On the dirt road the beauty glows and bows deep

There are a lot of small villages in Kaisela-Paijula, which are surrounded by romantic rural landscapes beautifully described by a Finnish singer-songwriter Dave Lindholm: “Sateen jälkeen hiekkatiellä kauneus hehkuu ja kumartaa syvään” [After it rains on the dirt road the beauty glows and bows deep]. The westernmost area of Nousiainen is about 2-5 km away from the center depending on where you count from and accessing necessary services is easy: many residents ride their bikes to the center.

Kaisela-Paijula ​​is mainly a sparsely populated countryside, whose residents enjoy spacious farms and gardens, peace and quiet. If this sounds like a dream, be on a lookout for both the houses and privately owned plots for sale!

Enjoying an active life with both culture and nature

Life in the countryside is very peaceful but there’s still excitement to be found – The Aliskulma village association has renovated the Old Station in Nousiainen as a place for parties, where the residents of Nousiainen meet regularly for festivals and dance events. Nutturla's Makasiiniteatteri elights its audience with amazing theater performances and also organizes theater courses for children and adults!

Hikers enjoy their time along the Sudenpolku path, which offers up to 8 km of trail surrounded by beautiful landscapes. The area is also popular with mountain bikers and trail runners. The high-rising Kokkovuori rewards hikers with great scenery. The sports venues in the center of Nousiainen are also easily accessible from Kaisela-Paijula.
