The cottage is very nice and comfortable, very well equipped. We were 8 people and there was plenty of everything in the kitchen. It is in a very quiet location but everything is close by for sports activities and shopping. It was a relaxing week with snow scooters, dog sleds and the Northern Lights. I'll definitely come back 😁 thanks to Nicola and Tanja

We took our 3 boys and my parents for a week to Finland and rented Yllashilla Cottage two weeks before Christmas. The main aim was to meet Father Christmas but we wanted to experience everything else this part of the country had to offer too. Having spoken to other families we definitely lucked out by choosing this area as the Father Christmas excursion was beautifully real, nothing tacky or fake, not overcrowded (only 20 or so other people) no merchandising or flashing lights just a simple believable secret village which made my 11 year old believe again! Nicola, the owner of Yllashilla helped us out with all our questions, put us in touch with organisers of husky trips, cross country skiing lessons, snowboarding teachers, restaurants and everything else we were looking for. She couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage was picturesque in it's setting, warm and cosy and had everything we needed right down to a heated clothes dryer! We had hired a car and the supermarket and local restaurants were a 10 minute drive away and about a 40 minute walk. We were 7 people and there was plenty of space for more. We honestly had the best trip it was what you dream Christmas to be like! Although having cross country skied across the lake and through the woods I would imagine it is pretty stunning in summer too.

We spent 5 nights at Ylläshilla as a family of 10. It was a very comfortable cabin with everything we needed. We especially loved the Kota where we spent most nights round the fire, it was a great area for socialising. We were out most days but we had one day staying in and had lots of fun playing around on the sledges, fat bikes, we even got our skis and snowboards out. The neighbourhood is great, very quiet and pretty to look at. Leading up to the trip, Nicola couldn’t do enough to help us plan our trip to perfection, not something you usually find with a private rental. We’ll definitely be heading back to Ylläshilla at some point, we loved it.

We absolutely loved our trip to Lapland. First time ever that far north. The log cabin fitted our two families perfectly. The beds were comfortable. The supermarket was a short distance away. The cabin was warm and cosy. We saw the Northern Lights and went reindeer sleighing. The ski slopes, which are only 5 minutes away, were quite empty which was perfect for learning to ski. We travelled to Akaslompolo by the sleeper train from Helsinki which was fun for all (quite the Orient Express but without the body). I would definitely recommend Yllashilla for future Lapland adventurers.

An unforgettable experience in Finnish Lapland. Charming cabin very close to skiing and the shops but on a quiet road. Stylish interior and well equipped kitchen. I highly recommend the Kota as part of the full Lappish experience.

This is a magical place to visit and the chance to stay in a beautiful cabin which has everything you need. The cabin has been well thought out with everything you need and feels like home from home. The decor is stylish and the Kota is such a added bonus. There is so much to see and do in this beautifu place.

We stayed for a week with friends over new year. Yllashilla provided the most wonderful accommodation; comfortable beds, great facilities, underfloor heating, plenty of space, lovely decor and the best bit.... a brilliant kota. The kota formed the basis for all good team cooked breakfast and lovely suppers cooked on the open fire. It seemed very Hansel and Gretel! What a fantastic place to sit chewing the cud with friends! Yllashilla is in a beautiful area of Akaslompolo... the best from what I saw. Picture perfect. We could see the ski slopes from the cabin but the feeling of remoteness was amazing. Would love to go back... the skiing (so quiet compared to the Alps- but granted not as challenging), snow mobiling, husky sledding, cross country skiing.- so much to do.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a week in Akaslompolo before Christmas and it was incredible. The area is magical and a wonderful place for families. Yllashilla is a fantastic place to stay; the forest setting is beautiful, the cabin is cosy and homely, and the area is filled with activities for families with kids of all ages. I couldn't recommend Yllashilla enough!
