If Gizewo were in Mallorca, the local spell would be "tranquila, cariño, tranquila!". But luckily Gizewo is in Masuria and instead we keep repeating: "take it easy, no nerves, there is time for everything". We have a Sunday here every day, we eat every breakfast as if it is Christmas, and from the afternoon we devote ourselves to radical contemplation of couches, sunbeds and hammocks stretched between the trees. This is how we live here, slowly, in our own way, a bit like in a fairy tale - in an idyllic house overlooking a pond, horses chewing grass and tails wagging dogs. The icing on the cake are peacocks looking at the windows. If, like us, you value other people more than labels, the welfare of animals more than leather on furniture, you put peace of mind above all else, we will surely get along. Maybe we don't have luxuries here, but we care about comfort, coziness and good memories. Come to Gishewo for freckles on the nose, smoked fish, pizza from the oven and the holiest of peace.

Here Slowhop will describe your place

Host:
Donata
The history of this place is trivial and similar to hundreds of others: I am from Masuria, my husband from Podkarpacie, we are 25 years old, we work in Warsaw, we fall in love with each other, but my longing for Masuria takes over. We run away to the countryside and find this neglected and forgotten place by God and people. For 13 years we have been coming, weeding, cleaning, renovating and saving whatever we can. We live out of suitcases, in a car, with 3 children, 2 dogs, 3 horses and 2 cats. Here and there. But always together. By the fire we plan the next day, the next embellishments and we recharge ourselves with peace. I love nature, the smell of fog, I listen more willingly than I speak and I do more than I promise. I will do anything for animals, I won't cut down a tree, I won't fall asleep without a book and I won't get up without coffee. My husband (normally in Warsaw) is the "frontman" during the season: he entertains guests, takes care of the wine, untangles fishing rods, makes a fire, and plays the handpan. It is thanks to him that Gizewo looks the way it does now, he is responsible for higher matters, and I am responsible for everyday life. We are looking for guests like us: with a book in hand, with a camera in hand, with passions that we can listen to for hours around the campfire. Without labels and unnecessary pomp, respecting animals and nature. You are looking for peace and quiet - we have it in abundance here!

We leave the entire house at your disposal, which can accommodate up to 15 people. When we rent it, we escape to our house next to the stables, so that you can feel at home here, relax and not worry about anything. Without witnesses, you can wear pajamas all day and drink wine for breakfast - that's just what we're saying. There are 5 sleeping rooms in the house: 1st floor: Room no. 1: approx. 22 m, one double bed 140 cm wide, one 90 cm bed that can be expanded to 180 cm, one extra bed 90 cm. The room can accommodate a maximum of 5 people (but it is quite tight). No bathroom. Room no. 2: approx. 10 m, one bed 90 cm wide, which can be folded out to 180 cm, room for max. 2 people. No bathroom. Room no. 3: approx. 18 m, two beds 90 cm wide, which can be folded out to 180 cm, room for max. 3 people. No bathroom. Room no. 4 (apartment): approx. 35 m2, one double bed 160 cm wide, one extra bed 90 cm, room for max. 3 people. With bathroom. Room no. 5 (apartment): approx. 35 m2, one double bed, width 160 cm, fold-out sofa, width 120 cm. room for max 3 people. With bathroom. On the first floor there is also a large bathroom with a shower and a sauna with an amazing view of the fields and forest. Ground floor: Additionally, there is a bathroom for guests. On the ground floor we have a small apartment with a double bed, bathroom and kitchenette, but we rent it only when guests request it, because we have our server room there and sometimes the noise at night can disturb sleep. But if the team comes with a nanny, a cooking lady, or a grandmother who wants to be downstairs, we lend this apartment to you. It is not included in the description of the bedroom. In addition, in the house you will find a huge "chill room" on the first floor and a fireplace room downstairs, a fully equipped kitchen with a dining room, and a winter garden. You can take your dogs with you (the size does not matter), but under certain conditions: they must be gentle - we have dogs, cats, horses, peacocks, and wild animals come to the meadows and they must sleep in their own beds, not in the bedding. We understand that maybe a Yorkie doesn't cause much trouble, but the rules are clear: your own bed. We are also not convinced by the arguments that the dog will be kept on a leash, a rope or an electric collar - we do not agree with such treatment of animals and we do not want to have a hand or foot in it. A vacation is a vacation - also for the dog.

What will I eat?

Go to photo editor Photo edit

Translated by Google Translate.
What do you feel like doing? Pizza for breakfast? Here you go! Dessert instead of dinner? It is possible too. Dinner by the fire - nothing could be easier. It is true that we do not provide you with meals, but we have our own beautiful orchard, garden, our own eggs and a pond where you can catch fish (and then smoke, fry or bake in the fire). If there are fishermen among you, we have indisputable rules for fishing: you eat what you catch yourself, but it cannot be more than 2 adult fish a day (we do not allow catching small fish). Anyway, a good angler will understand it. In the area, you can buy the legendary cheeses at Ranch Frontiera, eat well and regionally at the local restaurant "We Młynie" or Karczma Berta in Święta Lipka. It is worth doing shopping at the Saturday ecological market in Jeziorany.

Will I not be bored?

Translated by Google Translate.
You should even be bored here. Count the clouds, ants in the grass, drift away with your thoughts in a hammock or take a nap under an oak tree. We enjoy writing and reading books, swimming, playing cards, sunbathing, fishing, walking, basking in the sauna, petting cats, horses, dogs and admiring peacocks. All this can be done from a horizontal position. However, if you lack exercise, here is a list of our favorite activities: - swimming in the home pond (clean and regularly tested water), we also have a beach for children and a pier - SUP races (we have three at your disposal), - bicycle trips around the area (we have five and you can borrow them even every day), - fishing (but only the big ones - we release the small ones into the water), - playing a volleyball match on the pitch or babing... badbin..., badminton, - yoga in the barn with a beautiful view of the horizon or on the pier - timed pizza eating competition, - festivals of commonly known and liked music around a bonfire. There really is a lot to do, but you can also do nothing :-) If we succeed, we will take you for a ride in the great Masurian waters, but there is no mention of it ;-) More ambitious people can choose: - for a cruise on one of the 2,600 Masurian lakes, - for a kayaking trip along the Krutynia River (starting in nearby Sorkwity), - for winter iceboats in Mrągowo and Mikołajki, - over the Fallen Bridge in Kruklanki, - to the Boyen Fortress in Giżycko, - to the Pyramid in Rapa, - to Święta Lipka, - on and under the viaducts in Stańczyki, - to Himmler's headquarters in Pozezdrze, - to Hitler's headquarters in Gierłoż and the bunkers in Mamerki, - to Polish Carcassonne, the medieval town of Reszel. Festival fans will be happy to know that every year the Mazury Air Show and the famous Shanty Festival are organized in Giżycko, attracting sailors from many countries. In Mrągowo there is the already hyper-famous Country Music Festival, in Węgorzewo there is an International Folklore Fair, and in Kruklanki there is a harvest festival where you can eat delicious food. Check the dates as they may be flexible. In August, our beloved Green Festival is a must in Olsztyn.

What’s there for children?

Go to photo editor Photo edit

Translated by Google Translate.
We can honestly say that children have a paradise here. They run barefoot on the grass, hit their buttocks with their heels, catch butterflies and get a golden tan, soak in the water and race on SUPs. When it rains, they play ping-pong, board games, cards, or when they are tired from the previous day, they fall asleep while reading a book. Little ones can help feed our animals, collect eggs or watch the horses being groomed. The older children organize their own time and very often come only when they are hungry. Our kids practice yoga with us on the pier - maybe yours will try it too? It is worth going on a kayaking or sailing trip with children - it is a truly wonderful experience. In addition, we have the Winnetou Land Indian Village, a deer farm in Kosewo Górne, a Gothic castle in Kętrzyn and, for small (and big) history lovers, the Military Equipment Museum in Mrągowo.

Additional pricing information
In this 2023/2024 season, we additionally add the so-called counter fee. These are not large amounts, but they help you control the number of lights on and the amount of water used. On the day of your arrival, we take stock of the meters of the house you are renting and on the day of your departure, we estimate the amount to be paid. All our light bulbs are energy-saving and there is plenty of sunlight outside. The sauna is electric, so the fee for it will also be visible in energy. We do not have a charging station for electric cars and we kindly ask you to respect this. On special request, we can decorate your house for Christmas, Easter, birthday, party, etc. This service is additionally paid and amounts to PLN 599. If the dog is adopted, it stays with us without any additional fees. In spring and autumn, the minimum number of days for rental is 3 days. In summer, the number of days for rental is at least 5 days.

Icon Other rules
1. We only accept dogs that sleep in their den, not in their beds. Dogs must also be friendly to other animals that live with us. Preferably, the subject of animals that want to come to us is set individually. We reserve the right to refuse to come with a pet. 2. There are fish in our ponds and we allow guests to fish, but please do not treat our ponds as a fish shop and do not try to stock up for the winter. Also, treat fish with respect due to animals. Put small fish into the pond, and do not gut the fish in front of your children. This is one of the iron rules that apply to us. 3. We have a garden for you, feel free to use it :-) 4. In our house, animals are residents and guests alike. Peacocks proudly walk everywhere, but we do not allow children to chase them in the hope of tearing a feather, we do not groom cats with dogs for fun, and we do not feed horses without the consent of the owners. 5. We love children, we have them ourselves, but we also know that leaving them alone by the water or with horses may end tragically. Please look after the children and spend time together by the water and with animals, then the holidays will be peaceful for you. We as hosts are always nearby, even in the matter of first aid we are trained, but it is not difficult to misfortune by the water. 6. We are ruthless when it comes to segregating rubbish ;-). Let's segregate consciously and use what we can, and nature will thank us for it. Tap water is safe to drink, and bringing a few dozen plastic bottles of mineral water is really unnecessary ;-) Our chickens will eat what is left of the dinner. 7. We do not spray the farm with anything for mosquitoes and flies, because swallows, peacocks and fish effectively take care of it so that even ticks are not present. However, it may happen that you will be woken up at 5am not only by the crowing of a rooster, but also by the buzzing of a fly over your ear. Well, such charms of the countryside :-) 8. We love guests, your stories, passions and if you want to invite us to a bonfire, you can always find us in the stable or in the garden, or in our little house called a "chicken coop", because we do not impose our presence by nature :-) 9. We have a home sewage treatment plant, if any of the guests will be on antibiotic treatment, please let us know. Let's also save water, a shower 3 times a day is really not necessary in the countryside. The laundry service is additionally payable. 10. There is no coverage at home. The phone works poorly, and sending an e-mail is almost a miracle. Take our word for it and don't try to persuade us for technical solutions. The lack of coverage really has its advantages :-) but don't worry, we know a place with us where you can work on a project online or pick up e-mails :-)
