Fall In Love With Autumn
Five escapes with the season in mind…
Wine, fireplace, books: check, check and checkity check! Just 45-minutes from the capital, the Bookworm Cabin promises something unique – a woodsy, rural retreat custom-built with avid readers in mind.
A pocket-sized off-grid escape, features number an intimate mezzanine level, a wooden outdoor deck, and a five-meter tall window touting unimpeded views of the countryside beyond. And, of course, there’s books – shelves and shelves groaning under the weight of countless tomes that cover all genres.

You could stay in a 19th century water tower, but for the full Carska experience book one of the train wagons instead. Voluptuously decorated with wood paneling, heavy-duty beds and black and white portraits of the Russian aristocracy, the last Tsar’s private station is now a luxurious retreat you’re unlikely to forget.
Full of ornamental antiques and hunting trophies, consider it akin to waking up on the set of Dr. Zhivago. The quaint village of Białowieża is close by, and beyond, dense primeval forests populated with bison.

Set just within a Gothic gateway, Widnokrąg is the stay that scenic Sandomierz has long been missing. Find four aesthetically pleasing rooms all of which give more than a passing nod to cult Polish brands and producers – it feels simultaneously homely but luxurious.
Extra points go to a fab on-site restaurant that’s creative, contemporary and a celebration of local. It’s the kind of warm sanctuary you yearn to return too after an evening spent prowling the foggy, cobbled back streets of this atmospheric town.

There’s something spiritually uplifting about 4rest Camp, and that’s never truer than when watching the morning mist lift at the height of Autumn. For accommodation, you’ll be ensconced in the womblike warmth of an intimate yurt: bury yourself under the duvet whilst the Siberian woodburning fireplace keeps the temperature toasty.
As mysterious calls of nature ring out in the distance, make a shivery dash outside to the tube-shaped sauna or bubbling hot tub. If gazing at stars isn’t your thing, then the nocturnal pleasures of Gdańsk are 30 clicks away.

To enjoy the full beauty of Poland’s amber gold autumns you’re going to need to realign the soul with a farmyard stay. Rustic and relaxing, this upmarket Mazurian farmhouse presents the full-on agro-touristic experience right down to the sound of braying beasts and hooting birds.
After a chilly lakeside stroll, defrost by the fire in the kind of living space you’d love to have at home. Design-wise, the mix of retro and contemporary influences make it an easy visual pleasure that everybody will love.
