On New Year's Eve 1996/97 Willa Amicus was opened in Zakopane and it was then that it welcomed its first guests. Since then it has been delighting them with its irreplaceable climate and delicious homemade cuisine.
Amicus - this word means someone special, as we are talking about ''friend'' (from Latin). The name of the facility has been retained by the current owner, Mrs. Ela.
Ms. Ela, together with her daughter Magda, are the heart and soul of Willa Amicus. As soon as they cross the threshold of the building, with them comes extraordinary energy, which they infect every guest and the entire staff team with. The side effect is wide smiles!
Ms. Ela for many years was co-owner of an iconic place - Coctail Bar Zakopiański on Krupówki, which became famous thanks to delicious tubes with whipped cream and, of course, the charisma of the owners.
The local Restaurant in Willa Amicus has become a true legend of Zakopane, especially the tomato soup prepared there. The cuisine we taste here smells of home cooking, and tastes like from under the hands of our mothers and grandmothers.
Willa Amicus is located in a quiet corner of Zakopane, in the immediate vicinity of picturesque hiking trails leading to Giewont, Strążyska Valley and the White Valley.
An additional advantage is the nearby Lipki ski lift, perfect for beginner skiers. Just a 10-minute walk separates Villa Amicus from Krupowki, the most popular avenue of Zakopane.
All this means that guests of this delightful place can feel close contact with nature.
In the hotel part of the hotel you are invited to discover local artistic talents - works of local artists decorate the striking spaces of the villa and there is an opportunity to purchase them. Some of them were specially created for Villa Amicus.
Here are the artists whose works you can find here: Natalia Janik of https://namigo.studio/ and Adam Soroczynski with his hand-painted paintings, as well as Blanka Gluzinska, who creates captivating postcards.
Willa Amicus is more than a guesthouse.
It is a charming and artistic place that delights the senses and the soul. It is here that you will find peace and harmony.
We invite you to discover the magic of this place.
