Wanhan Koulun Puoti
- Welcome to our beautiful village by the lake Pielinen -
Services in the spirit of the old village school
Our shop is located in Vuonislahti, Lieksa in the middle of the most beautiful national landscape and magnificent hiking areas. From our coastal paths you can admire the hills of Koli on the other side of the lake. You can enjoy nature without traffic jams and tourist masses.
Our shop is an old village school from the late 1800s. Here you can enjoy friendly service and pizzas with local ingredients. You can enjoy a glass of wine or our delicious lemonades, which are made on a small farm in our local area.
You will also find a wonderful shop of ecological products, local handicrafts and home décor products, where you can pamper yourself or make bargains in a souvenir bag. In addition, we sell groceries and we have an excellent selection of books. We also have accommodation for rent.
Welcome to enjoy the country atmosphere in our beautiful village by the Lake Pielinen.
One of our customers once said, We are "an oasis in the wilderness".
We have a small grocery and we also provide local delicacies.

Welcome to Vuonislahti
We are Calle and Riikka. Our story in Vuonislahti starts with the cottage of Riikka´s grandparents. Stunning nature and national landscapes took over, that´s why we moved here.
When the old school in Vuonislahti was on sale, we made the decision to start Wanhan Koulun Puoti to meet the needs of villagers, cottagers and tourists alike. Vuonislahti is a dear place for us, we hope you enjoy our lively village like we do.
See you in the village <3
