Petra's place (it is really a PLACE, because it includes everything - house, woods, river, meadows) is simply a fairy tale. We spent some of the best two days with our little kid there (a perfect place for a hyperactive wildling), and it felt like we could stay forever. The weather was sunny cool, so the Norwegian wood-burning stove was a blessing, it warmed the room immediately and we slept like babies. The apartment we took was big and cosy, it had all the necessary stuff to feel like home and you dont miss anything. We even bought home eggs from Petra and cooked them into amazing breakfast. The view is amazing, the surroundings heavenly. It is possible to take walks in the wood, gather mushrooms, go along the river to the next village, make your own barbecue in the yard, etc, etc. Cesky Krumlov is just minutes away by car and parking there is easy (paid) - we are not sure about public transport, maybe there is. We were sorry we didn't extend our visit and we think of coming back just to stay in Petra's place in the Novesedly village and rest. Petra, who lives in the next house to where we slept, is very, very helpful, sweet and responded promptly to all our questions and demands. She even gave us a basket of home plums for breakfast. Thank you so much for the great experience. We could't recommend it more.
There are no words for how much we enjoyed this place! Absolutely magical! If we could have done our trip to the Czech Republic again, we would have spent A LOT more time than we did at this beautiful place. And fresh duck eggs for sale to make for breakfast? Yes, please! (Not to mention how entertaining the Ducks were to (email hidden)d the dogs..and the cat.) Petra was an amazing host as well. We can't recommend this place
We had a lovely stay, our apartment was nice and rustic and perfectly suitable for a stay with a small child. The surroundings are beautiful, we've enjoyed visits to Cesky Krumlov and other places nearby, we rented bikes for a day and there are also lots of walks in the area that are suitable for strollers. Our daughter really loved the swing in the garden, as well as the chickens and ducks. There is also a small playground with a sand pit and a slide, perfect for kids. The communication went smoothly, Petra replied very fast to our questions and everything was very clear. We definitely recommend staying here!
Die Buchung war unkompliziert und wir erhielten sehr schnell Antwort von Petra. Die Kommunikation verlief problemlos und nett. Das Appartment von Petra hat unsere Erwartungen noch übertroffen! Es ist wunderschön und gemütlich eingerichtet, inmitten der Natur und dennoch sehr nah an Krumau gelegen. Es hat an nichts gefehlt und ist super sauber. Wir werden bestimmt im Winter einmal wiederkommen! Sehr zu empfehlen!
The place is ideally located, close to the city but far from the crowd. The apartment is a very nice mixture of ancient and modern, we especially loved the old wooden beams and woodworm eaten window sills. Petra was a perfect host, kind and friendly, always available when advice was needed but invisible when we wanted to be on our own. If we ever return to Chesky Krumlov we'll surely choose Petra's place again.
We hebben met ons gezin een mooie tijd doorgebracht in het appartement. Het is zeer goed gelegen vlakbij Cesky Krumlov, een ideale uitvalsbasis om zuid Bohemen te verkennen. Een mooie streek waar veel te doen en te zien valt.
Het appartement ligt zeer rustig aan de rand van het bos. De tuin is zeer groot en avontuurlijk, heel leuk voor de kinderen om op ontdekking te gaan, te spelen in het riviertje dat erdoor heen loopt, kippen en eenden eten te geven,... Vele leuke plekjes om te zitten en de absolute vrijheid om alles te gebruiken: ligstoelen, pingpongtafel, hangmat,... De sterrenhemel in de donkere nacht is onvergetelijk.
Petra is een hele vriendelijke gastvrouw, ze laat je meteen thuis voelen. Ook haar familie zijn sympathieke, rustige mensen. Het appartement is gezellig en zeer netjes, je hebt er absolute privacy. De meubelen zijn eigen werk wat een heel persoonlijke toets aan de ruimte geeft.
Alles verliep tiptop, een echte aanrader!
We just loved this appartment! It has a lot of charm and it was very clean. Petra is very friendly. We would definitely recommend this place!

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.
