Located in Valeč near Třebíč, this 16thcentury chateau was appropriated in the 1950s and subsequently used as stables and vegetable storage by an agricultural cooperative. In 1991, the devastated property was returned to the original owners, who did not have the needed financial resources for its repair and attempted to sell the chateau over the course of many years. In 2008, it was finally purchased by Ing. Bronislav Vala, who in 2011 undertook a thorough and extensive renovation of the chateau, an adjoining park with two fishponds and surrounding historical buildings (former cowsheds). After two years of intensive repairs to the heavily damaged buildings, the chateau was opened in 2013 and now serves as a hotel and congress complex.
