The complex has a clear and lavish composition and is located picturesquely within a natural basin. It is an example of Classicist palace architecture, rare in the residential architecture of this region.

History

The first mention about the site comes from 1427. It was an aristocratic 2-lan real estate, part of the property of the Jackowski family. After 1618, it was taken over by the Krokowski family from Osiek. In 1823, the estate was purchased by Rants, who drained the nearby marshlands. In 1862, to the north from Sasino, a lavish palace called Belle Aliance was built. It was erected probably by Rants’ son-in-law, Wilhelm von Somnitz (initials on a rock in a plinth of the front façade). The park complex also originates from that period. Von Somnitz continued draining works on the area of the estate. After his death, his family divided the land into small tenancies and sold all of them, except for the part with the palace. In 1902-1907, captain von Zitzewitz was the owner of the estate, and since 1909 the estate was owned by captain von Holtz. In 1924, the palace was taken over by the Jung family (until 1945). The building underwent reconstruction and was supplied with electricity. A plumbing system was installed as well. After 1945, the Soviet Army, and in 1948-1953, the Polish Army stationed in the palace. Later the complex served as a Children Camp Centre of the Factory of Tin Packages. In the 1970s, the palace was abandoned and devastated. In 1983-1985, it was taken over by Budrol and rebuilt - it served as a holiday house. Currently, it houses a hotel and is in private hands.

The palace and park complex is located 1.5 km from Sasino, 3 km from the sea and the Stilo lighthouse in Osetnik. Currently, the park occupies an area of 8 ha.The park and palace complex is surrounded by waterlogged, partly drained meadows. To the north-west from the palace there is a trace of a non-existent pond. The park was developed in the English style. The part near the palace is regular, symmetrical, and axial. The main axis is formed by the entrance alley leading to the palace. The palace was built on a rectangular floor plan with false avant-corps on the front façade and at the corners of both façades. It features a compact body with two and a half storeys and high basement. The building is covered with a gable roof clad with sheet metal. It is made of brick and plastered. It has a separated piano nobile, two-storey annexes with terraces on the western and eastern side. The façades are partitioned, 11-axial with a 3-axial avant-corps on the main axis and 1-axial avant-corps on the corners. The axes are additionally partitioned with pilasters. The ground floor is rusticated. There are triangular jerkin heads over rectangular windows of different sizes in wide window surrounds.
