Accommodation in the Highlands - eco agro tourism
Welcome to our 400year old farm in Lhotka near Telč. The big farmhouse as you can see it nowadays was built by my great grandfather Jan. After the fire on 12 September 1931 when the whole building with a storage a machinery burnt down, two barns had been built and thus an enclosed court farm yard was created.
In 1957 when our great grandfather Oldřich had paid off the debts, the communists came and announced: "we are going to take it over now". They farmed here until 1989. You can picture how the farmhouse looked after the "communists' management".
Since 1995, me-Peter Novák (a professional farmer by birth and by education and) and my wife Dana have been farming here, using an extensive help of my parents, my brother Pavel and nowadays, even my children-Tomáš, Filip and Anička.
We have already rebuilt or fixed the bigger part of the farmhouse, and turned it into a guesthouse offering seven rooms located on the first floor and in the attic.
This part of the farmhouse has a central heating using boiler fired by the fragrant wood from our forest. Due to the bad experience from 1931 the whole premises are smoke free (there are wooden ceilings). However, feel free to smoke outside.
In the other part of the farmhouse we created solitude for those who prefer sleeping under their own roof and "occupy" our garden. In the orchard behind the farmhouse about 15 tents and 5 caravans can fit in there. Three electric hookups, bathrooms and toilet, sinks and a fridge with a freezer are available there. Other facilities are shared with the farmhouse.
Sheeps, fruits, fish...
As animals are part of the country, behind the farmhouse you can find the pastures for our sheep. The fruit orchard (feel free to sample the cherries) is behind the farmhouse. A small grove with a "rope climbing center," a small soccer pitch and a volleyball/leg ball court are part of the garden. A few hundred yards away you will find several small ponds (we own 3 of them) which are good for swimming and fishing, deep forests with forest animals, full of mushrooms, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.
On your walk along the Interpretation Trail you can learn about the local nature, the animals we keep. Enjoy the view from the bench and listen to the wind blow or simply enjoy the bird's singing.
