    Travelers will benefit by experiencing living in a large Christian family environment (5 kids), and will be able to observe unique teaching methods used with elementary and pre-intermediate students. We live in an old wooden house in a village surrounded by hills 65 km from Krakow and 65 km from Zakopane in the South of Poland. Krakow is Poland's most beautiful city and probably the largest center of culture, and Zakopane is also a very popular tourist destination.
