We put a dot over the “i” when a house was erected next to the old granary, with a shape reminiscent of the Lemko chyża. Because Ropki is a former land of the Lemkos. It used to be inhabited by 400 people, today the number of inhabitants does not exceed four dozen. Ten years ago we brought a fir granary from 1939 to the valley surrounded by the Hańczowskie Mountains. We moved it from the neighboring village. Today it stands under a linden tree and experiences a second youth here. Then the thought of a guest house popped into our heads. The project with a terrace overlooking greenery and a large window onto nature has become a reality after 3 years. It has interiors separated by an open hallway with space up to the roof, some with apartments for guests and a kitchen with a common room designed for integration. We have implemented projects combining wood with steel in our metalwork workshop in Krakow. In sublime interiors, in contact with art, the senses are subjected to relaxation and stay in a state of blissful peace. Here in the Low Beskids, we focus on everyday joy of existence. Basic package: a subtle delight with wildlife, meetings with salamanders on forgotten trails, seeing sheep herds moving into the mountains or leaving grazing and experiencing the traces of the old Lemko world, we decided to expand. We added: coffee drunk in the company of a postcard view, meditations in the meadow, a book read by the huge window and the warmth of the evening bonfire. All this to restore the lightness of being and admire everyday life. Because it is the essence of the rest you come here for. That's the way it is, and that's the end of the period.

We are from Krakow. Our adventure with the Low Beskids has begun 30 years ago, in different times ... Now we walk between a big city and a tiny village, enjoying both of these places. We like to read, walk, laze, just like any ordinary person. And we want to share these simple joys with you.

In one of the valleys of the Hańczowskie Mountains, in the Lemko village of Ropki, surrounded by meadows and trees, a granary from 1939 was first erected. 10 years ago, we moved it from the former owners' yard and created a comfortable and compact two-level cottage for weekends and holidays. We liked its adaptation and arrangement so much that we also built a large guest house here, in which we plan to settle down during our retirement. A house-granary made of fir tubs, which stands under a linden tree and is experiencing a second youth here, has: - 25 m² and 15 m² of terrace, - kitchenette, fold-out sofa and dining area, - a bathroom with a shower with an original old granary door, - space under the stairs with a seat, fridge and storage space, - open mezzanine with two bedrooms: with 2 single beds above the terrace and a double bed on the other side, connected by a wooden bridge. It is designed for 4 people. We invite all pets to this space. The house, inspired by the Lemko village, which stands next to it, consists of two parts separated by a hallway. Its right side is a kitchen connected to the living area (which we call the common room) and my favorite big window overlooking the meadow that changes with the seasons. A place just perfect for sitting around and immersing yourself in reading. In the common room there are tables with benches and a library with a selection of books and board games. There are 5 guest apartments on the left. Both sides are separated by a hallway with an open space reaching the roof itself, in which I designed stairs made of one piece of 6-mm sheet metal. There is also a shared toilet downstairs. The house is characterized by glazing that lets light into the interior and allows nature to see it. There is a large terrace in front of it - it is a space to relax with deckchairs, pouffes and swings. All apartments are open spaces with kitchenettes and bathrooms with showers. In total, we have room for 16 people: three apartments in the attic (2-person, 4-person and 5-person), and two downstairs (2-person and 3-person). We invite you with your pets to those below. - Blue Dots in the attic is 42 m² (sleeps 4), a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with two single beds, a corner with a work desk and a reading chair. - Green Dots in the attic is our largest apartment with an area of 52 m² (for 4-5 people) with a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with three single beds and a reading corner. - Yellow Dots in the attic is 15 m² and has a double bed. They are dedicated to couples. - Yellow Dots on the ground floor is 25 m², and the sleeping area is a double bed and a pull-out couch. It is a space for 3 adults or a couple with two young children. - The Pink Dots downstairs are 15 m² and have a double bed. They are dedicated to couples. It is possible to rent the whole house exclusively. The interiors are in earthy colors. We juxtaposed the wood with a concrete floor and steel. We designed and created all the elements in our metalwork workshop. The author of fabric designs and some paintings is our daughter Ksenia, and the other paintings and graphics are the works of our friends and acquaintances. The arrangement is not finished, because building space is a process. We want the space of the house to be pleasing to the eyes and be filled with art that soothes the senses. You will not experience the range with us, but we have an optical fiber that allows you to work in really beautiful natural circumstances. You reach us by a gravel road with little traffic. We have neighbors on one side, the Old Farm is there.

We have this solution here: in a large house, in the common space, there is a kitchen separated from the dining room by a metal display. I created it myself and filled it with plates, bowls, cups, glasses and glasses, selected especially for this place. There are two large tables with benches in the dining room. In addition, each apartment, as well as in the house-granary, has a kitchenette. When I am there, I will be happy to prepare breakfast for you. When I'm away, you can go for a few minutes walk across the meadow to Swystowy Orchard. There my friend Grażyna, who infected me with love for her hometown Ropek, prepares vegetarian breakfasts and dinners based on local products and flavors of Lemko cuisine. You can eat apples from our apple trees, go to the forest for mushrooms and enjoy nuts.

Here, in Ropki, in the western part of the Low Beskids, surrounded by the Hańczowskie Mountains, in the valley of the Ropka stream, you can catch your breath. Calm, deep and in no rush. In our thought-out and lovingly created house, you can relax surrounded by nature that looks into the house through large windows, meets you on the terrace and invites you for walks in the meadow, forests and mountain trails. Ropki is an old Lemko village with a history of displacement and resettlement. Less than 40 people live here permanently, in the interwar period there were about 300 inhabitants. In this somewhat forgotten, somewhat undiscovered corner of Poland, people from all over Poland found their asylum. Delighted with the beauty of the area and making sure that asphalt does not appear here. Therefore, you will reach us via a gravel road. And on the spot you will be able to grow dolce far niente. The Italian art of sweet idleness can be put into practice here in many ways. You can: - by sitting, lying or swinging on the terrace, let the beauty of the mountain landscape and meadows framed by forest caress your eyes, - walk in the meadow or just sit on it, - go down to the trickle to soak your feet in it. - read books from cover to cover in front of a huge window, especially in the evenings, - prepare a bonfire and enjoy the proximity of your favorite people and meet new people if the opportunity arises, - cook in a shared kitchen and celebrate shared meals, - play board games at the tables in the common room. And if you want to explore the area, you must know that it has a lot to offer. Our guests usually take their first steps to Bieliczna. It is a depopulated village in the valley of the Biała River, where there is a historic Orthodox church. Bieliczna is located at the foot of the northern slopes of Lackowa, so you can go straight to the mountains. You can look for traces of the old Ropki - visit the Lemko cemetery, see roadside crosses and chapels, the church (the church was transferred in 1978 to the Museum of Folk Architecture in Sanok, where after 20 years it was reassembled and the iconostasis and polychrome were reconstructed), the ruins of the farm buildings belonging to the Breeding Technical School , a small lake on the Ropka stream, where you can sometimes meet a gray heron. You can set off on the tourist routes that Ropki are entwined with. There are blue, red and yellow trails that lead to the border with Slovakia. We are surrounded by: Ostry Wierch in the south, Siwejka and Biała Skała in the west, Dzielec in the north and Las Bziany in the east. The highest peak in the area is the aforementioned Lackowa (997 m above sea level). Although the hills of the Low Beskids are not spectacular, the way to the peaks is what counts in these mountains. Empty paths, meadows entwined with forests, the sight of morning mists, forgotten villages, hidden relics of the past history of these lands. We can also boast a Nordic walking path and the Multicultural Cycling Trail. For further trips, you can go to the health resorts of Krynica, Wysowa and Bardejov, one of the oldest towns in Slovakia. There is a Hucul horse stud in Regietów. You can reach Klimkowskie Lake, where there is a beach and a water equipment rental, in 20 minutes by car. In the winter season, we recommend Smerkowiec or Magura Małastowska as well as numerous cross-country skiing routes.

What’s there for children?

We do not have special attractions for children in K.Ropki, apart from the specialties that nature offers here. Children can get carried away by the endless meadow, enjoy the space, visit the stream below, swing on the swings, hide, run and rest. In the evenings, they can eat treats from the fire. In winter, you can go sledding and make snowman families or walls behind which snowballs are thrown. In autumn, you can go to the forests to pick mushrooms, listen to the ruts and watch the trail. You can also come across the road in spring. And in summer, admire the greenery and who knows, maybe also try your hand at the Bieszczady trails?
