Comfortable family house in the historic university city of Kraków

Welcome to Bursztynowa 22, Krakow. Our family two floor house is located in a quiet cul-de- sac next to the park with the river, a public swimming pool & the XVIth century mansion with the Polish cuisine restaurant. French supermarket Auchan and a huge  fresh fruit & vegetable market are just a 5 minute walk away. And everything is just 5 bus stops from the historic Old Town (taxi costs c.5 Euro )
Our house is comfortable with most of the appliances : bath, shower, dishwasher or washing machine. The main living room, kitchen and the bathroom are on the first floor. There are 3 bedrooms & the shower/toilet on the second floor.
We are open to non simultaneous hospitality exchanges since the ground floor has an independent living room, 2 bedrooms, kitchen and a shower bathroom.
There is also a lovely garden around with abundance of flowers where you can grill & dine and rest listening to birds singing in bushes and trees.

About Our Family

Family & pets
I have been  Intervac member Pl 0001 for years and Intervac organiser since 1998. we have been exchanging successfully since 1993 approximately 30 times. I had the privilege for a few years to be an administrator of Intervac International Facebook fanpage www.facebook.com/IntervacHomeExchange. I manage the family business a private York School of English www.york.edu.pl
We have 2 lovely cats Perelka and Milutek and 1 German shepherd dog Ikar safe in the school garden - our housekeeper looks after him when we are away.

I love gardening, travelling, photography, film, reading and reading . My two adult daughters Anna and Joanna are away but may like to join me. Joanna (31) works as the dentist in the UK (has got the British citizenship); Anna (29) is a finance manager in Germany. I exchange at the moment by myself or with the daughters- my husband had leukemia fours years ago. ..

We enjoy travelling & have been exchanging with Intervac since our daughters were 2 and 3.
We have exchanged a few times in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland (partly due to our business), French Provence and Normandy; Danish Jutland and Zeland; Austrian Tirol, Ireland, the Netherlands,German Bavaria, Italy, Switzerland and Spain.
