IN THE KNOW
All have been individually designed, but we love the Mountain Ash house the most with hand cladded clay walls.
Books, books and a few more books - perfect for lazy hammoc afternoons. The digital detox is being taken seriously here so leave the equipment at home and set yourself for TV and internet free stay! Instead plenty of walking gear will do you good.

For anyone driving we would recommend following the driving instructions provided by the owners since online navigation sometimes fail. The nearest railway stations are at Puławy (15km away) and Nałęczów (12km) or buses from Warsaw take you Kazimierz Dolny (15km) and travelling from Lublin your nearest stop will be Karmanowice (2km).
There is plenty to do nearby for anyone wanting to explore the area. The charming town of Kazimierz Dolny picturesquely set on the banks of Vistula River and famed for its rich music and film tradition has been attracting the artistic crowd for years. The cobbled streets are filled with cozy cafes, quaint art galleries and jazzy bars often frequented by Warsaw folk as a weekend getaway. There is also a spa town of Naleczow with beatuiful park and architecture, the village of Janowiec with its Renesissance castle and Czartoryski family castle make for an interesting day trip. For anyone keen on more outdoor activities there is horse riding, ski slope and plenty of cycling routes too.
