At Ilomäki farm, we offer our visitors cosy and comfortable cottage accommodation, beautiful nature, Finnish traditions and plenty of peace and seclusion all year round in the small village of Peräseinäjoki, close to the city of Seinäjoki, in western Finland. A visit to Ilomäki is a chance for you to immerse yourself in authentic rural life: enjoying the scent of fresh hay, meeting the many animals living on our farm and making the most of the unhurried pace.
Ilomäki Farm has been in the same family since 1827. Our farming activities include forestry and growing crops and hay, and some sheep, horses and rabbits live on the farm as well. These days, we offer holiday accommodation alongside our more traditional farming activities. We welcomed our first guests in 1999 and have continued to expand our offering ever since. There are now seven unique cottages dotted around our farm, suitable for 2–9 guests. A further six-person cottage is available at Kalajärvi Holiday Park, around 6 km from the farm.
Ilomäki Farm is family-run and the owners, the sixth generation to run the farm, continue to live here. Merja and Jarmo Ilomäki and their daughter Manta are responsible for the day-to-day running of the farm, and are supported by the previous generation of farmers, Päivi and Reijo Ilomäki. We very much look forward to our guests arriving and you are always welcome to come and watch as we go about our daily tasks on the farm. If you prefer, you are of course welcome to have a more private experience and simply enjoy the quiet and seclusion your cottage offers.
