A perfect accommodation to spend a few quiet days. A beautiful house that does not lack anything. The owner is very attentive. Highly recommended.

No wifi No pool We can see that the house does not have all the comforts in the kitchen. The place lacks a nearby market or a Chinese one, there is no shop in the town and it is quite small, if you want a retreat it is For good

Thank you very much for the great reception, you have made us feel very comfortable at all times. I have loved being able to enjoy the house with friends and savor the barbecues that we have done. We have found everything we have needed during the stay. But we had a big problem: WE HAD TO RETURN !!!! Time has passed very quickly and we will really repeat, so I recommend it 100%. Sergio thank you very much for everything. Your time, personality, kindness and attention. You really have made our stay perfect. WITH A LOT OF WANT TO REPEAT !!!

The terrace where the barbecue is is very small and is very closed. You swallow all the smoke.

Our family meeting place for years. We always come back. My father is waiting for his birthday to celebrate here (there are several). I think you should be your longest-lived customer. Thanks Sergio. He is very comfortable here. Keep taking care of us so well ...

Kraków Cloth Hall

The Cloth Hall in Kraków dates to the Renaissance and is one of the city's most recognizable icons. It is the central feature of the main market square in the Kraków Old Town (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978).

The hall was once a major centre of international trade. Traveling merchants met there to discuss business and to barter. During its golden age in the 15th century, the hall was the source of a variety of exotic imports from the east – spices, silk, leather and wax – while Kraków itself exported textiles, lead, and salt from the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Kraków was Poland's capital city and was among the largest cities in Europe already from before the time of the Renaissance. However, its decline started with the move of the capital to Warsaw in the very end of the 16th century. The city's decline was hastened by wars and politics leading to the Partitions of Poland at the end of the 18th century. By the time of the architectural restoration proposed for the cloth hall in 1870 under Austrian rule, much of the historic city center was decrepit. A change in political and economic fortunes for the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria ushered in a revival due to newly established Legislative Assembly or Sejm of the Land. The successful renovation of the Cloth Hall, based on design by Tomasz Pryliński and supervised by Mayor Mikołaj Zyblikiewicz, Sejm Marshal, was one of the most notable achievements of this period.

The hall has hosted many distinguished guests over the centuries and is still used to entertain monarchs and dignitaries, such as Charles, Prince of Wales and Emperor Akihito of Japan, who was welcomed here in 2002. In the past, balls were held here, most notably after Prince Józef Poniatowski had briefly liberated the city from the Austrians in 1809. Aside from its history and cultural value, the hall still is still used as a center of commerce.

On the upper floor of the hall is the Sukiennice Museum division of the National Museum, Kraków. It holds the largest permanent exhibit of the 19th-century Polish painting and sculpture, in four grand exhibition halls arranged by historical period and the theme extending into an entire artistic epoch. The museum was upgraded in 2010 with new technical equipment, storerooms, service spaces as well as improved thematic layout for the display.

The Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art was a major cultural venue from the moment it opened on October 7, 1879. It features late Baroque, Rococo, and Classicist 18th-century portraits and battle scenes by Polish and foreign pre-Romantics.
