FAMILY FRIENDLY ECO FARM WITH HORSES

South Moravia Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroomed house

The farm is 45 minutes from Brno Airport. It is secluded at the end of the road and so is quiet with no passing traffic. It sits in a commanding position on the side of a hill overlooking the village of Vrtezir. The main house has 4 bedrooms, a modern kitchen with an open dining room and living room. There is 1 bathroom and 2 separate WC's. Behind the farm house is a horse shoe arrangement of barns and stables with a small cottage attached separated by a 6ft fence for privacy. The farm is fully accredited as a Bio farm and lambs are raised. It is surrounded by orchards of Apple, Pear, Plum and Cherry all of which give a supply of fresh fruit throughout the summer season. Cider is made on the property along with elderflower champagne. There is an organic vegetable garden from which foodstuffs may be ordered, there are also a couple of horses available for riding upon request. The next door farm has a small herd of cows and is otherwise all arable.

Keppler farm is renovated and was acquired in 2010 by a young Englishman from London.

All bed linens and towels are provided. There is a final laundry/cleaning charge of Eu50 at the end of stay in addition to the rental price.

This area of the Czech Highlands is very beautiful. Vrtezir is 1 mile from the village of Stepanov nad Svratkou which has a pub/hotel, a post office, supermarket, pharmacy and a general store. For comprehensive shopping Bystrice nad Pernstejnem is 5 miles away and has banks and everything that you need.

Pernstejnem Castle in Nedvedice is about 4 miles distant and is well worth a day trip, Horse riding is available at the farm and fishing is available in the river in the valley.

The town of Jhilava is 40 minutes distant and is an old walled city and well worth a visit with its medieval buildings and a pleasant zoo. Zdar nad Sazavou is 25 minutes distant with its Unesco Santini Church and Kinsky Castle. 40 minutes in the opposite direction is the city of Brno which has a myriad of attractions. Prague is a 2 hr drive to the North, and Vienna a 2.5hr drive to the South

Both Nedvedice and Bystrice have a good railway service with trains to Bro central then to Vienna and Zdar/Prague. Brno has an airport served by Ryan Air and by Whizz Air to London Luton and Stansted.

Bystrice has a large modern open air swimming pool complex along with tennis courts etc.

The tennis court in the village is clay and can be used at any time.

A car is a must and the property is not wheelchair friendly.

Huck Keppler is a Major in the British Army, He bought this farm in a dilapidated state in 2010 and has renovating the land and the buildings. The main Farmhouse is now light and airy with a modern kitchen and very comfortable for 6 people.

Tim Van Rellim purchased this farmhouse in 2010

We are organic in our approach and are surrounded by beautiful countryside and forests. If you take a walk around the land you are guaranteed to see a plethora of wildlife. But a 45 minute drive to Brno brings you all the benefits a big modern city.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there for one week with our two teenage kids. It was quite beautiful there. The farmhouse is nestled in rolling hills with farmland interspersed with pine forest. We really got an authentic feel for both farm living and for living in the Moravian countryside. Very comfortable yet not touristy or overly packaged. We enjoyed so many aspects of staying at the farmhouse: the long walks through the fields and forest, picking cherries and the small yellow plums they grow in the orchard, hanging out with the chickens who wander around the property, feeding the lambs. Also, the fresh eggs and apple cider from the farm were delicious. Our kids fell in love with Huck's dogs, Artie and Sandy. Huck and Tim were great hosts - they were always available, friendly and helpful but they also gave us the privacy we very much wanted. We were in Prague the week before and that was extraordinary, but staying at the eco farm gave us and our kids a much less diluted feel for living in the Czech Republic.

Stay at wonderful Czech countryside

  • 4 of 5
The farmhouse is spacious, quiet, bright, located in the very pretty Czech countryside (with a hot-air balloon passing in front of the living room window..) and sufficiently equipped, (wifi.. ) for a great and relaxing stay, complemented by the welcoming service provided by the owner.

We would already recommend staying at the house; with a couple of further improvements (modernising bathroom, part of kitchen) it would go towards a 5 star stay.

Beautiful place for vacation

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week in July. The owners were very nice and helpful. The house is equipped with everything you need, it is roomy and quiet, lots of daylight. I loved the balcony of the middle bedroom, it has a very beautiful view over the village and the hills, shade most of the day and a great place to sit and read. There is also a balcony in the first bedroom.
Some of our visitors would have liked to have Czech TV channels, there were only Brittish ones.
In Nedvedice less than 10 min drive away there is a nice restaurant by a little river and the Pernsteijn castle is a must see attraction.
A great place to stay if you want to relax in the country side.
