Homestead U Brzov

Brzov is our homestead where we have two houses. In one of them we live and the other is our guesthouse that we rent. Our homestead is situated in a quite valley surrounded by meadows and forests. We found out that our place is loved by people who enjoy the country life and by families with children. Our guesthouse offers you the comfort of a city house in the country. Here you can explore the homestead life and its surrounding countryside or relax in this quiet and rural place.


Brzov offers a variety of different activities to explore. The houses are surrounded by beautiful meadows, where most of our animals spend their time grazing. Then there is the forest, ideal for endless walks and down in the valley you can find a small stream. We have games for indoors and outdoors. Outside you can use our fire pit or have fun with your kids on a big trampoline.

You can familiarize yourself with homestead crafts, that we are trying to master ourselves, such as making fresh cheese and quark, weeding the garden, feeding scraps to a pig or baking a healthy bread.

"Brilliant. My family and I have been travelling for seven months now and our time here was probably our favourite."
"We hope to return sometime, and next time for much longer. Thanks so much Jan, Veronika and Timo. You added an extra dimension to our European road trip."

The house is quiet and private and from the living room you can go straight outside on the terrace in the garden. In summer you can spend all days outside. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner on the terrace, around the campfire or barbecue or with the picnic set enjoyed in the meadows.

In winter days or on rainy days you can make a fire in the wood stove which you will probably will enjoy in particular after being outside. After all there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing (as they say in Scandinavia).

And if you do not like the idea of cooking during holidays, you can ask us for our vegetarian cooking friend who can cook for you (and with you).

"We stayed for only two nights with Godard and Veronika, but we wished it could have been longer. This is the most brilliant place for anyone who loves the countryside."
"We hope to return sometime, and next time for much longer. Thanks so much Jan, Veronika and Timo. You added an extra dimension to our European road trip."

Our homestead includes two houses and several small barns. One of the houses is our home and the second one serves as a guest house. On the pictures you can see the house with the "white" roof on the left where we live and the house with the orange roof on the right is the guesthouse. Both houses are oriented away from the yard and therefore have total privacy. The guesthouse has two floors with 4 bedrooms, open kitchen with living room, 2 toilets and one bathroom. You can access a terrace from the living room and the kitchen.

The house is surrounded by meadows, where we have five horses, four donkeys and a pink pig. Around the house you can meet our three dogs and seven cats. Our two border collies really love to play and if you feel like, you can hug our pig .

We prepare for you rooms with fresh sheets, duvets, pillows and a big towel. You can park your car in front of the house. When the road is not in good condition we will bring all your luggage to the house with our tractor or the donkey-car.

In the neighboring village of Kralova, there is a hotel with an indoor swimming pool and sauna. From the local ranch you can make horse rides through the Kralova mountains.

On the other side, 45 minutes up the hill you can find the traditional settlement of Sekier and behind that the Zajezova ecologic center. Nearby are the historical mining cities of Banska Stiavnica and Banska Bystrica. We have an activities guide with the ins and outs of enjoying the country life for you.

"We had a wonderful time staying at Jan and Veronika's country house. The surroundings were beautiful and peaceful. The house was roomy and very comfortable."
"This is the sort of place that we look for when we plan a trip. It's rural and beautiful. Horses, goats, dogs, amazing views, wood burning furnaces, spacious rooms. It's the perfect place to relax."

Star Dome

Mar 13, 2015 / Godard /

It is supposed to be the most efficient way of creating a space. In our case a greenhouse. Made from plastic water tubes and ty-raps. Eazypeazy.

But later we realized that a half tube form would have given us more space. But this stardome looks much better anyway.

Click here is more info about how to make your own stardome.…

This is us
Hi! We are Veronika and Godard and we live here on our homestead with our 3 year old son Timo and our animals. Veronika is mostly into horses and knows a lot about horse behavior and positive horse training. She loves to work with her horses and train them using a klicker. I work as software designer and like to work with wood and our traktor. (I made the beds in the guesthouse). Our shared passion is permaculture gardening. Work together with nature is our keyword in horse management and gardening.
