Comfortable vacation house with scenic views of the Sola River and Beskid Maly mountains is equipped with all the modern conveniences (including wheelchair access) and offers its guests a restful environment.
The guest house, which was finished in 2015, includes 120m² of living space, a large lot with a stand of original growth birch trees, parking places (2 inside and 1 off of the lot) and an outdoor fireplace/ grill.
The rooms are modern and functional: an open living/dining area with fireplace and sofa bed opens onto the terrace; two bedrooms with two single beds; an open kitchen equipped with refrigerator, dishwasher, stove with oven; two bathrooms with shower. Upon request, a baby bed can be provided. The whole house is heated by floor heating.
The guest house is suitable for wheelchairs:
- front door access via a ramp
- all rooms are wheelchair accessible (all rooms are located on one level, the doors have no thresholds, the width of the doors and freedom of movement meet DIN standards)
- one bathroom is handicap equipped (includes the necessary handrails and sanitary facilities according to DIN standards)
- one bedroom is especially equipped (two single beds at the proper height for wheelchair users according to DIN standards).
The guest house is located ca. 10 minutes from the center of Porabka (various shops, a church and a local pharmacy, as well as a health center with general practitioners and specialized doctors) and ca. 2 minutes away from a bus stop. In the immediate vicinity is a regionally well-known bakery offering traditional bread and baked goods. Nevertheless, the neighborhood is a quiet one with only a few other single family homes. This is a private, peaceful environment, offering recreation for nature lovers.
The large fenced garden is convenient for families with children. The Wielka Puszcza stream, loved by the locals for its beauty, is approximately a 10 minute walk away from the house. The stone terraces with wading pools and nearby amenities are a tourist attraction. Especially in summer, the site offers a unique opportunity for relaxing by the water.
Upstream, approximately 30 minutes by foot, is the unique trout farm “Beskidzki Pstrag”. There it is possible to learn all about trout farming and also to catch and grill one’s own fish.
A soccer field, as well as volleyball, basketball, handball and tennis courts which are located by the nearby elementary school and the children’s recreation center (Dom Wczasow Dzieciecych), are open to the public.
Porabka is a well-known, scenic location nestled in the Beskidy-Mountains near the first water retention dam “Porabka” in Poland. Two nearby lakes (the Miedzybrodzkie and the Zywieckie), are perfect for a variety of water sports. The mountains also offer endless possibilities of excursions for bikers, hikers, skiers and even hang-gliders (from Zar-Hill). Zar-Hill, with its beautiful view of the valley and lake, offers all amenities for skiers and snow boarders including: lift, ski and snowboard rental, service, ski school and ski kindergarten “Dimbo”. In summer, the high-wire climbing garden “Trollandia”, the toboggan track slide and the inner tube water slide, provide fun and entertainment for the whole family. At the base of the Zar-Hill is a small airport with a sailplane training school.
