Self-catering holidays in Poland

One of the best things about self-catering holidays in Poland is being able to explore the country at your own convenience and pace, and see exactly those things of interest to you.

The south of Poland, where our self-catering holiday let is located, is an area of hilly and mountainous terrain between Cracow, Zakopane and Kroscienko and Szczawnica.

This is the land of the Highlander or gorale people who used to be shepherds. Nowadays, they still dress up for tourists. You see them in their colorful embroidered woollen garb, offering horse and cart or sleigh rides through the snow, in the regional restaurants, steering rafts on the river.


Our holiday home is in the spa and ski town of Rabka Zdroj, about two thirds of the way along the main highway from Cracow to Zakopane.

It's an excellent central base for exploring this part of Poland. Hire a car from the airport, or locally, and every day can be a new adventure.
