About Andrew Philips
Warm greetings from the Philips family. We're so excited you are taking a look at 'Peace of Eden' and very much hope you will come and enjoy a holiday in our Czech holiday haven. We call it our “Secret Garden”, nestling at the heart of Europe in the Czesky Raj (Czech Paradise). We'd love to share it with you. We live near Studham, not far from London, in the United Kingdom. Andrew is a construction Project Manager who runs his own business and specialises in commercial office interior fit-out and refurbishment projects; Linda is a specialist Speech and Language Therapist who works with individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorders; our daughters are Ashlea - studying at University and Shannen, still at school. Linda and Andrew grew up in Durban and Cape Town in South Africa where we went to school and university before emigrating to live in England where Ashlea and Shannen were born. We're adventurers at heart who love the outdoors. We thrive on discovering and exploring new places. We thoroughly enjoy the challenge of overcoming foreign languages, meeting new people and making new friends. Despite the unfamiliarity of the Czech language, we've discovered that we can achieve anything with sign language and a willingness to have-a-go. We laugh loads and have had many memorable experiences in our Garden of Eden. We've discovered the truth of the saying that 'the best part of memories is making them'. We hope you'll visit Eden and discover that for yourselves.

Why Andrew Philips chose Karlovice
We found and fell in love with the Czech Paradise in 2007. Having grown up with the wild, open spaces of Africa, we were delighted to discover this little known, adventure wonderland that offers a magical escape 'far from the madding crowds' of the UK. Within 1 hour drive to Prague, one of Europe's most beautiful capital cities, and only 1½ hours from Prague International Airport (Vaclav Havel Airport), Peace of Eden is easy to get to. It is only a two hour flight from London Stansted and door-to-door, we can get to our cottage more quickly than Devon and Cornwall in the UK. And the mystical forests, rolling hills and fascinating 'rock towns' have kept us enthralled through many holiday adventures. It still amazes us that, while Prague is such a well known holiday destination, so few Tourist visitors have ventured out into the 'wilds' of the Czech countryside. The region is authentic Czech. This is a rare opportunity for seclusion in overwhelmingly crowded Europe. The history of the region is fascinating too. The Czech Republic - recently rebadged Czechia - as it exists today was formed in 1993 after separation from Slovakia having together previously formed Czechoslovakia. Only a few years earlier, this area was inaccessible to Westerners, locked away behind the Iron Curtain under Communist rule. And Peace of Eden makes the perfect base from which to discover and explore this amazing holiday destination. Whether looking for an adventure or desperate for a rest, Peace of Eden is a great place to satisfy your holiday dreams.
