We are Monia and Michal – yoga instructor and book author. During the pandemic, we traveled for a year in our vintage van across the south of Europe to return to Poland and build the house we dreamed of while wandering. This is how the year-round house – Little Earth – was created. It is created perfectly for you, because we also created it as a perfect place for us.

When creating the cottage, design was the most important thing for us. We tried to choose furniture and accessories so that they were unconventional things, so that just looking at them gave pleasure, and using them was a good feeling. We wanted the cottage to be beautiful but also well planned. It is small and modest but you will definitely breathe space and feel harmony here.

A year of living in an RV taught us minimalism and made us realize that many of the things that surround us on a daily basis we don’t really need. That’s why we kept the number of items to a minimum. Only the essentials are left. The coolest things alone.

The house breathes creativity. Cute and engaging albums will take you on a journey through any of the unconventional themes. While engaging games and unusual accessories, will awaken your child’s curiosity. We also value tranquility, and not just the one around us. Peace of mind and a look inside ourselves are equally important to us. That’s why we have created for you a selection of items that will help you meditate, do yoga or simply reflect on who and what you are.

In our humble kitchen you will find a stove and a refrigerator. In addition, a pour-over coffee maker, good coffee for it and a few essential dishes and items. There is a small pizza oven outside (warn us if you want to use it). You’ll stock up at a neighboring store or pop out to a restaurant or pizza place.

Our site is an unfenced two hectares of meadows, away from the neighbors. The surroundings are sure to amaze you. There are endless forests of the Kampinos National Park, a picturesque river and long meadows and fields. It’s easy to spot deer here, and sometimes fox and moose. If you want more, jump on a horse at a nearby stable or rent kayaks. But you can also just stay on our land, relax in a sauna or hammock and watch the birds with binoculars.

The cottage is quite small and we designed it for 2 people. However, if you really care, you can bring your friends here, they will be able to sleep on a comfortable 140 cm sofa bed. Just remember that it may be a bit tighter then!:)

The cottage is year-round. On hot summer days you will be cooled by air conditioning, and in the summer it will be warmed by an ecological heat pump. Also, do not worry about the temperature!

We have WiFi in the cottage. We wanted to create a place without internet, but many people ask about internet for work so we yielded:) Admittedly, the internet works on average due to the distance from the transmitter, but emails can be written.

At the weekend the minimum length of stay is 2 nights (Friday+Saturday)
