Dalen is a cabin by the beach on the western tip of Stor-Pellinge. The cabin can be reached by car. The view of the Gulf of Finland is magnificent from the cabin, which lies just a stone throw from the beach.
The cabin of 45 m² comprises a kitchen, two bedrooms and a family room with a big window to the sea. The cabin is connected to a guesthouse, which has a double bed, with a roomy terrace. The sauna lies about 50 m from the cabin.
Dalen radiates a feeling of retro as well as holiday. On the terrace you can prepare barbecued food and at the same time enjoy the impressive views of the sea in the south. There are good fishing opportunities and it is possible to swim in the sea.
An excellent place for outdoor life
The forest surrounding the cabin and the big rocks on the beach invites to a real adventure for children and other playful persons. It is here you can find the peace, as the cabin is rather out-of-the-way. Forest surrounds the cabin, except for the sea in the south. The terrain attracts to rambling around. The same landscape inspired Tove Jansson when she created the first stories about Moomin.
On the island there is a thematic adventure for those who want to walk in the footsteps of Tove Jansson and the Moomins and solving riddles at the same time. The programme is suitable for both children and adults. Read more on the page Island Riddle and book your tour. Welcome to a real holiday adventure!
