The Cottage Retreat
Lovely lovingly restored traditional listed polish house in Myslenice close to krakow (30 minutes). Dont take our word for it Check our other house "the retreat and the reviews from our visitors over the last 10 years. the support you get staying at the house is second to none, this is very important. Our English speaking parents in law manage the property when we are not there and everyone has commented from our other Polish house how helpful they are should you need any help with anything.
There is so much to do in this part of Poland, most comment two weeks is not enough time and we have regular returning visitors to our properties from all over the world. Krakow with the largest square in Europe, its castle, the Jewish quarter are a must for a couple of days. the rafting between Poland and Slovakia is breathtaking and not dangerous, Polish mountain men in traditional clothes punt you down river for two hours between the mountains.
The salt mine with its endless carved chambers and underground carved church and museum is everyones favourite. Zakopane with its high mountains and James Bond cable car to the summit, the restaurants mountain men and summer walking or winter skiing. Aushwitz and Berken are an hour away sobering but most agree a life changing experience to visit. the local town of Myslenice is very much a Polish town where you will not be charged tourist prices like Krakow. A top restaurant comes to roughly ten pounds a head for a good steak and a couple of pints or glasses of wine or of course polish vodka. You can walk back to the house in 15 minutes from the centre.
There is a new ski slope a mile from the house and plenty of other slopes within an hours drive, we are having more guests each winter for the ski season as the prices for passes and good ski equipment hire are fantastically low still in Poland. a great place to get your kids taught by English speaking instructors, our children learnt snowboarding and skiing at a local slope 15 minutes away at 10 pounds for one hour including instructor and hire of equipment. Please e mail us via villarenters to ask any questions about the area or house, we can arrange pretty much anything for you , bike hire, horse riding, white water rafting, mountain climbing, ski instruction etc. regards Bill
