About Ian Salter

We were married February this year and decided to make a fresh start together in this fantastic area of the Czech Republic. I have an engineering background and Kim has a been a foster carer and health care worker for the last 20+ years so we are new at this! However we cannot believe our fortune as we both love this area and are both very keen photographers and there is LOTS to photograph. We aim to give first class customer service, we want you to come back please!

Ian Salter purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Ian Salter chose Vysocina

Kims brother moved to the area to live with his partner who is a Czech girl. Every time we visited them we noticed this property and to our amazement we found it was for sale.

We thought about our lives in detail and decided to go for it and sell up everything! It was a fantastic decision.

What makes this cabin unique

Come and ennjoy the cleanest air in the Czech republic.

Get away from the city life and relax in these beautiful surroundings.

Enjoy beautiful lakes, forests and mountains.

Witness spectacular Sunrise and Sunsets.

Visit castles, monuments, museums, water parks, or enjoy a really relaxing barbeque in our beautiful gardens

We (2 adults, 1 toddler, 1 dog) had a really great time in Zeliv and enjoyed being there so much! Kim and Ian are the best hosts, you can imagine, the cabins are absolutely cosy and the surrunding is just beautiful. It's really like being in paradise!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend break March 2015. Cabins are really cosy and superbly decorated and maintained, everything you need is in them. Kim and Ian are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them to make your stay perfect. We even had a bbq round the campfire despite being early in the year (got a bit nippy towards end of evening) I am going back in July this year to visit in the sunshine, lots of lovely cities to explore nearby. The list is endless....

We stayed here for long weekend break in March this year, absolutely beautiful place. Cabins are lovely, beautifully decorated and have everything you need in them. We even had a barbecue around the camp fire, a bit chilly as was early in the year Kim and Ian are superb hosts and extremely helpful in showing us the area. Lovely restaurant in the village. Can't wait to go back in July this year.

Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Took my wife and four children to Hideaway for two weeks and stayed in two log cabins, the children had one cabin and we had a cabin all to our selfs.They were beautify made up and didn't want for anything. Really clean. Loved the shower. Kim and Ian are English owners of hideaway which made a great diference in seeing and finding the local surroundings. We had camp fires most evenings/ Barbecue and enjoyed there wonderful hospitality. Done a lot of walking/ cycling and fishing and took some great pics. Recommend Hideaway to anyone who is wanting that getaway camping holiday. I have already booked for next year. Big thank you Kim And Ian for for being making us feel really special.

Eine Hütte, eine Hollywoodschaukel und eine lauschige Seeterrasse zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine Woche bei Kim und Ian in einer der gemütlichen kleinen Holzhütten. Ein kleines feines Ferien-Zuhause mit einer überdachten Terrasse. Wenn wir dort saßen, dann kam auch gerne mal Casper, der liebe, sehr zutrauliche Hund von Kim und Ian, vorbei, begrüßte uns freudig und legte sich auf ein kleines Nickerchen zu uns. Oder Kims Mamakatze kam uns mit ihren 3 Jungen besuchen und stillte sie bei uns, oder sie ließ die kleinen Kätzchen bei uns herumtoben. Auf dem Hideaway-Grundstück gibt es ein paar sehr lauschige Ecken: Die große Hollywoodschaukel mit Seeblick, die abends immer romantisch mit bunten Lampions beleuchtet war. Oder die selbstgebaute rustikale Seeterrasse und die Hängematten - natürlich auch mit Seeblick - mitten in einem kleinen Birkenwäldchen direkt oberhalb des Seeufers. Dort konnten wir in gemütlichen Sesseln den Sonnenuntergang genießen. Ein Highlight waren die abendlichen Singstar-Battles mit Kim, Ian und einigen anderen Feriengästen. Wie schön wir gemeinsam gesungen haben.... und wie viel wir lachen mussten dabei. Das bleibt unvergesslich! Tagsüber kann man wunderbar im See baden. Oder eine See-Tour mit Kim und Ians Schlauchboot machen. Oder einen Tagesausflug nach Czechky Krumlov. Die Woche bei Kim und Ian hat uns sehr gefallen, nicht zuletzt auch deshalb, weil die beiden herzensgute Menschen sind, denen das Wohl ihrer Gäste auch wirklich sehr am Herzen liegt. Kims Motto: "Man kommt als Gast und geht als Freund". Ja, Kim, genau so ist es.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We loved having you stay with us. Hope you dontt mind but I have translated your comments to English below. " We spent a week at Kim and Ian in one of the cozy little wooden huts. A small fine holiday home with a covered terrace. If we were sitting there, then came also like Casper, the love, very trusting dog by Kim and Ian, over, greeted us happily and lay down on a little nap to us. Or Kim Mama cat came to us with their 3 boys attend and nursed it with us, or let the little kittens frolic with us. The Hideaway plot there are a few very secluded corners: The large porch swing overlooking the lake, the evening was still romantically lit with colorful lanterns. Or the homemade rustic lakeside terrace and hammocks - and of course with lake views - the middle of a small birch grove directly above the lake shore. There we could enjoy the sunset in comfortable armchairs. A highlight was the evening SingStar Battles with Kim, Ian and some other holiday guests. How beautiful we sang together .... and how much we laugh had it. The unforgettable! During the day you can swim wonderfully in the lake. Or a lake tour with Kim and make Ian's boat. Or a day trip to Czechky Krumlov. The week at Kim and Ian was much appreciated, not least because the two good-hearted people, which really is the welfare of their guests also very important. Kim's motto: "You come as a guest and leave as a friend". Yes, Kim, just as it is.

1a Blockhüttendomizil mit allem was man zum kombinieren See-Wald-Angel-Wander-Fahrrad-Urlaub braucht

  • 5 of 5

Es war noch etwas kalt anfangs und da tat der gute Ofen in der Hütte seinen Dienst, sehr schnell hatten wir 30 Grad-Sauna, aber schön beim knisternden Feuer. Dann wurde es doch noch warm und wir konnten den See und seine Umgebung bei Zeliv gut nutzen.

Ein klein wenig Aussteigerfeeling im wenig touristischen Zeliv kommt dann schon auf, auch wenn der nächste Kaufland nur 15 km entfernt ist.

Wir waren zum überwiegenden Nichtstun = Ausspannen da, (Work-Life Balance ist Käse weil die Work auch zum Life gehört und es deshalb nichts zum Balancen gibt) und dafür war es ideal und sehr günstig.

Unser Hütte war fast komplett ausgestattet (Fernsehen, DVD, schnelles funktionierendes Internet, Bettzeug. Gefehlt haben uns mehr Handtücher, Salz, Pfeffer, Olivenöl und Balsamico.

Hervorheben möchte ich noch das nette Betreiberpaar, die uns auf Nachfrage mit allem versorgt haben. Allerdings sollten Sie auch Englisch sprechen, sonst könnte es schwierig werden. Und ein Tschechisch-Wörterbuch für die Umgebungstouren und Shopping, Essen kann nicht schaden.

Alles in allem Full Points.

Ach ja, es gibt noch einen Hund der nie bellt und gern schnorrt :-) und abends eine Katze die auch nicht bellt und neugierig ist (will aber in der Regel auch nur Futter).

We are surrounded by a large dammed reservoir, forest and mountains. Local villages and attractions include an ancient monastry, churches, hotels, a white water rafting and conoeing center used for European competitions, several large dams in superb settings. (Great for artists and photographers). There are designated cycle and hiking routes on the doorstep. Carp and other fish may be fished in the lake at the bottom of our gardens by local permit. Swimming is available in the lake or in our small 3.6, heated pool. We also provide a dingy if you fancy a ride on the lake.

There are many grocery shops in the local village with larger shops a short drive away. Prague is only a 1 hour drive.

We are a small familly business and pride ourselves on looking after our customers.
