About the property

The house was built in 1857 and completely renovated in 2013. It is situated in a small village, 45 minutes from Prague, in the heart of the Bohemian Paradise, Unesco geo-parc of sandstone towers, excellent for hiking, cycling, climbing, bathing and sightseeing (castles, traditional villages, breweries, museums).

This eco-friendly house of 150 m² is traditional and contemporary at the same time.

You will find a large living room-kitchen, 3 spacious bedrooms (1x4 pers., 2x2 pers.), 2 bathrooms (one with shower and the other one with bath), 3 toilets, garden with bbq and internet.

The fully equipped kitchen is at your disposal: range, oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, electric kettle, toaster, coffee maker. A washing machine, a dryer and an ironing board and iron.

The house has its 300 m² garden with terrace (accessible directly from the living room), table and chairs, deck-chairs, barbecue and for the children a small bathing pool, cabin for "pirates" and a sandpit. Depending on the season, you can pick up some fruits in the garden.

Parking for 2 cars in front of the house.

In the hamlet of Mokry, you will still find the authentic czech countryside. Our neighbours have a small family farm (sheep, rabbits, goats...) and in the morning you might hear the rooster but in the evening you will enjoy the quiet of the village far from the cities.

A small playground on the village square. Bathing lake 1 km (ice chips, beer, fishing, Kusturica atmosphere :-) Highway Prague 2 km.

About Stania Hajkova

We bought this house to renovate it because we fell in love with the outstanding nature of the Bohemian Paradise. We live there a part of the year and rent it during summer.

gemütliches und familienfreundliches Haus im Grüne

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wunderschöne, aber viel zu kurze Woche in dem Ferienhaus von Stania und Ronan verbracht.

Wir haben schon viele Urlaube in Ferienhäusern verbracht, aber keines war so schön, so gemütlich und vorallem kinderfreundlich - wie dieses!

Vier Erwachsene und zwei Kinder hatten genügend Platz um zu entspannen, den Garten oder den Kamin zu genießen oder die Gegend zu erkunden.

Die Vermieter sind wirklich sehr freundlich und immer erreichbar und um das Wohl Ihrer Feriengäste bemüht. Das Haus mit dem vielen Holz innen hat ganz besonderen Charm. es gibt auf jeder Etage eine Toilette. Der Küche fehlt nichts, was man im Urlaub vermissen könnte....und wie bereits geschrieben ist auch für die Kinder etwas dabei. Besonder konnte man unseren kleinen Sohnemann mit dem Baumhäuschen, dem Buddelkasten und den kleinen Spielautos begeistern. Wenn es uns noch mal nach Tschechien verschlägt, dann bestimmt hier her!

Sehr zu empfehlen ist ein Ausflug nach Prag - selbst im Herbst sind hier viele Touris on tour, aber es ist eine zauberhafte Stadt.

Wenn man lecker Essen gehen möchte und auch kinderfreundlich sein soll, dann empfehlen wir das Plaudit Restaurant in Turnov. Einfach suuuper lecker!!!

Mit Kinderwagen und Fahrad ist die Burg Vallenstein gut zu erreichen und man kann dort oben schöne Spaziergänge machen.

Rund um ein wunderschöner Urlaub!

Danke liebe Stania und lieber Ronan!

An excellent house for exploring the Cesky Raj

  • 5 of 5

Our family (my Wife and I and our two daughters aged 5 and 9) stayed for two weeks in Mokry. The property itself it excellently equipped. We loved the welcome gift of local beer and apple juice and our youngest daughter particularly enjoyed the use of the Tree House in the garden.

Throughout the property is equipped to the highest standard with comfortable beds, modern bathrooms and great WIFI reception.

The property is situation in a small village just outside the larger town of Turnov. We enjoyed doing many things during our stay including:

Turnov open air swimming pool

Boskov dolomite caves

Exploring rock cities - Hruba Skala

Visiting the many castles in the area - Waldstejn and Kost in particular was good if you have kids

Day trip to Prague

We'd recommend Plaudit restaurant in Turnov for very nice pizza and pasta meals.

One tip to maximise your stay. If you don't speak any German or Czech then learn some! Levels of spoken English outside of Prague are very low. I learn a few basic Czech phrases and these were invaluable.

Thank you Stania and Roman for an excellent place to stay for two weeks!

Gorgeous house in lovely tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully converted house with all mod cons and tasteful decoration. Very spacious for our family of 4 and fabulous having 3 loos! Loved the walk in shower and double sinks in the main bathroom and the lovely big entrance hall. The garden is beautifully kept and was lovely to eat out on the terrace. One of our favourite holiday homes after many years .

The house is located on the edge of a small village with fields all round, so felt very rural and tranquil.

It is a great area with lots to do - luckily we had our bikes with us and used them nearly every day with lots of lovely well marked bike routes (and mainly flat!). Well worth hiring a bike if you dont have your own. There is also a great new outdoor swimming pool with water slides just a short bike ride away, and obviously all the beautiful woods and amazing rock formations to visit. We would also recommend walking up the hill behind the village of Vsen for great views and a lovely wooded walk. We also had lovely meals at the Plaudit in Turnov and the Abeluv Mlyn.

The proprieters are lovely and left lots of useful information, and very quickly returned our deposit. All in all, a great holiday and would highly recommend this holiday home to anyone visiting this lovely part of the world.

Prima plek!

  • 5 of 5

2 leuke weken gehad in dit prachtige huis. Ruim, volledig, netjes, luxe.

Omgeving met vele mogelijkheden tot wandelen, fietsen, zwemmen. Ook leuk voor kinderen en tieners. Vele rotsformaties en kastelen gezien. Map met informatie in het huis is fijn! Praag goed bereikbaar.

Heerlijke vakantie gehad.

Enige minpunt is dat uitslapen alleen kan met oordoppen in vanwege blaffende honden en dorpsgenoten die al vroeg buiten zitten.

Marvellous holiday house in a beautiful region

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks with our 3 kids (13, 12 and 10 years old) and used this location as good starting point for many beautiful walks through the nature (special rocks, mountains, rivers), to go swimming (either in rivers or in a nice indoor waterpark), visit Prague, castles, .. There's plenty to discover within a driving range of 30 min to 1 hour, but also nearby. With 3 cameras we took about 7500 pictures :-P

The spacious house (at a quiet (but not lonely) location) was very well equipped. Not even mentioned in the description are 2 small airco's which help a lot in getting rid of the heat from the 2 upper rooms.

There was no bakery nearby, but thanks the good oven we could do the final baking of fresh bread ourselves ;-)

We didn't meet the owners in person, but they were very helpful and kept a very warm contact. Also the entire house breathes a nice personal touch, with books and pictures from their own vacations.

When you feel like discovering this area of the Check Republic, this house is an excellent suggestion which offers really a lot of value for money (certainly when comparing to France or Croatia) !

The Bohemian Paradise, ranked European Geopark by UNESCO in 2005, is an area little known by the French tourists. Near Prague (45 minutes) and rich in natural, cultural and architectural beauties of the place is no ordinary holiday. Its dotted with sandstone towers and rock city hills are perfect for walks, cycling or climbing. There are castles, traditional villages, pubs, museums but also lakes and pools. Trails closest hike is 500 m, with respect to the bike, you can start from home. Sychrov castle formerly owned by Brittany Rohan family, is located 10 km. And 20 km from the house you will find a ZOO and an aquatic center. We let up on you a Book in French ideas to enjoy the best of your holiday in the Bohemian Paradise.
