Active living in the countryside

Hinnerjoki is a part of Eura’s countryside where the landscape is rich with vast fields and thick forests. Here you can enjoy the peace of the countryside. In the center, there is a more densely built settlement, with detached houses concentrated around the services of the area. There are still signs that Hinnerjoki used to be its own municipality, but it has been part of Eura since 1970.

The center of Hinnerjoki which is also called the church village (kirkonkylä) is spread along the Hinnerjoki River. There is a shop and several small businesses in the village. Hinnerjoki is an excellent residential area for families with children. There is a primary school with small group sizes and a small daycare. Hinnerjoki also has its own library and, a staple of a church village, a church.

Transport connections are good, especially for car owners. The distances are fair: 20 kilometers to the center of Eura and 35 kilometers to Rauma. Municipal school buses take older children to schools in Eura and Rauma.
