Guest Comments Feedback 

We had a wonderful holiday, thank you. 
We loved the house, the village and the
convenience to Prague!  

It was a very enjoyable holiday and would
be happy to recommend the cottage to friends.
I did not really take to many photos while at
the cottage but here is one I took in the evening
of the place.  Showing how warm and cozy it
was in the snow.
Lynn and Mark from Rome 2015/01

Our group of eight had a wonderful holiday during the week of Christmas at the Conifer Cottage.
It is all that is advertised and much more. The house is spacious, clean and well maintained.
All required amenities, including internet were available and fully functional. An added bonus was
the availability of bicycles at nominal rent at the house. The house is directly across a cycling track
and we had a lovely time cycling through the adjacent scenic nature reserve.
We were highly impressed by the professional management of the property.
They were exceedingly responsive, welcoming and very clear in their communication.
Christmas is a great time to be in Prague and we really enjoyed our stay.
We look forward to returning to Prague and the Conifer Cottage in the near future.   George from Switzerland 2015/12

The Wi-Fi Connection was Great - that was Important for the children and also for us. 
The houses are in the Near of the Centre from Prague. The neighbours were friendly.
It was a Great Holiday with our Family and Friends !     Yasemin from Germany 2016/05

It was a great holiday! Wonderful house and city!  Simona told us everything we need to know.
We enjoyed the time very much :)    Manuel from Germany 2015/01

thanks, the house was fine and we enjoyed our stay. I would add a new place to eat that Simone
suggested that was outstanding. There is a horse training facility near a small lake and you can
watch people train on horses while eating dinner. Some of the pillows are worn and need to be replaced.
But the home is great and it met all of our needs. Thanks again.   Glenn from Salt Lake 2015/05

Conifer Cottage is a great property with everything a large group could possibly need on site and I
couldn't recommend it highly enough. We were superbly supported by the owners, all the way through
from the initial enquiries and countless questions (sorry!) to the trip itself.  
It is spacious with a nice garden and set in a beautiful valley about a 15-20 min car journey from central
Prague (circa Ł10-15 into town in a taxi). That said if you don't fancy the city there are several very nice
small bars and local restaurants in close proximity to the property. We found everyone we came across to
be extremely friendly and welcoming and with local, very good quality beer at circa 56p / pint and meals
equally good value I would definitely consider revisiting Cerny Vul!              Phil Swansea 2015/05

Just wanted to say thanks to you for making our visit to Prague a success.  The cottage was very nice
and we all loved visiting Prague.  It was a lovely cottage and the children had a lot of room to play...
they particularly liked the upstairs!  Prague is beautiful and I especially liked seeing the many
beautiful churches!  While it was very cold and the snow made it a little bit scary for the
travel, it made for a beautiful visit of the city and the kids loved to play in it.  Thank you Hana for
helping us make sure we were taken care of.  Happy new year!  Scott and Sherri USA 2015/01

We had a great time.  We tried one of the other restaurants and were extremely impressed with the
quality of the food and the price.  Hanna was extremely helpful and had no problems there.
We had an issue with the traffic police on Thursday and Hanna was available to help us out – appreciate that.   
Also, the cottage itself was fine with no problems, easy access to Prague. 
We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to our friends.   Jim Chaplin Australia   2011/05

Holiday was fantastic, Prague is so far the most beautiful city i have seen and Cottage location was very good
 - from the one hand it was not far from Prague, from the other hand we enjoyed village peace and quiet.
Unfortunately Staroprament restaurant was not working, but other very good restaurant Statenicky Mlyn was
not far, so we made our birthday party in there.      We were commuting by taxis, sometimes by Buses,
it was quick and comfortable, and  when we were on our way to the cottage with the taxi, we were asking
taxi to go through the shopping center (LIDL) , where we were buying food and continuing trip home after.  
So for the future guests my recommendation will be to rent one car ( smaller or bigger, it depends on the
number of guests ) - that will make holiday even more comfortable. 
We were very happy to be in the house, it was much better then to stay in hotels - because we were livingin a
relaxed home atmosphere and it was much more easy for us to stay together and make parties in the evenings.
So I extremely recommend it  for the future guests. One thing - the table in the cottage is good when it is 4 people,
but when it is more people and we need to extend it, it becomes a bit unstable and can fell easily :)  {IdyllicPrague
problem now corrected.} 
 So the holidays were perfect, the greeting in the airport was perfect, we were very happy
and when we will want to go to Prague again we will stay in your cottages again :)   Kazimieras Russia 2012/06

Our trip to Prague was very successful.
Coffee machine was very slow, coffee-making lasted half an hour.  {IdyllicPrague Please notify
us immediately of any problem.  After running vinegar through, the coffee machine is fine.}

Chefs can recommend to everyone. Very good food and large servings. Among the diners was a
person who was supposed to be gluten-free food - this one might be just fine.
In addition, food was cheap.  Our trip was a great pleasure for all!  Arto Suominen Finland 2012/07

We had a wonderful holiday in Cerny Vul and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - the weather really was kind
to us.  Other visitors may like to experience the natural beauty of Cerny Vul on say a 45min circular walk
around the village                                                         Brian and Pauline Salter Dorset 2012/06

Everything was OK.  We spend a nice days in Praha.  The house was as we expected very nice. 
We hope to come back next time                                     Victor Toni Garcia, Madrid 2012/08

We certainly had a lovely time in Prague. It is a beautiful city, with plenty to see and experience.
We met with the people at the little restaurant and they were friendly and accommodating.
We had a lovely meal and a couple of beers before we went to your house.
Hana met us shortly after we arrived and was very welcoming, giving us information about how
best to get into the city. We called her, using your phone (very handy,) the next morning as
there was no hot water and she rectified the problem immediately.   The house is very spacious
and the children enjoyed the freedom of the garden to let off steam. We appreciated the
welcome pack. Coffee, water and toilet rolls always come in handy and we drank the sparkling
wine when we got to Slovakia. Thank you. We found Prague very accessible and, considering
the car park attendant had disappeared before we returned to our car on the second day, cheap to park. 
If we did have one concern, we thought the house could have been cleaner. {IdyllicPrague  Thank you
for mentioning that.  We are disappointed and concerned.  We pride ourselves on the cleanliness
of the Cottages.  We will make sure the Cottage are sparkling clean for all future Guests.} 
All in all, Cherry Tree cottage has a lot to recommend it. We wish you all the best for the future.
                                                                                                Claire Leitheiser Germany 2012/08

Just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had staying at Conifer Cottage.  
We will definitely re-book and recommend.    Thank you   Julie Boydell   Mancherster 2011/06

We really enjoyed it. Very nice house. We will return another time.  Roman Hofmann Germany 2011/05

We did have a great vacation. The house worked well.           Wayne Worthen USA 2011/05

My daughter had a wonderful, safe stay in Prague, it was you that made it possible.  Joe Byron USA 2011/07

Click here for more details of this feedback

We all really enjoyed the holiday thanks, the house was great, clean and very well equipped,
Dan was helpful and so was Hana and the bike man, as for the area it was beautiful and
we enjoyed cycling and walking throught the lovely countryside, it was ideal to spend quality
time with the kids and chill out. The only little thing that could of made it better was maybe
some sun loungers for the garden, as it is a nice size garden and ideal for a bit of reading and
sunbathing (or sleeping when you have ridden your bike to the zoo and back!) 
{IdyllicPrague - sun lounger is available - it was in Conifer Cottage - please ask!}
Anyway Thanks again  Maybe be in touch for next year   Nicki Fountain, Debbie and Kids Devon 2011/09

We very much enjoyed the holiday; the accommodation was good, Hannah, her husband and Dan
were all very helpful when needed and we appreciated the info we were given and bus tickets.
                                                                                      Kathy Curran Durham

We all had a great time and the cottages were both lovely and perfect in every way.
We would all love to stay there again when we visit in the future. Also Dan was
very friendly, nice and helpful. Thank you from us all.    Kerry Irvine Kent 2010/11

We did have a great vacation.  The house worked well.  Wayne Worthen USA 2011/05

We hope to visit Prague again and we'll keep you in mind!  ~ Eric Cox USA 2011/04

We had an enjoyable week. Hanna was really helpful and very kindly met us at the bus stop on the
day we arrived, which we were not expecting. She also came to our rescue when we accidently locked ourselves out !!
We were very disappointed that the local restaurant was closed while we were there, having read all the menus etc.
It would have been helpful to have a corkscrew. It would have been helpful to have larger towels.
{IdyllicPrague - These should have been provided.  If anything is missing, please ask!}
All the information on the website and what you sent us via email was really helpful, to get us orientated.
We enjoyed the garden area and walks and bike rides around the cottage.
It was lovely being in the country, with the city centre being so accessible by bus.
Many thanks                                                          Margaret Osmont Leeds 2011/06

We have just about completed our holiday in Europe and we would have to say that of all
the places we stayed in Europe your accommodation would have to rate as the best. 
It was great thank you, I can highly recommend the meals at the local pub/restaurant, their
cheese on toast was superb and they were extremely helpful in finding the house
and your agent who was also very helpful.  Thanks for a great stay. Lyn Newman Australia 2010/05

We had a great time and enjoyed Prague, house was very comfortable and it was lovely to
be in the countryside!                                                                     Louise Friend Kent 2010/08

We would like to say a Big Thank you for the wonderful stay we had at the Conifer cottage,
must say your cottage is really impressive and catered to our every need. 
All the children had a ball and made a lot of noise, we do hope we did not disturb anyone with our
late night singing and banter. Prague is a very impressive place and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves,
we will definitely recommend your cottage to our friends.       Norman Cortez Surrey 2010/08 

Our Wedding location had to be perfect yet affordable. Eventually we chose a village in the countryside
just outside Prague. We invited both our families to stay with us for a week and we accommodated all
20 of them in two holiday rental cottages - Conifer Cottage and Cherry Tree Cottage.
These cottages are affordable and comfortable - well equipped, clean and attractive with plenty of room
for everyone. Getting in and out of Prague is pretty easy too -the bus stop is round the corner from the
cottages and it takes about 15-20 minutes to get into the city.

With a few long distance runners and active types in our families, we were able to make the most of the
countryside - forests, cycle paths, riverside runs.

There was even an integral but separate private apartment for bride and groom. The countryside village location,
the enticing rustic pub/restaurants and the easy access to Prague gave us everything we had dreamt of.
The Prague Church we chose (St Josefs) for our Wedding was breathtakingly beautiful and the English speaking
pastor was helpful and welcoming.  They made things very easy for us - advice on paperwork, advice on the
ceremony and a run through two days before the big day.

The day after the wedding both friends and family gathered at the cottages for a BBQ and a bit of a sing-a-long
(you'll have to bring your own guitars/singers for this). Being close to a few supermarkets made it easy to cater
for a big group...plus we had the pub across the road on standby just in case.

The IdyllicPrague team looked after us wonderfully, even down to helping with the translation of menus, liaising
with restaurant staff, booking taxis to/from the airport.

We would recommend this to anyone!                                              Ed Morgan Belfast 2010/08

We have just got back having had an amazing experience in Prague made even better with your
fantastic accommodation.  The house was beautiful and the service was also excellent especially Dan.
As for the Medieval Dinner, we went to a fantastic place called the Medieval Tavern on Celetna 17,
Prague 1 which was very entertaining and I would fully recommend it.
I will fully recommend your cottage to all who would like to holiday in Prague.
                                                                                      Bernadette Pereira Croydon 2010/08

We just returned from our
wonderful short trip to Prague.
The houses had a perfect size
for our group of 34 accordion
players.  We all enjoyed our stay
very much.

Our orchestra "NOVAorchestra"
www,ace-ev.de got the 2nd prize
out of 2 in the classical category ;-),
and our conductor Eliseo Grappasonno
was named the best conductor
of the competition :-))).  

Thank you for your fast and detailed
help with any questions I had,
and there were many!!
And thank you for your flexibility
with our changing number of visitors.

Sabine Canditt Germany 2010/10

We had a great week in the cottage. It is very well equipped. Hana is very friendly and helpful.
The technician was very responsive when we had a problem with the electric gate.
Access to Prague by car is very fast and on the recommendations of Hana we were able to park
easily in the periphery and finish with the subway.
The brakes on a bicycle needed slight adjustment.  {IdyllicPrague - any concerns, particularly safety
related, please contact us immediately.}                              Alain Colinet France 2010/07

i have stayed twice at conifer cottage and will definitely stay again. it really is home from home and has
just about everything you could need. communication and help from the owners is second to none!
there is someone there to greet you on arrival, transport can be arranged with the lovely 'Dan the Man'.
Three is a lot of information in the villa on things to do, bus times etc, bicylce rental is cheap and there
are really beautiful scenic routes around. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!  Julie Boydell Manchester 2011/09

We had wonderful holidays. The problem with the hot water was solved right after we had talked about it.
But all these were minor problems, thanks to your calls everything was solved.
We enjoyed every day, the restaurants you recommended were excellent, the transfer to Prague with bus and
metro was very good and the possibility to use the internet in Cherry Tree Lodge was very helpful.
We will gladly write in your guest book and send some photos.  Carola Forst Germany 2010/09

The holyday was great. The house is very big an lovely – also it´s good to reach the city. 
                                                                      Nina Opitz www.Arnsburg.de Germany 2010/10

We had a great time in the Czech Republic and at Idyllic Prague. The homes made a great starting point
for many trips within the country and the access to Prague via the metro/tram was very easy.
The contact with Hana and the restaurant was very convenient.
I have not yet looked at my pictures. When I do, I will send you any that may be of interest to you.
Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your guest home. It was wonderful. Tim and Lisa Dietz USA 2010/04

As you know the bike rides are great, we had a wonderful time exploring and would strongly
recommend anyone who rents the cottage to also rent the bikes, which were in good condition
and easy to use.  Your friend Dan who met us was extremely welcoming, helpful and informative.
{IdyllicPrague.com For details of Dan Greeting click here.}  We also spent a day at an open air
swimming pool  (not a natural lake but a man made pool) which had changing rooms, restaurant and bar.  
That was fabulous in the hot weather and I would highly recommend it to future guests.  
{IdyllicPrague.com Click here for details of Sarka swimming pool.  For details of swimming click here.}

The house was lovely and I loved the garden and kitchen. It had everything we needed,
but unfortunately it was very hot weather and there was no ac or enough fans.
The boys were originally sleeping in the upstairs bedrooms but it turned out to
be too hot so they slept downstairs. {IdyllicPrague.com  Please inform us
of any problem.  We would be pleased to provide more fans.  Also we can
increase the ventilation in the roof space which helps to cool the Cottage.}

The restaurant across the road {click here} had just re-opened under new ownership and
although we did not eat there, the family were very friendly and the beer and soft drinks
were extremely cheap.  

The seafood restaurant that was in your list was expensive, not great food
and pretty unfriendly,  so you might want to re-visit that recommendation.
Or maybe we were just unlucky that day.   {IdyllicPrague.com Ouch!  Thanks for the update.
For details of Restaurant Chorvatský Mlýn click here.  It is several kilometres from
IdyllicPrague and is not routinely used by our Guests.  Our previous recommendation was
2 years old, we are very grateful for the update.  We would like to publish more Guest
comments - please tell us your experiences so that we can share them with other Guests.}

Špejchar Restaurant {click here} nearby Czech restaurant that you recommended
Great place, no one spoke a word of English but everyone tried very hard and they
found an English menu for us. Lots of fun and good food. Tables outside front and
back and a nice cosy inside- we loved it. Great food, great coffee. Good service and
good value. We went back at least three times.  

We had take away pizzas from the pizza place and the boys liked them.
Delivery to the house was completely drama free  {click here}

That’s about it. Having had another holiday (in Italy ) since Prague, I’m afraid I am
a bit vague on details, but I hope it helps.  Overall we had a really good time,
I would not hesitate to go back – although perhaps not in such hot weather.
                                                                               Anne Brabazon Dubai 2010/07

Thank you so much for the rental. It was really nice and Hana was really helpful and friendly.
                                                                           Karen Albrecht Germany 2010/08

We had a nice break in Prague and were very satisfied with your property.  Hana was also
very friendly and helpful.  If there is one thing which could be improved, it's the cooking ware,
a new pan and some sharp knives would do the job.  We would certainly come again.
{IdyllicPrague - any requests like this please let us know early in your holiday so that we can
respond before you leave!}                                         Achim Wagner Switzerland 2010/06

We went to Prague during December to visit the Christmas markets & experience the atmosphere.
We were not disappointed as the Markets and the entertainment at weekends with children
singing & dancers on the open air ice rink was wonderful to watch. We hired a car although
we found that it was easier to go into Prague Centre by local bus from Cerny Vul to Dejvicka
and then either walk or take the metro. We also drove to Karlovy Vary which is such a pretty
spa town & also Karlstejn Castle. We stayed in Conifer Cottage which was very comfortable,
warm and well equipped and is an excellent base for visiting both Prague and the Czech Republic.
Would have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation to family and friends and hope
to return ourselves.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff in the
Czech Republic for a very well organised holiday               Salvi, East Sussex England 2009/12


Here it is a year and a half later and I cannot stop raving about our entire Praha experience!
In fact I have been putting off throwing out my Prague calendar that we had received from you.
The pictures bring me back to such great memories. Unfortunately it is a 2007 calendar and I
will have to part with it eventually. Is there any way that I can get a 2009 version?
Thank you again for being a part of our trip of a lifetime.  Dan and Tracy Friedman USA 2007/05

Just wanted to thank you for your help with our holiday. It was a fantastic time, everything was
absolutely perfect and we all enjoyed it lots! I'll definitely recommend Idyllic Prague to anyone
going to Czech Republic.                       Nikolay Kukushkin Oxford University Group UK 2009/11

Thanks, yes we had a lovely time. The house was great, I would recommend it to anyone.
The links into town are very good (bus/taxi). I would not drive into the city centre as there is no need! 
We will would use this property again.       Benny Goodman (large Wedding group from UK) 2009/09

I would just like to say a massive thank you, for a great welcome, great weekend had by all.
The house was wonderful, the greeting at the airport, the hospitality at the "local" was great,
the breakfasts got bigger & better each day!!  I must say, Jim my partner said we must go back,
just the two of us, for a weekend maybe. So I'll be in touch again. Until then.  Thanks for everything.
Regards, take care                                                 Lisa Taylor & Jim Sharp.  Derbyshire 2008/09

We all had a great time in Prague. The houses felt like home! Your team in Prague did a very good job.
The weather was fine! Prague at its best.   The bar made breakfast for us.
                                                                           Barbara Koehler.  Germany 2010/04

We had a great time, thank you very much!
The cottages were lovely with enough space to accommodate all 15 of us comfortably and the
helpful information you provided us with for taxis and local amenities was greatly appreciated.
Your colleague, who met us at the airport was very attentive and shared lots of interesting stories
about Prague with us. He was a great and very understanding when we asked for a slightly later check out.
Everything was organised to perfection and we felt very at home throughout our stay.
Kind Regards,                                                       Elizabeth  Ossipian London 2009/08

We had a lovely holiday, Prague is a lovely city with some splendid architecture. 
It really helped being met at the airport.  The driver (Dan) was extremely helpful and couldn't do
enough to accommodate us.  He made us all feel very welcome and deserves a special mention. 
They all appeared to genuinely care that things were ok.  We enjoyed taking a few bike rides in the area.
There was plenty of space for us and it was a nice location.  It was an easy 10 minute walk to the bus stop
to get in and out of Prague.  The house was warm and comfortable.  It was nice to have the welcome pack,
particularly milk etc so we could have a cuppa when we arrived, a nice touch.
                                                                             Fiona Buchanan Somerset 2009/10

Just to thank you for  making our holiday in Prague so good. The accommodation was clean and tidy
and our welcome pack an added bonus! Unfortunately as you had warned us, the internet wasn't working
{IdyllicPrague.com - an electrical storm damaged the internet connections in the area - now repaired}
I loved the accommodation and have already recommended you to two of my friends - and I only got
back this morning. My brother and my sisters loved it too. it was a good base to explore Prague and
we were very impressed with the transport system and the cooking across the road! {click here}
Many thanks for your help in helping to make this holiday a fun and relaxing holiday for my family members.
Do you do winter lets - for one?   My very best wishes, Yvonne Parmenter.  Wiltshire 2009/07

Thanks the holiday was good, just a small point:- better information about the transport from
Cerny Vul to Prague for disabled people {IdyllicPrague - click on www.DPP.cz/Barrier-Free-Travel/Buses/
Also a special printed pack of information is available - please ask.}
Otherwise things were very good, the cottage suite was good for the disabled. One last thing remember
that disabled people need a remote to get in and out of the gate. {IdyllicPrague - remote controls should
be provided.  If you don't have a remote, please ask!  Click here.}

But all in all Cherry Garden Suite is very good for disabled people.          Ian McMaster.  Kent 2009/07

We had a fantastic time thank you, You have a lovely place & all enjoyed and most of them want
to go for longer next time so will be in touch. Friends have taken pics, just waiting for them to sort
them out.  Dan was waiting for us on arrival and was very helpful in every way.  Any way many thanks
for letting us use your lovely property and will be telling all our friends and will definitely be booking
again with you!  Will send any pics as soon as poss. Kind regards Mark Thompson Worcestershire 2008/09

We did have a great holiday!  The Cottage was great and met the needs of the person in a wheelchair
very well. We were very impressed! Thank you very much!     Raimonda Sidaraite  Liverpool 2009/04

We are home after a really relaxing holiday.  We enjoyed the accommodation, walks and excellent food
at the Mill.  We did appreciate the help given by Dan.   So many thanks for your really helpful website.
                                                                                           Marion Wilkinson Plymouth 2009/05

We would just like to thank you once again for a lovely holiday. We will be recommending
you to all our friends and family.  We hope to stay at cherry tree cottage again.
Would you thank Lucie, Dan and the people who came to clean, who also made our holiday enjoyable.
                                                    Carole Clouston Hartlepool 2008/08

Hi, sorry I don't have any photos but I couldn't have asked for more help from the Idyllic Prague team,
they were fantastic! It was brilliant to have the local information and directions, and especially to have
a contact number; we rang late one evening for help talking to a taxi driver and they were really helpful.
The cottage was lovely and the pick-up from the airport was so good as our flight was delayed for 4 hours
and the gentleman waited for us! I would definitely stay there again.  Danielle  Sutherland Newcastle 2008/10

It was fabulous and we are really grateful for the beautiful experience you offered.
                                                    Adrienne & Jim Moore Louisiana USA 2008/06

The cottage is lovely and had everything that we needed. It was very clean and in good shape.
The garden is beautiful this time of year, by the way. The irises were in bloom. Lucie, who greeted us
and showed us the Cottage, is a peach.  One thing: I know this is minor, but the TV remote control
needs new batteries.
{IdyllicPrague - any maintenance request please email or telephone, we can usually fix it in a few hours.}

Thanks for letting us use your charming place.                                   Vicki Peters USA 2009/05

We had a wonderful time and your cottage was great! Thanks, Laura Schweitzer USA 2009/05

Finally back in NZ today!  We enjoyed our stay at the lodge and I would stay again. 
The lady that greeted us was very helpful.    It was really useful to have on-site internet
access and computers to answer emails and to make further holiday arrangements on-line.
This was the only villa style accommodation we used that offered this.
Most people will take the bus from Cerny Vul to Praha at some stage so an explanation of
how the Buses/metro tickets work {IdyllicPrague click here} and also a diagram showing
where to catch the bus returning to Cerny Vul from Praha would be helpful.  {click here}
The location approach photos were good.     Stuart and Kieran New Zealand 2009/05

We are having really good time in the Cherry Tree Cottage, thank you very much for the
unforgettable holidays!        Thanks a lot again!        

On behalf of our group I would like to show you and all your team our sincere gratitude
for unforgettable holidays we spent in Cherry Tree Cottage.
If we ever come to Prague again we would like to stay in Cherry Tree Cottage again (if you don't mind) ;) 
Thank you again, we wish you and your team all the best!!   Alexey Akimov   Moscow 2009/01

The holiday was terrific! The weather was really good too!   We thoroughly enjoyed
a walking tour of Prague, Karlstejn Castle, Petrin Hill (we walked all the way from
the Old Town to the top!), the zoo and many other sights. We crossed Charles Bridge
every day as Andrew wanted to see the caricaturists at work! 
Thank you so much indeed - you have put just so much work into the house, the website etc.
We'll be back!   All the best   Diane, Ian, Peter and Andrew   Aberdeen 2008/04

Thank you for an amazing stay in Prague. The cottage was lovely and we all had
a fantastic time and thanks again for an excellent level of customer care both through
the booking process and  when we were in Prague.  We all think Lucie and Dan are
fantastic (I think one of my friends had  a bit of a crush of a crush on Dan!!) 
I'd definitely recommend you and the house to all my friends.
                                                                    Emma Keele London 2008/03

We had a wonderful time in the cottage.  Everything went very smoothly, Dan met us at the
airport and collected us with plenty of time to book-in for the return flight.
The people the local pub were fantastic, so friendly and attentive and the food and beer were excellent.
Prague was easy to visit by public transport and truly is a beautiful city, but unfortunately it has
become a bit of a rip-off, like all major cities.  {IdyllicPrague.com Thankfully the exchange rate is improving!}
But that did not spoil the holiday and I am sure we will come again, some time in the future.
One comment to pass on to your guests: The pub at the Mill Pond is currently shut, but if you walk
or cycle on for a half or mile or so, there are two delightful pubs, that both do excellent food.
Best Regards,                                                Terry White, Portsmouth 2009/05

Thank you so much for the most pleasant holiday we spent in your lovely Idyllic Prague,
in Cherry Tree Cottage. We were and are really grateful and happy for your kind attitude
and lovely atmosphere which you created since the first day we arrived by plane to Prague airport.
You and your local staff members were exactly as you described in your www-pages.
I and my wife spent such one of our best holidays in Idyllic Prague. The atmosphere in
the closest restaurant/pub and local Czechs were really friendly, local food and beer was tasty
and it was amazing easy to move although I use my wheelchair every day.
What you could have done to have made our holiday even better?  Well, Dan and the local
brochure pointed to use the certain taxi phone number. {IdyllicPrague - click here}
Once we took a different taxi from a taxi bar nearby Charles Bridge and had to pay some extra.
So it’s better to use reliably phone numbers and taxi, as recommended by IdyllicPrague.com
which we did several times during our holiday.  It would be helpful to have more maps etc
for nearest restaurants etc {IdyllicPrague.com click here
We were and are really grateful for Ben and his staff and who knows someday, somehow
we are going to visit the Idyllic Prague, the Cherry Tree Cottage again.

What can I say about our 2nd IdyllicPrague holiday in Prague?  All things was wonderful, like always.
Magnificent city, nice and comfortable accommodation, excellent beer. Tudor Dumitras Bucharest 2009/06

We had a lovely time despite rather wintry weather. We were so impressed with
your little company. The website was extremely helpful and we negotiated public
transport in and out of the city with relative ease. The local pub was brilliant,
friendly and patient with three children who could never make up their minds!!
We enjoyed one sunny bike ride (if chilly) along the cycle path to the river.
Suggestions - a few more pillow cases.  {IdyllicPrague - should be plenty - any problem
like that please always ask.}
A timetable showing both Buses both in and out
of Prague. {IdyllicPrague - click here} A map showing where to catch the bus back
would be helpful as it is not opposite where you alight.  {IdyllicPrague - click here and here}  
These are all very minor things.   Thanks again . We will definitely be recommending
you to our friends.                                        Alison Base Oxfordshire 2008/10

We had a lovely holiday.  Points to note:
    Ideal location
    Easy public transport
    Local pub good food and drinks (very cheap!)
    Weather was fantastic
    Dan was extremely helpful, we also booked him for the return to the airport
    Enjoyed using the bikes
Perhaps you could remind guests that there is nowhere to get access to cash unless you go
into Prague. We tried at the post office in the next village - Horomerice
- but this was not possible.                                                Elaine Philip Scotland 2008/07
{IdyllicPrague.com recommend the cash ATM in Suchdol - you can walk to it through the forest click here}

We had a great time. Lovely house in a nice location and Prague was very beautiful.
Thanks for having us.   Regards Diane                        Diane Strachan  London 2008/07

The holidays were very nice and we all had very good time there.   Thank you very much
for all your help.   Please bring my appreciation also to Lucie and Dan who helped us a lot.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay.                      Georgina Nicholson London 2008/03

We had a great time your staff are fantastic!         Jacqui Kirkland Australia 2008/04

Super thanks to You!  Our vacation has been great!      Risto Koronen Helsinki 2008/11

It was a great holiday, and we wish we could have stayed for longer -  thanks for asking. 
We enjoyed our stay in Conifer Cottage.  The bedrooms were all nice, clean and spacious,
our kids found loads of space in the property to be adventurous and to play around in. 
The bath with the Jacuzzi was a treat – even though the next one had to wait for water
to heat up again after the first one was done, it was well worth it. 
{IdyllicPrague.com a high capacity ecological condensing gas boiler has now been installed.}
The lawns were brilliant as well, nicely kept.  We even managed to park two cars easily, which
was very helpful.  Connectivity to Prague was also brilliant.  Nisheeth Srivastava London 2008/08

We most certainly enjoyed our stay at Cherry Tree Cottage. The house was comfortable
and magnificently appointed. Also the location worked out very well for us .
As you know we had a car and therefore could venture far and wide - which we did.
However I confess to us getting lost on a few occasions, but in a sense this simply
added to the adventure of it all. Wisely I feel, we did not take the car into the old part
of Prague but chose the easier method of travelling by taxi. 
The bottom line is - we were so pleased we discovered Cherry Tree Cottage, it represented
excellent value and provided us the opportunity of getting a good feel of Czech.
I have to add that the cost of goods in Czech is about half that of France. So, me being
a Scott, this added to the appeal. We would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending
Cherry Tree to any fellow Australians who may be contemplating a visit to The Czech Republic.
Thank you for making it all possible. Regards, Ian and Margery Johnston.  2008/04

"The short version is that we had a fantastic time,
we have been raving about the trip to all our friends
and telling them that without Dan and Lucy and the
website you set up, our trip would not have been
anywhere close to what it was.  You have a great
house and an even better staff.  We will send notes,
pictures some comments and some helpful hints
from the American perspective as soon as we settle
in and get the pictures onto the computer. 
Take care, and thanks again for a wonderful trip." 
                        Dan and Tracy Friedman USA 2007/05

"We had a great time in Prague and the Czech
 Republic and couldn't have asked for a better
place to stay. Everyone that went had an absolute
ball. We had no worries getting around the city by taxi
and were well looked after at the local pub. Thanks
for all your help and we will be recommending you
and your company to all of our friends."
                                                       Ben Hodges, Australia 2006/01

We had a very nice holiday.  The house was well located to get into Prague easily
and to explore other parts of Bohemia.  We especially enjoyed the pub across the way
- very nice people.  Thanks,  Meg Baker and party California 2008/06

"Have had a great holiday in Prague!!  Its such a beautiful place to visit, we could
wonder round the streets all day long!  Our holiday was made even more perfect
by the brilliant care from the IdyllicPrague team.  On arrival we were met from
the airport and driven to our lovely Cottage (included in cost!!) and were then
greeted by another member of the team and shown around.We regularly ate
over at the pub and enjoyed every minute of it,  we would get a great meal
with desert and drinks for half the price we would in England!!  Not only that
but the presentation of the food was amazing, something similar to a top restaurant!!
We ordered breakfast a number of times from the pub which was brought
over to us, precisely the time we asked for.  Not only was the breakfast
brought over for us, but it was all laid out and tidied away for us when
finished as well.
An amazing choice for a holiday, with exceptional service from Idyllic Prague. 
Thanks again for the use of your lovely house in this beautiful country.
Many thanks for a super holiday."  Craig Trimming Hampshire England 2006/04

"Would like to thank you for the rental of your Cottage your staff were helpful
and efficient. The facilities and information were great and I would recommend
to further guests to use the public transport system which is reliable and cheap.
Lovely beer over the road along with a pool table in the games room made it a
frequent haunt. 
Without doubt the best meal (Superb T bone best ever tasted anywhere in world !)
although slightly dearer and also fantastic setting in the woods is the KOLIBA
which is about 20 mins by bike down cycle track to left as you leave cottage.
Also Buffalo Bills in Prague 1 worth visiting."   
                                                    Matthew Lane Blackpool England 2006/08
"As you predicted, we had a wonderful time.    Whilst the buildings in Prague may
be beautiful, the apartment blocks did not seem to be and we were so glad to be
staying in your delightful cottage.    The bus always arrived very punctually and
was a pleasurable ride.   We had a few frustrations over buying replacement
24 hour tickets!    Enquired of the bus company, the Metro counter and the tourist
information office.   Eventually found the ticket machines (how come the Metro
did not know!) but then had to overcome the problem of having 4 lots of 150K in change.    
Having solved all the issues we got our tickets and then learnt it was cheaper to buy
separate tickets for the journeys we wanted! 
{IdyllicPrague - for details and photos of metro ticket purchases click here and here}

After three days of visiting buildings, we opted for the countryside.   Walked for miles
along the cycle path firstly to Suchdol and on another occasion to the rope ferry.  
We initially dismissed the pub opposite Conifer Cottage and instead frequented the
one near the bus stop.    Only towards the end of the week did we discover the
splendid food at the first.   The wine from the barrel in Unetice was excellent too
- less than Ł3 per litre.
The three of us went cycling to Untice a few times.  
Our plan was to walk to the rope ferry and pick up a taxi the other side of the river.  
The cycle path from the ferry was quite strenuous (too much for Gerry) and so we
crossed back over the ferry, walked to the Alexandra Hotel in Roztoky, had a late
lunch there and got a taxi home.     All agreed it was a wonderful day - preferable
to central Prague!
The pub opposite Conifer Cottage portrayed to us the wrong image.   When we first
saw it, we dismissed it and avoided it for several days.    When we ventured in, we
were so disappointed not to have checked it out previously.   Tony had a 24hr bug
and did not want to eat so rather than leave him out, two of us went to that pub
with a casserole dish and gesticulated that we wanted two portions of Strogonoff
and rice to take home.     The serving was huge - three of us had our fill that evening
and there was enough for two more the next day.    And not at the expense of quality
- it tasted superb too!   So my advice to others is "don't judge the pub by the outside"!    
The other pub was very much a local and had charm but we did not taste the fayre
which was obviously very much for the locals.
There really was not any aspect of the holiday which marred our enjoyment
- and there was plenty that excelled it!
A really great holiday - we all enjoyed every minute of it.   Dan and Lucie were very
helpful and we were so grateful to Lucie for arranging for the cleaning lady to come
late on Saturday to accommodate our late return flights.
If we had to mention a request it would be clothes pegs for the washing and a long
handled brush.  It is a big kitchen to sweep on your hands and knees with a hand-brush!
{IdyllicPrague - provided as standard.  If anything is missing, please ask.}
Many many thanks for making the week such a successful holiday for us all.   We will be back!"
                                                                        Mary McKenzie Bristol 2008/06

Your service is wonderful and we haven't even been there yet!!  We were away over
the Easter weekend but your calendar and letter were there when we got home
yesterday, so I was planning to email you to thank you very much for the beautiful
calendar and other information. If your Cottage is as good as your thoughtful care
and service, we will be more than happy to recommend it widely!!
                                                Mitch  Canada 2007/04

What a wonderful holiday was had by all in Prague!  Many thanks for all your support
throughout the week.  Only today I was telling a friend about our lovely stay in Prague!
We had a memorable time with highlights being a meal at the Nebozizek restaurant
on Petrin Hill, a night time cruise on the Jazz boat, cycling to the Pizza restaurant by
the Vlatava, wandering around the old town and having coffee in the splendid Obecní dům
cafe. There is still so much more to do so we hope to be back!  Cathy London 2007/07

The holiday was very good, was relaxing and cheap.  Many thanks  John Kadis London 2007/06

We are having a fantastic holiday !                                Amy Tipping Dorset 2007/08

We had a good holiday thank you and the Cottage was lovely. The IdyllicPrague team
were pleasant and helpful. Could not be improved!                   Mary Leach Hereford 2007/09

You have been a real help throughout the planning and booking of our holiday in Prague.
I'm sure we will have a great time!                            Laura Smith Staffordshire 2007/09

Everything has been great here. The accommodation is excellent, well equipped, clean and private.
The staff have been exceptional. Overall, everything is and has been very well organized
and is a credit to you.    Thank you,                            Peter McHugh  Stockport 2008/11

Yes we had a fab time, the house was great, transport excellent and Dan and Lucy looked
after us very well. We would definitely recommend it!  Apologies for not writing sooner,
I have been away and also was hoping to have some photos to send you for the web site.
We tried a 'local' drink in the bar opposite, served in test tubes (very intriguing for us as we
are all scientists, even recognised the test tube rack!).  The only slight disappointment was
that the bar was not doing evening meals, however, the 'motel' up the road did a great meal
for us one night, and we could have had a meal cooked in the house if I had looked at my
phone in time to get Lucy's message!  Thanks again for everything,
                                                Cyndy  Surrey 2007/03
Yes, we had a lovely time.  As for feedback, I can't say enough nice things about Dan, Lucie,
and Oxanna.  They were extremely helpful.  Great staff.  The formerly great restaurant across
the lane has been taken by new management and the menu is less varied.  Otherwise, all was
good & we're very happy to recommend the cottages. The small details like the bulletin boards
and 24 hour bus passes were especially appreciated.   Nora Pyne Nottingham 2007/09

"We were surprised by how much cycling and walking goes on in the Czech Republic
and how organised it is - it is a beautiful country which we didn't know that much
about before we left. We were really pleased that we were living in the country
rather than in Central Prague especially during the heat wave. We found the Buses
amazing - they follow the timetable (a surprise after England) so central Prague was
really accessible if we wanted to go there. If people do want to do lots of walking
and cycling we found the equivalent of an OS map in the stationers in the metro at
Dejvicka (we brought it back with us as we might visit again) - we found it really
useful to see where the paths went. We also found the outdoor swimming pool near
the reservoir (terminus of no 20&26 tram routes) - it is however unheated!
We had a great time in Cerny Vul and most of us did cycle at some stage. We
managed to do lots of the routes as walks anyway so were quite happy (both
children walk quite well). Our younger son needed to be a bit older and bigger and
more used to cycling a lot to make real use of a bike (I think that would be true for
any child) - whatever you do with younger and smaller children you have to pace
yourself anyway.  The people in the pub were really helpful - Harry got on well with
Pranter (he considers himself a chef too) so many thanks to everyone there. Also to
Dan who efficiently picked us up and took us to airports and train stations - he is a
really good 'ambassador' for the Czech Republic when you first arrive."
                                                               Sue Steward Norwich England 2006/07

"The staff you have there are a credit. The lady on arrival was 1st class. Dan your
taxi service 1st class.  The restaurant was an added bonus. Cheers and thanks
again"                                              Margaret Sanderson, Newcastle 2006/09

"We had a wonderful time thank you so much.  The weather was so warm
and the people were friendly, particularly once the ice was broken. We had
a few laughs with shop keepers when we struggled to get what we wanted
but they were very kind, particularly the lady at Unetice who was very
patient and got things for us to choose from.  We loved Prague and loved
the castle area, the markets, Jewish quarter and Charles bridge especially.
Transport was good; we managed Buses and metro although fares were a
bit confusing. We found the Cottage was well equipped, comfortable,
peaceful and very clean. we were well looked after from arrival to departure
and Dan and Oxana did very well. The only thing we couldn't find was a
spare tea towel.
We went on one long walk. The countryside was beautiful in spring. We
followed the stream to the main river but couldn't cross as the ferry didn't
run; too early in the season?  We found the cycle path went through the
town Roztoky but the footpath followed the stream and was better.   We
found the old church and thought it was beautiful.
We hope to go back one day."                          Sandra, Surrey, England 2006/04

"In May 2006 I had the good fortune to spend a week in Prague staying at the
IdyllicPrgue Cottage with Sonia and Bryn Solly. What a treat! The house was
spacious and very comfortable, equipped with everything you could want. We
found the public transport into Prague very easy to navigate and the village itself
delightful to wander round. Across the road from the house was a local pub serving
filling meals at a very reasonable cost. And, when I unfortunately got tooth ache,
on the pin board in the kitchen I found the name and phone number of a local dentist
who spoke English.   I must thank you for your clear directions, we drove over from
Brussels and had no trouble finding the Cottage, even in the dark.  Once again,
thank you for our holiday in the Cottage.  We had a wonderful time.  It was
marvellous to be able to have such a relaxing holiday in such a lovely house
and location."                                          Sally Brink, New Zealand  2006/05

"I did have a wonderful time discovering Praha; I went out nearly everyday to
explore some other place or event.  It was such an education for me as well. 
There were some places I didn’t get to see, so I hope to return someday." 
                                                                        Emily Hall, Detroit 2006/06

Just a quick note to say thank you for our short break in Prague. Everyone was so
helpful and helped make our stay so memorable. The cottage was just as you had
described and more than met our expectations, shame the phone didn't work 
{IdyllicPrague - malfunction of cordless phone.  A wired phone is also available, and
a second cordless phone has now been added as backup.
}, but it didn't spoil anything for us.
We spent a fun afternoon over at the local pub, eating, drinking,..... and dancing
with anyone who could stand up! It would have been useful to know that the pub
didn't serve food in the evenings before we arrived, {IdyllicPrague - pub restaurant
usually serves evening meals - but cannot be guaranteed.  There are 2 other pub
restaurants in Cerny Vul, and the Unitice pub restaurant is nearby
.}  but the pizza
delivery service eventually found us. Prague is a beautiful place, full of friendly people,
stunning buildings and brimming with culture - the ballet was second to none,
and the Christmas Markets were wonderful. 
The ballet we saw was Swan Lake at the beautiful State Opera House, it felt so special
as we managed to be seated in 2 boxes close to the stage. It wasn't the usual Hen Party
excursion, but as Kayleigh used to train for ballet from being a little girl, it was a real
treat for us all. We had a lovely meal just around the corner.
Thanks again to all concerned, especially Lucie and Dan for all their help with taxis,
not forgetting the breakfast which Lucie arranged for us, it was superb!
Happy New Year to you and the team.  Many thanks once again,  Christine Owen Lancs 2007/12
A few words to let you know how delighted we were by our stay in your property
in Prague. All of us, Michelle included (our wheelchair-confined daughter), found
the house spacious and well-equipped, easy to settle into and comfortable
- I particularly appreciated the firm mattress, after incurring backache from an
earlier holiday. The barbecue was put to good use, the travel passes were very
helpful on our first day, and we are very impressed by all we saw in Prague, and
by the public transport system.  As we had our French contingent's car, and
Michelle's disabled parking permit, she was able to accompany us on various
activities. Many thanks to Lucie for her research into disabled facilities in the city.
We went on the Jazz Boat on the Vltava, to the 'Aspects of Alice' show at the
theatre, and I bought DVDs of 'Rusalka' and 'Prodana Nevesta', plus CDs of
'Dalibor', much cheaper that the cost in UK. Must come back for the opera season!
As you know, there were problems with the security alarms, which were eventually
sorted out, but that was the only thing that gave us trouble. Many thanks again
for providing this opportunity, and for being on hand when there was a problem. 
                                                                    Arnold Saxton, London 2007/08

"The Cottage is great and we like your team there too. My wife says thank you
very much for the flowers, milk, champagne, tea bags to welcome us. Dan met
us at the airport; very friendly and polite, and came punctually to take us back
this afternoon.  Lucie was charming and bright - we met her son too, and very
helpful with minor things.  Oxanna was very discrete, we did not see her until
we left, but the rubbish bin was emptied every day etc.
We had a wonderful holiday, although my eldest daughter cancelled at the
last minute as I think she was in a spin getting her degree show exhibits
up etc but that was our only snag.
If I can think of anything you could improve... that is a hard one, but while it
is fresh in my mind, we were lucky we already had a metro map from someone.
That is useful. I think we wasted quite a bit of time finding the bus stop at
Dejvicka to get back home on the 316/356, as this is not too obvious tucked
back a way from all the other bus stops.  So maybe a little drawing of the
Deyjvicka roundabout and metro. {IdyllicPrague, click here and here for key map of
.}  One expects it to be the other side of the road from where you jump
off. Maybe a bus timetable? (I'm being picky now) {IdyllcPrague click here for
a bus timetable
}  We could not read the ones at bus stops. We figured the
bus arrives at Cerny Vul about 10 past the hour, and leaving the house on the
hour is a good plan. We liked the metro, very clean and fast. You assume most
of your guests will use taxis, but the bus and metro service is really good, so
perhaps a one page guide to getting in and out, {IdyllicPrague click here for
guide to using bus and metro and key metro stations
} and the most likely metro
stops for the top tourist spots, either side of Charles bridge Malostranská, and
Staromestka. Thank you for the complimentary metro tickets to get us started.
My impression of Prague is that it is quite like Paris, but without the prices, and
a bit of language difficulty! What a delightful city... such great architecture and
art. We were amazed how quickly we were out of the airport and dropped at
Cerny Vul, and our Tesco order requested for after 6 pm was punctual and we
had just been home for half an hour. Your favourites list on the Tesco site was
useful. We did have one or two surprises- particularly the bread- but of course
it is Eastern Europe, and the bread is quite hard and chewy. I don't know why I
ordered 12 boxes of eggs- I should have realised that it was boxes and not
single eggs!!!! However I think you should tell all your guests how good the
Tesco delivery thing is. I have never used internet shopping before, and being
without a car, this was really very helpful.
It was a very nice way to visit Prague, and you have a lovely house in a nice
spot, to come back to each evening after lots of walking around. Much nicer
than a hotel, even a luxury hotel can't match coming back to a spacious clean
and tidy house with a garden and your own groceries. And the excellent pub
right next door.
We were blown away by the churches in Prague. I have never seen anything
like St Vitus cathedral, or the baroque splendour of St Nicholas in the lesser
quarter. We were treated to impromptu violin concert in the other St Nicholas,
in the old town square, and much street music around the Charles bridge. We
walked about and saw a lot. Took the tram to the castle. It is a magic place.
We are really very grateful that we were given a couple of your Cottage
publicity flyers. We were delighted to spend our holiday in the Cottage, we felt
quite at home there. One more suggestion, while I think of it- you need a drying
up rack in your kitchen.  {IdyllicPrague - a drying up rack will be added!}  If we
find some really good photos we will mail them to you.  Best wishes, and please
thank everyone of your team who were so kind and efficient".

We are now in situ in your delightful cottage. Everything as described.
We were very happy with our week at Conifer Cottage. There is, as promised,
a lot of space and a beautifully tended garden with good corners for the little
children.  Unfortunately, only I and my little daughter, who slept through most
of it, got to cycle towards Okor which I enjoyed more than down to the river.
I think I cycled 6km or so to Tuhomerice and found the countryside and villages
appealing. There are also branches off Cycle Track 8100.  As many have mentioned
before, Dan and Lucie and Franta are excellent, portray a professional image and
are very good at getting you settled in.  No complaints! And the Rent-a-Chef meal
got 10/10!  Their timekeeping is impeccable also. In fact I had to tell Dan to wait
because we weren't ready!  Thank You once again for all your attention to detail
and help up to and including our stay      David Rodway Hertfordshire 2007/08

I thought the cottage was lovely and well equipped and we really enjoyed the pub
too.   The only thing I would like to mention is that the bus times on the website
don't match the actual ones so I assume the bus company must have changed its
timetable.  {IdyllicPrague - bus timetable updated!}  I don't have any photos as yet
but I know some of the others do so I will forward this email on to everyone in our
group so they can respond individually to you.  Many Thanks"

"Just a quick note to say that we had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed
our stay at your lovely property in Cerny Vul. If you remember the menu
changed at the Ve Mlejne from the one I had downloaded from your
website. It was no problem as the next day there was a knock at the
door and we were handed the new menu in ENGLISH in a Grambrinus
folder, this we left on the kitchen table for future guests.
Jan (if I have the name correct) who drove us to the airport said you
had asked that I send some pictures, I'll do that though it will be
sometime next week. I'm planning to upload some then, which could
be linked to from your site.
There was only one small problem, which in no way spoiled our holiday,
was that the internet connection fell over on the Friday night and
whenever I tried to reconnect an error message would appear saying
that the Host Computer (i.e. the internet provider) was not responding.
(IdyllicPrague note - ADSL added to provide "Resilient Broadband
The lady who came and cleaned was excellent and very
unobtrusive and did more than we had expected for a self catering holiday.
It was a great holiday.................  Thanks again" 
                                                    Anderson Family from Scotland 2006/04

"Thank you to you for the holiday, we had a really lovely time.  Your house
is a pleasure to stay in, and we thought Prague was a beautiful city.  We
spent 3 days wandering round the city and the 4th day we had a long walk
along by the river.  We planned to follow your walk to the zoo but the rope
ferry was not operating, we assumed because the river was very high. 
However we walked to the old Church and back along the river and had
a very pleasant time.  We were very lucky with the weather which was
sunny and warm, even hot towards the end of the week." 
                                                        Judy Roxburgh Sussex 2006/04

"The house was everything it claimed to be and comfortable and we were very
pleased with it.  The cleaning lady came more often than we expected saving
us a lot of chores. 
We would certainly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to spend an
extended holiday near Prague.  The broadband was very useful especially for
listening to radio4 for news and booking our hotels on the return trip.  I had to
reboot the router once when it stopped doing dns lookups.  {IdyllicPrague -
independent broadband systems are supplied in each Cottage, so if there is a problem
with one, the other should still work. Usually, as was the case here, powering off
and powering back on will fix a problem.   If not, phone for help and the
IdyllicPrague team will soon fix it!
We had a rather mixed holiday but it was no fault of yours or the cottage.  For
example while in England we got a puncture on the A14 before we even got to
Harwich, in Germany a lost hotel reservation in Meissen and a severe dent in
the car in Telc (when stationary).  In Cerny Vul a rather glum blackboard notice
outside the pub announced that the kitchen was not serving food.  This meant
that we used the pub much less than expected and usually when it was otherwise
empty of customers.  We had problems with mosquitoes but we are both unusually
sensitive to insect bites and not always sufficiently disciplined in the use of
insecticide.  There were misunderstandings regarding our arrival and departure
We purchased our 15 day Prague zone metro/bus/tram travel tickets and generally
drove to the Dejvice car park were we parked and took the metro.   We always got
into the car park after short waits for someone to leave on one or two occasions.
The man leaves at 8pm {IdyllicPrague - If you leave the car park after the attendant
has finished for the day you do not have to pay anything for parking.
}  The queuing
for metro/tram tickets was a pain.  The first time we tried we joined the queue at
Dejvice at 10:30 and just failed to reach the window by the 11am lunch hour. 
We then scrambled enough change to get to town and succeeded after a further
half hour queue at Mustek in the afternoon.  I wish they would get some note
acceptor ticket machines.  Are they waiting to join the euro?  We used the 240 to
get to Dejvicka rather than the 241 but it does leave you the big island to
circumnavigate and two tramway crossings. We used the supermarket at Dejvice
quite a lot and the Tesco at Kralupy which even used our chip and pin cards.
We would recommend the Prague tram museum, the Zamek at Nelahozeves;
Melnick, Litomerice,  the open air museum at Prerov Nad Labem and Konopiste
as outings and Telc which is delightful if time permits but is nearly in Austria. 
It might be worth noting that the Prague Muzeum MHD is closed for renovation
until 2008.  Its a long walk from the tram to find out.
The Estates theatre is surely one of the prettiest opera houses in the world.  We
saw a minimalist Magic Flute but well sung.  We also saw a massive in every way
Turandot at the Statni Opera and got lost trying to cross Wilsonova.  Both sets of
tickets were excellent from the agency which sent them to our home in advance.
(CzechOpera.cz - TicketsOnLine.cz )
We took a lot of photos.  I’ll look more carefully at them over the weekend and
put the best ones on my web site so that you can lift any or none of them at your
The house was everything it claimed to be and comfortable and we were very
pleased with it.  The cleaning lady came more often than we expected saving us
a lot of chores.  We would certainly recommend the Cottage to anyone wanting
to spend an extended holiday near Prague."

"I do think Prague is a lovely city, and has lots to interest the visitor. 
It is surrounded by beautiful countryside, the people are friendly and
I have always felt safe while there.  The house is lovely - spacious,
light and airy and comfortable, and access to the city is quick easy,
and inexpensive."                                         Linda Hudson, Essex, England 2005

"Super for all the family!   There is so much to see in Prague.  I would
recommend it to anyone."                              Valerie May, Surrey, England
"Prague is a cultural, beautiful city and is only a bus ride away.
And of course, out in the countryside of Cerny Vul, there’s the
alternatives you don’t usually combine with a historical city,
long cycle rides and swimming in the local lake! The atmosphere
is friendly, and the pub just opposite serves a large variety of dishes,
all very nice."                                              Sarah May, Surrey, England 2005

"Prague is an amazing city - so unspoilt and atmospheric.  The transport
and food is so cheap, and the house facilities and location are ideal - in
the country but easy and quick access to the city.  We must come again." 
                                                        John Moseley, Gloucestershire, England 2005
"One of the most beautiful cities visited.  A variety of old attractive
buildings.  Wonderful views by the river of both sides of the city. 
Easy reach of magnificent lake, forest and river scenery - great to
explore by bike.  Easy reach of the Airport.  Transport is fine and
most reasonable, also great tram rides.  Eating out excellent and
good variety.  Fascinating cathedral and castle area.  Would definitely
like to go again."                              Meg Moseley, Gloucestershire, England 2005

"The Cottage was peaceful and relaxing to return to after a day exploring the lovely
city of Prague.  Its location gave us the opportunity to see local villages and meet
local people, and was an excellent base for long walks in the beautiful countryside.
After we had been there a short while, it felt like 'home'."
                                                                Judy Roxburgh, Sussex  2006/04

"Prague is a fascinating city, a living museum beautifully preserved
with something of interest in every direction. Art nouveau decorations
are everywhere on even the humblest buildings, and the Czechs
clearly take pride in their heritage. Getting around on public transport
is easy and cheap - about Ł1 a day for unlimited travel...but be
prepared for lots of walking, it's the only way to see the best places.... 
and take some comfy shoes!"                  Martyn Grandy, Manchester, England 2005


We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely house. Children had a wonderful time.
The food in the restaurant in front of the house was excellent, especially the fish.
If you could provide a vacuum cleaner it would help in keeping the carpeted area
clean all the time. Similarly we could not locate a proper mop. {IdyllicPrague These
should always be available.  If you cannot find them, please ask!} 

We would like to come back some time in future and recommend the place to all our friends.
We did find lot of usefull tourist information material in the living room which was a great help.
 Once again thanks for letting us use your house.    Amjad Hussain Pakistan 2009/06 

"Dan was waiting at the airport for us with a board saying Welcome to Ms Roxburgh.
We saw him as soon as we came through into arrivals. He was very friendly and
immediately made me feel at ease and welcome.  His English is excellent and he
explained where the Cottage was and chatted about local things, transport etc
on the way to the Cottage.  When we got to the Cottage he introduced us to
Oxana (the cleaner), showed us round the cottage and again advised us on taxis etc.
He acted as translator for Oxana who didn't appear to have any English.  He rang on
the Friday evening to confirm pick up on Saturday morning, which was reassuring and
was very punctual and again friendly and helpful.  It was a great help to us arriving
in a strange country where we speak none of the language.  He left us his phone
number in case we needed further transport or help which again was very reassuring
as we felt that we had someone we could ring who spoke English if we needed
advice.  Dan also showed us how where the computer was and opened it up to
the www.IdyllicPrague.com website before he left.
Oxana too was very friendly and efficient, we obviously couldn't talk much to her but
she showed us where everything was in the cottage, she came in daily and emptied
the bins etc.  She changed our bed linen and towels half way through the week and
cleaned the bathrooms, sink etc. Also through Dan she told us about the meals at
the local pub, which he had also mentioned.
Work in the road laying a new water pipe made the approach to the Cottage look
a bit bleak just at first. First impression of the Cottage was very nice when we went
into the garden and inside the house.  I think my first thoughts were how big it
was, also that it was very modern and seemed very clean and quite bare.   Its a
lovely house, it perhaps felt a bit lonely and remote the first couple of nights,
although I live in a very quiet place myself.  It was definitely a peaceful haven to
return to after a day in Prague, we enjoyed coming back and having a couple of
quiet hours before we went for dinner.  I enjoyed being able to play the piano in
the Cottage - although my colleagues might not agree!  It was hot enough to enjoy
sitting out on the patio.  It was a bit intimidating knowing none of the language
but having Dan to meet us made this a lot less worrying.
We enjoyed walking up to the shop, apart from the work laying the water pipe it
was very peaceful.  The people in the shop spoke no English but were very eager to
help us.
Having the pub across the road is a big bonus, the food was cheap and very good
with enormous portions.  The English menu was also very helpful, although we still
struggled a bit - we never did find out what "chicken pockets" were!  The staff in the
pub were again kind and eager to help us. 
Dan told us about taxis to and from the city, he gave us the number you
recommended with an English speaking person.  He also said he would take us
but that it would be a bit dearer, I think because of the distance. However we
found the local bus which took us to the metro and this was much cheaper than
the taxi would have been.  Also we enjoyed stopping at the local villages and
watching people get on and off.  I think it might be useful to have more info on
catching the Buses, numbers, times, costs etc in the cottage, its fun and saved a
lot of money.  (IdyllicPrague note - extra bus information added - click here.) 
I didn't realise you had a website until shortly before we left when I went onto it
briefly but having seen it is very useful.  I printed off the walk which was very
helpful so might be useful to have some printed copies of the walk in the house
for people to take with them.
Again many thanks,"                                             Judy Roxburgh, Sussex2006/04


You've obviously gone to a lot of trouble to make your holiday homes wheelchair
accessible - and its great that there are so many details and photos so that people
can see for themselves if the facilities are suitable for them, since, as you no doubt
realise, every case is different.  We greatly appreciated the sturdy ramp at the
entrance to Conifer cottage and the fact that everything was on the same level for her. 
So the changes you've made to Cherry Garden suite look great. 
I think the most useful thing for prospective holidaymakers is that the photos are so clear. 
It's great that so much is being done for handicapped people now. 
Just another thing I've thought of which has nothing to do with the houses,
but with handicapped parking in town - we found out that the designated handicapped
parking spaces in the City are often set aside for a particular car with the number plate
marked under the blue P sign - so we obviously hesitated to park there.  They don't
make that clear in the otherwise excellent guidebook provided by Lucie, so it may be
worth pointing out to people so that they don't get a fine! 
Thanks again for enabling us all to have a lovely holiday in Prague.  I'm currently
compiling a souvenir album of holiday photos for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

We did indeed have a great holiday - all too short, but the calendar is not within any of
our control! I would have loved to have had more time to review your back issues of New
Scientist - about a week maybe.
The house was really excellent - exactly as we expected from your website. There were
only a couple of minor things that could make it better :-
o Hot water. We seemed to have emptied the tank of hot water on our last morning, when
several of us had showers or baths. There may have been a switch we missed to select a
manual top up of heat, but we had no hot water for washing up at lunchtime - easily
overcome with the kettle.    {IdyllicPrague click here}
o Outdoor furniture. Looked like it had spent the winter sheltering indoors, and needed
a quick wipe down before we could use it.     {IdyllicPrague click here}
These were completely overshadowed by the positives - and in particular Dan, who met
and transported us impeccably. He is a big asset to Idyllic / London Prague.
An observation that might be helpful for visitors planning to use the bus. We had a little
trouble finding the bus stop in Prague for the return to Cerny Vul. Perhaps you could note
(either in the house or on the website) that the bus stop is down the hill from the Dejvicka
metro station, on the roundabout itself - separate from the other bus stops. {IdyllicPrague click here and here}
Also we had a little difficulty buying the 150kr tickets that were valid out as far as Cerny Vul -
the Dejvicka kiosk and ticket office were only offering the 100kr tickets valid in Prague itself.
A guide to where they can be bought might be useful. (Actually, the 20kr one way ticket that
you can buy on the bus itself is good value - especially by UK standards.)  {IdyllicPrague click here}

All said, a very good break, and an excellent venue for it.

Very best regards, and good fortune for future business.   Simon Aglionby, London 2008/05

Hi, we had a great holiday.   All I can say is that everything was fine and the contact person
was very pleasant.   Kind regards                                Kelly Dejongh Belgium 2008/04

We have found our stay in Prague very interesting and will definitely come back again sometime
in the future. The Garden Suite has been very suitable and adequate for the 2 of us.
It has made our stay enjoyable and relaxing ( except the walk back up the hill when returning
from off the bus ). Hopefully we may well call on your services again in the future.
Many Thanks for your services and shall speak with you again soon regarding the booking for
our friends in September.     All the best & kind regards  Paul Burt Milton Keynes 2009/03
Just to say thank you ever so much for the stay at your house- . Thanks also for arranging us
to be met at the airport.  We enjoyed it very much and the location was perfect- and if you
know of a plot it that location my husband would love to build a house there!
thanks again                                    Shazia Walker and Family  London    2008/08

Thank you very much indeed for your help with the arrangements for our Prague visit. 
Dan looked after us well in picking us up and returning us to the airport (two different
terminals as you mentioned!) and the car (a Skoda Octavia estate) was perfect for our
needs, a very good price and delivered and collected which made a huge difference.
We very much enjoyed Prague and visited some old haunts although the strength of the
Czech Kr seemed to make things rather more expensive than I remembered!  The Lubkowicz
Palace had reopened since we were last there and that was a really special visit, highly
recommended.   We also went to a concert there.  We particularly appreciated Cesky
Krumlov where we stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the drive down stopping at Konapiste
and Tabor on the way down and Hluboka and Pisec on the way back.  Also did a trip
around the south and  met a family at Holosovice who invited us back to their cottage
for mushroom soup and bilberry cake (all with freshly picked produce from the woods!).

Just back, it was amazing as hoped! We had two beautifully sunny days, glorious, and ended
up on the New Year's Eve jazz cruise, and it was great too, a very high quality jazz quartet,
muted trumped, guitar, bass and drums, very good playing, suitably smooth, nice food and
just amazing views and the fireworks form the best position, it was like a dream.
It has to be the most amazing city in the world!  Superlatives only as you can see....
Parents enjoyed Fledermaus, but the Don Giovanni we saw at the Estates was naff and
not very well sung, but being in that theatre alone made up for it, another wow-experience.
{IdyllicPrague.com recommend Narodni Divadlo and Statni Opera, rather than the Estates Theatre.}
Not that much has changed in 15 years, more familiar shops and glamorous restaurants,
but still the same lovely atmosphere.  Great stuff.  Happy new Year!  Stefan   2008/12

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house. We had a fantastic Christmas together
and the facilities in the house were great. The only thing we found we were short of were tea towels.
Again, thank you,                        Cheers                            Vicky and Col Evans, Australia 2008/12
