geese on the pond in the park.
some guests buy a goose. We also supply free-range, organic eggs from the chickens
a panel from the unique, large, Renaissance ceiling in the ballroom. One of Poland's most important
we have enormous out-buildngs too, some of which can be used for big parties and concerts
most of our rooms look something  like this
the kitchen in one of the flats. Big enough for a party
we mostly heat with wood from our own trees
the ballroom ready for a big party. Up to 100 people can sit there
great a country house party. Board games, reading books, long walks (and we do have the internet)
this flat is just off the central courtyard. Two bedrooms and a kitchen
a view on the Czech side. The border is 3 km. There's skiing, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding
the Fireman's Ball. The local fire brigade had an event and concert here
weddings up to 100 people in the house. Up to 250 in one of the big barns
about 200 people having fun in one of the Big Barns
plenty of space for camping, and indoor camping in barns is also possible. Festival?
a boat on the pond. You can swim, but it's cold. Local lakes and quarries are wonderful too
dancing in bare feet to the band
great cycling country. This group had a big lunch on a tour round the area
have you ever seen a more beautiful place to play tennis?
superb horses and instructors on the Czech side. And very inexpensive

Otmuchow, Opole Province, Southern Poland
first mentioned in 1300, the palace has been rebuilt once every 100 years since. Owners have included barons, and a Prince-Bishop of Wroclaw. It's now owned by British-Polish couple, Jim and Anna Parton, who have rescued the house from near-dereliction.
There's a ballroom with unique Renaissance painted ceiling, a baroque chapel, a private park. We have free-range chickens, geese, turkeys, sheep. We have self-catering flats, romantic rooms for couples, space for large families. It's a great place for parties, including weddings. Our space is very flexible, and includes enormous barns, ask us what we can do for you. Anything from a family reunion, or a company team building event for 10, up to our annual rugby festival for 200 people. We can do good, simple wholesome food ourselves and can arrange excellent caterers too

About the neighbourhood
the Palace is set in open countryside, just 5 km from the Czech border. There, there are swimming quarries, mountain bike tracks, and there is skiing.
It's a small village, and visitors always say how tranquil it is.
We have big barns, and the place is ideal for large events, including outdoor ones
