The chateau was built in the most famous period of Czech history, during the Middle-Ages, when Prague was formed as result of Charles IV. Not only the capital of the Czech Kingdom but also the metropolis of the Holy Roman Empire.
The first mention of the manor house in Vidovice / Kunice dates back to 1388, under the reign of King Wenceslas IV, son and successor of Charles IV.
However the manor house, due to the Hussite wars, vanishes for a time and is then restored in the 17th century to the Baroque chateau.
Among its famous owners are Václav Smiřický from Libštejn, Austrian Field Marshal Josef Václav Radecký from Radeč and the Berchtolds of Uherčice.
Despite the chateau’s poor state during the period of socialist Czechoslovakia, the enlightened owner acquired the castle in 2005, and proceeded in making a total reconstruction and extension of the chateau wing toward the park and making the whole area available to the public.
The extended chateau park, the chateau restaurant and the nearby sports centre make it an ideal place to visit and live from the surrounding area.
The castle boasts the Berchtold´s coat of arms.
Kunice is located on the southern edge of Prague, in the picturesque countryside of the Lada Region (an area associated with Josef Lada, the famous Czech writer and artist). With the city of Prague behind you, you will soon find yourself in a peaceful environment that offers its advantages to every resident.
Kunice with Berchtold Chateau will enchant you, you will feel the charge of a place with a rich history but above all, the potential for the next generation. The village already has a high demographic of children and with the corresponding amenities.
The possibilities of sports activities in the village and in the surrounding countryside provide a real bonus for quality housing. What more can you wish other than a happy family life?
Kunice offers an ideal mix of picturesque and clean countryside, civic amenities and minimal distance to the city of Prague.
This genius loci might charm you.
The region is named after one of the most prominent personalities of Czech culture – Josef Lada, and is among one the most visited tourist regions. The picturesque landscape of this region invites you to wander around the countryside and to visit the places known from Lada‘s narratives. For hiking there is a number of cognitive trails and nature trails.
Children are most impressed by the journey „PohádkovéHrusice“ or „Mikešovacesta“ from Hrusice to Říčany, a route where there are 12 stops with the excerpts from the Lada´s fairytale “Mikeš” along with beautiful pictures.
Cycling routes are mainly led by the region through forest roads and local roads, leading you with a romantic hilly countryside along the banks of meadows, pastures and ponds. Their relatively dense network is designed so that everyone can choose their own circuit and also visit the region‘s attractive places. Directly through the Berchtold Chateau there leads three marked cycling trails and also the route „Region of Josef Lada“ as part of Greenways Prague-Vienna.
The designs of the residential villas were inspired by the style of prominent architect Frank Lloyd Wright, whose works are still highlighted today for their timelessness, clarity, unity and harmony.
The uniqueness of the immediate surroundings encouraged Wright‘s style, which loved open spaces, and emphasized the interconnection of buildings with surrounding nature. Thanks to this concept, you can see almost all of the residence‘s living quarters in the castle and the corners of its most beautiful parts of the gardens.
The buildings allow the locality and its inhabitants to belong. The private areas are not confined to the park by high walls and fences, but with low supporting walls and greenery. The private area of individual houses is gently marked and does not represent a visual barrier. This is achieved by completing the castle complex with its clear ending against the historic building of the chateau.
There are also typical flat roofs with great overhangs and the distinctive horizontal lines of Wright, which we have brought into our design. This has resulted in spacious terraces, where the garden becomes part of your new home.
Using a suitably chosen material for the exteriors, we want to make a connection with the historic building of the chateau and the whole area of the chateau gardens. We count on the use of, for example, stone cladding and large-faced facade panels with a layer of real wood veneer.
