About The Owner
Myself (Bridgett Gill) and my partner (Brendan Wheatley) are in our late fifties and involved in the world of opera. We run Swansea City Opera, a mid scale opera company which tours all over the UK, and also Opera Box, well known for its smaller shows and outdoor performances of opera. Both are registered charities. The history, culture and love of music of the Hungarian people were a great influencing factor in our decision to buy a classical apartment in Budapest. We were looking for an investment for our retirement and had planned to visit three countries before making our choice, but after seeing the beauty of Budapest and finding the Hungarian people so friendly and welcoming, we decided to look no further. We hope you love the city us much as we do!
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007
Why The Owner chose Budapest
Because we live in a very old cottage in Wales and love historic houses, we were looking for a building and apartment that had history and original features. We think we have found the perfect apartment and have completely renovated and restored it with a lot of love and thought. As well as being in a beautiful building, designed by Budapest's second most famous architect -Joseph Hild, the apartment is close to all forms of public transport, and central to all the tourist attractions and the Opera House. In addition, because we love good food and wine, we chose a location with good restaurants close by! By the way I can heartily recommend Hungarian wine, not a lot of it is sold abroad as they keep most of it for themselves!
What makes this apartment unique
We took our time over renovating our apartment because we wanted to preserve the old Hungarian character whilst having all the advantages of modern living. We explored the fascinating antique come flea market on the outskirts of Budapest, called Ecseri, where we found our original light fittings and door handles, and visited many auction houses to buy original pictures and furniture that we then restored. When we bought our apartment in 2007 the courtyard and grand, classically arched interior of the house were still in a rather dilapidated state, the courtyard is now completely restored and redecorated. It looks fantastic and I know I shouldn't, but I feel very proud!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Our visit to Budapest is almost complete. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was excellent for our needs and comfortable for four. We thought Budapest was beautiful and were able to visit all the most famous sites. There is more to see and I would certainly love to return sometime. Attila was helpful and allowed us to begin our transition pleasantly. The people in Budapest were friendly and we found speaking only English to not be a problem. Thank you and hope all is well with the apartment.
