We had a great stay in Petra’s Stonehouse in Stranný. The house and the garden are exactly as described and are very charming. The bedrooms are a lot more spacious than the photos may lead you to expect. The kitchen is unusually well equipped. Stranný village is very quiet and really like an oasis of tranquility, where you can spend an excellent holiday and discover everything the Czech Republic has to offer (which is a lot). The text of the “Overview” corresponds to reality and is not exaggerated. Several shops in the village nearby (Neveklov, at about 3 kilometres) offer everything you need for daily shopping and at competitive prices. Gasoline and ATMs are also available in Neveklov. There is no reason to shop farther away in larger supermarkets. From Stranný, it is easy to make trips to various historical towns (Prague, Tabor, Kutna Hora). Petra gave useful advice about the best routes to take. The highways are sometimes (but not always) faster, but not anywhere as scenic as local roads. Right from the front door of the house there are a number of walking trails which are very clearly marked (so that one does not get lost) and the forest and the fields are spectacular. Petra speaks fluently English and was always available for advice, tips and assistance. Highly recommended.
