Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Idyllic Prague with a group of 30 people. Although we had to split up between the two cottages, this was not a problem. They are on a few minutes walking distance from each other. All necessities were provided, the house was clean and the showers and beds were good. I'm very pleased about the contact on beforehand. Ben answered all my questions with very polite and quick responses and helped very kindly with arranging the booking and the arrival. We were welcomed by a really kind woman. We've walked trough both houses and checked a checklist. She was available to help us during the week if necessary and she was also very kind at the time of departure. Overall a very good service and everything necessary for a pleasant stay!

What we enjoyed the most was the garden, the surrounding nature and cycling paths and the perfect bus connection to Prague, lovely city!

An Exquisite Holiday in a Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight had a wonderful holiday during the week of Christmas at the Conifer Cottage. It is all that is advertised and much more. The house is spacious, clean and well maintained. All required amenities, including internet were available and fully functional. An added bonus was the availability of bicycles at nominal rent at the house. The house is directly across a cycling track and we had a lovely time cycling through the adjacent scenic nature reserve. We were highly impressed by the professional management of the property. They were exceedingly responsive, welcoming and very clear in their communication. Christmas is a great time to be in Prague and we really enjoyed our stay. We look forward to returning to Prague and the Conifer Cottage in the near future.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your IdyllicPrague holiday! Yes, it is a great location for bicycling. The gentle cycle track which runs past the Cottages takes you through the wonderful nature reserve of Silent Valley National Park to the delightful rope ferry dedicated to taking ramblers and cyclists together with their bicycles across the river Vltava

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We were surprised by how much cycling and walking goes on in the Czech Republic

and how organised it is - it is a beautiful country which we didn't know that much

about before we left. We were really pleased that we were living in the country

rather than in Central Prague especially during the heat wave. We found the buses

amazing - they follow the timetable (a surprise after England) so central Prague was

really accessible if we wanted to go there. If people do want to do lots of walking

and cycling we found the equivalent of an OS map in the stationers in the metro at

Dejvicka (we brought it back with us as we might visit again) - we found it really

useful to see where the paths went. We also found the outdoor swimming pool near

the reservoir (terminus of no 20&26 tram routes) - it is however unheated!

We had a great time in Cerny Vul and most of us did cycle at some stage. We

managed to do lots of the routes as walks anyway so were quite happy (both

children walk quite

The Cottages are situated 20 minutes NW of Prague City and 15 minutes NE of Prague Airport in a village called Cerny Vul. ('Cerny Vul' means 'black bullock' which refers to Neolithic ceramics found here) An excellent bus service runs regularly into Prague and low cost taxis are easily available. Cerny Vul is not yet big enough to be officially classed as a village, but it has a delightful relaxed atmosphere and two pub restaurants. Two government ministers have chosen Cerny Vul cottages as their holiday home hideaways.

Although cars and taxis can access the cottage, the house is situated not on a road but on Cycle Track 8100. Cycle Track 8100 follows streams and fish lakes through the forest of 'Tichy Udoli' (Silent Valley) National Park to an intriguing rope ferry built to take cyclists and ramblers across the river Vltava and hence on to further countryside or Prague City. In the opposite direction the cycle track leads to the fairytale Ukor castle.

Other Activities: Exploring Prague city. Rambling in forest and country side. Wildlife. River and lake boating. White water canoeing. Ice-skating. Cross-country s
