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.
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.
A three-floor home dug into a rock escarpment overlooking the Vltava River, Milkwood Artist Residence provides artists and guests the top-floor apartment, complete with kitchen and bathroom, and full access to the large first-floor terrace facing the river. Permanent resident artists live in the lower apartment. 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.
The residency is located in the village of Cesky Krumlov. International visitors can fly into major airports in Prague or Vienna. Daily trains and buses from both cities travel to the South Bohemian town of Ceske Budejovice, which is 20 minutes drive from Cesky Krumlov. Local trains and buses commute daily between the two towns; however, some visitors opt to take a taxi for about 30 USD. Infrequently, while on other errands, Milkwood staff and associates may pick up visitors in Prague or Ceske Budejovice.
