With Scandinavian architecture, the highest quality furniture and fixtures, and natural materials such as local stone and wood, the villas represent the Scandinavian design philosophy of functional beauty made to last. Inside the "ice block" inspired exterior you will find a warm, cozy and relaxing space that invites you to recharge and connect with nature.
Lapland and especially the Saariselkä area offers a wide range of activities for every season. The growing vacation destination has the northernmost ski resort in Europe. In summer it is always light and there is plenty of room for long walks. The rivers and lakes nearby provide a great experience on the water.
Right on the ski slope
Dutchen Group is developing in several phases a variety of villas and lodges, combined with a hotel. The plan is uniquely situated between a ski slope and a toboggan run. The first phase consists of the construction of 18 Ice Cube Villas, suitable for 8-10 people.
The south building fields are reserved for about 75 - 100 smaller Suite Cubes. Together with central facilities, these will function as a separate (snow) resort/hotel. On the two building sites above them, the current Ice Cube Villas will be further developed. On the northernmost building field, multi-family/company lodges will be realized. A product for which Saariselkä is originally best known.
