Great place for our personal intimate wedding
Submitted: December 18, 2011
Stayed: August 2011
The cottages (we rented both Cherry Tree and Conifer Cottages) were exactly as we expected. We had visited the location previous to our stay. The properties were very clean and well-maintained. The kitchens were well equipped and the welcome-package had all the necessities for the first morning. I would have liked to have some more kitchen towels for drying the dishes.
We had 28 people staying in the two cottages, which meant that most rooms had only 2 people (mostly couples). It was comfortable with having that many guests. Some of the rooms were next to a kitchen or a 'common' room and therefore could get a little louder. This should be thought of when having many people who might have different schedules for waking up and going to sleep, our friends and family were quite considerate of the others in the house.
The owner provided wonderful customer service. We exchanged many, many emails regarding the properties, as well as much assistance with some wedding preparations from the owner and their Czech helpers. Ben and Hana were both instrumental in making sure that our event went well and that we had only a few hiccups.
Our wedding had 65 people. On the Friday night, we had 60 people over to the Cherry Tree Cottage for a catered meal. The gardens would have been large enough, but due to the weather we used the garage and driveway. This was also sufficient in space and allowed us to set up some speakers and the tables for the food and drinks. Our ceremony took place in the garden of Cherry Tree Cottage where we had the chairs arranged in a circle. Our musicians sat inside the house with the french doors opening onto the garden (to protect their instrument should it quickly start to rain, which luckily it did not). The garden chairs provided by the owner were perfect for our event. Our dinner and party was held at the nearby Detaillo restaurant. I would recommend this property.
The bus service is convenient to enter the city, although you must watch the schedule and be aware that it can be very very busy around rush hour times. Many guests travelled daily to Prague for sight-seeing and eating. For getting some supplies (groceries and such), a rental car was very helpful. For guests with walking problems, it would be highly recommended to have a rental car. Overall, all guests were happy with their stay in Cerny Vul. People in the village were very nice and tolerant of being overrun with wedding guests for a week.
Owner's Response: It is a great privilege and a great responsibility to host a Wedding. We are absolutely delighted that once again a happy couple celebrated the Wedding of their dreams. After 15,000 Holiday Guest Nights in the IdyllicPrague Cottages we still find it wonderful to hear how enjoyable our Guests’ holidays have been, but Weddings are extra special.
