Our beautiful cottage of 90m2 has been renovated in recent years and completely refurbished with new furniture. The cottage has two bedrooms, electric heating and a wood stove. There is also WIFI recently installed and there is satellite TV with all Dutch channels. Suitable for 4 to 6 people.
Classification: On the ground floor entrance, a recently installed new bathrooms with heated floors, shower, toilet, two sinks and washing machine. The living room is furnished with a three seater sofa, armchair, coffee table, fireplace and TV. The dining area includes a new kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, ceramic hob and fan oven. There is also a coffee maker, kettle and toaster. There is a dining table with 6 chairs. There is also an additional sofa bed downstairs.
On the completely renovated first floor two bedrooms are furnished. The master bedroom has a 2-bed, the smaller bedroom has two single beds. There are two extra single mattresses available and there is a cot.
The detached cottage is located in a beautiful area on the border between the Jizera Mountains and the Giant Mountains in the Czech North Bohemia. Because the cottage is located on a slope, you from the beautiful, large, green garden surrounding the house, unobstructed view of the valley and the picturesque mountain scenery in the area.
In the village of Velke Hamry you find an evening shop. But in the neighboring village Tanvald, 5 min. Drive, can be found three large supermarkets and numerous shops. There are also several restaurants in the area where you are good (and cheap!) can eat and drink.
Guests have access to all rooms in the house, including the sheds. In the garden are two barns in which among others are stored furniture and wood for the stove.
By the magnificent (protected) areas under the Iron Mountains and the Giant Mountains, this area both summer and winter ideal for various activities and trips, with or without children. A visit to the bigger cities, such as Liberec and Jablonec nad Nisou, is recommended. Even a trip to Prague is very easy to do (about 1 hour).
In the summer there are many excursions to charming villages and castles in the area. The area is very suitable for short and long walks through the beautiful mountain scenery. Also, golf and cycling is often done here.
The Iron and Giant Mountains are the perfect areas for the winter enjoy winter sports. In the neighboring village Tanvald is a beautiful ski area with several lifts and long runs. About half an hour away you can find the larger resorts of Harrachov and Rockytnice nad Jizerou. The largest ski areas in Spindleruv Mlyn and Pec pod Snezkou can be found approximately 1 hour.
This house was very comfortable and well-equipped with everything we needed as a base for our 2-week summer holiday in the Czech Republic and for driving to nearby countries. It would also be a good choice for a winter holiday, as the pretty mountain ski resort of Harrachov is a very short distance away.
The cottage sits in a nice, quiet, wooded and secluded setting, on a hillside but it is not totally isolated from neighbours nearby. It is situated on a small country road (leading directly to Tanvald) just outside the village of Velke Hamry. It is an easy 2-hour drive from Prague Airport, mostly on motorway.
Velke Hamry itself (like many other places in the Czech republic, which suffered from neglect under Communism) is rather run down, with some formerly beautiful but now dilapidated buildings. Tanvald has a few supermarkets and it is also a fairly short drive to Liberec, a larger town with more amenities. Bear in mind that the roads can by windy, local speed limits are very low and the Czech drivers abide by them religiously. Therefore, getting anywhere can take longer than anticipated.
The cottage is ideally located to allow day trips to various local attractions, as well as further afield to Prague, Dresden (Germany) & Wroclaw (Poland). There is much to see and do in the area and there is also a wonderful and affordable array of Bohemian glass and crystal (still made in some factories in the vicinity) available to purchase from local shops. When visiting Prague, we would strongly suggest you use the park and ride facilities at Cerny Most and take the metro in and out of the city. We found this the most stress free way to visit.
The arrangements for arriving and leaving the house were very straightforward and Ivan, the key manager, was very helpful (despite our inability to speak Czech!). The owners of the house were very friendly and accommodating, in helping to arrange our stay.
This was our first trip to the Czech Republic and it proved interesting, enjoyable and memorable and we may be back. We would warmly recommend this cottage and location, if you want to see the real Czech Republic and also take in the busy tourist sights of Prague.
The cottage was very individual furnitured. In an old and modern style. The cottage has been recently renovated and was equipped with the latest technique (dishwasher, TV, ...). Facilities for small children are available like tableware, steps and also some toys are in the cottage.
The fireside helped us, besides the electrical heating, to overcome the cold temperatures outside so that it was very lovely and cosy to stay inside. All members of our family liked the cottage very much.
We zijn hier in mei 2016 geweest, en hebben erg genoten. Het huisje zag er goed verzorgd uit en ligt op een prachtige plek. Snel support door de eigenaars en beheerder bij contact. Omgeving erg mooi om te wandelen, en mooie grotten/watervallen. Perfecte locatie dus om diverse mooie gebieden te bezoeken.
In februari 2016 voor de tweede keer op rij met het hele gezin op wintersport geweest en wederom hebben we heerlijk genoten. Het huisje is ideaal voor ons gezin. Alle voorzieningen zijn aanwezig en prima in orde.
Tel daarbij op de gunstige prijzen voor boodschappen, uit eten gaan, huren van ski/snowboardmateriaal, skiles en de skipas en dan is de enige conclusie, dat het vakantiehuis (en de omgeving) van Madlenka en Remco een prima en zeer betaalbaar adres!
Wir hatte eine schöne Woche in ihrem Ferienhaus.Alles war sauber und gemütlich und super ausgestattet.
Hausschuhe sollte man nicht vergessen da es etwas fusskalt ist der Kaminofen aber dafür gut einheizt.
Habe dieses Haus einem Arbeitskollegen weiterempfohlen und würde selbst wieder buchen
Betreuung durch Vermieter und Hausmeister war super.
We (2 volwassene en een tiener) hebben twee heerlijke weken doorgebracht in dit huis in Velke Hamry. Het huis was erg goed, comfortabel en compleet. Rond het huis heb je veel privacy en rust, zonder dat je heel erg afgelegen zit. Prachtige heuvels/bergen in de omgeving en verschillende wandelroutes. Op korte afstand rijden is er ook genoeg te zien, al is het voor tieners niet heel royaal, het helpt als ze zichzelf kunnen vermaken.
