this 700 year old castle is one of the most interesting and important houses in Southern Poland. The beautiful countryside is great for biking, hiking, riding, swimming, skiing - and also for relaxing. It's a wonderful welcoming place for children
We accept dogs, but you must pay 10 euros a night. There is no Airbnb setting for this, so pay us when you come. This is because dogs ALWAYS require extra cleaning, even well-behaved ones!
Also, the dog must never be left unsupervised in the room. We can arrange a big, enclosed safe space in a barn if you want to go somewhere without your dog.
We recycle. Plastic, glass, paper, all separated. Uneaten food goes to our chickens and turkeys. They NEED eggshells too, so don't throw those away.
This is a family home not a hotel. Relax, and don't be too demanding! Well mannered people don't need to be told a set of rules, so we have none, apart from no smoking in the rooms.
We have small children, who speak English and Polish, a dog who barks - but never bites, two sheep and a cat. If you bring a dog, your dog mustn't chase the chickens, geese, turkeys, guinea fowl.
You will have your own kitchen, access to a washing machine and so on, your own private space. There are also four hectares (10 acres) of grounds.
You can keep yourselves to yourselves, but we're friendly helpful people too, and very proud of what we have achieved in the rescue of this important, historic old house, and keen to share our enthusiasm for it.
I'm an English author turned historic house restorer (and I'll write about this amazing Big House adventure soon too).
