The farm house is clean, has good views, and is incredibly spacious with beautiful natural light pouring into every room. The kitchen is large and well-equipped and connects right onto the dining room, which makes serving very easy. The owners who live across the yard on the same property were very friendly and accommodating but never intrusive. Walks out the back door take you up into higher fields and woods. Closer to the house are an apple orchard, chickens, ducks and horses, and an above-ground swimming pool. The hamlet itself (Vrtezir) barely includes a dozen households, but there is a big town about 15 minutes away called Bystrice with grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc. We highly recommend a side trip to the Pernstejnem Castle, which is a magnificent structure in the area that’s been rehabilitated. If you have younger children, then a side trip to Eden Centrum (or Eden Center) on the outskirts of Bystrice is worth it. It’s an old chateau/manor farm from the 18-19th centuries with various exhibits and a few acres of restored agricultural village homes and shops and farm animals out back where families can roam about and have a picnic. We enjoyed our week’s stay very much and would highly recommend the Keppler Farm to anyone looking for a place in the countryside of the Czech Republic.
