Close to nightlife, town square, countryside, river, hiking, shops, galleries, restaurants, bars, town centre, this old forge is located on the border of the tourist and resident. Its unique ambiance, garden and eccentric design of our artist home is anything but sterile. Forget impersonal hotels, come and share our home, filled with art, music and thousands of books.

The space

This is a 200 year old forge, part of which was demolished ages ago, when the main road was being built, house sunk a little and it is now tilting downhill, like tower of Pisa.
Our home is very large, although not appearing so from the road side. It houses three guest bedrooms, habitable photo atelier available for guests, my atelier on the ground floor, which ocassionally doubles up as an artist club and our personal space of 6 bedrooms in the attic.
Blue room is the first on the right from the main door, located in the space, that used to be a kitchen, many years ago.
Windows are large and they are overlooking the School of Arts and the main road.

Guest access

Feel free to explore the garden behind the house, if you happen to have the time.

Interaction with guests

I work full time as a kindergarten teacher and often travel for my theatre shows. I happen to be at home after 5 pm, otherwise you will find my adult children here, who will assist you.

Other things to note

For those expecting hotel services, I stress that I do not run a hotel. There is no 24 reception, no doorman, no breakfast in bed, unless you want to prepare it for me. ;0)
There is no staff to serve you nor servise you, there is myself and my family members, who juggle the day life with guest arrivals. ;0).
This is not a place specifically bought for rental business, but a real home with real home owners living in it.
I will much appreciate your respecting of other guests, of night peace after 10 pm, some guests tend to sleep earlier than others and of course, of respecting privacy.
If you are not sure about something, ask. My number, in case no one is at home, is on the mirror in the entrance hall.
I have had heaters and boilers destroyed due to people turning everything they should not touch, turn on or turn off.
If I have a chance and/or time, I am happy to invite you into my atelier for a cup of coffee, chat or a glass of wine.
Welcome to my world.

This place is amazing and definitely worth the experience! We stayed in the blue room which is quirky and full of art and reading. It had its own toilet and the stylish bathtub. We literally just relaxed in this atmosphere and played some quiet jazz in the evening. The bed linens were so comfy we slept like babies. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful with advice on where to go and eat in Cesky Krumlov. The location is very close to the old town - just a short walk in a residential area so you can park your car just outside it. The house has a very homely and interesting atmosphere - it is covered in paintings and candy :) Very nice touches indeed. Thank you!

This saucy blue room is wonderfully decadent and made our stay in Cesky Krumlov especially memorable. Maty was super helpful and made great restaurant and bar recommendations. The shower is a bit awkward but worth it for the vibe of the place. Tea and coffee facilities are provided in the room; perfect for lounging on the couch with. This personal, interesting place is exactly what Airbnb is for, thank you!

We loved our stay with Maty. Our room was very comfortable and relaxing and the centre was only a short walk away. Maty spent half an hour recommending places to eat and see and they were fantastic. Enjoy your stay in Ceske Krumlov!

I loved spending time there. The house was very “hip” and artistic. I especially enjoyed the interior of the room I stayed in. The host was very kind and answered questions regarding the city. Recommend it, for sure!

The room is definitely an eye cather and very interesting. But as an allergic, I smelled lot of dust which created minor breathing problems. The check-in with Maty was somewhat chaotic but still helpful. Still a nice experience. Try it out

Response from Maty:
Dear Titos, sorry to hear that you are an allergic, perhaps if you would have advised me prior to making a reservation, I would have suggested booking some other place in town. I can not guarantee dust free environment nor do I claim to. I have a plant filled patio, there are trees everywhere around the house, there is a garden, I have butterfly bushes by the windows, there are roads, cars, there is pollen, I have a cat and a dog, and there will be dust. We dust every day, yet there will be dust. I live with it, this an old blacksmith's cottage in a tiny countryside town, not a sterile apartment in a skyscraper. With regard to chaotic check in, you requested early check in, in the morning. I have advised, same as I advise everyone, that check in is after 3 pm, before that, house is cleaned, laundry and bedding changed, and errands are run. I wrote that you can indeed come earlier to at least drop your luggage. You specified time, and then you came at an entirely different time, hours later, expecting me to sit by the main door and wait for you?. I am not a receptionist, Titos. My home is not a hotel. We happen to live our busy lives and I will not spend my weekend indoors waiting until you decide to come at a different hour, than the one we agreed on. You asked if you can park your bikes anywhere, I have given you the access to our only key to the garden, allowing you to park your bikes in our personal space. It appeared as if you were taking it for granted, as if no effort has been made. Chaotic check ins you can avoid in the future, by arriving on time, at the suggested hour the host gives you. It is usually set in mind with cleaning, check outs, work schedules etc. Happy travels.

It's not in the town center but is very easy to get to all tourist attractions on foot( C.K is a small town ) The room is clean and bed is very soft.

Words. I love words, silence and eloquent company, decadent poetry, port wine and cigars, my vintage tophat, paintbrush, theatre and books.

I rarely travel for leisure. I must undertake journeys when performing (I am a theatre actor) or exhibiting paintings out of town/country.
I have recently taken on kindergarten teaching as well, so you will not see me at home until the afternoon, during the school days. Also, if it happens, that I am attending a child while you are trying to call me, I may not be able to answer the phone.
It is always a better bet sending me an SMS, email or a message through airbnb.
I have four children (three of them are adults - musicians, sculptors, designers), one chihuahua with a foot fetish a self-willed cat.
Our home also functions as an art club a few times a year, when we welcome interesting people from the international art scene. Do leave the stress behind and dive into the intimate, easy boudoir atmosphere of the bedrooms.
Come, share it with us and don't forget, that life is full of days..
