Other things to note

It probably behoves to mention shortly about the history of our water mill.

It is more than 400 years old, never went up in flames and has been preserved almost intact untill these days which is quite rare. In the middle of the 17th century, it was purchased from the Hradek County Demesne and became private. There were several owners before this estate was bought by my great, great, grandfather in the late 19th century and since this time it has become Zitta family heritage. During the previous regime, the building was confiscated, nationalized and gradually fell into disrepair. After the Velvet Revolution Communists left, my father restituted the run down building (birch trees were growing inside, cavings in ceilings and roof collapse etc.) and decided to go through a quite long and hard reconstruction while lumbering wood out of his forrest in order to save the water-mill. Thanks this constructive approach of the investor, he managed to maintain it and adopted the Zitta water mill for a new use which you are welcome to enjoy.

Now you have the opportunity to be our first guests and observe the miller's industry, which used to belong to the most respected trades.

Likewise, you can enjoy sleeping on the tiled stove made by sheep fur while overlooking the impressive and largest mill wheel in Central Bohemia.

You are invited to travel in time to the days of our ancestors and enjoy the time here while being pampered by mill servants – miller´s assistants, miller´s wife...:-)

The water mill is just as beautiful as it looks in the photographs and was a truly special place to stay. Michaela and her family made us feel very welcome and Michaela went out of her way to help with any little queries we had. We were able to walk across country to a great restaurant in a nearby village and also enjoyed the bakery, coffee shop and bar/ restaurant in Mnichovice itself. We would highly recommend this property for both exploring the local area and also for the ease with which you can also visit Prague. We loved it!

Michaela and her family were the perfect hosts. They were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The house itself was amazing and the photos on the listing do not do it justice. My family, my sister's family and my parents stayed in two of the three apartments for a fortnight and there was ample space for us all (6 adults and 5 children). Communication before our arrival and during our stay was excellent and Michaela responded straight away to any questions. She suggested some brilliant places to visit and helped us to make the most of our holiday. Visits to Prague, Kutna Hora and rafting near Cesky Sternberk were highlights for us. A memorable holiday in a beautiful house with great places to visit nearby. Thanks Michaela and family, we would love to visit again some day.

I have been travelling with my boyfriend around the USA and Europe using Airbnb and find the concept great. Likewise, we enjoy meeting new people and have met interesting people, and had interesting conversations and experiences while using Airbnb. After several years abroad we decided to settle down in our home country and support the idea of my father, the owner of the water mill, to open our own B & B and to start using Airbnb as hosts.
We like to interact with our guests and make them feel comfortable, like at home. We also do understand that people like their own space and in this respect we adapt to our guests needs.
