The first proper estate founded in the Haukanmaa district was called Piililä in 1842. The farm was a big one, owning thousands of hectares’ worth of land consisting of fields but mostly rocky forests and the shore line of Lake Päijänne. These days Nukula owns the property and the estate is significantly smaller even though still surrounded by the wild forests and Lake Päijänne, a cradle of silence. The forests harbor a range of wildlife, including the moose, rabbits, foxes as well as lynxes and bears. Many birds, such as ravens or swans in addition to smaller ones have made their home in the area. Only the birds singing, wind blowing and the waves of lake Päijänne crashing ashore will break the audible silence of Nukula.
