                                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                                              We had an excellent time staying at the Mill House. Sara and Witek were very welcoming, and the apartment was spacious and comfortable. We used the location as a base for exploring the surrounding area. There is excellent walking in the Karkonosze mountains within easy reach, and historical sites such as Gross-Rosen and the fascinating city of Wroclaw are well placed for day trips; and there are numerous small towns and villages worth visiting. One can also almost accidentally find oneself over the border in the Czech Republic or Germany. For a first time visitor to the country, the quality and variety of Polish beers was something of a revelation, not to mention vodka of course. I would have no hesitation in recommending a visit.
