Property description

The farm is 45 minutes from Brno Airport. It is secluded at the end of the road and so is quiet with no passing traffic. It sits in a commanding position on the side of a hill overlooking the village of Vrtezir. The main house has 4 bedrooms, a modern kitchen with an open dining room and living room. There is 1 bathroom and 2 separate WC's. Behind the farm house is a horse shoe arrangement of barns and stables with a small cottage attached separated by a 6ft fence for privacy. The farm is fully accredited as a Bio farm. It is surrounded by orchards of Apple, Pear, Plum and Cherry all of which give a supply of fresh fruit during the season. Cider is made on the property along with elderflower champagne. There are also horses for hire for riding upon request. The next door farm has a small herd of cows and is otherwise all arable.
Keppler farm is renovated and was acquired in 2010 by a young Englishman from London.
All bed linens and towels are provided. There is a final laundry/cleaning charge of Eu50 at the end of stay in addition to the rental price.

This area of the Czech Highlands is very beautiful. Vrtezir is 1 mile from the village of Stepanov nad Svratkou which has a pub/hotel, a post office, supermarket, pharmacy and a general store. For comprehensive shopping Bystrice nad Pernstejnem is 5 miles away and has banks and everything that you need.
Pernstejnem Castle in Nedvedice is about 4 miles distant and is well worth a day trip, Horse riding is available at the farm and fishing is available in the river in the valley by pre arrangement.
The town of Jhilava is 40 minutes distant and is an old walled city and well worth a visit with its medieval buildings and a pleasant zoo. Zdar nad Sazavou is 25 minutes distant with its Unesco Santini Church and Kinsky Castle. 40 minutes in the opposite direction is the city of Brno which has a myriad of attractions. Prague is a 2 hr drive to the North, and Vienna a 2.5hr drive to the South
Both Nedvedice and Bystrice have a good railway service with trains to Bro central then to Vienna and Zdar/Prague. Brno has an airport served by Ryan Air and by Whizz Air to London Luton and Stansted and Einhoven in the Netherlands
Bystrice has a large modern open air swimming pool complex along with tennis courts etc.
The tennis court in the village is clay and can be used at any time.
A car is a must and the property is not wheelchair friendly.
