Villa Sofia is a good place for getaway from the daily life. Our location in an island gives you the feeling of being detached from normal daily routines and the busy life. The tranquility of archipelago and the harmony of surrounding nature has certain healing effects which everone can easily find out themselves.
Villa Sofia is located in a small village of Barösund where you can also find (during the summer time) a minimarket, restaurant, cafeteria and guest harbour.
The beautiful outdoor and nature protection area - Elisaari - is located in the 2 km distance from Villa Sofia.
We are a couple who have been running an outdoor, nature protection and leisure area next to Villa Sofia for five years now. When this beautiful 90 years old school building was listed for sale one and a half a year ago in our neighbourhood we decided to take the chance.
Host's love for old buildings and the need for good quality accommodation space for our guests were the main reasons we are now here in Villa Sofia. We have been renovating the building since Spring 2017 and builded also a new accommodation building with tradional style next to the old one.
Villa Sofia was formerly named Barnabo which means the place where children live. In the archipelago the kids were not able to go home overnight during the school week especially in the Spring and Autumn time and they slept in the second floor of the school.
From the beginning of July 2018 Villa Sofia is open for everyone. Welcome to the seaside!
