Bliżyn commune is located between the Świętokrzyski National Park and the Suchedniów-Oblęgorek Landscape Park. This farm of 30 ha is the only working agricultural farm in the village so the food we serve is mostly based on our own produce. The hosts are members of the Culinary Heritage Network in Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship and they dance and sing in a folk ensemble. The farm has been voted the best organic farm in Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship twice – in 2009 and 2013. The Króls have also received two prizes for the Best Farmer of the Year. Old breeds of animals are housed on the farm such as the Świniarka sheep (the most primitive Polish sheep) and the Kielecka goose.
They offer two rooms for guests: the so-called small room with two single beds and a big room with two single beds and one double bed. In the big room there is a fireplace and entrance to the terrace. There is one bathroom for both rooms in the corridor. Generally meals are served in the kitchen and are shared with the hosts. Workshops: traditional farm chores, bread baking in a traditional bread oven, home canning and bottling and weaving; horse trekking along the Świętokrzyski Horse Trail with a trek leader, horse riding lessons, bow shooting shows, sleigh rides in winter.
