Where to begin?
Petra is an amazing hostess, helped us with everything we asked for, gave great tips and was available to all our questions.
We felt like our home with her!
A beautiful house, very clean and very efficient.
River flows out of the house, there is a place for barbecues, with greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers, facilities for children table tennis, fruit trees.
We strongly recommend the place for accommodation of Petra and her family and are confident we will return there in the future.
We love Petra's lovely and beautiful apartment. Petra is a very wonderful host who came to welcome us and also see us off. We have a pleasant stay in her farm. After short visit to crowded Český Krumlov, kids just want to stay in her peaceful farm to play with dogs, chickens and ducks. We enjoyed our private sauna and also bought some fresh eggs which was delicious. Highly recommend Petra's place and wish to come back again.
It was such a great stay! Lovely appartment and Petra is a really good host. A lot of essentials were already in place, so we only had to buy what we wanted to consume. There was a nice guest present aswell as probably the best muesli we had in a while.
Petra has sown us what a wonderful host is like. Her house is as perfect as one can imagine and as what she said, she has made her guest feel so much at home.
Only one remark here, the GPS may not be able to exactly locate her place and so just remember some landmarks like the restaurant and the park.
Petra made us feel very welcome - the apartment is in a beautiful setting and is far enough away from the crowds without being too far. Our family of five had a great stay. Thanks!
We had a very nice stay at Petra's place in Kájov. Especially our children did not want to leave after two days because they had liked it so much and made us promise them that we have to come back next time for much longer which I am sure we will do...
We spent five days in the Waterwheel apartment and enjoyed it very much! I highly recommend this wonderful old house with the spacious garden to relax, lots of water for the kids to play and to refresh. The apartment was very comfortable, fully equipped, and nicely decorated. Petra is such a friendly, wonderful host. Thank you for everything!!! We would love to come back again.

About the Host, Petra
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.
