The Space"My home is my castle" … the functionalist loft that we offer exclusively only to Airbnb guests, with unique views onto Český Krumlov, just a 10 minutes' walk from the Renaissance old town. You will definitely appreciate the quiet and peaceful location for your stay for a short or even longer holiday period. You'll feel at home here, and you can let it serve as a home base as you discover the sights of our town and its surroundings. You'll be glad to return here after a day of sightseeing, and you'll feel comfortable here. It would also be a good place for working, if your work is an essential part of your life even during your travels to discover the world ....
Here you can sit back and think with no car noise to disturb your sleep and thoughts. If you spend a longer time here, you can still take care of your most urgent work duties if your travel also includes work, or you can get a good sleep first after your long journey. Or you can start writing books, your memoirs, your travelogue, or your resume :) or just take the time to change your environment and try to re-evaluate yourself, maybe you will find new friends, get new ideas, and have your living space and your office here for a time :)
There's an Internet connection and desk for you here free of charge.
You can accomplish all your work calls and e-mails from your laptop or smartphone, then quickly go out to discover our beautiful town. Go for a coffee or a beer, or a good concert, or discover the beauty of the Český Krumlov castle and its interiors, watch the squirrels in the castle garden, visit the Baroque Theater and wander the streets of our Renaissance town, admire and marvel at the beauty of the facades and masterful architectural skill of their authors, explore the courtyards, visit the castle tower and soar over the rooftops and beautiful nature, check out the great regional museum (not only when it rains), or visit the place where Egon Schiele lived and worked, or take a hike up to our beloved mountain Kleť :) and there you can enjoy a wonderful ginger ale!
Or, you can rent a bicycle or a canoe and float down the VltavaRiver, or in the winter you can go skiing just for the day at Sternstein or Kramolín, or walk along the Treetop trail above the trees at Lipno, or when it's hot, swim in the Vltava River or Lake Lipno.
I'll be glad to recommend the best of what you can experience here, what to see, where to go, what to taste, and what's happening here while you're here...
It's only 10 minutes of walking from my loft down to the old town, so you definitely won't need a car. You can park your car or motorcycle for free next to the house, or if your car is fully loaded, or if you're carrying your bicycle with you and you don't want to empty your car, for a small fee you can park it in the safe and locked garage right in the house.
If you feel tired after a day full of of sightseeing and you don't want to walk back up, you can take a taxi back home for ca. CZK 60-100 = EUR 3-4 (depending on where you get on).
This is how much it costs from the bus station back to the house.
But if I'm at home at the moment and have the time, or if we arrange it in advance, then I can pick you up too...
BREAKFAST IS INCLUDED !
We will prepare breakfast for you, ( inkl. good czech bread but also toast) everything will be ready in the refrigerator and it will be entirely up to you and the weather if you'll have breakfast in the kitchen loft or outside on the terrace and at what time, you can even have breakfast at noon :)
If there are two of you, and you're a young couple or married, maybe my 150 square meter loft might seem a bit too big.... but then you can choose which bed and which floor you like better, and maybe just see how it is for two nights to stay and live in a unique functionalist glass loft with a breathtaking view of the town and castle... But all the time, even at night !
You'll wake up in the morning with a views onto Český Krumlov, then again in the evening with a view of the illuminated town skyline and castle, you'll fall sleep.
Given its size (and also even the price per person per night, including breakfast) the loft is ideal for 4-5 member families or a group of four to five good friends who love to travel together. We can accommodate a maximum of 7 guests: for the 6th and 7th guest we provide a comfortable classic mattress that we place put on a woolen carpet (for your children, for example).
Even from the mattresses, you'll have a nice view of the town!
Maybe your children won't want to go into town with you, but we've kept our kids' younger toys, so even yours will be able to brush Barbie's hair and dress her up, or build with Bionicle, or make buildings, cars and houses from Lego or with wooden Railway BRIO and we also have a fully equipped child's kitchen and various board games.
We've got even a small dog Boston Terrier (which doesn´t live in your loft but is living with us) but if you would rather not meet him, or if you are allergic to dogs, then you don't even have to meet him, and he won't bother you! Even though he will certainly be curious about you, but if you're not, we'll respect your wishes and certainly won't organize a mutual encounter :/
But if you love dogs, I'm sure it will be a wonderful introduction between you and our very temperamental pooch.
If you have more questions, write us, follow our gallery on Airbnb as well, since we're constantly improving something, taking pictures of the wonderful views as well, even in all kinds of weather, and updating our photo gallery.
We look forward to meeting you here in Český Krumlov and already wish you a pleasant journey!

Interaction with GuestsI'm also partially available to guests during their stay, and I'll provide all information about the town and its surroundings, give advice, provide maps, charts, information leaflets, and help with phone or internet reservations anywhere. For a fee, I can also offer the service of a genuine and excellent guide to the town, arrange transfer to the station or airport, etc. I speak German, English, and Slovak, but I can speak basic Russian and Bulgarian, and I look forward to being able to brush up on my forgotten high school French :) The NeighborhoodA spectacular view, quiet, close to town, nature in the surrounding area, the historic center, the castle and the castle gardens, museums, monasteries and even the old photographic studio, a wide range of cultural experiences, the town park, our beautiful Vltava River, rental boats, canoes, and bicycles, horseback riding, hiking up to and around Kleť,and if you're arriving by car and for a longer time, I'll make recommendations on what needs to be seen in our South Bohemian region full of castles, and I can also recommend even more if you continue on your way to Prague. Getting Around10 minutes of comfortable walking to the old town square or to the bus station, where there are also taxis, or by agreement and as per time availability, picking up guests from bus station ( 100 CZK = 4 EUR) or rail station (150 CZK = 6 EUR) in Český Krumlov is also possible... Other Things to NoteThe loft is not wheelchair accessible, it has exterior and interior (spiral) stairs. The loft is unfortunately not appropriate for wheelchair-bound or people with walking problems.
Hot water boiler, which is available only for accommodatied guests in the loft operates from 6.00 to 22.00 hrs continuously and during this time the hot water is constantly added. Even after 22.00 is in the tank with 120 liters of hot water enough to take a shower in the night. We kindly please you for understanding that if you decide as a group of 6-7 adults to take a shower between 22.00 - 06.00 hours so it is quite possible that 120 l of hot water will be not enough for you :( I also recommend that you consider when you want to book the loft for 7 adults and not as family with kids, wheather will be one bathroom adequate for you ...
