Wondering how to spend your summer? Are you a lover of wine, cycling or hiking? Discover the 1,200 kilometres of wine trails in Moravia! You can choose from a total of eighteen circuits named after the main wine centres. The routes ingeniously connect interesting places and offer visitors day trips and multi-day trips full of exercise and first-class Moravian wine. Once you start with one, you'll want to try the others! Here's a selection of the ones you shouldn't miss, along with a few tips on luxury living.
"It's a longer, but worse journey." The Znojmo Wine Route is the longest of the Moravian wine circuits with its 189 km length. It meanders through an area where aromatic white wines are key. The northern part of the trail is not so demanding, it goes between fields and vineyards. Around the Podyjí National Park, however, more challenging terrain awaits cyclists. Along the way, athletes will encounter authentic farm buildings and wines, which are not for nothing said to be the best in South Moravia.
You can start tasting them in the famous Lahofer winery. The architecturally exceptional building inspired by the shape of vineyards even won a special prize from the jury of the prestigious Best of Realty competition. Guided tastings for small groups of 12 people are organised here. You can stay in the adjacent luxury hotel of the same name, a historic property with modern features dating back to the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. From the outside, the hotel is inconspicuous, but inside, elegant, timeless interiors await guests.
Route: Znojmo, Hnanice, Šatov, Dobšice, Božice, Břežany, Šanov, Višňové, Miroslav, Troskotovice, Vlasatice, Kubšice, Vedrovice, Moravský Krumlov, Jezeřany-Maršovice
The 98 km trail on the eastern side reaches the White Carpathian slopes. It is ideal for a few days' stay in the area of picturesque folk architecture and delicious white wines.
If you want to go beyond the fateful hundred kilometres, take a short detour to the unhigh hill Radošov (242 m above sea level) near the village called Hroznová Lhota. It is on this hill that one of the youngest lookout towers in the country is located. Its added value is the original shape of the wine goblet. From a height of 15 metres, you can enjoy a generous view of the Lower Moravian Valley in all its beauty, the Chřiby Mountains and a large part of the White Carpathians. Among others, the Moravian painter Joža Uprka worked in this village and depicted the folklore of South Moravia in his works.
Route: Sudoměřice, Petrov, Strážnice, Radějov, Tvarožná Lhota, Lipov, Blatnička, Blatnice pod Svatým Antonínkem
This wine trail is without exaggeration one of the most beautiful. The closed eighty-four-kilometre circuit follows the borders of the Mikulov wine sub-region. The route is mostly flat and runs along the river Dyje, ponds and Novomlýnské reservoirs or through the Lednice-Valtice area. The colonnade at Rajstno will also cross your bike path, and the route climbs to a moderate altitude above Valtice. In addition to the obligatory wine breaks, make a short stop along the way at the beautiful Lichtenstein Summer Castle in Lednice and the Minaret in the adjacent park, you won't regret it.
As this is a trip of a few days, make sure you book a night at the Adalbert Residence in Valtice before your trip. A luxury property with romantic rooms and first-class customer service will please everyone. Not to mention a visit to the local wine cellar!
Route: Mikulov, Valtice, Hlohovec, Lednice, Bulhary, Milovice, Dolní Věstonice, Strachotín, Ivaň, Pasohlávky

The interest in holiday properties in the country is not waning. However, their supply is completely insufficient after almost two years of boom. This, together with the rising price of building materials and labour, is reflected in their high prices. The new project Apartments Albeřice with 11 design units, which is growing in the mountain village of Horní Maršov - Dolní Albeřice in the Krkonoše Mountains, should help to satisfy the enormous demand. The exclusive sale of luxury apartments has now been launched by our real estate agency Luxent - Exclusive Properties! The construction of the low-rise building is expected to start towards the end of this year, with completion planned for the 4th quarter of next year.

Are you dreaming of a new exclusive property near Prague, but at the same time close to nature? Now we have launched the sale of luxury houses in the second phase of the development project Březový háj, which is growing in the village of Předboj. It includes 4 original family villas of 6+kk and 7+kk with gardens, terraces and swimming pools - and their construction has already started! Despite the situation on the real estate market, where, among other things, prices are rising due to a shortage of building materials, interest in the project is huge. Of the sixteen houses in the first phase, only the last one is currently available for purchase. Their implementation will be completed at the turn of this spring and summer, and the entire project with the second phase should be completed in the summer of 2023.

The steep rise in real estate prices, the rising cost of mortgages and the deterioration of their availability, inflation, the rise in prices of building materials and the shortage of building materials - this is the current situation on the real estate market. However, even this does not discourage those interested in luxury housing or a profitable investment. The demand for new flats, especially in Prague, still significantly exceeds the supply. The huge interest is also evidenced by the fact that in many development projects from our portfolio the last units remain to be purchased. In order to at least partially satisfy the "hunger" for luxury new buildings, work is in full swing. Let's take a closer look at the current developments!

They offer the possibility of active relaxation in their own facilities in a popular Slovak recreational location as well as the opportunity for a promising investment in an apartment. The project should be completed by the end of next year. Our Luxent - Exclusive Properties office has become the exclusive partner for their sale in the Czech Republic - let's take a closer look now!
