Manichatki - Chatka Mani

Translated automatically with Google Translate

There was a Lemko village full of beautiful peaks back in the day. Around the greenery, beech forests of the Low Beskids, loads of mountain springs and streams, views that are a bit hard to believe. The villages are gone, but there are Manichatki, houses from one`s dreams, blinking turquoise shutters to the surprised natural beauty of wanderers, because these mountain springs, streams and views are still here.

Fall in love with these beech forests, which in spring swells with greenery, and in the fall they are crazy with colors, without any resistance, as if they boasted with the creation at the ball. Shout quietly at the sight of the deer and roe deer passing by, which they have here in paradise. Be silent when you see the wolf and admire the bear softly. Yes, it happens here sometimes. Meet the mix of cultures, because these places were shaped by the Lemkos, Pogorzans and Boykos. Admire the old Lemko clises, roadside crosses and chapels, churches and magical cemeteries hidden among trees.

We are here and in case of what we will show what we have not been able to describe. Welcome.


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.

Where will I sleep?

In a wooden house for guests, which I tried to create with love and attention to detail. The hero of the decade and my master was Mr. Edek - builder, carpenter, artist-carpenter. We have fulfilled the dream of creating a comfortable, cozy and functional village cottage. There is no crazy technology and... furniture for gloss, but there is 100-year-old wood, brick and mental detox.

At your disposal are three apartments, which together will accommodate 13 people. The third room is located on the ground floor, on the top there are two five-bed rooms, all with independent bathrooms.

Plant Room (ground floor)
Everyone knows that the ragged nerves should be treated with a lemon balm, and stress relieves the passion and ginseng. In this room, we went into a herb. This is a place of complete rest in a country style. Omnipresent wood is combined here with old bricks and ropes made of natural string. The walls are decorated with pictures of Polish herbs, and the bathroom has a mirror made of an old window. In detail:
- Triple apartment with one double and one single bed. There is no capacity for extra beds in the room.
- Room has a south-facing terrace.
- The equipment includes a table with three chairs, a large wardrobe, a stool and an independent bathroom with a shower.

Those who enjoy walking in the clouds, wind in their hair and total freedom are welcome to our rooms upstairs. From the south there is the Butterfly Room, and from the north there is the Bird Room. The view from the windows lets off the legs. It will be hard for you to spot people from them, but you can easily see the herd of deer and our cat-strayer Janusz.

- These are two large comfortable five-bed rooms with mezzanines.
- In each apartment there are: one double and one single bed, additionally a double mattress on the mezzanine. There is no capacity for extra beds in the room.
- The equipment of both rooms includes a large wardrobe, bedside tables, a stool and an independent bathroom with shower.

We made sure that the common space, in other words the kitchen, as in every home, was a cozy place for meetings, integration and drought-inducing smells. It is located on the ground floor and allows you to cook both scrambled eggs and scallops in white wine. It is functional and equipped with modern appliances and a wood-burning stove. The kitchen is connected to the lounge room, where you can enjoy an unforgettably pleasant time by the fireplace, hot or cool wine and sweet cocoa.

What will I eat?

We give you great freedom, because you can eat anything you like. In the house, on the ground floor there is a shared kitchen with a dining room, a wood stove and a fireplace that you do not want to leave. Everyone knows that the best parties run in the kitchen until the morning, so we have created a... space for you to meet, cook together, integrate and talk about life. We are here for our and your convenience:
- gas cooker with oven,
- wood-burning stove with a plate,
- fridge, dishwasher, sink, pots and
- pans and all the dishes needed for sacking.
Provision for filling the kitchen you can find:
- in a village shop in Hańczowa, about 3 km away,
- shops, delicatessens and supermarkets in Wysowie-Zdrój and Uście Gorlicki, about 5 km away.
If you adhere to the principle that you do not cook on vacation, you can order food in a neighboring guesthouse.
In nearby Wysów you will find a large selection of restaurants. We recommend this in the Old House
Spa - pride.

Our land gives ideal conditions for the production of delicious food. All interested organic products such as eggs, milk, cow and sheep cheese can be recommended for farms in Roky specializing in their production.

How will I be entertained?

- 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 we do not recommend taking 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 wooden architecture of Lesser Poland. For fans of mountain bikes, the route on Kozie Żebro, which is approximately 30 km long, will be attractive. Apparently, the original name was given to this summit by Austrian cartographers who found on it a skeleton of deer, commonly referred to as a goat here.
- There are many ways to calm down and get to yourself in Ropki. For example, you can take part in meditations organized in the Buddhist Retreat Center. This is one of several dozens of meditative centers of the Buddhist Diamond Connection Line of the Karma Kagyu Line operating in our country. Personality and mind training is here at your fingertips.
- In both summer and winter you can enjoy the benefits of the Hutsul Horse Stud "Gładyszów" in Regietów. It is here in the Beskid Niski that this small horse with a huge heart can develop its wings. If you want to try your hand at the saddle, you can sign up for horse riding. For skeptics of trips on the ridge, carriage rides will be ideal. In winter, you can not miss the Hutsul sleigh. 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).
- We can not omit all the mountain attractions that await you in the vicinity of Ropki. Just 13 kilometers from here is Krynica Zdrój, whose famous Spa Park and Pijalnia with healing mineral waters are known throughout the country. Both in summer and winter, Jaworzyna Krynica and Słotwiny enjoy great interest. Well-prepared ski slopes attract enthusiasts of winter sports, mulled wine and beautiful views.
- Book a moment for a visit to the highlander hut in Zdynia. The whole summer season, highlanders graze sheep, you can also see there a real "chicken" hut. We recommend trying Żętnika, Buncu and oscypek.
If that was not enough, you can also be tempted by:
- visiting wooden historic sacred buildings - Wooden Architecture Route,
 - a trip to the reservoir in Klimkówka, where you can break your screen on the beach and rent water bikes,
- bee-keeping science in Sądecki Bartnik, or bee-keeping museum,
- ski games on Smerkowiec or Magura Małastowska,
- a trip to our Slovak neighbors to visit one of the oldest spas in the world - Bardejovské Kúpele. The first mention of Bardejov's sources comes from 1247.

What's for children?

Children in Manichatka are to experience partial amnesia and forget about the existence of smartphones and tablets. They will move in time and appreciate nature. They will run freely on the meadow, dip their hands in the stream and play in the mud. Observe grazing cows, look for black storks and bury... secrets made of slides, stones and flowers on the farm.

In summer, they can also:
- learn horse riding on the wonderful Hucul horses in the Hutsul Horse Stud "Gładyszów" in Regietów, and take part in workshops where they will learn how not to be afraid of the horse and how it is with this sugar and where the horse has a front, where the back.
- Enlist your parents in a rope park in Krynica.
- Sprinkle in the Water Park in Wysów - Zdrój.
- Take the queue to Jaworzyna, where are the best fries with ketchup in the world.
- Try if the health is tasty, tasting the healing waters in nearby spas.
- Bake the potatoes in the campfire.
- Get to know the culture of the region in the open-air museum in Szymbark.

A very charming place with a "soul", helpful and affectionate hostess, beautiful views, around mountain trails, peace and quiet. Rooms and bathroom decorated with taste and comfortable, fully equipped kitchen.


A perfect place to relax a total. Almost in the middle of nowhere, among the beautiful hills of the Low Beskids there are three huts. Around the enormity of space created for our dog's madness. And this wonderful crackling fire in the fireplace !!!


A wonderful place with a soul can be turned off. You can laze or wander. Everything you need is in place. I was yesterday and today I want to go back.


A perfect place to turn off. I am a neurotic and usually a vacation trip did not involve a full rest, but here the silence, peace and views (!) Allowed me to fully relax for the first time. The week has passed far too soon, I think that next year we will be back for a long time :) As for the cottage itself, it is equipped with everything you may need. Also if someone wants to go sightseeing or spend more time actively, there are plenty of opportunities in the area (and the tourist trails are practically deserted!).


Revelation! You can not imagine a better place to rest and break away from reality. No range, no TV, no radio ... Super !! During the day is where to walk, in the evening you can have a good time with the rest of the family near the fireplace :) We will definitely come back ..


An ideal place for people looking for the opportunity to cut themselves off from civilization. The pictures do not fully reflect the charm of the hut, which is refined in the smallest details, nor the atmosphere of peace and quiet prevailing in the area.


A beautiful and very cozy house in a wonderful area. We highly recommend and even though we left 12h ago we are already thinking about going back.


A wonderful, atmospheric place. Manichatki perfectly integrated in the landscape. Nature outside and inside, the smell of wood. Views that soothe. Silence. Birds, animal sounds. Rooms decorated with taste. (they look better than in the pictures


Manichatki is a place from which you do not want to leave. A wonderful, wooden house is very cozy, morning coffee on a swing overlooking the mountains does not taste as good anywhere, and you could eat breakfast at a beautiful wooden table for hours. There are beautiful mountains around which you can wander endlessly and find a starry sky in Warsaw. A week's stay is definitely not enough to enjoy this place. I left with tears in my eyes. I hope I will be back soon. I miss you already!


MANICHATKI is a wonderful place - located in the buffer zone of the mountains and under the sky full of falling stars. This is where the "slow" mode is activated and you can not go out for a few days. The cottage has a dining room with kitchenette (additional kitchen for wood - a childhood memory) and a two-sided fireplace. During the construction of a small lounge, where it will be wonderfully spread out on the sofa and in the autumn or winter evenings by the fireplace, look at the mountains. The cottage has three rooms with bathrooms decorated in a beautiful style, bielusieńka bedding, comfortable beds and quiet mezzanines in the rooms upstairs. Just open the window to flirt with nature: feel the crystalline air, touch the mountains, talk to crazy swallows and caress the starry sky. You can also sit on the terrace with coffee, immerse yourself in thoughts on a wooden swing or set out on the trail. Mrs. Dominiko, what a great idea Mrs. realizes! We keep our fingers crossed so that this place will flourish.


Beautiful, secluded, quiet place, great views from the chalet, just want to be, look, soak up. The area is ideal for leisurely walks, tramps here and there, and on the way to Wysowa, an elderly lady sells a homemade cake :) We have for example a bicycle trip through the mountains and forest to Slovakia, which is a stone's throw away. However, those who prefer stationary stays will certainly be satisfied. The house itself is decorated with taste, rural atmosphere, and at the same time there is everything you need to feel comfortable. Mega comfortable mattress, soft bedding, I slept there :) We want to come back here in the autumn, it must be even more beautiful there then :)


A great place to relax from the city noise. A hutful house in the middle of a large clearing, with beautiful rooms that will satisfy even the most demanding guest. Around beautiful forests, farms where you can buy fresh cheese, eggs and meet great people. Mrs. Dominika, kindest owner, will definitely tell you where to go and what to visit. I recommend those who like offline holidays;)


The house is very atmospheric, very clean, tastefully furnished and has a well-equipped kitchen. During our stay we were in the house alone so we could feel completely at ease. The perfect one will be found when renting by the whole group. A huge living room with a large wooden table, fireplace and orangery (under construction) will be perfect for shared meals or board games. The area is full of wild meadows and forests. The owner of the cottage was very nice and helpful. For those who want to work on a problem, there may be a lack of coverage and poorly functioning internet. Work around the house and the terrace is still under construction, because the owner builds a second house nearby. If everything is finished it will be one of the most charming places in the Low Beskids.


A house that greeted us with the smell of cake and a smile. Omnipresent wood, beautiful colors, wonderful views. I was looking for a place where I would rest my spirit, take my dog, take a walk, I will marry, I will surround myself with silence. Here is everything. And Manichatki are unique. Because they are not one of the wooden houses standing somewhere on the hillside in a row. Here is the house. Built with attention to detail, beautiful, hospitable and cozy - you want to be in it. I want to cook here and feast at a big table in the kitchen. It's close to the resorts, but the hiking trails, the sound of the stream and the surrounding nature are nicer. Very clean, complete equipment, hearty hostess, wonderful!


An extremely charming place! Wild nature, peace. The house is decorated with an exceptional taste, comfortable and nice, very clean. In the room below you can hear every little sound from above - you have to take into account if you do not rent the whole house. Hosts very nice. A place worth recommending.
