South Bohemian Creative Retreats

Past Milkwood artist Mark Vinci



Accommodations & Services



With a fully equipped apartment, Milkwood Artist Residence provides an opportunity for artists and scholars to concentrate on their work, meet local artists and explore the historic and natural sites of the region. Residents of Milkwood find themselves vitalized by the idyllic, village environment and the strong contemporary community of Czech artists who have made their home in Cesky Krumlov. The location provides excellent opportunities for day trips to Prague, Vienna, Linz or other South Bohemian towns.

On occasion, Milkwood hosts educational and cultural programs that utilize the residence. To help support its programming, it also accepts non-resident guests at short-term rates. No programming or guest accommodations, however, are scheduled when artists are in residence, and residence scheduling takes precedence over other activities.

Milkwood provides linens and complete kitchen facilities but does not prepare meals or provide daily cleaning services. Residents are expected to maintain their rooms during their stay and are welcome to use the house laundry facilities. The residency also provides full access to computer and Internet services.
