The building is a dominant structure of Libechov in the picturesque region of Kokorin, 8km from Melnik and a mere 30 minutes drive from Prague. The Kokorin valley is a favoured destination for Prague’s citizens and artists, especially because of its temperate and healthy climate, a rich historical background, overwhelming sandstone cliffs, romantic cycle routes and tour paths.
The hotel is a reconstructed 1930s villa, built in art deco style by architect Josef Lauerman. Factory owner Mou?ka of Prague, who had it built for his wife, commissioned it. It was confiscated by the Wehrmacht during the second World War, returned to its owners following the war’s end, only to be confiscated again by the communist regime in 1948. It was returned to the descendants of the initial owner in the restitution of 2002. In the meantime, the villa served as Prague’s training centre and as an educational facility. The reconstruction of the villa preserved the architectural art deco style both in the interior and exterior, as the oak parquets, wooden balustrades, stucco ceilings, forged metal railings and a marble fireplace command respect for olden craftsmanship.
Wedding ceremonies, both civil and church (protestant) take place outside in the garden or inside at residence halls. Dates on request.
