Our History

Iso-Naappila farm has been run by our family, the Mäkelä family, from 1539 so the farm has a long history.

Farming was always the main business until 1991 when Olli and Tarja Mäkelä, my parents, started the holiday cottage company. Our holiday cottages have been popular ever since and we have visitors from all over, Finland and abroad.

In 2005 my brother and me took over the family business. My brother, Asko, looks after our earthmoving and forestry customers and I, Katja look after our holiday cottages and you, our visitors.

It is always great to see new visitors here enjoying our holiday cottages and the beautiful Finnish nature and it gives us great pleasure to welcome you to Iso-Naappila
