Chata Miłośliwka is a place that was created out of love for nature, space and people. It was not only an idea to build a farm and a plan to escape the city. It was primarily a project to create an unusual place, located on a hill, surrounded by an orchard and away from the asphalt. It is a unique space for all those who want to stay in a place for a moment and find delight in the world around us.
Our estate consists of a cottage, a granary and a modern barn. We have a total of 7 rooms, two kitchens, two dining rooms, two lounges, two terraces, a 60m2 workshop room (we have mats, blankets, cubes and yoga belts), a gazebo, a fireplace and a playground with a mud kitchen for children.
If you are looking for hotel amenities, we may not be the best place for you to rest. However, if you are looking for a family-friendly place, nature and a relaxed atmosphere, come as soon as possible. We would like you to feel at home with us.
* You will not get to our house with an ordinary car. Guests staying with us for 5 or more days are transported up free of charge. Shorter stays are PLN 50 per course (up to 5 people). The parking lot is down at our neighbour's house. It is about 20 minutes uphill on foot from the car park to the cottage. In the summer season, you can drive a 4-wheel drive car with increased suspension, in winter you may need a differential lock and chains.
* We do not wear shoes in buildings. Please bring thick socks or slippers, unless you prefer barefoot - all floors are wooden. Crocs/slippers/clogs are also useful;) for walking between buildings;
* We accept dogs only in the Granary rooms - due to the open kitchen and dining room in the cottage.
Seemingly unrelated: renovation of old furniture, tradition, healthy cuisine, homemade preserves, board games, baking bread or the wisdom of our grandmothers - all these things have a common denominator. This denominator is an internal need to slow down, a need that we and many of our friends feel (probably strangers too). And it is not about living in the forest, cutting off from all the goods of our civilization, but rather finding time for what makes life worth living.
The philosophy of slowness that we profess in Miłośliwka is an attempt to find balance and a better life in this fast world.
Leaving the fastest lane of everyday life.
Living at your own pace.
What we wish with all our hearts for ourselves and you.
Exit to the roadside.
The house is old and stiff, the roof is in a dilapidated condition, the orchard is completely neglected and the cowshed is a shame to talk about. In the past, its inhabitants provided the farmers with food, today it is a storehouse for unnecessary things to anyone.
Driveway? Lacking. Apparently, the farmer's son wanted to build the road, but his father felt sorry for the fields. He will get there by horse.
Cellar? … Maybe it won't collapse.
The barn is full of old hay, damaged furniture, and it is difficult to go further because in the middle there is a huge old thresher.
My father died, my daughter took my mother to town, and my future Luby bought the run-down farm. Luby is an avid canoeist, and the farm is located in the vicinity of the canoe track on the Dunajec, so "he found it on the Internet and bought it somehow". Now Luby thinks, and maybe he could get rid of it ...
But! Wait a minute!
Referring to one of Joanna Chmielewska's books, I have such a personality that even if I see horse dung on the doormat, I will be glad that the horse was here. And probably this personality, plus the fact that as a kid I spent a lot of time in the countryside and played with my peers by cooking potato beetle soup on a fire distorted my personality.
I noticed that the house could be renovated, that the old tile under a layer of dirt has a beautiful red colour, that the windows could be repaired and washed, and curtains can be hung. I noticed that the orchard is alive and blooming and the cowshed is a beautiful large building.
Dear, well ... here things are worse, even my optimism will not jump over it, but you also have to get to mountain shelters with quality, and even that makes you happy.
The cellar is full of juices, preserves and marinades from the time when the hostess was still healthy. The tradition should be continued, especially since there are now a lot of chemicals in the stores.
In the barn, I can already see a workshop, a large living room, or a gym. There is a meadow, the hay will change and I dream of hay at night.
Furniture - maybe I can renovate at least some of them? Yes, I will learn and do it myself - such furniture with a soul is the most beautiful ...
Fortunately, my bridegroom not only grew up with his grandmother in the countryside at times, but he also has to love me very much - the decision is made by himself.
The house stays and we stay there.
