Villa Biała Owca
The white sheep villa is the place that was created in the harmony with both the Podhalanian lanscape and modern place which provide great rest and full comfort.
The Strążyska Valley is the most accessible and at the same time one of the most beautiful Tatra mountains valleys. It cuts with a deep wedge between the steep slopes of Turnia Kiernia and Sarnia Skała. A walk through the Strążyska Valley provides many impressions and at the same time the route is very gentle, on the way it is worth paying attention to the vertical rocks protruding from the forest - these are Strążyskie „Chimneys”. In a clearing at the end of the valley you will find a comfortable place to rest and a small tea- room buffet in a historic highlander hut. Please look up - the northern wall of Giewont is proud above us. From here, you can go to Sarnia Skała, Giewont and towards Silkawica (only 15 minutes), one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Tatra Mountains.
The entrance to the Strążyska Valley is located 600m from Biała Owca. You can get there in less than 10 minutes.
The Białego Valley is full of natural and historical mysteries and curiosities. Few people know that in the 1950s it was closed and the Soviet troops searched for uranium ore there. There are tunnels abandoned by them to this day. Fortunately, the decks turned out to be too poor and today we can enjoy a walk through the valley cut by Biały Potok, one of the most unruly streams in the Tatra Mountains. The Path over the Regle Mountains runs through the upper floor of the valley - thanks to this, you can go to Sarnia Skała or towards Kalatówki and Kuźnice. Especially the loop option covering the Białego Valley, Sarnia Skała and Strążyska Valley is an excellent proposition for a full-day, unhurried trip from Biała Owca.
The entrance to the Białego Valley is 2 km away from our guesthouse, it is reached by a picturesque part of Droga pod Reglami.
In the 19th century, Kuźnice was the real center of Zakopane, it was there that a sawmill, a manor house and, above all, steel mills, called hamras, were located. In turn, the most efficient mines where metal ores were obtained were located in the Kościeliska Valley. There were so-called an iron road connected the outlet of this valley with the hamers' ironworks. Its long, eight-kilometer fragment is known today as Droga pod reglami. It is a favorite walking trail of Zakopane residents and tourists. From the south side, hugging the Tatra National Park, it offers a wealth of trips to the mountain valleys, while to the north there are wide panoramas of Zakopane, the Gubałówka Range and further Podhale.
The closest part of Droga pod Reglami is located at the end of the Strążyska Valley, about 600 m from Biała Owca.
