About Ian Salter

We were married February this year and decided to make a fresh start together in this fantastic area of the Czech Republic. I have an engineering background and Kim has a been a foster carer and health care worker for the last 20+ years so we are new at this! However we cannot believe our fortune as we both love this area and are both very keen photographers and there is LOTS to photograph. We aim to give first class customer service, we want you to come back please!

Ian Salter purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Ian Salter chose Czechia

Kims brother moved to the area to live with his partner who is a Czech girl. Every time we visited them we noticed this property and to our amazement we found it was for sale.

We thought about our lives in detail and decided to go for it and sell up everything! It was a fantastic decision.

What makes this cabin unique

Come and ennjoy the cleanest air in the Czech republic.

Get away from the city life and relax in these beautiful surroundings.

Enjoy beautiful lakes, forests and mountains.

Witness spectacular Sunrise and Sunsets.

Visit castles, monuments, museums, water parks, or enjoy a really relaxing barbeque in our beautiful gardens

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend break March 2015. Cabins are really cosy and superbly decorated and maintained, everything you need is in them. Kim and Ian are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them to make your stay perfect. We even had a bbq round the campfire despite being early in the year (got a bit nippy towards end of evening) I am going back in July this year to visit in the sunshine, lots of lovely cities to explore nearby. The list is endless....

We stayed here for long weekend break in March this year, absolutely beautiful place. Cabins are lovely, beautifully decorated and have everything you need in them. We even had a barbecue around the camp fire, a bit chilly as was early in the year Kim and Ian are superb hosts and extremely helpful in showing us the area. Lovely restaurant in the village. Can't wait to go back in July this year.

Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Took my wife and four children to Hideaway for two weeks and stayed in two log cabins, the children had one cabin and we had a cabin all to our selfs.They were beautify made up and didn't want for anything. Really clean. Loved the shower. Kim and Ian are English owners of hideaway which made a great diference in seeing and finding the local surroundings. We had camp fires most evenings/ Barbecue and enjoyed there wonderful hospitality. Done a lot of walking/ cycling and fishing and took some great pics. Recommend Hideaway to anyone who is wanting that getaway camping holiday. I have already booked for next year. Big thank you Kim And Ian for for being making us feel really special.

Perfekter Ort für eine echte Auszeit

  • 4 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder) waren eine Woche zu Gast bei Kim und Ian. Es war eine wunderbare Woche, die wir dank unserer Gasteltern, dank der Umgebung und dank des Wetters hatten. Das Gelände liegt mitten in der Natur umringt von viel Wasser. Ob Spaziergang, Baden, Relaxen - alles ist möglich. Wenn man mal nicht weiß wie und wo, dann sind Kim und Ian immer mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle. Wir waren zuerst skeptisch das Grundstück mit den Eigentümern teilen zu müssen - sie waren da,aber eigentlich waren sie nie da. Eher wie ein kleiner netter Geist, den man rufen konnte, wenn Hilfe nötig war. Die Bungalows sind einfach eingerichtet. Die Betten, die wir hatten, waren ziemlich weich, sollen aber nächstes Jahr ausgetauscht werden. Auch verirrten sich immer wieder mal kleinere Krabbeltierchen ins Haus, was uns aber nicht störte, da wir eh nur zum Schlafen drin waren. Alles andere kann man im Garten machen - Essen, Trinken, Grillen, Lagerfeuer. Die Wege zur Badestelle, Bäcker, Restaurant sind kurz und eigentlich ist alles zu Fuß erreichbar. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und werden sicher wieder kommen.

Thank you Kim, thank you Ian - see you next time.

We are surrounded by a large dammed reservoir, forest and mountains. Local villages and attractions include an ancient monastry, churches, hotels, a white water rafting and conoeing center used for European competitions, several large dams in superb settings. (Great for artists and photographers). There are designated cycle and hiking routes on the doorstep. Carp and other fish may be fished in the lake at the bottom of our gardens by local permit. Swimming is available in the lake or in our small 3.6, heated pool. We also provide a dingy if you fancy a ride on the lake.

There are many grocery shops in the local village with larger shops a short drive away. Prague is only a 1 hour drive.

We are a small familly business and pride ourselves on looking after our customers.
