Our home

Our home is comfortable, clean and cozy. It has been featured in a prominent Czech home design magazine for its style and charm. We have three lovely bedrooms on the 2nd floor (each with its own bathroom and picturesque view of the fields). There is also an office space with a library, full of English and Czech literature. The 1st floor has a wonderful space for gathering, either to enjoy the warm wood burning stove or simply to indulge in a glass of Moravian wine. There is a large kitchen equipped with modern appliances, which is adjoined to a sizable dining room which receives beautiful morning sun, where we like to have morning tea or coffee. One of our treasures is the original, functioning wood burning stove that will bring you back in time! Our garden is simply an oasis to enjoy anytime! Depending on the time of year, you may be able to pick cherries or plums from our tree! It's especially romantic to sit by the campfire, over some cheese and wine (or to enjoy a traditional Czech meal of sausages and beer) ;~) If you like nature and peace, our home is for you. One visitor said "This is the place where Buddha could live :-)"

Who we are

  1. We are Daniela and Ondrej. We were born and raised in Czechoslovakia, but decided to emigrate to the United States during the Communist regime, where we settled and raised our three children who are now of adult age. However, several years ago we decided to leave our professional jobs in the US and return to our native land, Southern Bohemia. We wanted live in our country when it was finally free, changing and developing towards a prosperous democracy! Moreover, we wanted to help restore structures that were senselessly deteriorating. As a result, we established Stone Angel Bed & Breakfast that we also offer to like-minded folks, in exchange to stay in a new place and learn something about a part of the world we have not yet seen. This is our first house exchange and we welcome the opportunity to live in a new place! Something of specific interest would be to stay somewhere in the northeastern mountains of the US with our family during the week of Dec. 26 to Jan. 2. However, we also welcome stays anywhere around the world which are of natural, historical or cultural significance. Daniela especially loves and makes art, while Ondrej enjoys books and maps. We love nature and anything beautiful!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

"Stone Angel" is a meticulously restored 1776 farmhouse located in the heart of Southern Bohemia, a region of lakes, rivers, small villages with churches, castles, hills with fields, meadows and forests. Marked trails facilitate navigation though picturesque natural landscapes, local villages and towns, ideal for nature enthusiasts. You can explore cultural history and architecture in its full beauty ? including medieval castles, baroque churches, cemeteries, and other unique historic landmarks while also experiencing local Czech village life. Recreational activities include swimming, hiking, cycling, fishing, and horseback riding. Moreover, our central location allows you to stay in a pleasant rural setting from which you can take day-trips to Prague (UNESCO site), Karlstejn Castle, Cesky Krumlov (UNESCO site), Tabor, and Karlovy Vary. Local castles of Orlik nad Vltavou and Zvikov are within a 10-mile radius, accessible via ferry, car, bike or by foot. The village itself is quaint, quiet and private. The sunsets in this region are remarkable, as are the stars in the evening. Something we love to do is ride our bikes for fresh baked pastries in the morning, located in Kovarov, a neighboring village.
