The camping (start year 1997) managed by ourselves is located
in a countryside setting, next to scenic woodland and attached to
an old farmhouse in the serene village of Horejany. It is ideal
countryside for walking, cycling, bird watching, fishing and canoeing.
The area is characterised by the changing landscape of farmland,
villages and woodland.
The Czech Republic is easy to reach from all the major ports and
countries in Europe via the excellent European motorway network.
There are numerous possibilities for trips all within an hour travel time. Prague, the capital, is only 50minutes (70km).
This small camping is spacious (+/- 4 hectares - 40000 sq metres)
and has 36 places mostly available with electricity (4AMH) and for the nature conscious camper there are good places available. The camping terrain is in keeping with the natural surroundings so that it blends in unobtrusively. There are a limited number of places with shadow.
The site has a swimming pool, a friendly cafeteria and facilities for children such as swings and their own hut.

The Czech Republic is twice the size of Holland and a population of 10,5 Million. Significant portions of the population do not have a car however some car owners drive carelessly and it is not unusual for them to drink and drive. A litre of lead free (95) petrol (natural 95) and diesel(nafta) cost you +/- 31 kroons( € 1.20).Overall in the country you can find lead free (95) petrol and diesel (nafta) also in Tochovice. It is also possible to tank LPG (+/- 15 kroons)locally whereas lead free (98) petrol is not readily available.
It is getting more frequently possible to pay for fuel with a bankcard or credit card at petrol stations, also to pay in shops and restaurants.
Eating out is relativily cheap in diverse restaurants. Mostly for just 9 euros per person you can have a decent meal inclusive a drink. Czech cooking is similar to German and Austrian. Goulash for lunch is popular. Plate service is normal and the Czechs are mainly meat eaters with raw vegetables. The restaurant are getting better the last few years and the kitchen more fine.
Lager is of course the favourite drink for the Czechs. The most popular brands are Pilsner Urquell, Budweiser Budvar and Gambrinus. There are several beer types in this country. White beer has a strength of +/- 4% alcohol (10%) to +/- 5,2% alcohol (12%). At the camping we serve several beer types from the old Herold brewery situated next to the castle in nearby Breznice.
Most shopping items (not imported) are relatively cheap. The shops are often open 7 days a week with restricted opening times on Saturday and Sunday. In Tochovice there are several small supermarkets for your daily shopping.

We advise you initially to bring some Czech money with you. At the border the exchange rate is far less than money changed at your home Bank.
You must have a valid passport with you or an European identity card.
Pets must be vaccinated and have an official European passport with proof.

By the border and several petrol stations these vignettes can be purchased. Fines for not having one are severe and expensive.
The Czech (west Slav) is for people a problem.
The English and German languages are generally well
understood in the larger towns but not so in the villages.
By the better bookshops there are diverse pocketbooks
available which are a handy help with the language.
We advise you first to try communicating in English.
The climate is characterised by the change from a coastal
climate of Western Europe and the land climate eastwards.
The temperature in the camping season is on average +/- 25 C.
Due the height above sea level of the camping 500 metres the
sun is stronger in the daytime and nights can be cooler than
expected. If it rains this is mainly short (heavy) showers and at
the camping you can see a spectacular lightening show.
During these showers the wind can increase quite strongly.
Fortunately complete grey and dank days are rare.
There are no camping signs posted along the roads
We wish you a fine holiday. Jelly and Arthur
