Piwnica Zbójnicka (Highland Robbers’ Cellar)

In 2015, the Piwnica Zbójnicka (‘Highland Robbers’ Cellar’), in the villa Pod Bogarodzicą at Plac Dietla, opened its doors again. The place that once used to enjoy much interest from both tourists and local inhabitants welcomes guests anew, like in the old days. The cellar-like interior design and the highland-robber-ish climate are supplemented by quick and yummy snacks.

At the Zbójnicka, two halls are available – during the day they are a sanctuary of peace, ideal for a quick lunch; in the evening they are full of vibrance when guests watch football on TV, dance or chat over their favourite beer listening to highland music.

Stud Farm

The stud farm is situated in the picturesque village of Jaworki. In the course of several years, the buildings of the farm were renovated, likewise the adjacent area, and thus the riding offer was extended. A new all-season shed with a stone fireplace and stylised bar was erected; there is enough space for up to 70 people at the feasting tables.
Within the area of the facility, a ‘mini-area’ was sectioned off where you can master you riding skills. Due to these measures, the stud farm is now one of the more interesting spots on the map of tourist attractions of the town and its countryside.
Until 2015, these the areas of the stud farm were leased by the Group; then, they were purchased by the Mańkowski family to become a part of the Thermaleo & Uzdrowisko Szczawnica Group.

Revitalisation of the
Górny and Dolny Parks

The concept of the Górny Park (‘Upper Park’) was based on recreating the original appearance of the park with walking alleys and combining it with the concept of the ‘open perspective’. The project was inspired by solutions applied in the French royal parks and the stairs leading up to the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur in Paris, as well as motifs characteristic for the stylised mountain fountains.

The Górny Park is a private property and belongs to the Thermaleo & Uzdrowisko Szczawnica Group, which makes the part available, free of charge, to the local inhabitants and guests in Szczawnica.
The revitalisation was accomplished in cooperation with the Municipality of Szczawnica.

The concept of the Dolny Park (‘Lower Park’) is a combination of nature with art and culture. The design of the ‘botanical park’ provided for creating a family-friendly place with a charming pond, as well as restauration of the park’s gazebos so that they should become peculiar stages for artists and musicians.

The revitalisation was accomplished in cooperation with the Municipality of Szczawnica.

Cuvée Szczawnica Wine

In 2012, at the restaurants and other facilities of the Group, there appeared for the first time red wine called Cuvée Spéciale Szczawnica, created by the Mańkowski family with the guests and tourists visiting Szczawnica in mind. The vineyard that the wine comes from is situated on shale-strewn rocky, calcareous terrain, in the heart of the region of Languedoc-Roussillon, in the south of France. Thanks to this, you can feel a touch of French climate enclosed in the Cuvée Szczawnica Wine. Good weather conditions that prevailed in 2012 created a range of balanced, deep and very fresh wines – red, pink and white – which from then on are included in the Group’s offer every year.

Modrzewie Park Hotel*****

The Willa pod Modrzewiami where the hotel is currently located was built in 1938 by Adam Stadnicki for his daughter Maria. The name of the villa (‘Under the Larches’) was taken from the age-old larches surrounding it. In 2005, ‘The Larches’ were repurchased by Andrzej Mańkowski from descendants of the Świeżawski family and in 2008-2009 Thermaleo had the building renovated, giving it a new stately and at the same time elegant appearance.
