Boasting over 279 hectares, this property is probably the most extravagant in Poland. It is nestled in the heart of a national park overlooking Warta River, only 25 kilometers from Poznan. Since the airport in Poznan is connected to the most strategic European airports, this Sowiniec estate also has its own airstrip and helipad. The best equipped polo club in this part of Europe belongs to this unique property. In winter, an indoor arena comes in handy for stick and ball practice.
During the season, tournaments are held outdoors either on an arena or on two full-size polo fields. From early June until late September, a number of polo tournaments are held here, the largest of which is traditionally Sowiniec Polo Cup. The club regularly holds polo tournaments involving teams from all Europe. Sowiniec Polo Club has won the title of the Polish Club Champion four times in a row and a series of German Polo Tour.
Currently, the club is equipped with: stables for 60 horses, an indoor riding arena measuring 40x20m, an outside polo arena with lighting 100x50m, a walking machine for 8 horses, a training track and two full-size polo fields 275x155m, summer and winter paddocks and a country-style guest house with five suites with an area of 465 square meters.
The estate comprises of a wonderful oak-panelled indoor tennis court with an area of 940 square meters and an office building with an area of 540 square meters connected to the carriage house (282 square meters) and garages (311 square meters).
