We as a LikeFinland team visited a hotel called Villa Sibbe in the countryside of Sipoo, near Helsinki, and ate dinner at a restaurant called Veljekset in August 2018!
The history of Villa Sibbe in Sipoo is quite interesting. The municipality of Sipoo is located only approx. 35 km from Helsinki City Center. The farm “Joensuun Tila” was once owned by Nobel prize awarded Finnish chemical scientist A. I. Virtanen (1895-1973).
One of the large rooms is called Nobel, which is used to hold business meetings and parties such as weddings. Upstairs there is a kitchen area called Labra. The name Labra refers to the laboratory.
Some of the people, who have stayed in Villa Sibbe, have travelled to Finland from other countries such as the U.S., Russia, Italy, and Germany.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Restaurant Veljekset. The owners of the restaurant moved to Finland from Turkey so there are Turkish delicacies on the menu!
My favorite one was a dessert that included traditional baklava with ice cream and a cup of Turkish coffee!
There are many sporty activities to choose from near Villa Sibbe! You can go swimming, play disc golf, rent a kayak, and go hiking, for example, to Sipoonkorpi National Park, which was opened in 2011!
You can buy snacks at Café Sibbe near the marine. There is also a possibility to get to know discs and disc golf at NBDG Store (nbdg.fi) which is owned by the same owners as the hotel Villa Sibbe accommodation, Terhi Kytö and Juha Kytö.
