The purpose of trip was to attend the wedding of my oldest son in the town of Myslenice. Of all those who travelled to the town we felt we were the more fortunate to have found such accommodation. This is a beautiful property which served our purposes very well. It has been lovingly restored and was good value for money. It was well equipped. Our sons loved the garden where they were able to practice their cricket skills!
I found Bill and Ewa very helpful with advice and guidance. They answered any questions we had, prior to our trip, very promptly. They also advised on some Polish customs and local knowledge that was helpful to know in advance. They also arranged for an additional bed to be available.
We had driven from the UK and, so had access to a car at all times, but the proximity of the town and local resort of Zarabia need to be taken into account when looking at travel arrangements elsewhere. There is a good bus and taxi service from the town, about 2 km from the house.
We were disappointed not to have been informed that there would be no computer access and internet before our arrival as would have brought a lap top with us. Their agent and friend Marek was helpful in arranging to supply one though this was not a great success as reception without wireless not great. The DVD player also only played our DVDs intermittently, something we have found in other European countries as well. Not the end of the world as we hadnt come to the town to watch films?
I believe this is early days for the second house and therefore some adjustments still to be made. Can I make a suggestion that some information is provided in the house on things like rubbish collection days, recycling arrangements and perhaps a local map (oh yes, and a washing line and some pegs please, unless i just never found these!?). It would also be helpful to know whether the expectation is that the house is left as found. I was delighted to find that we would not be expected to clean the house through on leaving, something which is often expected in the UK. I was only disappointed not to meet Bill and Ewa who were not due to arrive in the town until after we left! Thank you again.
We will be visiting again I have no doubt. I hope the town is able to recover fully from the awful floods that occured earlier in the year. There was little evidence of the impact this had had as clearly a lot of work had been done to restore the area around the river but this must have affected local businesses. It is a beautiful area and a treat to visit somewhere that is not just out to fleece the tourists. I found being out of the bustle of a town very relaxing.
