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 Pelhřimov District

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.

We arrived as guests - and left as friends

  • 5 of 5

Für uns war die Zeit bei Ian und Kim ein wunderschöner und erholsamer Urlaub! Die Wohnung und die Anlage entsprachen den Angaben im Inserat, wir haben uns auf Anhieb sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Anlage ist relativ klein, sodass alles sehr familiär ist.

Die Ausstattung ist kein Luxus, das kann man bei dem guten Preis/Leistungsverhältnis sicher nicht erwarten, aber es ist alles da, was man braucht. Die Umgebung ist herrlich. Das Essen gut und sehr günstig.

Der größte Luxus sind die Vermieter. Ian und Kim haben sich vom ersten Tag rührend und wohltuend gekümmert. Sehr schnell entstand eine angenehme freundschaftliche Atmosphäre mit gemeinsamen Lagerfeuer, vielen Gesprächen bei Wein und Bier und nicht zuletzt einigen fröhlichen Singabenden in der gemütlichen Kamin-Blockstube.

Unser 3-jähriger Sohn war auch begeistert, da er alles hatte, was ein Kind in dem Alter braucht. Ein Pool, Rutsche, große Schaukeln, ein großer Spielraum mit viel Spielzeug, ein Boot zum Rudern auf dem See am Grundstück und natürlich Katzen und seinen geliebten Hund, von dem er immer noch erzählt.

Es gibt viele Freizeitmöglichkeiten, sowohl in der Natur als auch in den reizvollen Orten und Städten in der Umgebung.

Wir kommen ganz sicher wieder und empfehlen dieses friedliche und erholsame Fleckchen Erde auch allen unseren Freunden!

Vielen Dank Ian und Kim für die schöne Zeit! See You soon!

Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wer die Natur sucht, um den Alltag zu entfliehen, muss hier her. Wir haben die Ruhe gesucht, um Musik zu machen und wurden von diesem kleinen Fleck heile Welt inspiriert. Der See vor der Tür, Bäume wo man hinsieht und die Gastfreundschaft der Inhaber machen den Aufenthalt unvergesslich. Vielen Dank und wir kommen wieder. :-)

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.
