“Marvellous house, great view and surroundings”
We stayed a week at this beautiful place with a group of 13 adults and a toddler. We really enjoyed it. The house is
really spacious and well equipped. The fireplace and barbeque, the sauna and the rooms where lovely. The view over
the lake (even from inside the sauna) was great and the landscape is beautiful, too.
Despite having some issues with the booking platform everything worked out fine. The hosting family was very helpful
and accommodating - both in person on site and especially before our stay via email.

“Summer villa in Lipno nad Vltavou”
Villa Victoria is an ideal summer rental in Lipno, about 15 minutes walk from the restaurants and shops (although uphill
so car needed for elderly & young to get home sometimes). This has the advantage of being away from the noise of
the town and with quick access to the woods for walking and running.
The house itself is very large and well equipped although only 2 upstairs toilets for 6 bedrooms.
It would benefit from air conditioning as we were there in the August heat (reaching mid-30s c) which made sleeping
impossible without purchasing fans (not supplied with the property).
The accommodation is well kitted out, especially the kitchen (including children's crockery & cutlery) and lounge (lots
of DVDs and some children's toys) but some of the furniture is getting a bit old/worn - to be expected I guess.
Warning! We rented the apartment also and this came with a washing machine which wouldn't have been available if
we'd only rented the main house.
There is lots to do in Lipno by the lake for families (boats, hire bikes, playgrounds, chair lift to tree top walk, bobsleigh
etc.) and several supermarkets so the town is a perfect location for families.
Overall we would definitely recommend this to families and large groups looking for a summer vacation villa near the

Villa Victoria ist wirklich königlich
Diese Ferienunterkunft ist wirklich eine Villa! Hoch erhoben am Berg thront sie über dem See, mit einem fantastischen
Ausblick. Der Garten ist atemberaubend groß und lädt zu vielen Aktivitäten ein. Trotz der erhabenen und Stellung
über Lipno nad Vlatavou sind es nur wenige Gehminuten hinunter zum Centrum und zur Marina, wo sich alle
Freizeitmöglichkeiten und Restaurants befinden. Aber auch für Selbstversorger bietet die Villa jeglichen Comfort! Die
Küche ist nehr als gut ausgestattet...es wurde wirklich an alles gedacht - auch an die Kleinsten! die übrige Austattung
der Villa ist sehr detailverliebt, persönlich und familiär. Ein Ort, an dem man die Seele baumeln lassen und einfach nur
genießen kann. Alles war sehr sauber und im besten Zustand; die Bäder sehr großzügig und luxuriös! Die Eigentümer
leben zwar in England, dennoch ist die Betreuung vor Ort bestens gewährleistet. Wir wurden vom Hausverwalter sehr
herzlich empfangen. Insgesamt war das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis sehr stimmig. Auch der Ort und die Umgebung
bieten zahlreiche Möglichkeiten für jung und alt an. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen und die herrschaftliche,
gemütliche und großzügige Villa Victoria den allerbesten Freunden empfehlen!

“À Nice big family house”
We were a large family skiing and stayed in a nice luxury Villa Victoria. Large and spacious house a beautiful large
enclosed graden which is fine for kids and dogs. If there is enough snow you can ski between the trees to the ski
slopes and back to the house. It is a nice area and highly recommended,we will certainly go back. Vicky the owner was
very helpful and if there was anything you could contact her.

“beautifull autumn week”
If you think Lipno is only worth visiting during summer or winter you are wrong. Our family had a great week during the
second half of October. We did so many outdoor activities like, sailing the Lipno lake, visiting the ancient city of Cesky
Krumlov, we played golf, we used the bobsleigh track and we walked the tree top which gave us spectacular views of
the Lipno environment. And the steaks we had at H&M;'s restaurant were the best we ever had. These things
combined with great wheather and a very spacious and comfortable house gave us an awesome week at Villa Victoria

Villa Victoria - great holiday
Helpful votes: One week with friends at Lipno lake in Villa Victoria. There were gorgeous holiday. Modern (but not
luxury) inventory, big kitchen, dinning area and a sauna are only some benefits of the house. The photos on the
homepage correspond to the reality, but some photos more would also be good. House and environment was clean
and well-maintained. The restaurants at the main road quite tasty. And the lake is 5 - 10 minutes away from villa.
There are a lot of good possibilities for sports, e.g. sailing, mountainbiking, hiking or tennis. The supermarket in Lipno
is expensive, but the supermarket in Vyssi Brod, only 10 kilometres away from lipno nad vltavou, is much cheaper. A
sightseeingtour to Cesky Krumlov, Ceske Budejovice or Linz is not so easy without car. All in all it was a great week
and a wonderful holiday.

Proper and clean. The house keeper is indeed very friendly and helpful. Kitchen is fully equipped with all possible
facilities. Rooms are really spacious, so it's no problem to bring cot beds for babies. Surroundings are very quiet,
nearby the forrest is situated where you can find lots of mushrooms, blueberries and cranberries. The village is only a
ten minutes walk away. From here you can start for a large variety of activities. Possibility to rent bycicles and
children's seats or scooters, inline skates, boates a.s.o. Euro is accepted in all shops and restaurants, however mostly
you'll get Chech Crowns in return. Restaurants and shops are in walking distance from the lake. A collection of
brochures and maps is provided in the house, so it's easy to find out what to do and where to go during your holidays.
We all would recommend this holiday home to our friends as well as come back for a next holiday.

We were pleased to spend a week in June at the apartment at Villa Victoria. Everything in the apartment was clean,
and in excellent order. We were able to walk to the lake, the top of the chairlift and explore the forest around the
village. We appreciated having some cable TV in English, great after so many days of no English on our travels. The
outdoor terrace was enjoyable, being able to sit out in the sun. WiFi Connection much appreciated. The owners's
representatives were very kind and professional.

holidays in Czech Rep in Villa Victoria
Beautifull Villa, proper and clean en very well-maintained. Many large rooms. Safe parking for three cars. Beautifull
view on Lipno Lake. Children love to play in the garden. Theowners (and 'mum) provide an excellent customer service.
Very correct, aspecial the final reckoning. The facilities in this time of year in the village are modest. The service in the
village also, incluse the restaurants. Very little people speak something else than czechish lanquage.However Czeske
Krumlov is beautifull. I surely recommend Villa Victoria to our friends,

Great house to spend your holiday with your friends
Spacious dining area and living room. You can eat and spend time together. Kitchen equipment great. Garden and
terrace definetely are a plus: nice view, nicely kept. Bring sunbeds. High quality equipment: whirlpool, big bathrooms,
all new, big rooms with lots of storage. Only one small negative point: when all rooms occupied, toilets/bathrooms are
not optimally dispatched. Very nice tourist area, lots of outdoor activities around the lake possible: hiking, cycling
(routes perfectly indicated), boat tours on the lake, rafting, swimming in the lake (in the summer). For rainy days we
highly recommend the aquapark in Frymburk (spa, massages, ...)

Excellent Choice - best holiday EVER !!!
Honestly can't think of enough GOOD things to say about our stay here. We were a large party varying in ages from 5
to 55 and we booked the whole house for February Half Term. The owners were wonderful and went out of their way to
make sure we had everything we needed, such as travel details, car hire, skiing bookings etc. The house is
FANTASTICALLY SPACIOUS, LUXURIOUS and PRACTICAL with AMAZING VIEWS of the LAKE. The bedrooms and
bathrooms are huge, (all the bedrooms are of equal size and the beds are very comfortable), the living room and
kitchen are enormous and very well equipped, with a wonderful central fireplace, and a dinning table that we could all
sit round. The house is SUPER CLEAN and with everything being newly fitted quiet frankly GORGEOUS!!. The
SITUATION is PERFECT. The ski slopes, lake, swimming pool, shops, woodland walks, restaurants and bars can all be
reached easily on foot within 10 minuets. The skiing is good and cheap and the instructors are excellent with both
adults and kids. The food is good and great value for money. Further afield we visited the UNESCO World Heritage
site Cesky Krumlov which is truly amazing and well worth a visit. We can honestly Highly Recommend a stay here its
both LUXURIOUS and Practical and CAN'T WAIT until our next visit!!! Thank You...
