Flat in small city next to lake - north of Poland

We live in a small city in lakeland. It's close to nature as this region is not an industrail area and it offers many attractions for active people and those who want just to relax. The live goes pretty slow here, so it's not a place for those, who looks for a tumult and big city'ies attractions. If You want discover more history and some monuments You can visit cities like Gdańsk, Szczecin or Poznań which are approx 3 h by car. 1,5 h by car and You are by Baltic Sea which offers You beautiful sandy beaches and generally nice weather. Of course prices here - are lower than in the countries of Western Europe - which appreciate our foreign guests :)
We have comfortable 80 m2 apartment (3rd floor).There are 3 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, a balcony and small bathroom with a shower. There are a king size bed and a cot (where sleeps our baby girl Hanna) in the parents' bedroom, the convenient sofa in the living room. In our older children's rooms there are single beds.
Inside you will find everything what you need for stay; fully equiped kitchen, wasching machine, dishwasher, tv, dvd, stereo, wireless internet connection and many toys for younger children. Our bikes: 2 for adults and 2 for kids are also to your disposal. We also have bike child seat up to 22 kg. We can also exchange our car - 5 seats Skoda Octavia.
We don't have private garage, but there's no problem to park a car in front of our building.

We have just finished our 12th great exchange and are ready to arrange next swap. We are looking for a one-three week exchange for summer 2017. We would like to find a calm place (in a small city or village), where we could spend nice time with our children. We like hiking, cycling and swimming. Proximity of hills, mountains or the sea would be great.

We are OPEN for all offers as we love to discover new cultures and places!

Our Neighbourhood

Szczecinek is small town in north of Poland. Our flat is situated by the lake, swiming pool and the complex of tennis courts. You can enjoy here all kind of water activities like swimming, cannoing, yachting, fishing or try to use newly built water ski lift (see for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB4jYtVfu88&feature=fvst).
 
Our town – Szczecinek is situated 80 km from the Baltic sea – you can see its wide sand beaches within 1,5 h by car.
It is also worth to see Borne Sulinowo (24 km from Szczecinek) – charming city located on a lake and bordered by thick forest – high security base for the Northern Group of Red Army occupying this place untill 1992r. On 1993, Borne Sulinowo became a registered town and officially opened to the Polish public to begin settling here. Due to much neglect by the military rule, most of the city’s buildings were left in ruins.
Those, who are interested in history of world war 2, should see International meeting on military vehicles, which take place in Borne Sulinowo each August. See an example of that:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPULezyo0JM
