My son booked this farmhouse for all the family from Czech and Scotland to get together so that our grandson could spend time with all his family as they live a distance away from everyone.I personally loved the place and had a very relaxing holiday (especially lying in the hammock) and would say that the fishing lake was enjoyed by some of the family.Gabriella is very helpful and helped arrange horse riding trips and also for a cook to come and do evening meal one night which was absolutely delicious.Only downside was the pool was not for our use which was a bit disappointing due to the fact that there was so many of us and we only had the smaller hydro therapy pool.We were allowed use of pool for 2 days after asking Gabriella.Would recommend car hire if you like to go out and about to visit some of the beautiful countryside and quaint little towns which are in this area.Would happily have stayed in this very relaxing and beautiful spot where villa and outside area was excellent.
