When I thought that I had seen all the beauty, ate the best local specialties and nothing could surprise me, I went to Stara Szkoła guesthouse in Wysoka Wieś.
“Stara Szkoła” translated from Polish means “an ancient school” and it’s a place that has been brought back to life by a lovely couple, Ewa and Jacek. Decades ago the building used to serve as a school for the kids from the village. Nowadays it’s a peaceful guesthouse surrounded with greenery and forest.
The place is super cozy and feels like home. The owners sit with their guests and tell them stories. There are only five rooms to rent so it is very easy to make friends with other guests. Way better than a hotel!
If you love nature and wood you will love the rooms and interiors too. The house is full of wooden furniture and decorations, even the ceiling and the walls are covered in wood. Stara Szkoła is an endless mine of beautiful items, whichever room you go to, you will find something interesting: old decorations, bottles of alcohol, hoary photos in framed hanged on the walls.
Stara Szkoła is a place for couples, friends, families with kids. There is a lot of space to play, relax and walk around. Nature admirers will be in the 7th heaven!
Something that makes this place outstanding and unique is the cuisine. Everything that you see on your table is homemade, healthy and delicious. Are you on a gluten free diet? No problem! Everybody will find something good for themselves.
I have to emphasize that the food served there is one of the best I have eaten, and I am a foodie! Raspberry syrups, loafs of bread full of seeds, smooth hummus, mouthwatering cookies, sweet tomatoes from their own garden…
The rates are: 120 PLN (around 27-30 EUR) per person in a double or triple room, if you are coming alone you will pay 180 (around 43-45 EUR) PLN. The price includes a rich breakfast.
If you want to have a dinner, it is 100 PLN per person (around 23-25 EUR) and includes a starter, soup, main course and dessert.
