On the Slovak land, between the Tríbeč and Pohronský Inovec mountains, which is divided by the serpenting river Žitava... In this way, we could start with the fact that you know where Chalúpka stands with the garden as from another world. And even more specifically, to tune your GPS coordinates, so on the Borisko stands near Jedľové Kostoľany. A magical piece of the land of Ponitrie, interwoven with history, provided a refuge for a nice woman. Her name is Lucia and they might have called her an herbalist or a witch. The name still fits 😉 Who knows. In any case, it "enchants". Because Chalúpka got her unique face thanks to her sense of beauty and perception of the world. At first glance, someone might say a little creative chaos, but at first however... for unknown reasons, you can feel at home very quickly ...After all, we have to say - it´ s magic. And to make that impression perfect, you will also find the work of her creative mind and hands outside. This is where she conjured a garden. You can safely say that experimental. Lucia knows herself, she is an expert. Unknowingly, you can indulge in a cleansing bath for your mind, connecting the inner world with the outer. And besides, no one will be cut short by ecology either. Here it lives, buzzes, buzzes and smells. It is wild and domestic here. Sublime and earthy. It is not known if it is that piece of land, castles scattered around, unique creativity. What will we tell you - try to figure it out for yourself, right here in Chalúpka.

Here Slowhop will describe your place

My passion is to play with the space in which we live. Since childhood, my life evolves around the garden, design and beauty. Shortly after obtaining a master's degree in garden architecture, I moved to Belgium, where I worked for my favorite garden designer, Mr. Jacques Wirtz and his studio Wirtz International. Here I have worked on many large-scale projects in China, Singapore and the United Kingdom. After years of rich international experience, I founded the studio of garden and landscape architecture adamickova landscapes, based in Slovakia.

Our Cottage is really such a small cozy cottage. Don't look for a castle or a giant labyrinth here. After all, it will be good for you in a pile like this and close to each other. But just so you know, a maximum of 5 people can fit here. After crossing the threshold of the door, you immediately realize that the kitchen with a dining table and a fireplace reigns downstairs. There is also a bathroom and when you need to work, there is also a special place for your needs. (If necessary, this reading room/study room can accommodate one person on a folding couch). In addition, you will also find a bathroom and a sauna. Upstairs you sleep in two bedrooms - one of them accommodates 2 people who will sleep on a mattress. The second bedroom, we call it blue, also accommodates 2 people. You can find her upstairs. And just like the entire cottage, this room will take you back in time. You will find one double bed, a sofa, a reading corner and a balcony with a view of the surrounding forests and meadows. BLUE ROOM WITH A BALCONY Pssst, just so you know - unless you want to rent the entire Cottage and you want to come only single or in pairs, you can only rent the Blue Room with a balcony. Of course, access to the kitchen is guaranteed :)

The heart of our cottage is the kitchen with dining room. There is cold water only in the kitchen however kitchen stove and fire place in the dining room will keep you warm. And it serves not only for cooking, but also for ... relaxation :). The fire place with two armchairs is the hot spot. And they will act on you like honey for bees. Sit down & relax blissfully ... while sipping hot cocoa or herbal tea. But back to that, if you need to feed your hungry bellies. You will cook on a tiled stove, but we also have a double hob. That's just in case if you didn't have enough. You will find everything you could need - a teapot, pans and pots, a mocha coffee maker for morning coffee, wood for the oven. And look for spices over the fireplace.

Amygdala. The garden that surrounds the cottage from all its sides. Does that word sound familiar? Some acquired knowledge or specialist dictionary would tell you that the amygdala is a brain structure that has... "an important role in the formation and storage of memory traces associated with emotional events". We could safely say that it is our emotional brain. And we hope that in this Amygdala, you will be able to experience positive emotions at least in part. Maybe it will seem like a garden from a fairy tale or some magical land. Let yourself be tempted by its nooks and crannies, relax in it. Go barefoot and feel free to run around on the dew here in the morning. Wash yourself with it for "beauty" too :) Sit or lie down (in a corner or quietly on the ground) and listen to the rustling of the wind in the treetops, the buzzing of the bees, the chirping of the neighbors' birds. Breathe in the scent of earth, cut grass, rain or herbs that you will find here. Feel free to tear them off and make yourself a cup of tea that will connect you even more with the energy of this place. Just do what you haven't done in a long time - relax, laze around, enjoy every moment. And if you want to wander, another world will appear simply behind the diaphragm. Hills, valleys, river. Do you want to hike? Take it easy - the mountains of the Tríbeč and Pohronské Inovec mountains will take care of your entertainment. You won't even be able to complain about the lack of castles and ruins here. There are also a few of them in our area, and you can go to some of them on foot or by bike. Otherwise, there is also a sauna in the cottage if you need to warm up and regenerate your muscles after wandering around. P.S.: Would you like to be initiated into the secrets of the garden as such, or would you like to learn how to create a mini greenhouse in a bottle? Do not hesitate to ask Lucie.

What’s there for children?

Let them "get lost" in their world. The whole garden is waiting for their discovery and fun. They can hide here, crawl on trees, or eat fruit straight from the tree. And the world behind our fence will be a great place for joint trips. You can also go for the bison to the zoo or other animals to the Zoo. Behind the water to one of the water parks and when some stories and legends are heard with your mouth open, do not miss the surrounding castles.

NATURE: Borisko is originally a very peaceful cottage settlement, some families live here permanently. Please respect and greet this little community and maintain silent hours (after 22.00 o´clock). Since we are in very close touch with nature here, we try to have as little impact as possible on her (e.g. by lowering the amount of waste and energy consumption). Therefore we prefer guests who are respectful towards nature, come here mainly to relax. Naturally, this is not a place for heavy parties. CLEANING: We believe at Chalúpka that our guests are civilized people therefore we don´t have a cleaning fee. We do have a CLEANING DEPOSIT of 50 €, which you pay on arrival. It is going to be returned on your departure once you keep Chalúpka in clean condition. We expect you to treat Chalúpka respectfully, same as you treat your own home. We have a simple rule, as you find our Chalúpka on arrival, prepared cozy & clean for you, we expect you to leave it in the same condition on your departure. Regarding trash, whatever trash you produce, take it with you (material & emotional :)). Except paper trash & kitchen organic leftovers, that you may leave. For organic leftovers there is a pot in the kitchen and one outside in the garden. Please empty the one in the kitchen to the one outside before you leave. SAUNA: There is a sauna at the property, accessible on request. Please take a shower before you enter and use a towel during your stay in the sauna. ANIMALS: Pets are welcome in all outdoor spaces within the property. They can enjoy freely the four-terraced garden. For resting and sleeping, there is a roofed part of the cottage, right next to the front door. We would prefer that pets stay exclusively outdoors.

Pre nás osobne zatiaľ najkrajšia chalupa na akej sme boli, na ktorej je vidieť, že domáci do nej vložili srdce. To platí aj pre záhradu. Chalupa je vybavená so všetkým čo treba na príjemný pobyt. Okolitá príroda stojí za to, možnosti turistiky sú fakt slušné. A hlavne, pani domáca je veľmi ústretová a ochotná, komunikácia s ňou bola príjemná, nič nebol problém a všetko sa dalo vyriešiť. Čiže odporúčam komukoľvek, kto hľadá pohodu, kľud a oddych.

Host: Lucia

Juraj, ďakujem krásne za 5hviezdičkové hodnotenie. Bolo mi potešením hostiť Vás.


Lucka je veľmi príjemná, milá hostiteľka. Chalúpka je tiché, príjemné, pokojné miesto, ideálne na oddych. Odporúčame pozorovanie hviezd, nebo je tam nádherné. V chalúpke sme sa cítili ako doma, bolo nám krásne. Ďakujeme Lucke, že vytvára raj na zemi a delí sa oň. Jana a Michal


Pri hľadaní domčeka v prírode som dúfala, že sa mi podarí nájsť miesto, na ktoré by som sa chcela vracať a podarilo sa mi to na prvý krát! Chalúpka je skvelé miesto na oddych a Lucia je nesmierne srdečná a pohodová hostiteľka. Je tu úžasné ticho. Z balkóna v Modrej izbe a zo záhrady, s láskou upravenej, je fantastický výhľad. Chalúpka je tak zariadená, ze nám v nej nechýbalo nič.
