"Brilliant. My family and I have been travelling for seven months now and our time here was probably our favourite."Kane October 2014 - the main house
explore nature and enjoy the countryside
Brzov is our homestead where we have three houses. In one of them we live, the other two are our main guesthouse and romantic cottage 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. The cottage is a lovely place for two. Here you can explore 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.
And fix that overgrown garden :)

"We had an amazing staying at Jan`s house! It was way beyond our expectations... We stayed there for 3 nights, the view is incredible, the house is comfy and specious, we had a great time in front of the fireplace.. :)."Yael December 2015 - the main house
"This place is one of the most beautiful places in Slovakia i have ever seen. In the middle of pure nature, far from noisy sounds of the town you can truly turn off your mind and just feel the presence."Barbora, September 2014 - the main house
"Since we have gotten back from our wonderful stay at Jan, Veronika & Timo's place, we are wondering when we can get back to this beautiful, relaxed place in the hills. "Fanny, August 2015 - the cottage
"The weekend we spent at this (literally as the title says) lovely place was amazing. The little and comfy farm house we stayed in was charming and the surroundings made us feel as if we were in a whole different world, with the timid atmosphere and all the animals around us."Katka, February 2016 - the cottage
" This was the best airbnb accommodation so far. Great location, cozy place. Jan and Veronika are very nice and caring hosts. We will definitely come again. "
Mirka, January 2017 - the cottage
"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 houses are 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."Selene, August 2017 - the main house
"You can just sit and relax outside with a morning tea or go hiking in the nearby hills where you find straw bale houses, wooden houses, yurts, teepees, farms and old settlements. "Martin March 2017 - the main house
"We really enjoyed the time during our whole stay. The surrounding is extremely peaceful and quiet, a good place where you can have a really relax life after a long and exhausted journey."
Selene, August 2017 - the main house
"The first word that comes to mine when thinking of Jan and Veronika's lovely homestead is 'idyllic.' What a perfect space to get away from the loud noises and constant interruptions of the city and enjoy the countryside for a couple days."Katy, May 2016 - the cottage
"I use Airbnb all the time, and I can say this was by far the best experience we've ever had. Aside from the stunning beauty, the cozy atmosphere (nothing beats going to sleep with a chimney glowing), the fresh air, and the silence, Jan and Veronika and Timo are just simply wonderful, relaxed, and open people."Sara, May 2016 - the cottage
"All the rave reviews are well deserved! The house is spacious, quiet, and comfortable. Beautiful views, fireplaces, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. And the uninhibited warmth and thoughtfulness of the hosts, so patient with a family like us with two kids. "Dorit, March 2016 - the main house
"Our stay at Brzov was the most amazing time ever. Without doubts one of best holidays we’ve had so far. The peace of the nature, the birds singing in the morning, the loved animals, the comfortable clean house with enough privacy, kitchen, stove and everything you need was an unforgettable experience."Martin, March 2017 - the main house

Our homestead includes four houses and several small barns. One of the houses is our home, the second and thrid one serve as 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 main house. The white roof in front of the main house is the cottage. All houses are oriented away from the yard and therefore have total privacy. The main house 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 cottage is a room with a connected kitchen and a bathroom.
The houses are surrounded by meadows, where we have six horses, one donkey, a goat and a pink pig. Around the house you can meet our three dogs and many cats. Our two border collies have grown old and you'll find them going around and greeting you with a wagging tail.
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.
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.
