Stara Szkoła w Piaskach

Translated automatically with Google Translate

The living in the guesthouse is characterized by sounds and smells. Freshly baked bread and brewed coffee. Breeze from the lake, mushroom sauce from dinner, fruit cake for dessert. Unleaded wine, fire flames on fire, beer cap from local brewery, mowed grass and laughter of children.

We are sometimes in the list of the most beautiful B & Bs in Poland and we enjoy it immensely, but the best recommendation is returning regular guests. Enjoy the flavors, the ski to Gołdap, the horses to Krzywa, the cross-country skiing, the Łaźna Struga skiing, bicycles and delicious home cooking in an old Prussian school.

Anna Horbik

One day, during a bicycle trip in Mazury Garbate, we noticed an old, brick building right on the shores of Lake Łaśmiady. The lovely ruin turned out to be an old Prussian school. We did not think long. After renovation, it served as a rural enclave, and after years and several improvements - we decided to share it with others.

Since then, we have been accepting guests from Poland and abroad, the F5 magazine has named us among the best places in Poland for holidays, and the Polish Television invited for cooking together. We invite you on holiday.

Where will I sleep?

In the same building, in the former school basement, there is a tavern with a guest refrigerator, a coffee machine and access to... drinks. more

What will I eat?

We try our best to bring our guests to the gastronomic bliss, and we achieve it by breakfast at 9am and dinner at 18. In the meantime, you can eat fruit and always fresh bread or biscuits waiting for the hungry (especially children) in the dining room. And if someone somehow messed up in the belly -... after knowing we fry pancakes ... more

How will I be entertained?

Mazury Garbate is sometimes called Polish Tuscany. And that is true truth, because you never know what will be behind another hill. We propose:
- Kayaking in Łaźna Struga
- bike trip or hike along one of the picturesque Ego Land routes
- swim in one of the surrounding lakes
- fishing trip for fresh fish...
to Sajz or fishing farm in Elk (you can fish yourself)
- Expedition for delicious honey and eggs
- visit the Wolf's Lair and the famous viaducts in Stańczyki
- walk on the lakeside promenade of the Ełk
- cruise on the Augustus lakes
- skiing in beautiful mountain in Gołdap
- trekking with a dog.

What's for children?

We are probably the only school in the world where children do not want to go, but they like to come back. First of all because the parents are here a little different and more allow. And if they allow, we discretely recommend:
- raspberry waffles and whipped cream pancakes
Hill to turl
Cats for stroking
lake for swimming and crazy
- baby cots
- small chairs for quiet eating and eating scattering
- swimming pool
- kicking balls
- mood to dictate.

Old School is a Magic Place. Created by people with passion. Mrs. Ania and Mr. Paweł. Two Good Spirits of this place. We have just returned from a wonderful September trip. Peace and quiet, greenery, beautiful weather. Away from civilization, on a hill, in a picturesque scenery, in a beautiful home. Beautiful interiors, refined in every detail, attention to fitting every detail. Very comfortable and pleasant rooms. An atmospheric patio - a perfect place for morning coffee and a book and an evening glass of wine. Friendly and polite hosts, caring for the well-being of guests, without imposing themselves. We were impressed by the delicious breakfasts, which are prepared by Mrs. Ania with great care, beautifully presented. Fresh bread every day - pastries of Mrs. Ani. I do not want to get up from the table. You can not forget about them for a long time. Dinner is a separate topic. And the icing on the cake - desserts. Revelation. Add to this fairytale sunrise and sunset, and the moon, and we will get an amazing place that is made up of people with great passion. Come. Really worth. Magda, Maciek, Bartek


The hosts are indifferent, common mushrooming and the recommendations of Mr Paweł fantastic! Mrs. Ania conquered our hearts with an aristocratic kitchen based on local ingredients. A very pleasant home atmosphere. The interior décor of the house and its immediate surroundings makes resting there even better. You can see that the satisfaction of guests is a great pleasure for them and that - what's important - comes to them very naturally. We recommend!


A beautiful place, stylishly decorated and without inflatedness. The owners have saved a piece of history and everything with taste, the food is arcpy, beautifully served.


Fantastic place. Breakfast and dinner unforgettable, very nice hosts. Peace and quiet - magical place. Children are not bored. I recommend!


A wonderful place to calm down and detach from reality. Owners will listen to you, feed you, let you cuddle your cats .. Nothing more is needed.


Fantastic place and even more wonderful hosts. Fabulous peace and extraordinary relaxation. This is the place to which we will come back as if on wings.


The place is made up of people - it fits perfectly into the Old School. Mrs. Ania and Mr. Paweł are the best hosts we have had the opportunity to meet when traveling here and there. We have many times wondered how they are overwhelmed and how enthusiasm is there. The kitchen is one great delight and constant surprises. Pension and lake around is magic - at any time of the day is different. We will definitely be back!


I highly recommend it !!! Everything is great and above all absolutely delicious !!!!! The place is even prettier than in the pictures!


The best and most beautiful in the world !!! Everything is here !! Food indescribable! Weather in April as in the middle of July


Absolutely magical place, picturesquely located by the lake, crazy food, bicycles you can take the beautiful surroundings, and silence and peace of mind recharge the batteries. It was wonderful!


I could go back there every two weeks, although it probably would not be good for my weight: / I best remember the view from the sun lounger on the lake, the daily spontaneous campfire, to which Paweł brought a delicious sausage and meals. Mrs. Ania is the master of elegance in the kitchen. I do not know about her getting up to organize it all. Local products, these eggs in droplets, fruit cake still sizzling, ... Great place for families with children, besides many people from abroad, with whom you could talk for hours.


I was at the Old School last vacation. Lovely place - small, kept in a slightly "British" style. Food just phenomenal - it was hard to get up from the table. The people we met - both the owners and the visitors served us hours of interesting conversations. I will definitely go back :)
