We have local produce, handicrafts, organic products, gifts and groceries. Here you will also find a book shop. 

In our Cafe and terrace, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and our delicious pastries. We also have serving rights. We make Pizzas in our pizza owen on Saturdays and Sundays.

 Welcome to enjoy the country atmosphere in our beautiful village by the Lake Pielinen.


We have a small grocery and we also provide local delicacies. 

Our gift shop        

In our gift shop we have wonderful ecological products from soaps to laundry powders, local handicrafts from jewellery to woolen hats, as well as gifts and decoration products. 


In the café you will enjoy the old school milieu. In summer, you can also enjoy the village atmosphere while sitting outside at the terrace. You can buy books for your holiday at our book shop.

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
