About Hugon Pappila
Pappila is Finnish for rectory. The historical building belonged to local parish. After it became obsolete for their purposes and was aquired by us, the building, with its gallant history, is now turning over a new, travel-oriented leaf. This year 2024, Hugon Pappila is participating in the European Region of Gastronomy 2024 Year in the Saimaa Region.
We can provide catering service for events of even a busful of people (pre-booking required). Combine a South Karelian culinary experience with a trip to the Kollaa and Simo Häyhä -museum, for example! During the summer of '24 the Pappila will also host a summer café - more information on this in the spring.
