“Iwona and Konrad have a wonderful cottage in a small village. It was an ideal location that allowed us to experience life in a Polish village and yet close enough to Krakow that we could easily drive into do sightseeing there. Iwona did everything to make the trip easy for us. The house was spotlessly clean and she had filled the refrigerator with Polish foods and desserts. The communication for our trip was excellent. Konrad and Iwona answered every question and sent us google maps so that we could easily locate everything we needed. This was a wonderful exchange and the people made the biggest difference. Thank you to Iwona and Konrad.”
Iwona's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Consiglio vivamente uno scambio con Iwona, abbiamo trascorso nella sua confortevole casa 6 giorni. Il posto è rilassante immerso nel verde, la casa pulita e con tutti i confort. Iwona e la sua famiglia ci hanno fatto una grande accoglienza, hanno preparato la cena per noi e per tutto il tempo della nostra permanenza siamo rimasti in contatto, i suoi preziosi consigli ci hanno fatto godere al meglio la zona. Sono sicura che se sceglierete uno scambio con loro, non ve ne pentirete. Grazie ancora Danila Gianni e Micol”
Where is it?
The surrounding is a green, peaceful and picturesque area with mountains, woods and lakes, which enables you activities like Nordic walking, skiing, canoing. You can rent a boat or a water bike and explore the lakes as you wish. A nearby located Zar Mountain offers many sports activities - you can for example do or watch paragliding, learn gliding in a very good gliding school, use a luge path, children's playground or do skiing. There are a few small grocery shops not far from the house and some others in the town centre. For those who like shopping, there is a big shopping mall in Bielsko –Biala city 17 km away from our town offering a wide variety of well known international brands. Our house has a very convenient location in terms of Polish most valuable tourist attractions – in a vicinity of 4 monuments featuring on a UNESCO world cultural heritage list, meaning the royal city of Krakow/Cracow (just 75 km away from our house) with the royal castle Wawel being a seat of Polish monarchs over the centuries and the old town Krakow. Another very worldwide known place to visit is the German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp Auschwitz-Birkenau located in Oswiecim (only 30 km away from our house) . Then there are Royal Salt Mines Wieliczka and Bochnia (75 km distant) founded in the 13th century and offering the visitors magnificent salt chambers and chapels to see underground. The fourth UNESCO cultural heritage site is recognized as a unique mannerist architectural and landscape complex in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska (about 40 km away) – founded about 1602 is as a composition of a baroque architecture and beauty of a natural environment. It is a Calvary, a Sanctuary visited by millions of pilgrims and visitors every year and was a place especially beloved by the pope John Paul II. All these sites annually attract millions of people from all over the world.
Being in our house you also have an opportunity to see Wadowice - the family town of Pope John Paul II where he was born and grew up. His family house is made available for the tourists to visit it. And this is also just a short drive from our house – 25 km.
For children (and adults too)I reccommend a fantastic entertainment park in Inwald (just 25 minutes drive) spreading on a large area and offering numerous leisure options to play and also to learn by having fun. Parents can rest in beautifully designed gardens. My son really loves this place.
