Bronisław Piłsudski, an outstanding ethnologist, Józef Piłsudski the Marshall`s brother lived here before World War I . Tytus Chałubiński, Stanisław Witkiewicz and Henryk Sienkiewicz visited here. And it all began with the great-great grandfather, Professor Edward Kornistowicz, who bought and expanded the charming house in Bystrem in 1896. He loved the Tatra Mountains and in the interest of preserving the expansion of Zakopane in the Tatra valleys, he bought plots of land from highlanders looking to build on them. His son Tadeusz inherited his father's passion and proved himself as a nature protection activist, mountaineer, spearhead and mountain rescuer TOPR.
So much history, being now what we could call something for lovers to relax in unusual places.
The house is one of the oldest buildings in Zakopane. It is surrounded by a large garden that borders directly with the Tatra National Park. It smells of old wood, and the inside welcomes you with a bright, glass interior. You don't have to move from the sofa to feel that you arrived to the mountains. A large garden can be seen from the veranda, and in the distance Giewont and Kasprowy Wierch. The sharp eye (with the help of binoculars) will see the lift on the Gąsienicowa route. Aged trees invite you to walk deeper into the garden, up to the borders of the Tatra National Park Lagoon. What you have here is only beautiful meadows and glistening lights of lifts. An additional attraction of the garden is the historic Chapel, a drawing of Witkiewicz, which can be seen in full glory from ul. Karłowicz.
We invite everyone who is looking for history, the atmosphere of olden times, modern comfort or simply a place where children feel good. We hope that you will feel the special atmosphere that Sienkiewicz found here.
Every day anchored near the forest, but close to a large city. Korrałowiczówka is my connection with what is really important: the roots, nature and history of my family.
a property at exclusive use for 8 people (two bedrooms)
The property (80 m2) is built in traditional Zakopane architecture, made of wood. Inside you will find: two bedrooms and a living room with sofa beds, a bathroom as well as the well-equipped kitchen.
- bedroom 1: 1 double bed
- bedroom 2: 3 single beds
- living room: 2 sofa beds
In addition... to the rich history, Kornistowiczówka can surprise you with a dishwasher, washing machine and even an iron, if someone suddenly out of the blue... wanted to iron something.
Due to the nature of the place, please do not organize events at home.more
What will I eat?
We give you a home for your exclusive use, which means that you cook yourself. There is no problem with getting groceries, the nearest store is 300 meters away from the house. But if you weren't particularly eager to cook dinner, we recommend:
Korrałowiczówka is located next to the Tatra National Park and its location means there is no chance for you to be bored. Only 5 minutes by car / taxi is from here to Kuźnice (the lower cableway station Kasprowy Wierch). A few steps from here you can eat well (Marzanna Inn, Nosalowy Dwór Regionalna Restaurant).... There are also well-equipped grocery stores nearby.
- ski lifts
- aqua park in Zakopane
- mass of kilometers to go
But if you're going to Zakopane, you probably know perfectly well that boredom is the last thing you could expect.
We have prepared the house so that in case of bad weather it becomes an attraction in itself. You will be fine here.more
What's for children?
We have children, so we know what they need. Kids usually play in the large garden, use swings or toys at home. There are so many things happening in Zakopane that they come home full of thrills and adventures. The mission of promoting love for the mountains usually goes well in Korniówowiczówka :) :)more
