The SpaceDuring the renovation in 2014, we intended to create a place where everyone will feel relaxed... A warm and cosy house in a traditional style, equipped with everything you really need to have a great time: central heating, WiFi (good speed), dishwasher, freezer, cooking place with oven, washing machine, microwave etc. There is no TV as we believe that the last thing you want to do during your stay is watching TV...
There are 3 individual bedrooms with 2 beds and 1 room upstairs with one king size and one single bed (see the floor plan in the gallery). We have 2 baby cots available (please tell us in advance if you plan to use them).
We have two separate toilets (1 on each floor) and one bathroom equipped with a shower box.
A roof-protected garden seating area is available, it allows you to spend as much time outside as you want, even when it starts to rain. Evening barbecues are especially recommended:)
A little playground just next to it allows your kids to have some fun in the garden, too. Guest AccessThe entire house is accessible for the guests, with private 2 parking places in the garden and 2 on the road in front of the house. Interaction with GuestsWe totally respect guests' privacy, at the same time we are more than ready to advise with trips, places to visit, etc. The NeighborhoodJosefův Důl is a perfect starting point for exploration of the surrounding stunning nature. Jizera mountains are interlaced by signed hiking and cycling paths and during winter there is nearly 200 km of tracks for cross-country skiing (nearest access point to the tracks is 2 kilometres from our cottage).
In summer, there are several possibilities for swimming, it depends if you prefer natural sites or public swimming pools.
It is allowed to swim in Cerna Nisa dam and it is one of the most beautiful places in the Jizera Mountains. A clear no.1 swimming possibility for nature lovers.
There are two public open-air public swimming pools within 20 mins by cars: in Lučany nad Nisou and Bedřichov. Very nice roofed swimming pool with a summer sunbathing garden area is in Liberec.
In the winter, there are possibilities both for downhill and cross-country skiing. For those who prefer downhill skiing, there is a couple of (mostly family-oriented) areas (Severák in Hrabětice, Malinovka in Bedřichov) accessible within a few minutes by car. You can also find a few ski slopes directly in Josefův Důl, the nearest one (Lucifer) is around 1,5 kilometres from from our door. If you are a good skier, Tanvaldský Špičák in Albrechtice is also 5-10 mins by car and if you don't mind to drive for a while, Harrachov with very long and wide ski slopes is just 22 kilometres away.
There is a ski rent in Josefův Důl where you can hire all kinds of sporting equipment including all kinds of skis, snowboards, mountain bikes and sledges..
If you would like to visit Prague, the distance is just 120 km and it won't take you more than 90 mins one way.
