Penttilä used to be a farm, producing vegetables and fruit for hotels in Mikkeli and Helsinki. It is situated in the middle of the woods, next to a lake - Synsiö Järvi - in Kangasniemi, halfway between Mikkeli and Jyväskylä.

"moral values in Finland are high in comparison to those of other countries - the people are actually quite honest - in our first months we have made many friends and have hade many positive experiences  - we did learn however that the way business is conducted, as far as ethics go, is quite comparable with the rest of Europe"
