In Hykkilä you can enjoy the peace and quiet of nature and spend an unrushed holiday. Hykkilän Huvilat is part of the old estate of Sipilä, the first historical references to which go back to 1539. Today Sipilä is an organic farm, and Pekka and Marjo are the 22nd generation in charge of it. Organic grain is farmed in the fields.
