The Hel Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places at the Polish seaside – Chałupy, Jastarnia, Jurata or Hel are names of places that we usually associate not only from the map, but also from shorter trips or longer journeys.
This narrow (only 150 m wide at its narrowest point) and 35 km long strip of land is a holiday destination for many of us. Perhaps because it is considered the most beautiful part of the Polish coast. Its northern side is made up of sandy, wide Baltic beaches, while its southern side is lapped by the waters of the Bay of Puck, whose western shallower part is particularly popular with kite surfers. Interestingly, the Hel Peninsula is a relatively new formation – until a few hundred years ago it was a string of sandy islets with no land connection.
Jurata – the most fashionable resort of the Hel Peninsula
Of all the towns on the Hel Peninsula, Jurata is the most fashionable one. It used to be part of Jastarnia, and its name is said to derive from the Lithuanian goddess Jurata, who fell in love with a poor fisherman, which of course – as in sea legends – had its fateful consequences: the wrath of the ruler of the sea killed Jurata’s beloved, and her undersea palace was turned into a pile of amber rubble.
Jurata was already a resort for the elite in the 1920s. In 1923, the area was leased by a company that organised the most fashionable holiday destination for the country’s political, intellectual, financial and artistic elites there. The prohibitive house prices meant that few of the best-off citizens could afford to buy property in the area.
After the Second World War, the holiday traditions were continued in Jurata by various works that located their resorts there.
Villa Glamour – a unique investment in Jurata
Villa Glamour is an exclusive development by the Polish seaside, located right on the promenade, surrounded by forests and yet a few steps from the beach. Each element of the investment has been carefully thought out, so that the whole is a unique space offering the residents as many benefits as possible.
The investment’s advantage is also its functionality: extensive infrastructure (shops and service points) and excellent communication. Nearby, there is the Jurata railway station, a bike trail and a road leading from Hel to Władysławowo.
There are only eight flats in the 3-storey building. The modern architecture, light colours with a visible glamour style and the highest quality materials are an unusual proposition for those who value comfort, quality and modern design. Residents can choose between flats of varying size with associated terraces.
