Alan Rogers Review
Only 2.5 km. from the E50 motorway, this well maintained site creates a peaceful, friendly base enjoyed by families. It has been family owned for 21 years. Surrounded by delightful countryside, it is possible to visit Prague even though it is about 28 km. to the city centre. The site is well grassed and most of the pitches are on level ground to one side of the pool. The other part of the site is on sloping ground and more suitable for tents. Most of the pitches are in the open and not explicitly marked. However this does not appear to cause overcrowding and there is plenty of space. Electricity (10A) is available to all. Some places have pleasant views of the sunbathing area in front of the pool with a pine forested hillock as a backdrop.
The 20 x 60 metre pool is fed by a river and better classified as a lake with concrete sides, access steps and a water chute but the water is filtered, clean and clear. Very small dinghies, air beds and large rubber rings can be used in the ‘lake’ allowing children to really enjoy themselves. To visit Prague, it is best to use public transport and at Zlicin, a ten minute drive from the site, there is a ‘park and ride’ with guarded car parks costing 20p per day (no height restriction, arrive before 09.00). This is also the start of the ‘B’ metro line transporting one rapidly to Mustek, the heart of the city and the main sights (return fare 50p! – tickets can be bought in advance from reception). On leaving the car park to return, there is a large shopping centre including a Tesco superstore!
The single extremely well maintained toilet block has limited numbers of toilets and showers, but during our visit in high season coped well. Small shop with fresh rolls daily. Waiter service restaurant with terrace has an extensive menu. Communal grill on the terrace. Natural swimming pool (20x60 m; June-Sept) with constantly changing water checked regularly by the authorities to ensure its purity. Extensive games room with arcade machines and Internet. Live musical nights on Saturdays. Tennis.
From E50 (D5) motorway take exit 10 for Lodenice. Follow camping signs and for Chrustenice. Site is 300 m. on right 1 km. north of Chrustenice.Link to campsite location map on google
