The house is beautiful with big terrace and indeed spectacular view. Inside lots of space and attention has been put on every possible detail. Ericka who was introducing us to the house and the surrounding was very caring and gave very useful information also about where to go. Hungary was new to us but we love it and the house and the people were definitely a big factor in this. We recommend it very much! Thank you Keith and Ericka! Kamala, Rajiv and Marte
