The house was absolutely stunning and spotlessly clean. Sara and Witek went to no end of trouble in telling us about the history of the area and places to go and see and restaurants to eat in. They then arranged for our grand daughter to ride on their donkeys up and down their fields past their goats and pigs. It was a day she will never forget. The house is very comfortable with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. With a lovely kitchen and dining area, we also used the out door bbq a few times. All in all a fantastic house run by lovely friendly people in a beautiful part of Poland. Thank you Sara and witek. James Walsh

The owner Mac, Mac was incredibly helpful from start to finish , answering any questions promptly. We loved our first visit to Poland and wouldn't hesitate to return if the opportunity arose. It was a little warm during our visit and it was unfortunate that the AirCon was out of use, but other than that we had great stay!
