Before the German-Polish borders changed in 1945, a vivacious Leonie Ossowski (then Jolanthe von Brandenstein) grew up inside these very palace walls. As luck would have it, she’s a member of the original landowner’s family and an accomplished author.
We’re grateful for her engaging depictions of Osowa Sien - brought back to life through her Silesian Trilogy and definitive literary works.
As an homage to her and the happenings that once characterized this countryside village, our collection of rooms have been inspired by her riveting books.
All suites come with kitchenette or pantry complete with coffee and tea larder. The rooms are not air conditioned, but have plenty of windows to open up and they remain ambient due to the thick walls. If it's particularly hot, we've got fans and a complimentary glass of wine - chilled to perfection.
Most suites have a 32-40" Smart TV. If this is important to you, please let us know so we can ensure you've chosen the right one.
Last but not least, please keep in mind that the suites are all on the 2nd or 3rd floors. Which means you'll get stair-climb workout for free. Of course we're happy to help with the luggage.
