About the property

Open kitchen with living room, bathroom-WC, terrace, 2 bedrooms, WC

Enclosed lone-standing holiday home about 80 m2, with covered terrace and garden - Our well-kept holiday home is about 50 km south of Budapest, somewhat outside of the city of Rackeve by Szigetbecse, directly on the non-shippable 'small Danube', an estuary from the larger Danube. If you love 'pure nature', water, swimming, fishing, rowing, rest and relaxation (unwinding), painting, drawing, photography - then you will love it here. Since the small Danube is regulated through locks and the water is calm, swimming is safe for children as well. Through a dock you can get to the swimming platform and to the water. The house has a beautiful garden with an outdoor grill area. Additionally, there are 2 bicycles, a rubber boat and a lot more. The house is fully equipped and is separated into a living-dining room, (fireplace oven) kitchen, bathroom (shower, sink, WC, washing machine) and the bedrooms. The large terrace offers a beautiful view of the water.

Surroundings: Horse riding nearby; -guided rides in the Puszta near Apayi. In Rackeve you will find a thermal healing spa and a wellness hotel and a public sauna. Beach Szigetbecse and bistro (large garden terrace, near Janos, inexpensive food). During the winter, ice skating on the frozen Danube. About 85 km to Lake Balaton. A hospital in Rackeve for emergencies; dentist. Very important: they understand German!

Attractions: Szigetbecse: photo museum (Andree Kertesz house), Catholic church, walks through the village. Rackeve: castle hotel (exhibitions), Catholic and Evangelical (reformed) church, orthodox church (oldest church in Hungary, very attractive), boat market (largest market in Hungary on Wednesday and Saturday), Danube bridge, Danube park and other interesting things.

Shopping facilities: Szigetbecse: small market by the yellow house - and right along the corner is Eddas Store. Barbershop. Rackeve: Wednesday and Saturday = market day, Penny, Plus, Coop, Lidl, Schlecker, DM pharmacy, bakery, butcher and a lot more.

Erholung Pur!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wer Urlaub machen will ist hier genau richtig!

Es ist exakt genau so wie es beschrieben ist.

Nahe zu perfekt zum Angeln oder um Tagesausflüge zu starten, entweder nach Rackeve, nach Budapest oder einfach in die nahe gelegene Natur.

Wir haben einen wirklich tollen, unvergesslichen Urlaub dort verbracht.

Ruhiges Urlaubs- und Anglerparadies

  • 5 of 5

die übergebenen Reiseunterlagen mit vielen Beschreibungen machten die Anreise und den Aufendhalt sehr angenehm.

Wer Ruhe sucht und enspannen möchte ist bestens aufgehoben.

Für Angler gibt es Fische in ausreichender Menge.

Naturliebhaber kommen voll auf ihre Kosten von Jungfischen über Frösche und Vögel gibt es jede Menge zum beobachten.

Es ist eine sehr ruhige Gegend bestens zum Ausspannen und um zu sich zu kommen.

Wir kommen wieder.

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir können den Aufenthalt in diesem idyllisch gelegenen Ferienhaus nur empfehlen.

Schon im Vorfeld des Aufenthaltes hatten wir einen netten Kontakt zum Vermieter, der uns auch mit ausführlichen Informationen versorgte.

Die Schlüsselübergabe beim örtlichen Verwalter klappte problemlos, das Haus und das Grundstück waren tiptop sauber.

Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, die Beschreibung ist exakt.

Es gibt mehrere schöne Plätze auf dem Grundstück und am Wasser um einfach zu entspannen und die Seele baumeln zu lassen.

Bei einem Ausflug nach Budapest können wir den Park & Ride Parkplatz an der Station Kőbánya-Kispest empfehlen. Die Anreise mit der Vorortbahn ab Rackeve ist ebenfalls möglich, war uns aber zu zeitaufwändig.

Im Restaurant Becsei Vendeglö in Szigetbecse (direkt an der Abzweigung zum Haus) haben wir sehr gut gegessen.

Zusammenfassend können wir sagen, dass wir sehr schöne Tage verlebt haben, das Haus weiterempfehlen können und bestimmt auch wieder kommen werden.
