This time we want to present to our readers four different places. Each of them represent a different approach to relaxation and has unique value in its offer. Rich Masurian nature, time for yourself, the rich history of the region and its art can be seen in all of these places
In Harmony with Nature
Jabłoń Lake Resort is an oasis of peace and quiet hidden away in the heart of Pisz forest. You can soak up the surrounding nature and relax from the hustle and bustle of the outside world which seems to be a world away from here. It is located in a big area surrounded by pristine nature. It has 500 metres of shoreline beside the crystal clear water of Lake Brzozolasek and a well-developed beach with piers, deck chairs and a comfortable relaxation zone. In Jabłon you can choose three types of accommodation, de lux rooms by the lake, rooms in a Prussian style house or rooms in a Masurian style house. In Jabłoń life goes by in harmony with nature and every season has a different mood. In summer you are delighted by the intensive colours of vigorously flowering greenery and the blue of the crystal lake water where you can go by boat, canoe or peddle boot. If you like, you can rent a bike as well and go on a family trip on one of many picturesque trails, play tennis on professional courts or discover this beautiful area doing some Nordic walking. In autumn you can pick the finest of wild mushrooms in the forest. In winter you are attracted to the fireplace with dancing flames or try a sleigh ride that finishes with roasting a pig and sampling home-made liqueur. You can go cross-country skiing on specially prepared trails and put on ice skates and go ice skating on the frozen lake. Imbirowy Sad restaurant is worth checking out as it pays special attention to the taste of the local seasonal food. On the menu you can find traditional regional dishes and traditional Turkish specialities prepared according to original recipes – what is a nice surprise!
Time For Reflection
One day the host Monica had a life-changing idea and wished to return to her roots, and the rural atmosphere which she recalled from her childhood. She wanted to return to the time when she drank coffee under the apple tree, lay in a hammock, enjoyed the peace and drew inspiration from nature- one of the cleverest of teachers. You stop for a while and see yourself through the looking glass. Isn’t it this what we look for more and more and at all times of the year? That is, what is offered by Moniówka and its local surroundings. It is a land perfect for connoiseurs of life and cuisine. The host invites interesting people such as: yogini Eli and culinary bloggers who appear when the house’s residents want to taste vegan and vegetarian dishes served with flair and passion. Guests can avail of cosy rooms and common space – a kitchen with an adjacent living room with a fireplace where laughs and endless discussion are heard. The philosophy of the place encourages you to join in common cooking. The atmosphere, smell and taste of dishes prepared by the guests themselves are usually very appealing. Everyone will find place for themselves in the garden surrounding Moniówka. In winter you can avail of the sauna originally built in an old granary and then brought from Podhale, which has a wood-fired furnace. In such a place views over the hills of Warmia hills add extra magic. You will just want to stay there or come back another time.
Stroll around the manor’s courtyard
In most castles, palaces and courts there is usually a secret and a story. Dawidy is no exception! It used to belong to an aristocratic German family from Prussia long ago, and also it attracted the present owner. The man in question was travelling through Africa looking for his place on Earth when he felt that going back to the land of his childhood would be the best choice. Then he discovered Dawidy court situated near Pasłęk on the edge of the picturesque Elbląg Uplands. The owner’s passion for local history motivated him to call rooms in Dawidy court after other historical places in Warmia and Masuria. Guests who stay in Dawidy court can stay for a night in Galiny Apartment, Sztynort or the Gładysze room. The price of the accommodation includes court breakfast served in a spacious dining room overlooking the park surrounding the court. The park has its history as well. There are several 300 year old trees on the doorstep and the nature reserve Lenki where you can go cross-country skiing on the bottom of the gorge in which a river flows in summer. This is a very convenient location, as it is very close to Frombork, Elbląg, Malbork, the world famous Elbląg Canal and the Vistula Spit. We highly recommend renting a motorboat that will take you from Frombork to Piaski across the Vistula Lagoon in 20 minutes. Piaski is a small seaside village not far from the bustling seaside resorts so you can have the best of both worlds if you wish, peace and play in one.
In Search of Something Different
While looking for a unique experience and wishing to sample a little luxury, let’s enjoy art, relax and go to four -star Willa Port Art & Business Hotel. The hotel is located on the shores of Lake Drwęckie in Ostróda close to a bike and hiking path. The facility is something more than a usual hotel- it is a mix of an Art & Business which is continually put into practice. Willa Port offers not only luxurious rooms and a wide range of Spas but also delicious cuisine. Guests can participate in unique artistic and cultural events, author meetings, vernissages and concerts. Good relaxation is not only guaranteed by the great location and high quality of service but also by regular meetings with broadly conceived culture. That’s why the idea of a hotel gallery and numerous artistic events were born. In the gallery in Willa Port you can see artists’ works including the works of regional artists. Art is present at every step. Furnished in a very specific style is the Trattoria La Riva restaurant offering delicious Italian food and worth trying. The restaurant’s guests can listen to Italian music or live music inspired by sunny Italy. It all makes Willa Port Art &Business one of the most interesting places to stay in Warmia and Masuria.
