A Modern Getaway: The Joys of Lake Lipno


Welcome to Lake Lipno in Černá v Pošumaví, a picturesque village nestled in the heart of Czechia. Offering a blend of modern comfort and natural beauty, this hidden gem was the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable Airbnb stay. In this blog post, we'll delve into the charm of the area, explore the activities and attractions it offers, and venture into the nearby fairytale-like town of Cesky Krumlov.

Location and Accommodation

Situated along the banks of Lake Lipno, Černá v Pošumaví boasts a serene and idyllic setting. Surrounded by the breathtaking Šumava Mountains, this destination provides a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The location of our Airbnb was actually at the widest part of the lake, making it ideal for any imaginable windsport. Our host, Petr, also owns and operates Camp Jestřábí I, offering an onsite bar and restaurant, camping, boat and equipment rentals, windsurfing and kiteboarding school, including full-blown summer programs!

We had the pleasure of staying in Petr's brand-new modern apartment. With its sleek design and stylish furnishings, the apartment offered a comfortable and contemporary retreat, including all the comforts of home. From state-of-the-art appliances to plush furnishings, every corner has been crafted with your comfort in mind. Its large sliding glass door afforded us a stunning view of the lake and mountains, allowing us to truly immerse ourselves in the natural beauty of the area. On top of all that, smart home technologies such as contactless wristband entry gave us the peace of mind to explore without worrying about losing any keys!

Wellness Escape

Oh, and that's not all! If you're looking for a little relaxation or recovery after a day on the lake, then look no farther! Petr's vacation apartments have their own blissful wellness sanctuary. Your personal spa awaits, enveloping you in rejuvenation - complete with its own endless fitness pool, hot tub, and sauna. We obviously couldn't help but indulge during our visit!

Lake Activities

The clear highlight of the apartment's location is Lake Lipno itself, a sprawling body of water that offers an array of sport activities both around and on the water. From biking and fishing to yachting, sailing, windsurfing, and kiteboarding, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Petr and his team can help you with your adventure of choice - and don't worry about bringing any gear, they've got whatever you need for rent!

Exploring Český Krumlov

Much to our surprise, our apartment was just a short drive from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Český Krumlov. This medieval town is a must-visit destination, enchanting visitors with its narrow cobblestone streets, Renaissance architecture, and the meandering Vltava River that winds through its center.

You can stroll through the historic Old Town, where you'll encounter the impressive Český Krumlov Castle, the second-largest castle complex in Czechia. We were lucky enough to be in town for the Five-Petalled Rose Festival, an annual event that celebrates the town's history (this year was its 770th anniversary!). We got to enjoy endless talent everywhere, from singing and drumming, to fencing and swordfighting, to soapmaking and blacksmithing, around every corner there was something new to experience!

Amidst the cobblestone streets of Old Town, there are also tons of family-owned restaurants and bars for your taste buds and evening relaxation. One of our favorite spots to relax was Flamingo Garden, nestled behind the Babylon Restaurant. This newer establishment offers a wide array of delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including some healthy and handcrafted smoothies. We also enjoyed the perfect latte at Prazirna Ideal Coffee, and can't recommend their friendly (and delicious) service enough!


Our stay at Petr's modern apartment on Lake Lipno in Černá v Pošumaví offered the perfect blend of relaxation and exploration. From the energizing shores of the lake to the enchanting streets of Český Krumlov, this corner of Czechia captivated us with its natural wonders and cultural treasures. Whether your family is seeking outdoor adventures, cultural immersion, or simply a rejuvenating escape, Petr's vacation home and all its local attractions will leave you with memories to cherish for a lifetime.
