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!

Travel to Poland

There are a vast range of cheap flights to Poland available on almost all airlines providing flights out of the UK. Depending on the exact location of your holiday rental accommodation in Poland, Gdansk (GDN), Krakow (KRK), Szczecin (SZZ) or Warsaw (WAW) have a great range of flights available, and once you are in the country, there are many trains, car hire and coaches linking the airports to various destinations around Poland.

Lovely located warm apartment.

4 of 5
We took the train from the airport to Krakow, this was straight forward, then walked to the apartment. Met by the cleaners who didn't speak a word of English. However we managed to get through. Very clean and extremely warm apartment. Just three friendly suggestions, blinds need changing both were broken. Bigger duvet on bed. And some useful telephone numbers, e.g. Doctors, Emergency numbers. Don't rely on the television no English Channels this didn't matter to us. Great location walking distance to most things, supermarket two minutes away. We used free walking tours, one to Jewish Quarters and one of the Old Town. Both very informative and interesting. Visited Salt Mines tried to make our own way there but this didn't work out. Used one of the tours, a must to visit. Five days was long enough, although we didn't see everything. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family
