Below you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions.
What is the capacity of a chalet ?
Chalets are designed for a comfortable stay of six people. You could add one more person, but we do not recommend such a solution , because we know from experience that it is then simply crowded. Queue for the bathroom getting far too long 😉 .
Where is the nearest restaurant ?
On the other side of our street is a small hotel where you can buy meals. 400m below is a restaurant ” Wedle Bućków ” ( traditional Polish cuisine ) . In Sobieszów (4.5 km) you will find more restaurants . Pizza Kolosseum from Sobieszów will deliver pizzas to our chalets at no additional charge. After that Szklarska Poręba or Jelenia Góra (about 15 km distance) have many places to eat.
Where is the nearest grocery store ?
The nearest shop is located about 700m down the road. Nearest market is 4.5 km away, in Sobieszów near the church, and then, after a further 3km Lidl , Netto & Biedronka supermarkets . In Jelenia Gora you will find much bigger shopping malls.
How Chalets are heated?
They are heated by fireplace with distribution of hot air. We have the same system at our home, and we managed comfortably even at times when it was -25 Celsius outside (our record so far). If you never used such fireplace, we can either teach you how to run it 🙂 or light the fire for you whenever neccessary. It does add to cosy atmosphere 🙂
Is the wood for the fireplace included in the price?
It is . But not an infinite amount . Please do not take offense , but we noticed that often our guests, probably not being sure if the fireplace will be good enough, overdo the flames a bit, and then open all the windows. That is not very effective. Amount of wood provided will last you for about 5 days . After adding wood, just close the chimney, close the air inlet, and the fireplace will slowly keep you warm till the morning 🙂 .
Will my car in the parking lot be safe ?
It will . As long as we live here ( since 1998 ) there never was a problem. But in any case, our gate closes automatically, and you have the remote for it , so you can sleep peacefully.
Is there a kids playground ?
Yes , although it is not very big . In our experience , however, the kids usually prefer to go to the forest . There are a lot more interesting things than just around the house 🙂
Do you provide Internet access?
Yes, wireless (WiFi) . Currently we have decent speed (7-8MB),Â every chalet has signal extender, so you should have no problems connecting. You will find password on our „Short Chalet Manual” on the table in salon.
