Type of rooms: Palac KamieniecApartment Nº1:
Located in the heart of the palace, it is ideal for both couples and single travellers who value comfort and convenience. Wide spruce planks on the floor, a large bed hidden under a pile of fluffy duvets and pillows and an airy canopy evoke the memory of the bedroom of the castle?s previous masters. The living area features a comfortable sofa and chairs from which you can admire the garden and distant mountain ranges. The bathroom décor emphasises the importance of the room. The stylish bath supported by lion's paws is bathed in the flickering light of a historic lantern framed in an airy canopy.
A room with a cosy interior bathed in shades of mint. Its walls are adorned with portraits of famous women, including the Duchess de Polignac. The room's large windows overlook directly onto the palace landscaped garden and rose beds. In the morning, guests will awake to the sound of the chirping of birds and the endless theatre of the winged inhabitants of the palace garden. Despite being south facing, the crown of a large oak tree protects the room against strong sunlight.
Room Nº3, once the count's study, offers excellent views of the Northern Garden. It is here that the most important decisions were taken regarding the management of the Kamieniec property. In the morning, guests' attention will be drawn to the brick façade of the palace barn reddening in the rising sun.
The décor of the room is sure to please those who appreciate the combination of modernity and tradition. Already at the threshold guests will be surprised by the glass bathroom, through which streaks of light fall into the room. This fabulous room has a tower, and the bay is a cosy spot offering charming views of the palace herb garden and the distant Bardo mountains. It is also the only room with its own balcony, from which guests can admire the grounds of the former farm and the Northern Garden.
This room is spacious and therefore ideal for families with children. Historic spruce planks on the floor add to its cosiness. Located in the nineteenth-century wing of the palace, the view from the room opens out onto the former Swiss House and the extensive orchard behind it, once famous throughout the Kłodzko Valley. In the background you will see distant mountain ranges. Inside, the subdued colours contrast with blue and dark blue touches. The creaking floor and cosy fireplace portal make it a pleasure to be here and relax.
Room number six is small and very cosy. The east-facing window provides not only a morning dose of sunlight, but also stunning views of the Śnieżnik mountain range, while at dusk guests can see the sparkling lights of Kłodzko. Old musical notes adorn the walls.
This is the perfect room for a family or group of friends. Its décor reveals the palace's historical engineering secrets. The refurbished supporting structure of the palace's mansard roof pleases the eye with the warm colour and texture of aged wood. The spacious interior opens out onto a view of the former palace gardens with the picturesque ruin of the Gardener's House and the historic orchard in the background.
Room Nº8, similar to apartment No. 1, is located on the main axis of the Kamieniec residence. From its three windows guests can admire the palace garden, the nearby hills and the distant mountain ranges, including the Śnieżnik range. The southerly aspect means that the room is bathed in natural sunlight. The high interior reaches the top of the palace roof.
Room Nº9 is a mirror image of room 7. Attention is immediately drawn to the exposed wooden mansard roof support structure. Through the window, guests will have range of charming robins as neighbours. This is a spacious room with bedroom annexes and a seating area. The spacious bathroom completes the comfort.
