Nice small apartment in a small block house near down town Turku

I have 55 m2 apartment with living room, bedroom, kitchen with all electric equipments, bathroom with washing machine and balcony. There is in back yard a small park-playing area with out door grill. The house lies almost in country-side area, but only 10 min from down-town.

The bus stop near (downtown 10 min), railway station about 6 min (to Helsinki, Tampere) and ferry to Sweden (15 min to harbour). Turku is an old city, where river goes trough city and we have nice archipelago, old castle, museums etc.
Turku is clean, cosy, beatiful city with all kind of happenings in sommertime. Good sport facilities: swimming, jogging, walking, cyckling, tennis, golf, sailing etc. We have water park, too. The National park for hiking is only 30 min drive from my place .It is possible to negociate about car rent too.
