Everything as described and realy clean, a nice and lovely apartment in a peaceful environment. Petra welcomed us and showed us the flat and gave us some tips of what to do in the area. If you stay there don't forget to pet Ben the dog, he will guide you through the forest :D
My girlfriend and I can only recommend to stay there!
Very nice atmosphere in a beautifull nature surrounding.
The house is confortable abd we felt like in home.
Wie hatten ein unglaublich wundervolles Weekend bei Petra im Waterwheel. Obwohl das Wetter nicht mitspielte fühlten wir uns sehr wohl an diesem wunderschönen Platz.
Petra hat uns herzlich empfangen und die Unterkunft war sehr gepflegt und gemütlich.
Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit, wir werden gerne wieder kommen....
This place is amazing! I was looking for a peaceful place where we could spend few days of vacation with my family. It's not easy to meet the expectations of three different generations, but in this case it worked just perfectly. All of us really loved this place and it's very special atmosphere.
The accommodation and surroundings look exactly as beautiful as in the pictures. The apartment was more than comfortable for 5 persons in terms of space, beds, cleanliness, equipment...everything. We also used the outside part for barbecue few times. It's covered, so we could sit there even if the weather wasn't best. Petra and her family recommended us a place nearby to buy fresh fishes, that was delicious!
Without any exaggeration I can say that Petra is an extraordinary host. Her communication was prompt, nice and very helpful from the beginning to the end. She reacted immediately to any questions, gave us helpful hints to find the place easily (what was quite important regarding the location). When we arrived, she welcomed us warmly and all the time she did her best to make us feel as good as possible. Bottle of good red wine was waiting for us as well as the basket always full of wood for heating or barbecue.
Thank you so much Petra! Hope to see you again :)
There were other guests accommodated in other apartments, but actually we could hardly see or hear them. We only knew because of their cars parked next to our.
Petra gave us a warm friendly welcome. The apartment was spacious, beautifully clean and well-appointed, but the best aspect was the price. We've never stayed in such a lovely place for such a small price....fantastic value. Highly recommended!
We had a very nice contact with Petra and her family. They helped us and showed us around. The location is very beautifull: countrylike with chickens and ducks etc. We ate the eggs. In spite of the train it was very silent en an other guest tought us all about mushrooms that could be found in the wood around the house. We had a fabulous time and would come back without a doubt.

I returned to the Czech Republic with my husband after 8 years of living in Australia and 3 years in France. The countryside around Český Krumlov is so beautiful and the area around us so peaceful that I am so happy to be back at home. We love independent travelling and getting to know new people, which inspired us to renovate our family home and rent it out to people that share the same passion.
I speak Czech, English, French and some basic German. My favorite destination is France where I studied for a year and than decided to work for couple of years before returning home.
