Sopot

Sopot was and remains Poland’s principal “up- market” seaside resort. The Grand Hotel was the best hotel in Poland in communist days.

Along the tree-lined roads there are many large old villas– some have seen better days, but many have now been restored.

We had a great 10 days at the House of Storks at the end of July/early August. The house is very well presented and was very spacious with plenty of room for the 5 of us. The house is located in a very tranquil setting but within easy reach of the major attractions of the Tri-City area.

We were very fortunate with the weather which actually meant we didn’t visit many of the places we intended (Malbork, Hel, Kartuzy & Łeba) as we spent a lot of time at Orłowo beach (between Gydnia & Sopot) and swimming in the lake at nearby Bieszkowice.

Gdansk is well worth a visit if history and architecture is your thing and our children certainly enjoyed the Gdansk Zoo at Oliwa.

Overall I would definitely recommend a holiday at the House of Storks and Poland is a great place especially if you like vodka and herring!

I have just returned home to rainy, cloudy Manchester after a lovely week at The House of Storks. What a beautiful house! Spacious, exquisitely clean, well-cared for, well-equipped and in a beautiful location - Bojano, very close to Gdansk. It was a delight to laze in the huge garden or eat breakfast at the table outside watching and listening to the birds; we even heard a cuckoo. Deer crossed the path near the house and storks nested nearby. Some mornings we would see the baby stork poking its head out of its nest. Bojano is good for interesting walks and cycle rides - the area is very flat. The meals we ate, mainly in Gydinia, were excellent. Gdansk is an intersting city - the shipyards and the quaint streets. It was also incredibly easy to park! My favourite place was Sopot - glamour from yesteryear! One occasion we heard piano playing from one of the villas, some displaying a faded glamour, and it felt as though we had stepped back into the early 19th century. Slowinsky National Park, although quite a drive, is an unusual phenomenon, but what a chill wind. I regret not visitng the Hel peninsular. But the roads and the drivers were a little scary! Mirka and Krys who look after the house were very friendly, helpful and amenable. They are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful location. Poland and The House of Storks surpassed my expectations and I would love to return. It was one of the best holidays I have had. I will be recommending Poland and the House of Storks to all my friends and family.
