  • Description


    We are a family of 3...and one on the way:) We also have 3 cats. After living in England for 17 years, we have decided to pack up our home there, sell everything and buy a house in a beautiful, hilly part of Poland, small village called Węglówka, where we plan to have a life close to nature, start a small farm and maybe host guests in the future.
    We have also tried living in Tokyo, Japan, for 6 months. And Paweł lived in Finland for 2 years and South Africa for 1.5 years. We have travelled around Europe, and love meeting new people, learning about new cultures and would love to share experiences with people that would want to come to Poland.

    We are also very creative, we love to recycle and reuse, create furniture out of old pieces of wood, restore old furniture. Paweł creates lovely things on a leathe and Anna paints pictures and other things on canvas and wood. We have artistic souls.

    Our new house needs finishing, the land is hilly and rocky, but the views from the house are breathtaking.
    There is lots of walking trails in the mountains around us and we are only 1 hour away from Kraków. You benefit from clean air, amazing views and lots of walking and hiking possibilities. Also skiing in winter.
    We are surrounded by forests.

    Our 3 year old daughter would love to practice her language skills, and so would we.
