We have small children and we all like staying in a country as often as possible. But we really do not want to buy a cottage or anything like that. You know, it is quite expensive and one has their head full of worries with the cottage. It is nothing for us. We both work a lot in our jobs and need to have a pure rest with our children at the weekends.
We also have a dog, so sometimes it is not easy to find a stay where we can take our dog with us. But some time ago we got a recommendation on a renovated historic farmhouse that is quite near Prague. Children and even dogs are welcome there. The farmhouse is in Svojetice. That is about 30 kilometres far from Prague. We drive it for about half an hour (when the traffic is ok).
Of course, there are some parking places and the Internet connection on the farm.
They offer accommodation in several themed rooms with private bathrooms. That is amazing when you have small children.
When we came there for the first time we were very nice surprised by the natural and clean environment, although we still were near the capital city. The farmhouse garden was the place that amazed us the most for the first sight. There is also a one hundred years old lime tree in the garden. The visitors can sit under it and just relax. There is a children´s play place in the garden. So the children play and their parents really may relax. We also like walking near the farmhouse
Children can enjoy a mini zoo on the farm. Our children love it absolutely. And also a horseback riding is available there. I am afraid of the horses but our children enjoy riding them a lot. There is an outdoor riding arena on the farm. And near the farm our children ride the horses on a marked riding trail. Of course, with the protective equipment and a guide.
My colleague has a horse and it is stabled on this farm. She told us about this farm because she likes the way they care of her horse and likes also the environment her horse lives in – large pastures and clean stalls.
We have also visited a salt cave on the farm. It is made very nice. I admire the ceilings, children play with the coloured salt crystals.
On Sundays we never want to leave this amazing place.
