Vilémov Chateau – A Rural Residence with an Unmistakable Atmosphere

VilémovAlong our journey through Vysočina, we also headed to the area between the towns of Čáslav and Havlíčkův Brod – to the village of Vilémov with a unique historic site. The rural chateau of Vilémov itself and the surrounding area with fresh air provide the ideal venue for holding conferences, seminars, artistic workshops, weddings, celebrations, and concerts.

The original wooden staircase took us to the local conference space. The first floor of the chateau houses the Mirror Hall for 80 people with an entrance to the terrace that continues directly to the park. There you can find sports and recreational facilities spread out over 30 acres. Guests can use the covered outdoor pool, croquet field, clay tennis court, outdoor bowling lane, table tennis, darts, garden chess, and the adjacent forest park for taking strolls. What really caught our attention was the observatory – a wooden building with a retractable roof and a telescope for star-gazing. As the chateau manager confirmed, grilling is allowed in the garden. The garden has a special charm, and the experience is enhanced by the neighboring deer park with fallow deer that will greet you at the garden fence. There is a small chateau salon for 12 people on the first floor of the building with restored frescos on the ceiling, once a chateau chapel. On the ground floor, you will find a dining room with an open fire and 40 seats with service. The chateau and the pavilions next to it house altogether 42 rooms, some furnished in a period style that will surprise you with the floor area and generous design.

The entire chateau was renovated after Prof. Dr. Vladimir Reisky de Dubnic returned home from the USA. In the last ten years of his life, he made it his mission to restore the chateau and its surroundings. He succeeded and the Vilémov Chateau has become the ideal place for conferences, teambuilding, celebrations, and other interesting events. As the Baron was a political scientist and during his emigration, an advisor to US presidents, the top floor of the chateau houses a library with titles specializing in current Central European political and economic issues and integration into the EU.
