A beautiful restored house in the woods with lots of wild animals. We had our dog with us, she loved it there. Our kids enjoyed the local pool in Tachov and the lake in Branka 😄

We wanted somewhere comfortable and quiet, a base to explore the German\/Czech border area. The accommodation provided by the Frey family was perfect. Very comfortable, well presented and equipped with all we needed. Outside was a spacious garden area with child's swing and seesaw, hens and turkeys. Great for a toddler wanting to explore and play. The Frey family live upstairs, On hand if we needed anything. Great neighbours! We'd have no hesitation recommending or returning here.
