What the Manichatki radio station broadcast is an important message. A message for those who in the everyday rush and run after a better tomorrow while concerned about yesterday, they tend to forget that everyday life can take place at a natural pace, and the "dolce far niente" (just do nothing) is not an oxymoron, it`s a way of life instead, dears!
Imagine the endless expanse of greenery, the beech forests of the Low Beskids, numerous mountain springs and streams, and among them cottages looking at the world with turquoise eyes. In the place of the historical Lemko village, I created Manichatki. Unique, cut off the intrusive civilization area, and huts from over 100 years old logs built on top of it. In one, we live with Mania, and we give two to you. This year, our new acquisition - Manichatka Sowa, or Mana Sowa's hut, officially accepts wanderers lost in the city. It has space for 6 people willing to talk, long wanderings, cooking, reading books and observing what is squeaking in the grass.
Along the way, birds cast shadow spots on forest paths, clouds like cotton candy suspended in the sky meadows swaying in the wind, concerts for two or more crickets, stars that indicate the direction of belated wanderers, the smell of freshly cut grass. Here you will encounter the miracle of nature and see with your own eyes how the present intertwines with history. Ropki is a mix of cultures: Łemkowie, Pogórzanie, Bojkowie. The villages still bear traces of old Lemko highways, roadside crosses, chapels, the church and cemeteries hidden among the trees.
I can not promise you eternity, but I can provide a few respite moments. Manichatki are waiting.
The motivation to find a secluded place on earth was my 12-year-old daughter. Manuela is a born artist - sculptor, painter, dancer and horse charmer. Looking for a farm for us, I was longing for the carefree holidays spent in my nanny's home village - Florynka. I found a place for our new home just a few kilometers away, in Ropki, an old Lemko settlement.
Everything went uphill, it was good for the Beskid Niski. I managed, however, to buy the old swap and from its old boards create two houses - for me and Mańka, and for guests. Only the question of the name remained. After a lengthy thought process, there was finally a revelation. After all, all this was created by and for my Mana. That's how Manichatki was born.

In a wooden house for guests, which I tried to create with love and attention to detail. Mr. Edek, as usual, was the top-man builder on top of it - of course. There would have been nothing created and made without him round here. The roof was built by Jurek - aka Elvis. With the help of these top ladz,... I fulfilled the dream of creating a comfortable, cozy and functional sister for the first Mana Hut. In Manichatka Owl you will not find crazy technologies and high-gloss furniture. The place has its soul, old wood, the roof is covered by old tiles, awry walls, some bricks, old stones and almost 100-year-old boards. You can find peace in it, the most beautiful sunrises for which it is definitely worth getting up, quieting and returning to nature. At your disposal is a house for a total of 6 people, but a romantic weekend for a couple will be a breathtaking idea. For a family, a group of friends, acquaintances of friends, friends and sisters and brothers.
At the bottom you will find an open space, and there a kitchen, dining room and living room with a goat and a view of the blue one in one. Next to the bathroom with shower. At the top in the space of Morpheus there is also an open space and 6 sleeping places. 2 double and 2 single beds, a little slants and a view of grassiness, softness of moss, waving trees and swallows flying over the fields.
The house wraps around a wooden terrace like a ribbon, which in the summer is a favorite place to read books, dry mushrooms, tan pale faces and eat fruit from nearby orchards.
Come and feel good, fill this house with joy, happiness, laughter, peace and all the good that you have in yourself.
Take your pets with you, they'll be fine here.more

Boredom combats the desire to learn about our interesting historical and natural terrain. You can go Nordic Walking along the trail of old... cemeteries, which are located on the slopes of the mountains. Hidden among forests are places of really quiet rest.
- Fans of mountain expeditions are encouraged to choose the red Beskid trail, ie the longest tourist route in Poland, running from Ustroń to Wołosate in the Bieszczady Mountains. The route is about 496 km long, so it is not recommended to take all the peaks and mountain passages, but it is definitely worth taking a hiking course to Hańczowa, where there is an antique wooden Orthodox church, belonging to the Małopolska wooden architecture route. For fans of mountain bikes, the route on Kozie Żebro, which is approximately 30 km long, There are many ways to calm down and reach inside yourself.

The breeding shows and equestrian competitions will also be very interesting, which take place in the stud at the end of May (Majówka in Regietów) and in September (Hutsul Days).
