The Chateau Heralec is a true historic gem in the middle of beautiful nature of Vysocina. Stay directly in the beautiful newly renovated chateau, where you can feel the history of ancient times.
Everything was tailored to the chateau concept with great feeling. Many elements come from local workshops and they are true handicraft masterpieces. Whether it is a beautiful collection of hand-made glass from a nearby glass shop, which has its own character, or fabric also woven in Vysocina, which were used for sofas, curtains and other decorations.
The chateau was reconstructed from ruins and re-opened as a hotel in October 2011, and boasts spectacular refinement. Almost everyone wonders over its beauty. During the reconstruction, many unique pieces of art were discovered, from ceiling frescoes hidden beneath the layers of colour, over the original beamed ceilings and floors, to the beautiful tiled stoves.
We should be proud of the new owners of the chateau, for the way they conceived the concept and tried to keep all the historical elements which were found. They managed to combine modern materials with old contemporary remains beautifully. This unique harmony makes of the entire chateau a unique work of art.
The chateau also boasts several rare paintings borrowed from the Vysocina gallery that helped to form the overall concept. These pictures had been photographed by the latest technology and enlarged many times, so the beauty in each one stands out. These large-format prints are used both in rooms and in other common areas of the hotel. You should see that for yourself so you can imagine the beauty.
An extensive chateau park, located behind the chateau gate, is an essential part of the whole area. It forms a kind of barrier between the chateau and the outside world, and you find yourself in the endless oasis of peace and quiet. In the shade of trees centuries-old, naughty squirrels jump and you can watch this splendour from the windows of your chateau room, or just relax in a deckchair in the park or in the relax silencario. Come and rediscover the world, where time becomes a fleeting element.
What is characteristic for the chateau accommodation? First of all, large and airy spaces. Bright colours and high ceilings only enhance the overall impression. Emphasis was placed on the size of the rooms, but mainly on social spaces, where guests can relax undisturbed. The quality of materials and simplicity are the main elements which you will encounter in the chateau.
Individual rooms are located in the north and the south wing on the first floor and each one is unique not only by their names, which is derived from the paintings located in the corridors of rooms, but also by their interiors. In the interior a unique technique was used, where paintings were photographed at high resolution and then enlarged several times. These prints of paintings are tastefully planted in the interior room and according to the predominant colour tones in the image, then all the other elements were fine-tuned.
Small details were not omitted either. Decorating by heralec roses is omnipresent. In the room you will find silver castings adorning the window blinds or depicting cabinet handles.
Rooms are dominated by custom made seating furniture with their own pattern on the upholstery fabric. Again, the Heralec rose motif was used. Curtains are also perfectly in tune. From the window you can watch squirrels jumping in the beautifully maintained chateau park.
Another dominant feature is high beds with the dimensions of 200x220 cm. It is really sleeping in king style with larger than normal quality down duvets.
Everything was done so a guest is surrounded by luxury and so realize at every step that this is not only about accommodation, but that each guest is treated with an above-standard approach, and they are provided with exclusive services. Most of them are included directly in the price.
The entire southern wing of the ground floor was dedicated to wellness and a relaxation zone where you forget that time around you still runs. Everything here shines with novelty and pleasant gloom will make you forget about the concerns of everyday life. Do not forget to enjoy one of the very nice professional massages.
A rarity is the possibility of renting a Mercedes E-type with a retractable roof. You pay a mileage only, rent is already included in price. The staff will be pleased to pack a picnic basket for you. Then you can open the roof, depress the gas and go explore the beautiful surrounding countryside with a ride along winding roads lined with trees.
The hotel offers numerous additional services and activities according to your most secret dreams and wishes that can come true here. Fly by a helicopter or balloon, go fishing or hunting, take a horseback ride or build an igloo. Can you think of anything else? Your wish will certainly be fulfilled.
There are great opportunities for all seasons. Take a hike or bike or in the winter on skis or skates. Natural swimming options are also located nearby. The picturesque towns with ruins and castles are perfect for exploration.
All the interiors have retained generous spaciousness and airiness. There are only 19 rooms, but they are wide. They are located on the first floor in two wings. The north wing has a unique relaxation area with a few couches upholstered in a beautiful fabric with typical decor, fireplace and library. Ideal for cool autumn evenings.
In the middle of the building there are two lounges, one is a pink for ladies and beside that is a men's smoking one. Both have comfortable seating and access to the terrace.
They are also complemented by the consecrated chapel on the first floor and a hall for social events.
The entire southern wing on the ground floor is occupied by a wellness and relaxation centre. It offers Finnish, Swedish and Turkish sauna, swimming pool directly below the magnificent historical arches, a Jacuzzi in the tower, a gym with modern equipment and silencarium - relaxation area with deck chairs overlooking the garden. It is very pleasant to lie there, covered with a blanket and read one of the series of books available here.
In the northern wing there is a restaurant with genuine gourmet specialties. Emphasis is placed on the selection of the freshest local ingredients and it reflects in the quality of the prepared meals. Notice the difference at breakfast, when you find it tastes a little different and much better than you are used elsewhere. The chef's work is also his hobby and this is reflected in his performance. Live sturgeons can be seen in the lake in front of the castle, where they spend their last couple of days or hours, before a special dish is prepared from them.
For golf lovers, a professional golf simulator was built, where they can also practice their shots in the off-season time.
The courtyard is a space for holding social events and the hotel has all facilities for holding concerts, parties and banquets.
A beautiful park full of century-old trees surrounds the castle. The park was revitalised and offers a beautiful place with benches and chairs to invite rest.
My personal impression is very strong. Now I dare say that the Chateau Heralec is among the best in the Czech Republic and one of the best hotels ever.
It is the harmonious combination of the beautiful chateau, which was transformed into a hotel, the history and the grandeur that you can feel there. The chateau park only enhances this impression.
They really appreciate their guests, so the ladies definitely will be pleasantly surprised by the attention in the form of the local Heralec rose which you will receive upon arrival.
If you are able to see the documentary about the reconstruction of the chateau, you will understand how many nerves, how much sweat, effort and hard work all this entailed, then the wonderful jewel named Chateau Heralec arose. They certainly have much to be proud of and everyone who comes here will certainly take home an unforgettable experience.
