Location description from owner
The Bohemia region
Compared to maritime Britain, Prague has more extreme weather patterns and more distinct annual seasons. Summers are pleasantly hot and sunny. Winters are cold with ice and snow. Spring and autumn form shorter more distinct transitions between summer and winter and hence are more readily appreciated.
Perhaps appropriately for a country that was led out of communism by playwright Havel, Prague has more theatres than any city in the world, in spite of its relatively small size.
Two opera houses and the National Theatre, which would be worth visiting merely for their sumptuous interiors and distinguished history, provide world class opera and ballet. Spectacular performances are further enhanced by lavish casts, full orchestras, and extensive stage and lighting crews. This is a delightful contrast to the frugality that has become too common elsewhere.
Operas are often joyously directed as their composers intended, rather than reinterpreted. The Prague origins of the works of Dvorak, Smetana, Janacek and Mozart are particularly venerated.
The notable Rudolfinum Concert Hall boasts performances by many world class musicians and orchestras, and concerts are performed in many delightful venues such as Baroque churches.
Several black light theatres and marionette theatres feature a style of performance unique to Prague. Specialist children's theatres and experimental theatres and international cinemas, often showing films in English, abound.
Major events, such as rock concerts, are often staged. The fame of the Prague Jazz clubs was endorsed by a "Two President Duet". When President Clinton was visiting Prague, he took to the stage for an impromptu jazz saxophone performance with his host, President Havel.
Czech beer is outstanding, and is copiously served in cellars, gardens and pubs of every kind. The wide spectrum of nightlife can be very "Bohemian" in Prague, the capital of Bohemia.
Most styles of international cuisine can be found in Prague restaurants, and dining out can be excellent value, particularly outside Prague. The modest restaurant prices for wine and beer are particularly welcome. Only a few top restaurants are expensive and in general you get what you pay for.
Exploring by bicycle
The house is not on a road, but is on "cycle track 8100". (But do not worry, cars and taxis can drive up to the house!) By request, we will be pleased to provide you with bicycles.
Following a stream flowing down into the Vltava river, cycle track 8100 runs through a delightful forested National Park called "Tyche Udoli" which means "Silent Valley". Inclines are gentle and the track has a reasonable surface, making cycling easy and pleasurable.
On reaching the main Vltava river, cycle tracks continue along both banks of the river. Particularly to be recommended is the chain ferry, which for 15kc will carry you and your bicycle across the river to explore further cycle tracks on the far river bank.
Exploring on foot
The cycle tracks, paths, forests and lakes of the National Park are as popular with ramblers as with cyclists. The tranquil valley and enticing paths lead to intriguing wild life discoveries.
Cerny Vul translates as "Black Bullock". A sign on the cycle path states "Cerny Vul is a site of rich archaeological finds. A Neolithic ceramic bull's head found here gave the village its name."

- Very Good
“Wonderful place to stay, would highly recommend it”
We had a great stay and really enjoyed it. The facilities were good and the house was very clean and tidy
“A lovely place I can't wait to revisit!”
I enjoyed a lovely short break at Conifer cottage using it as a base to explore Prague.The property has a homely feel, was well equipped and has easy access to public transport. I will definitely be returning!
The IdyllicPrague team look forward to welcoming you back to the IdyllicPrague Cottages!
“Lovely property in a quiet area”
Two of us stayed here for a week - the property is in a peaceful scenic area, and ideal for walks and cycle rides (which we borrowed off of the house owners with the help of a local member of staff, Hana). If you get the ferry across the river there are some designated cycle highways along the river which were fun to go along. There are plenty of local amenities too, from a pub just across the road to shops nearby selling wine and beer from the barrel. The house itself definitely met our expectations, being very spacious and well kept, with a lovely garden for sitting outside. We would definitely come back!
“Perfect property for our extended family at our wedding”
We rented the Conifer Cottage for our extended family who was joining us at our intimate wedding in Prague. The property was exactly as we expected. We had visited the location previous to our stay. The property and rooms were very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and the welcome-package had all the necessities for the first morning. I would have liked to have some more kitchen towels for drying the dishes. We had 14 people staying in the cottage, which meant that most rooms had only 2 people (mostly couples). It was comfortable with having that many guests. Some of the rooms were next to a kitchen or a 'common' room and therefore could get a little louder. This should be thought of when having many people who might have different schedules for waking up and going to sleep, our friends and family were quite considerate of the others in the house. The owner provided wonderful customer service. We exchanged many, many emails regarding the properties, as well as much assistance with some wedding preparations from the owner and their Czech helpers. Ben and Hana were both instrumental in making sure that our event went well and that we had only a few hiccups. All of our guests enjoyed their stay while at the Conifer Cottage. We all took advantage of the nearby Detaillo restaurant and other pubs. I would recommend this property for all travelers, no matter the group size. The bus service is convenient to enter the city, although you must watch the schedule and be aware that it can be very very busy around rush hour times. Many guests travelled daily to Prague for sight-seeing and eating. For getting some supplies (groceries and such), a rental car was very helpful. For guests with walking problems, it would be highly recommended to have a rental car. Overall, all guests were happy with their stay in Cerny Vul. People in the village were very nice and tolerant of being overrun with wedding guests for a week.
It is a great privilege and a great responsibility to host a Wedding. We are absolutely delighted that once again a happy couple celebrated the Wedding of their dreams. After 15,000 Holiday Guest Nights in the IdyllicPrague Cottages we still find it wonderful to hear how enjoyable our Guests’ holidays have been, but Weddings are extra special.
