Malý háj

Aranka has a little sister, we call her Cinderella! It's her tan larch cloak...

Watch the lazy hills separating the pastures from the meadows, the groves from the dark woods, the old rowan from the prickly pines, the silent and white church tower from the buildings in the surroundings. The surrounding landscape resembles a water level rising and falling. Silent neighbours are the fireflies over the nearby moor and the rock that calls itself Eduardo's. The old, deeply wrinkle-ridden Eduard allows you to run on its back to its summit, stop, sit, and just be surrounded by beauty, peace, and quiet.

Cinderella awaits you 1.5 hours northwest of Prague.

Reservation conditions

Although Popelka is capable of accommodating up to four lodgers, she is primarily intended for lovers. However, she’ll be more than happy to accommodate a family with three children if they decide to come.

Popelka would like her guests to spend at least two nights with her. Shorter bookings are not possible.

It’s a bit of an annoyance, but we also need your consent to the General Terms and Conditions of hideandseek. They also include the Code of Ethics and Safety and Technical Rules (Technical Manual).

How to make a reservation

Click to select the day of arrival and the day of departure in our calendar. Fill in a few necessary details and that's it. Please be aware that at least 2 nights must be reserved.

Prices and payment

Popelka costs CZK 4,014 per night from Monday to Friday. The CZK 14 is the price of an oak seedling, which will be planted during your stay at Popelka in a place where the pine trees, which cannot get enough moisture from the soil for their lives, are withering. The price for weekends is a thousand crowns and one oak seedling per night higher. So CZK 5,028. The prices include 10% VAT.

In order for your reservation to be deemed confirmed, the payment made by wire transfer must be credited to our bank account no later than three working days after the reservation is made.


We deeply appreciate your time and know how difficult it is to plan days, weeks and months in advance. Work commitments, illness or just the desire to pursue spontaneous ideas with family, friends, people you love often change your long-term plans at the last minute. We understand this because we are like that ourselves. At the same time, we don't want your paid stay at one of the hideandseek places to be a commitment from which you can't escape. After all, life should be filled with ease and freedom!

In cooperation with the insurance company RVE, we have prepared a cancellation insurance option for you so that you do not lose your funds just because circumstances change your plans at the last minute. We have set everything up so that it can be done "at the snap of a finger". You can do everything with a single click directly in our booking calendar. In case you decide not to use the offered insurance and after paying for the reservation you find out that you don't want to go to Cinderella anymore, we won't send you the payment back, but you can be happy that it will cover the stay for someone who couldn't afford it (single mother, student, ...).

What you can leave at home

Popelka has basic equipment and ingredients for your gastronomic pleasure, such as Nepalese salt, cane sugar, Arabic coffee, Sicilian virgin olive oil and Oolong Japanese green tea. The kitchen has a pan, pot, a mocha teapot, a french press coffee maker, a teapot, cups, mugs, wine glasses, sharp knives and butter knives, plates, bowls, a wine opener, a potato peeler, a pasta or salad strainer. Organic cosmetics await you in the bathroom. There is a barbecue grill in front of Popelka.

In the fridge you will find wines from Nepraš, Pilsner Urquell beer and olives.

What else is good to know…

In addition to Aranka with a heated sauna, a fire in the fireplace, fluffy comforters and chilled wine, the caretaker Pepé is also waiting for you. He will tell you everything about Aranka, what she likes, what she doesn't like, but also where you can go for a romantic dinner, from where it’s best to watch the sunset, which spot is closest to the stars, where you can go down the river in a canoe, where you can fish and much more. Pepé is a Renaissance man, so don’t be afraid to ask him about anything if you need something else,

Please arrive at the meeting place on time so that Aranka and Pepé won’t be waiting long for you. Check-in is 3 pmcheck-out until 11 am or you can arrange it with Pepé individually.

Jana and Milan

A fairy from the Beskydy Mountains, who likes to dance in the ferns at the foot of her highest mountain Lysá hora. She loves to wander barefoot for long hours through the morning dew, touching the landscape, smelling the meadow flowers. To take a deep breath and take in all the beauty of nature into her lungs, look into the sun and then fall sweetly asleep under a gnarled pine tree. 

A mountain man with a big heart. He has belonged here with Cinderella in the Ore Mountains for many years, actually since he was a boy afraid to go around his native cottage in the dark. A lover of nature in all its diversity. A man who shares everything beautiful with all those close to his heart. He will advise you where to go cycling, hiking or where the white trail glitters like the purest diamond.

And as lovers of good food and drink, Jana and Milan will recommend what good things the wild country around Popelka has to offer its guests.
