Manowce is a historic property uniquely located in northwestern Poland, surrounded by vast woods, far from residential areas and set right on the shore of a large bay next to the Baltic Sea. Despite its remote location, Manowce is only 2.5 hours from Berlin and its airports.
The Manowce Palace was built at the beginning of the 20th century in the neoclassical style. The investor and first owner was Georg Wegner, chief medical officer and director of a hospital in Szczecin. During the Second World War, the property was used by the National Socialist People’s Welfare organization. From the end of the 1940s to the beginning of the 1990s the palace served as a summer camp for children. It has been refurbished lately and now is offered for various events and stays. Below you can read more about our offer for corporate meetings and events, as well as for weddings and other private celebrations.
Manowce is one of the very few five-star locations in this part of Europe where you can hire the property for exclusive holiday use, for yourself only or with your friends. Exclusive means that there will be no other guests during your stay (however, part of the villa is a private home). We will be pleased to accommodate you for a week or two, and to cater for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, unless you prefer self-catering.
We do not just offer a luxury villa for hire; we also provide your group with a personal English and German speaking assistant who is available onsite every day during the day. The services of this private butler and concierge are covered by the venue hire rate that all guests pay. Our personal concierge/butler service sets us apart from any other holiday villa rental in this part of Europe.
At Manowce, you can sunbathe on the private shore of the lagoon, swim in the bay and hunt for mushrooms in the woods, and you’ll have complimentary use of our kayaks, fishing boat with rods, and bicycles. You can also enjoy our bio sauna free of charge. Other activities, such as horse riding and shooting, can be arranged for you.
From opulent suites to comfortable bedrooms, our accommodation boasts original features and is designed with complete luxury in mind. Manowce offers three stunning, luxurious apartments and thirteen double bedrooms, accommodating up to thirty-three guests in total, or forty-two including sofa beds and extra beds in some rooms. All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and large televisions, and there is Wi-Fi access throughout. Due to the historic status of our property, the bedrooms are not air-conditioned, but there’s a continuous refreshing breeze from the lagoon.
Room numbers: 16 - Rates: rate vary for corporate events, vacations and weddings
Our holiday and corporate guests can enjoy our newly installed bio sauna free of charge. Halfway between a Turkish bath and a Finnish sauna, the bio sauna is the ideal treatment for those who cannot stand high temperatures and high humidity. There are two beds here for relaxing and a shower for freshening up. Especially for ladies, we can arrange for hairdressers, massage and beauty treatment specialists to come to Manowce. On request, we can also bring a private fitness and yoga instructor or tai chi master.
Manowce can host civil or humanist wedding ceremonies. We work on an exclusive-use basis, so the palace and its grounds are yours for the day. We can accommodate wedding parties of up to 50 people inside our beautiful house, or larger parties of up to 100 people in a marquee in the gardens. For indoor parties, we can offer a separate room for dancing.
We have thirteen double bedrooms and three apartments for you and your guests, and the experience is quite different from a normal hotel. Wait until you see our sumptuous bridal suite, an enormous apartment designed to make every bride feel oh-so-pretty and confident as she and her entourage prepare for the day. For the remaining guests we can organize hotel accommodation in Szczecin as well as comfortable transportation for the 45-minute journey.
This is your big day and so we only work with chefs and caterers that provide quality food and a quality service. Meetings can be arranged with them during the planning stage, and tasting sessions are also available at our kitchen or theirs. Our wedding suppliers, such as florists and decoration specialists, have a wealth of experience in their chosen field and will offer you a first-class service to ensure that your wedding is truly spectacular and the memorable day you have always imagined.
Wedding capacity: 100 outdoors, 60 indoors
Manowce, just 45 minutes from Szczecin (Stettin) and 2.5 hours from Berlin and its airports, is a private and distraction-free setting for business brainstorms and confidential talks. At Manowce, you don’t just hire a meeting room, you book the palace.
Whether you’re hosting an intimate meeting, a workshop or a small conference, Manowce has the ideal space for your needs. For workshops and seminars, we offer a conference room with the capacity to seat up to 30 people at U-shaped tables, or the Great Hall where up to 80 people can sit auditorium style. Board meetings and talks with business partners can take place in cosier rooms furnished with sofas or chairs. In summer, product launches, exhibitions and cocktails can take place outdoors in our wonderful gardens and in marquees..
If you want to continue on into the evening, our thirteen double bedrooms and three apartments offer a comfortable alternative to an arduous journey home after a busy day. If you want to entertain your team during the day, then along with swimming in the bay and mushrooming in the woods, at our place they can enjoy kayaking, fishing or cycling, and we can organise activities such as horse riding, sailing, and shooting.
Meeting capacity: from 25 to 100 depending on seating or standing arrangement
With its elegant architecture, stunning interiors and scenic location, Manowce is a wonderful venue for shooting films and photos. The building was designed in the neoclassical style, with wonderful portico and wall decorations. The interiors are filled with beautiful antiques and paintings and 200-year-old tiled stoves, but also first-class contemporary furniture by Minotti, B&B Italia and SieMatic. The exterior is equally photogenic, with gardens, a fountain and parkland. The views of the vast Szczecin Lagoon waters cannot be matched.
