South Moravia Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

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.
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.
