It was a privilege to stay in such magical place. Castle looked like from a fairy tale from the first sight. And I felt like beeing in a fairy tale as I was in castle garden all alone. That happens during the week out of the main season, when there are not much visitors. I stayed in the biggest suite, apartmant Rainer. The dining room and bedroom are really spacious and carefully decorated with old furniture and lots of paintings. Probably with the guidelines of Mrs. Stemberg who is a perfectionist. You can see that in her boutique with the dress creations and in nearbay cafe Custoza where they sell so many tempting and also delicious sweets. Most of them also by her recipies, and when she has got time, she made them by herself! Diner was another nice experience in a restaurant, which is also decorated in chateau stile, probably with some real antics. Wandering around small garden in front of the castle is nice, but for a real peace, you should go to the main park behind the building. Guests get the keys of the garden doors. Large park is partly like a botanical garden with informative descriptions (in Czech) and there is also a small zoo with lamas, kangaroos, parrots, ducks, coaties... Something to entertain children even the big ones. I also enjoyed guided tour of the castle. The best is a private one, which could be acompained by a bottle of champaine... The rooms are fully furnitured with antique pieces, a lot of them are original. There are also numerous of paintings of the family and other important persons. And the castle chapel with a few houndred years old organ (functional) is also worth a visit.
And last, all that was quite affordable!
