Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is on the outskirts of Brno - the second largest city in the Czech Republic - in the village of Rozdrojovice. The town centre is a twenty-minute drive. We live in a small terraced house built in 2004. There is a living room connected with the kitchen on the ground floor, a courtyard and a small, but beautiful garden. In the living room there is a fireplace which has become a centre of the house. On the first floor is a bedroom, bathroom, a children´s room with normal-sized bed and a study, with open space under the roof that can be used by an adventurous child as an additional bedroom.

= marks the location of this home
A forest is a 10-minute walk from our house, as well as the Brno dam lake, a nice place for both summer and winter activities. Brno itself has a truly strategic position for visitors from distant parts of the globe to see a lot from Central Europe. Prague is a two-hour drive (200 km), Vienna even less (130 km), and similarly the capital of Slovakia Bratislava (120 km). There are a number of great UNESCO World Heritage sites within close vicinity: the functionalist Villa Tungenhat in Brno, Valtice-Lednice area, the towns of Kroměří¸, Olomouc, Třebíč and Telč, the Zelená Hora church in ´ďár. In addition, there are old romantic castles and spectacular limestone caves with a deep abyss (Macocha).
Something about ourselves
We are a fairly unusual family - our relationship ripened only after about 25-year acquaintance: each of us has two adult children (from 23 to 35) and together we have a sweet little boy Oliver (he will be 4 in June 2013). Peter is free-lance English teacher and interpreter, Hana is free-lance translator (translating books from English into Czech). We share cultural and sports interests – skiing (mainly cross-country) and cycling. In summer we share a dream job: we both are cycling guides for a travel agency, guiding foreign tourists - cyclists in the most beautiful parts of Central Europe. When we are in your place and you in our house, there are our four adult children (they live on their own, two of them in Brno, they all are fluent in English) who could be helpful with any arrangements you want to make.
