An idyllic vacation place, she wrote

I had a lovely family as guests at Lillan some weekend ago.

Kiitos, oli kiva kokemus!
(Thank you, it was a nice experience!)

Wrote the mother of the family to me as they were driving back home.

But what a blog post she wrote after their stay! Wow, they really had enjoyed full. Both Lillan and all the wonderful things to do, see and enjoy here.

They had admired the smell of ancient girders at Lillan and indulged sunny breakfast at the terrace, enjoying flowers and the sun glimmering sea.

The family had eaten at Portside, one of the restaurants I recommended on a post some days ago. The children had enjoyed fullest the Kasnäs beach, Rosala viking centre and the ferry trips there and back.

The family had even tried canoeing at the nearby lake, given the keys and coordinates for the canoes by lovely and lively Maria Pick at the Rosala Handelsbod quite neighbour to Lillan.
At the end of her blog the mother writes:

Ehdottomasti joskus uudestaan. Kiitos Lillan ja aurinkoinen Kemiönsaari!
(Definitely worth visiting again. Thank you Lillan and sunny Kimito Islands!)

Thank you, wonderful Family A.! You are most welcome to stay at Lillan again!

Pears and cherries

Coming this autumn at Lillan garden if all goes well. Full blossom, so lovely! Dared even pick some for the welcoming flowers.

Misty and moisty morning

Yesterday I was at Dalsbruk to prepare Lillan for guests arriving today. Fog. A lot.
There were some terns flying elegantly, catching fish from the coast line.



Beautiful even with the fog. Had to take this pic to prove there were colours still present:

 

The spring is coming, nevertheless. And they have promised this day to be a more sunny one.

Sending you best of May Day greetings from Lillan at sunrise time this morning ❤

 

Guest feedback

Easter is over and easter guests have left Lillan. But listen how wonderful feedback Lillan got:

“..meillä oli aivan ihanaa! Upea talo, ihana piha, kiva kylä. Harmillisen kylmää oli mutta sehän on pukeutumiskysymys. Olemme erittäin tyytyväisiä lomaan. ..ihana paikka ja haaveilen jo palaavani joku päivä ja suosittelen muillekin.”

Loosely translated: “we had just marvellous time! Amazing house, wonderful garden, nice village. Annoyingly cold but that’s only matter of proper clothing. We are very pleased with vacation. Lovely place and I’m already dreaming of return and I do recommend others as well.”

I’m so happy to get this kind of a feedback! It gives me sense of being on a right track since I want Lillan guests, Lillaneers, to really, wholeheartedly, enjoy their vacation at Lillan. And to return ❤

PS. The coldness mentioned was outside Lillan – there came snow even though at this time of year spring should already be quite warm. In Lillan they had nice, warm and cozy. Guests had even used fireplaces to indulge themselves.

Nature bloom

Now you can say it’s officially spring! Hepatica❤

Spring flowers

Lillan garden had arranged its own welcoming gift for today❤


Sun shining, ice breaking free.. A perfect spring day!
