Make holiday rental accommodation or self catering property in Poland your home away from home

Poland is a land of contrasts, marking the imaginary boundary between east and west. Whatever your tastes in holiday, from sun drenched beach holidays to cultural or sporting breaks, there is a holiday in Poland to suit. The hospitality is very warm, and travel cheap, yet the facilities and entertainment options are first class. There are remarkably few places where modern living and traditional cultures merge so effortlessly, and the combination is both fascinating and very comfortable to investigate. This is only a very rough guide to Poland, as there is simply too much on offer on a Polish holiday to mention in one sitting! However, one thing is for certain, if you take accommodation in Poland, you will be very tempted to return every year.

Things to do on holiday in Poland

There is always a huge amount of things to do in Poland, but what entertainment is available is dependant on the season. However, throughout the year, the natural beauty of the countryside and the wonderful architecture and atmosphere in the ancient cities of Poland endear tourists to Poland, and keep them returning to their Polish rental accommodation year after year. Tourism in Poland’s cities revolves around the countries rich cultural heritage, including famous operas, concerts and theatrical productions.

During the summer months, accommodation in Poland is most popular with those who love lazy days on the beach. The Baltic Sea is lined with fine sandy beaches which become very popular when the sun shines. As with the vast majority of Poland, the Baltic Coastline remains wonderfully unspoilt, yet you can find all the facilities and water sports options you could wish for along the coastal resorts like Gdansk, Slupsk and Koszalin. A tour of Poland’s Baltic coastline will also allow you to visit some of the finest health resorts in Europe.

The mountains of southern Poland are ideal for adventures of many sorts. Mountain biking has found a home in Poland’s Sudety Mountains, especially on the highest peak, Mount Sniezka. Horse riding holidays also thrive here, travelling on Poland’s native horse, the huculy. However, it is Poland’s hiking options which have caused the mountain accommodation of Poland to become some of the most popular places to stay in Europe. Nature lovers will be captivated by the stunning scenery, blanketed in indigenous flora and fauna in summer and a layer of thick, virgin snow in winter. The remote Bieszczadyare some of the most remote mountainous areas in Europe, and filled with magnificent animals, from wolves to brown bears. The Bieszczadzki National Park encompasses much of the area, protecting it for future generations to enjoy the magnificent hiking and horse riding in the park.

The lake country, in the centre of Poland, is the main sailing, kayaking and fishing locations, and from this vantage point, discovery of much of the rest of the country, and all it has to offer.

Places to travel in Poland

The southernmost region of Poland is home to the towering peaks of the Carpathian Mountains, which are filled with sporting options and captivating tales of folklore. Here, walking, cycling and horse riding holidays thrive, and where better to discover true rural Poland that in the mountains, living in the small communities and learning from their expertise and joining in with their delightful cultures for a few weeks?

Weather in Poland

Poland’s moderate climate is perfect for those who do not like it too hot. In summer, temperatures are blissfully warm, averaging around 20oC, although daily peaks do rise up to around 30oC on most days. If you take accommodation in Poland during the winter, be prepared for some cold weather. Average temperatures in the coastal regions are around 0oC, but in the mountains, temperatures can average as little as -7oC, so pack a good jumper!

Comfortable, homely apartment in the centre of the city.

5 of 5
Unique and charming apartment with everything you need and situated right in the heart of the city. Despite such a central location the apartment is quiet as it is located at the back of the building. Thee owners are delightful, and made us feel very much at home. As made clear in the advert there is no lift, just stairs (80 we counted), which may be an issue for some, but for everyone else I would say this homely apartment is a perfect base to explore the city.

Great little find in Krackow

5 of 5
This apartment ticked all the boxs for our week in Krackow. The location was close enough to walk to the main square or river but wasn't in any roads with loud bars. The apartment was lovely and had everything you needed to feel at home, and going away with an adult son it was good that he had a separate en suite bathroom at the other end of the apartment. Thanks Jan and Josephine for helping make our trip a great one.
