We were both born in London, but have lived in Hertfordshire for all our adult lives. My father was Hungarian and I spent many years visiting Hungary before we decided we would like a place of our own. I often visited this part of Hungary as a child and it is a pleasure to be able to return on a regular basis. We have been bringing our two daughters to Hungary for 20 years and have had many wonderful holidays here.
We bought the house in the Bodony for two reasons. Firstly, we stayed in a number of places in the area that we felt were not really what we expected from a holiday home so we wanted better and more importantly because it is a lovely part of Hungary and allowed us to visit the more rugged Matra and Bukk areas easily while still having great access to Budapest. It is in a great wine region and offers the beauty of being in the mountains, while still being close enough to travel to Budapest for the day trip. We feel we get the best of both worlds!
We regularly use the property and have done our best to ensure it is well equipped and comfortable to use. We like to cook so we have a well equipped kitchen.
We love sitting on the sun drenched terrace on a hot summer's day enjoying a drink or a BBQ while viewing Galyteto Mountain rising from the fields the run from the back of the garden. The games room has been great for us and the children and makes a great venue for a drink and conversation on both hot summers evenings and on cooler autumn or winter nights
