    Additional amenities & feature info
    The original Red House was built in 1943 by Rudolf Pachl, the owner of a chocolate factory in Prague. In 2010, Otto Hofmann, the son of the famous Czech screenplay writer Ota Hofman, completely renovated this beloved house where his father used to do some of his creative work. While the house was thoroughly modernized, Otto kept the layout similar to the original one he knew as a boy. This means that the second story consists in part of a loft which overlooks the living room which contains the TV. (As a boy, Otto used to lie in the loft of the original Red House and watch some of his father’s work on television.) The loft contains a double bed and comfortable reading chair. The second bedroom contains a daybed and can be completely private as it is separated from the loft and the third bed... more

    How to get there
    Airport: Prague international: 30.0 km
    Railway: Ricany: 1.5 km
    The Red House is 35 minutes from Prague Airport and 20 minutes from Prague Centre. We can meet you at Prague Airport and transfer you to the cottage.

    If you do take a taxi, then use either AAA Taxi (telephone 14014) or Profi Taxi, both of which are reliable and honest. If you are driving, follow the signs from Prague Airport to Brno using the highway that circles Prague. Exit on to the D1 heading to Brno then just follow the signs to Ricany.

    Continue straight through two roundabouts. You will pass under a railway bridge, then you must turn right and following the sign for 'Kostelec n C/L'. After 800 meters you will turn left about 60 meters before coming to a traffic light.

    After 200 meters, you will see a 2 story family house on the left and a wooden wall on the right...

Words can not describe how wonderful we found the Red House! Our trip to Prague was the best vacation we've ever taken. Otto and his family were attentive and helpful. We stayed one month and we were sad to leave. The house and enclosed garden were every bit as lovely as the pictures online. We loved the location and the ability to be in the city one day and then recharge with our four kids (age 5-10) for the next day or so at the Red House. The lake and the forest nearby are beautiful and the playground across the street from the Red House (that had basket ball hoops, a small soccer field, ping pong tables, walking track in addition to a playground) made this an ideal house for a get away, especially if you have children. My husband even commented in our first week there that if we hated Prague itself (which of course, we did not) that the vacation would still be amazing! In the end, we loved Prague and the Red House. more
