The Glade is here!

Aranka is a wild nomad and keeping her in one place for long is a tall order.

After a year in which she enjoyed herself by a magical lake surrounded by rocks and pines, she arrived at a forest glade, which is lovingly embraced by the flowing meanders and bows of a forest stream. The air there abounds in the fragrances of spruce, birch, fir, alder and poplar, which Aranka has chosen as her silent companions in this new place.

Aranka is a lover of taking a sauna, so she has prepared a sparkling pool for her guests here as well, in which they can cool their hot bodies. For her beloved guests, Aranka has also found a wonderful place with a special energy for yoga exercises, meditation, or just dreamy contemplation. A little further on, a pine barrel with a stove awaits, which guests can heat up as they wish and gaze upon the starry sky among the crowns of tall spruces, immersed up to their chins in a pleasant bath long into the night. This place has all you need to forget about the world beyond the forest glade. Just you, a good novel to read, nature and the quiet stillness ...

The new spot Aranka has found is an hour and forty minutes away from Pilsen, two hours from Prague and an hour and fifteen minutes from České Budějovice, just a short distance from Kašperské Hory. Experience a time of harmony, peace and relaxation in the heart of nature with Aranka and hideandseek.

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).

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.


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 Otto is also waiting for you. He will tell you everything about Aranka, what she likes and what she doesn't like. The forest has been a part of Otto’s life since he was a child. He will tell you where the deer go to drink, where mushrooms grow and what type, where his bees go to collect nectar and what kind of honey it will become. Otto is a hunter in the best sense of the word - with a strong relationship with nature and respect for everything that lives in it. So perhaps it will come as no surprise that he is also a conscientious fisherman and a humble beekeeper ... while in the summer he becomes an enthusiastic camper ...

Please arrive at the meeting place in time so that Aranka and Otto won’t be waiting long for you. Check-in is from 3 pm - 4 pm, check-out until 11 am or it can be arranged with Otto individually (+420 724 054 242).
