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...:-)
This place is non-smoking. It has a spacious patio and a beautiful south facing garden where you can enjoy your cigarette.
Shoes off please. Please, remove your shoes when inside. You will find slippers of various sizes to keep your toes warm:-)
We are small pets friendly with no extra charge.
Because every single detail was meticulously restored and mostly built with own wood we would appreciate if no candles and other fire are used inside the building.
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.
