HONKA COTTAGE VILLAGES
The construction and development of country complexes is one of the most important areas of company operations.
At the core of all of our activities is the aspiration to create a top-quality residential environment. The comfortable atmosphere found in HONKA villages is fostered thanks to well-planned infrastructure, a superior level of technical equipping, outstanding site development and prompt attention to issues associated with village maintenance and the organization of leisure-time activities for village residents.
The company’s first experience in this area involved the construction and development of Le Meridien Moscow Country (Golf) Club, Nakhabino, in Moscow Region. Next followed construction of the cottage villages Honka-Park, Russian Switzerland, Copper Lake and Honka Family Club in Leningrad Region. Demidkovo Village has also been erected in Perm Region.

The construction of several other cottage villages is slated to begin in the near future.

The company owns two factories, located in Central Finland, that produce roughly 3000 homes annually.
The standout quality of HONKA materials is their environmental-friendliness and sustainability. The company was the first in its field to earn the right to label its products with the CE stamp, certifying compliance with European standards of quality. All of the materials produced at the company’s factories bear a certificate issued by the Finnish state structure VTT, which guarantees compliance with all relevant standards under the product-manufacturing process.
