|Welcome to Potoczek!|
Potoczek is situated in southern Poland. It is a perfect place for all those who seek a quiet, natural and healthy holiday.
Here you will find a unique opportunity for the individual or family who care about their 'ecological footprint' but wish to enjoy the full wonder of Poland's expansive, unspoiled nature, glorious mediaeval architecture, warm hearted citizens and superb farmhouse foods!
Located in the heart of the hilly region of Lesser Poland (Malopolska), 40km from Krakow and 100km from Zakopane, Potoczek gives you a chance to spend a quiet holiday in the Beskid Mountains far from the crowds and urban bussle, or to visit Krakow - one of Poland's most beautiful cities. You might fancy a trip to Zakopane, Poland's "winter capital" at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. From your Potoczek base you are well placed for all these pleasures and on any day you can combine resting in the countryside with sightseeing and hiking.
Just at the end of your south facing garden you will find ICPPC Ecocentre, one of the first fully integrated small scale ecological demonstration sites in Poland. Here you can learn about clay-straw building, organic gardening, renewable energy for the home, grey water systems and much more - and you can even book-in for a course and learn about the challenge of self sufficiency from a local Polish farmer.
We believe that Potoczek will give you that 'special something' so important for a really good holiday!
