Peaceful Country Retreat
The property is situated in a peaceful 'garden area' where people plant flowers, fruit and vegetables in their long narrow plots. This attracts plenty of wildlife and the small lanes make for pleasant morning and evening strolls. This is a great area to bird watch- we even saw storks on telephone poles in a small village. The house itself is very charming with some very nice features. The washer was intriguing and not one I'd come across before, but I was impressed at how efficient it was. We stayed for 4 weeks, and found the kitchen to be well equipped since I cooked most of our meals - love the toaster oven!- and there were plenty of linens and towels. The master bedroom is very large and comfortable, though the steep, narrow stairs can be slightly worrisome during the night. Originating from the UK and speaking no Hungarian, I was pleasantly surprised to find Tesco stores in Tatabanya. The product names are in English even though the instructions etc were not. This made shopping very easy. We rented the owner's car at a very reasonable rate and his wonderful friends met us at the airport, took us grocery shopping, invited us to their house and basically became our friends. The dear neighbours were also very kind and there whenever we needed some assistance. The owner was very helpful, doing whatever he could to ensure we had a memorable stay. A big thank you to all! We would love to return to Hungary and would, without hesitation recommend the property to friends.
