The countryside of Sipoo, located eastside from Helsinki, is beautiful! At the end of November 2018, we visited places such as Café N’avetta, a home decoration shop Villa Nokkonen, and Gumbostrand Konst & Form! We also visited Restaurant Tila and ate lunch at Willa Söder.

We visited Café N’avetta first! It is located in Sipoo Västerskog, just a few kilometres from Helsinki to east. The products and delicacies of the unique café are baked by using butter and 60-year-old recipes!

The café building is not the only building in the area! There are saunas, celebration premises and also a shop, Villa Nokkonen, that offers home decoration.

The owners of Café Navetta, Johanna Petsola-Helin, and Villa Nokkonen, Tarja Sjögren, have been friends for many years.

Gallery manager of Gumbostrand Konst & Form, Charlotta Björkendahl, hopes that buying art would be easy for the customers.

Professional artists have designed an own G-collection for Gumbostrand Konst & Form, design products for daily use that customers can buy at the Shop.

Gumbostrand Konst & Form offers the visitors also a Bistro to enjoy meals and cafeteria products.

On the next day we visited a Restaurant Tila. The owners, Kaisa Rantama and Matti Seppälä, and their adult children, Ellen and Aku, are interested in music.

Matti tells us that there have been concerts at the restaurant. They are also planning to organize more concerts in the future.
