In the mountains; Among nature; Near water
About 200 meters from the house you will find the Vltava River, a great place to get your feet wet or splash around. However, the water flows quickly so do not leave children unattended in the water. You can hire canoes or rafts on the spot. There is also a simple restaurant where you can enjoy a drink or simple meal (1.50 to 5 euro) by the water.
Looking for a good restaurant in the neighborhood? You can go to Sporthotel Zátoň, just 2 minutes away by car. You can also walk back to Jistebník but keep in mind that it is quite hard on a full stomach as there is a rather steep slope. Within 5-10 minutes you can reach numerous restaurants in the neighborhood.
