The light and airy kitchen / diner opens off the hallway. It is fully equipped with kettle, Dolce Gusto coffee machine, waffle maker, toaster, double oven, microwave, touch control electric hob, fridge / freezer and full size dishwasher. A unique feature is the traditional woodstove which can be used in colder months to provide additional heating and ambiance.

Upstairs you'll find two main bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms; two twin rooms and a large family bathroom. The main bedrooms have king size beds and each have their own sitting area.

The house is surrounded by a 3½ acre meadow garden with a forested eastern border. Garden amenities include: a Weber barbecue; outdoor table and bench seating for alfresco dining; recliner chairs and a hammock.

                                                              Delightful home in the beautiful countryside

                                                              Lawrence H.

                                                              My husband and I stayed at Peace of Eden with our adult daughters and son-in-law, and we recommend it wholeheartedly. We felt we were in an ideal location for exploring the beauties of northern and eastern Bohemia.

                                                              With three full bathrooms and very private bedrooms, the lovely, spacious, immaculately clean house was perfect for us. The modern kitchen and large dining area suited us well when we chose to eat at home, and we appreciated the comfortable great room with its leather furniture, carefully chosen fabrics, and easy-to-use heating. We were at the house in early October, and because it was cool and we had rain showers most days, we didn't spend time outside. But we never felt confined, since we had many nooks where we could spread out.

                                                              We were surprised to discover how many things there were to do and see within short drives from the house. We drove through the Cesky raj area (the house is very close to both the Trosky and Kost Castles); spent time in the Giant Mountains on the Polish border; enjoyed restaurants in Mala Skala, Jicin, Turnov and Frydstejn; and traveled to Prague and Kutna Hora. The fall colors were beautiful!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for your positive review. We're so delighted you enjoyed your visit to the magical Czech Paradise. It's always exciting when our guests experience and enjoy some of the many new discoveries we've enjoyed ourselves over the last 10 years. Well done for bringing your Spirit of Adventure !! We hope you'll visit again and look forward to welcoming you back.

                                                              Excellent host, good property

                                                              ARUN G.

                                                              Andrew is a very good host, took care every minute detail. Property is good, well equipped, at very good picturesque location. Only thing which bothered us was a typical smell, particularly in one bath room. Andrew, please resolve this issue. We would love to visit this lovely villa again.

                                                              A very lovely house

                                                              Martyn J.

                                                              My wife and I stayed for week at "Peace of Eden" and can only say how delighted we were with the house. The house has been refurbished to a very high standard, with great facilities. a fantastic kitchen, lounge , 4 great bedrooms and very luxurious bathrooms, 2 of which are en-suite. The location is far away from the hustle and bustle that we are used to...very relaxing from enjoying the lovely garden, the very nice weber bbq, the table tennis table and the trampoline all set up in the garden. We would certainly recommend staying here...thanks Andrew and Linda for all the help, and the brilliant directions ensuring we found our way to the house without any problems..

                                                              The location is quite remote, but a few minutes in the car gets you into Turnov, with the Lidl supermarket and other facilities that might be needed.

                                                              Wonderful stay and very well appointed.

                                                              Rebecca W.

                                                              We were two families who stayed for 4 nights between christmas & new year. Wonderful first impressions - beautifully decorated and lots of space for us all. Great outside space too. Quiet, clean and easy to find. Very prompt & friendly communications with the owner. Only downside (for the husbands!) was the Internet not working.

                                                              Would return again, maybe in the summer so as to experience this part of the world in a different season.



                                                              We had a lovely time in this wonderful house!

                                                              Everyting was great, clean and so nice furnished.

                                                              With our owne small pond in the garden!

                                                              Very luxurious cottage with marvelous surroundings

                                                              Leon à.

                                                              We knew beforehand that the cottage would be luxurious, but when we entered we were simply blown away. It is very spacious, yet cozy. The kitchen is very well equipped and there were even some board games and an ipod dock. All the furniture and equipment is like new. You can see that there has been put a lot of effort into decorating the cottage. We had a lot of fun lighting the fireplace in the living room. There also is a new fireplace in the garden. Andrew has always answered my questions very quickly and in an elaborate way. You are also provided with an elaborate booklet about the cottage, surroundings and highlights in the region. This helped us a lot, since we didn't want to miss out on any of the beautiful treats this region had to offer. I highly recommend this cottage and look forward to staying here again next year.

                                                              'Peace of Eden' is located in the heart of the Czech Paradise (Cesky Raj), the first UNESCO GeoPark in Czechia (the Czech Republic). We call it our 'secret garden' at the heart of Europe. 'Peace of Eden' is super accessible being only 1½ hours / 122 km from Prague International Airport (Vaclav Havel Airport) and 1 hour / 97 km from the centre of Prague, by car. The region is famous for its forests and magical 'rock towns'. These sandstone rock formations have been sculpted by the elements into natural creations of Gothic grandeur and Baroque extravagance. Along with medieval castles, neo-Gothic stately homes and other historical gems, the area is an adventurer's paradise just waiting to be explored. Each season has its own lure - from autumn's gorgeous colours that gild the misty forests, to the magical snowy wonderland of winter, to spring's multitude of glowing greens and the relaxing warmth of summer's lazy days. For activity junkies, mountain biking, rock scrambling and climbing, hiking, downhill and cross-country skiing, river kayaking and trail running are just a few of the options to choose from. For those looking for a slower pace: enjoy picnics and rambles through the forests, laze next to a lake or bubbling river, explore the rock towns, visit historic attractions or just while away the hours with a great book. Sip from a tall glass of iced tea or one of the many famous local beers in the 3½ acre meadow garden. And for jaded city dwellers overwhelmed by the busyness of life, the Czech Paradise is the perfect place to escape 'far from the madding crowd' ... the area is quiet, peaceful and crowd-free. The wide variety of scenic drives throughout the area are delightful. If you are willing to venture a little further afield then the centre of Prague is only 1 hour away, perfect for a day trip - why not enjoy dinner in the Old Town before heading back to Peace of Eden. Being only 45 minutes from the Czech border, it is also easy to venture into Germany or Poland to broaden your horizons. Beautiful Dresden, with its fascinating history, is 2½ hours / 180 km away. Jelenia Gora, in southern Poland, is only 1½ hours / 74 km away through the winding passes of the Krkonose (Giant) Mountains.
