Otava

Jedno z těch míst, kde voní vzpomínka na prázdniny u babičky, bosé nohy v ranní rose, kouř z nevyhasínajících ohnišť, odřená kolena, spálená ramena, první polibek - čiré štěstí. 

Prázdniny, dětství. Čas který se zastavil opodál a jen tak pokradmu pokukoval a vyčkával. Nakonec nás doběhl, svázal a donutil klopýtat spolu s ním o překot. Ale Otava je cestou proti času, cestou k řece a stavění hrází z kamenů a chytání raků pod vykotlanými kořeny olší na březích. Otava je zastavení ve vzpomínce, závan dávno zapomenutého okamžiku odhodlání k prvnímu polibku - zde jsem ho znova cítil na rtech.

Řeka a pastviny, trnkové keře, horizont a starobylý hrad - možná v něm straší, určitě v něm straší, tak jako kdysi strašilo v každém hradě, na který jsme pomysleli. 

Aranka miluje ořechové dřevo, ale také vůně, a právě podmanivá vůně kvetoucí střemchy, máty, jitrocele, pelyňku a kostivalu ji přivedla na pastviny, jenž připomínají obrazy starých holandských mistrů. Světlo je zde měkké, medové, a i nejmenší lístek na tomto čarokrásném plátně má svoje světlo a stín. Otava je místem pro básníky a snílky kteří upadají do snů s jemným ruměncem ve tvářích.

Reservation conditions

Although Aranka is capable of accommodating up to four lodgers, she is primarily intended for lovers. However, she’ll be more than happy to accommodate a family with three children if they decide to come.

Aranka would like her guests to spend at least two nights with her. Shorter bookings are not possible.

It’s a bit of an annoyance, but we also need your consent to the General Terms and Conditions of hideandseek. They also include the Aranka Code of Ethics and Safety and Technical Rules (Technical Manual).


How to make a reservation

Prices and payment

Aranka costs CZK 4,014 per night from Monday to Friday. The CZK 14 is the price of an oak seedling, which will be planted during your stay at Aranka in a place where the pine trees, which cannot get enough moisture from the soil for their lives, are withering. The price for weekends is a thousand crowns and one oak seedling per night higher. So CZK 5,028. The price of holiday nights (Easter, Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve) is CZK 7,042. The prices include 10% VAT.

In order for your reservation to be deemed confirmed, the payment made by wire transfer must be credited to our bank account no later than three working days after the reservation is made.


Cancellation?

If, after paying for a reservation, you decide that you no longer want to go to Aranka, we won’t be sending the payment back to you, however you can take comfort in the fact that you will be paying for someone who couldn’t afford it on their own (a single mother, student, ...) to stay there.

What you don’t need to bring to Aranka

Aranka has basic equipment and ingredients for your gastronomic pleasure, such as Nepalese salt, cane sugar, Arabic coffee, Sicilian virgin olive oil and Oolong Japanese green tea. The kitchen has a pan, pot, a mocha teapot, a french press coffee maker, a teapot, cups, mugs, wine glasses, sharp knives and butter knives, plates, bowls, a wine opener, a potato peeler, a pasta or salad strainer. Organic cosmetics await you in the bathroom. There is a barbecue grill and a hammock in front of Aranka.

In the fridge you will find wines from Nepraš, Pilsner Urquell beer and olives. You can pay for whatever you eat and drink in cash to our caretaker upon departure.

What else is good to know…

In addition to Aranka with a heated sauna, a fire in the fireplace, fluffy comforters and chilled wine, the caretaker George is also waiting for you. He will tell you everything about Aranka, what she likes, what she doesn't like, but also where you can go for a romantic dinner, from where it’s best to watch the sunset, which spot is closest to the stars, where you can go down the river in a canoe, where you can fish and much more. George is a Renaissance man, so don’t be afraid to ask him about anything if you need something else,

Please arrive at the meeting place on time so that Aranka and George won’t be waiting long for you. Check-in is 3 pm, check-out until 11 am or you can arrange it with George individually (‭+420 603 925 730‬).
