A Modern Storybook Village in the Czech Republic, Overnight Accommodations Included

April 4, 2017

Located near an apple orchard in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, Javornice Distillery is a cluster of community buildings—including guest rooms, a pub, and a dance hall—designed by architects ADR. We love the clean lines of the gables and the storybook palette of muted grays and robin’s egg blues. Take a look.
