffee maker, kettle, and toaster. Will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Levi.

Nearest bus stop for R2 route is Sirkantähti Hotel. This would take you to Lift No. 8 in the South piste (blue run) which is very good for beginners and back to Zero Point (Front piste) and the bus would then follow R1 route taking you to East piste and back to Zero Point again, in which the bus route would follow R2 route again. If you are taking beginner's lesson, lessons take place in the front slopes in kid's land. Zero Point is a good 10 mins walk from the apartments.

There are 2 supermarkets in the town, K supermarket is across the road from the apartments and open up to 9 PM even on Sundays. As we landed Sunday evening (after 8PM), we went straight to the Supermarket to get some few supplies.

As for Après-ski, there is an Irish pub and most hotels have bars as well. There is a club but did not get the chance to go there. Few karaoke place are available as well, as the locals love them.

We did the mini husky safari and aurora snowmobile safari, book thru Inghams when they had a briefing on Monday morning, both are highly recommended. We were not lucky to see the northern lights during the safari as it is still a bit bright, but managed to see the northern lights on our walks to Immeljarvi lake after 10. We even stayed up to midnight one night and witnessed spectacular displays.

I would love to go back to Levi and bring more of my friends next time. I'd probably book it thru Inghams again.

Stayed here for 4th time in February. I have added other reviews here, so not much to add to what I've already put if you want to check out more detail, still great little chalets right in centre of town. Once again thanks to Maria k who is always very helpful and pleasant. Be back next year no doubt.

Room Tip: The top chalets are more in a lit area, bottom ones darker if you are always checking on Aurora like...

We went with another couple to these apartments and opted for the split level three bedroom option. This gave us all plenty of room and left the sitting/ dining area free at all times. There were only twin (3ft) beds in each room so no double available. This was a disappointment to us as we prefer a double. The accommodation was clean, simply furnished and well equipped. Fridge/freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, iron, sauna and vacuum cleaner. The location is very central with the supermarket about 2 minutes walk away and the slopes a five minute walk. Skidoo and thermal suit hire are just across the road. They offered all that we could want in this resort. Reception were very helpful and the free WiFi useful for keeping in touch with home. The WiFi was occasionally intermittent but reception were more than willing to reboot the routers if asked.

Found this by luck as we where late in booking. Was very pleased with what we got. Nice little place. Perfect for two. Close to lots of great hiking spots. Lots of good stores near - and a good kitchen means you'll not starve...good thing as there where hardly any restaurants open...

We stayed in a smaller cosy cabin which includes all necessities, fully equipped kitchen and sauna. We even had a washing machine which was very practical. the location is near a main road but we didn't hear anything. there is little traffic to start with. Free wifi in cabin although reception could be a bit better. all in all very good value for the 50 euro we paid in the summer. we can recommend it.
