Lovely Traditional Cottage In Forest Surroundings
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.
Thank you very much for your very detailled and positive review. We hope to have you back as a quest in the future.

Vielen Dank! Sie sind beim nächsten Mal sehr willkommen.
Tolle Möglichkeit für eine Auszeit vom Alltag!
Klein und gemütlich.
Gut ausgestattet. Alles was man braucht.
wunderbarer Winterurlaub in toller Umgebung
Wir waren 2 Erwachsene und 3 Kinder. Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Man findet alles was man braucht. Besonders gefallen hat uns die große Küche, die wirklich bestens ausgestattet ist. Wir saßen jeden Abend am gemütlichen Ofen. Bestimmt kommen wir wieder.
Schönes Haus, tolle (Küchen) Ausstattung, ruhige Lage
Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in dem Haus verbracht. Es ist absolut ruhig und sehr gemütlich. Zum einkaufen fährt man knapp 5min, zum nächsten Skilift 10min.
Das Haus verfügt über eine wirklich tolle und moderne Küche. Es hat an keinen Utensilien gemangelt.
Das Bad ist neu und die Fußbodenheizung macht es sehr angenehm. Im restlichen Haus im Erdgeschoss sind Fliesen verlegt, da braucht man im Winter schon Hausschuhe.
Der Kamin heizt sehr gut, wenn man ihn endlich anbekommnen hat (Anleitung lesen) und man lässt ihn am besten nie ausgehen, dann benötigt man die Elektroheizung nicht.
Direkt hinter dem Haus startet der Wald und man kann schön auf Erkundungen gehen.
Der Hausmeister ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen!
Schickes gemütliches Häuschen
Es war sehr schön eine Woche hier in Velké Hamry zu verbringen. Das Haus ist super!
