Sleep[edit][add listing]

I remember that it is quite common for people to rent out rooms in their houses to visitors. In fact, a friend I stayed with had a sign on their house saying "no rooms for rent" as people were obviously ringing on their door!

There is a nice camping place a bit outside of Wisla on road nr. 942 towards Szczyrk / Bielsko-Biala named "Jonidlo". Walking time 20 minutes to the centre. They also rent cabins. Friendly people, there is a sheltered barbecue place for everyone. They have Wifi on the place. Right next to the camping is a bathing spot in the Wisla (= Vistula river) where we spent hours with our kids. Across the street is a good and cheap restaurant. Right next to the camping is a bar with half-litres of raspberry beer - cheers!
