FAQ

How far is the house from Prague airport?

Peace of Eden is 1.5 hours drive from Vaclav Havel Airport (formerly known as Prague International Airport). It is a very easy drive and full directions are available when booking your accommodation.

Do you have access to WiFi?

There is no WiFi at the house – this is meant to be a break. However if you need access to WiFI, it is available at many of the local coffee shops and restaurants.

Is there a television?

Yes there is a television and DVD player. Please feel free to bring along DVDs to watch as the television is not linked to any channels. There is also a CD player with an ipod docking station for music.

Which airlines fly to Prague?

Most major airlines fly to Prague as it is a very popular capital city. British Airways, Easy Jet, Ryan Air, Wizz Air and most national carriers all offer regular flights.

Do we need to hire a car?

Although there is a train out to the region, we strongly recommend that you hire a car. You will need your own transport to get to the various sites, restaurants and shops.

Do you cater for children?

We have a travel cot, potty, high chair and fire surround (for the wood burner) to cater for our smaller guests. There is a shallow pond in the garden and we recommend that you supervise young children when using the garden to ensure your safety.

Do you have laundry facilities?

There is a washing machine and tumble dryer for your convenience.

Do you provide linen?

There is linen on all beds that are being used (i.e. beds will be made up according to the number of people booked). Lighter duvets are provided in the summer months and warmer ones in the colder months. There are also comforters on the beds for extra warmth and comfort. Extra linen is available should you require it. Towels are provided for use in the bathrooms.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

Peace of Eden sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms. There are two main suites each with a queen size bed and access to a full bathroom including bath, shower and toilet. There are two other twin rooms, each with two single beds. The twin rooms have access to a family bathroom including a walk-in shower, bath, toilet and twin basins.

Where do we buy food and supplies?

If you are arriving from Prague airport, we recommend stopping at the Globus supermarket in Cerney Most en route to the house. Globus sells a wide range of groceries and other items. Alternatively, if you are driving via Liberec, there is another Globus at J13 where you will be able to buy all your food requirements. Liberec is approximately 25 minutes from the house by car. For local shopping, there is a Lidl and a Penny Market which are approximately 10 minutes drive from the house.

Are there any restaurants nearby?

We recommend bringing an adventurous spirit and trying whatever takes your fancy. We highly recommend Bouckuv Statek in Mala Skala for a very authentic local experience.

What do we do in case of a medical emergency?

There is a hospital in Turnov, approximately 11 minutes from the house (see map in the welcome guide at the house). Emergency contact numbers are also listed. The nearest pharmacy (Dr. Max) is also in Turnov, approximately 8 minutes drive from the house located next to Lidl (see welcome guide for specific directions).

Is the house warm in winter?

The house is lovely and cosy during the winter months. In addition to central heating, there is a wood stove in the lounge, a traditional Czech oven in the kitchen (which provides further warmth for the house) and heated towel rails in the bathrooms.

What time of year should we visit?

It depends on you. Each season has it own unique attraction. Spring is great for forest walks, mountain hikes, road and mountain biking as well as trail running. Summers can be very warm and so they are perfect for lazy hammock time with a book, lake swimming, canoeing, kayaking or scooting through amazing countryside on a hired scooter. Autumn carpets the floor with swathes of gold – wonderful for forest rambles, cycling and trail running. Winter usually brings snow – local ski runs are ideal for beginner / intermediate skiers and there are plenty of nearby slopes for toboggans and snowball fights. more comprehensive slopes are approximately an hours drive away. Historic houses and towns can be visited in all seasons.
