Hallo Petra, vielen Dank für die schöne, leider zu kurze Zeit im Riverfern apartment. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, vor allem das renovierte Haus sowie das wirklich große und abwechslungsreiche Anwesen. Du hast uns das Gefühl gegeben, nicht in irgendein Haus zu kommen, sondern nach Hause zu kommen. Unsere Kinder vermissen vor allem Ben, Maddy, die Katze und die Entenkücken!
Das Apartment ist toll ( vor allem die Decke in der Küche), das obere Stockwerk sehr geräumig und aus der Badewanne wollten wir gar nicht mehr heraus! Vielen Dank noch einmal und alle guten Wünsche für dich und deine Familie! Wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen!
Danke für die wunderschöne und entspannende Zeit auf dem weitläufigen Anwesen. Petra war eine perfekte Gastgeberin. Die alte, liebevoll renovierte Mühle ist für all jene, die Entspannung suchen und das nur wenige Kilometer entfernte Altstadtjuwel Krumau entdecken wollen, ein idealer Ort. Die vielen Tiere (allen voran der freundliche Hund 'Ben'), die Wälder und Wiesen bis hin zum nahegelegen Stausee machen Riverfern zum Kinderparadies, das wir sicher wieder besuchen wollen.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par le mari de Petra, Courtney, qui nous a donné toutes les informations dont on avait besoin sur le logement et les environs. Les indications envoyées par Petra pour trouver cette adresse étaient impeccables, la communication avant notre arrivée a été très facile (tant en Anglais qu’en Français). L’appartement est conforme à l’annonce, les lits sont très confortables et il y a tout ce qu’il faut pour faire la cuisine. Nous avons aussi beaucoup aimé les animaux de compagnie très accueillants eux-aussi ! Le cadre est super reposant, a la campagne mais aussi très proche de Cesky Krumlov qui est une ville a ne pas rater ! Nous regrettons de ne pas avoir eu plus de temps pour explorer les chemins et forets aux alentours. Nous aimerions revenir et nous conseillons ce logement à tout le monde !
We had a wonderful time in Petra's appartment. We highly enjoyed visiting the surroundings and hiking through the landscape caked in snow days over. Coming back to the warmth of the house and some wellness in the sauna was even better then.
Petra is nice, before our arrival she wrote "how to find her house" in detail.
Apartment is big and comfortable, 5-10 minutes drive to CK town.
BTW, really love your dogs and cat, so regret that we have no chance to interact with Maddy, hope next time.

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.
