“We spent two weeks in the house of András and Orsolya and their children. Their house was comfortable and offered all we needed. More beauty than the pictures on the homeforexchange site showed! And it’s a perfect spot to explore Pécs and the southern part of Hungary. Astonishing history ín the house and outside the doorstep. We let go our plan to spend a few days in Boedapest, just because Pécs was offering so much! Orfü, the wine region around Villány and Siklós were nice trips outside town. And we used the bikes for a trip to the flee-market on Sunday, what an experience! The house and garden (especially the filagoria) are perfect for relaxation after city promenades or trips further away. We met the family on the airport and communicated with them through email and cell-phone messages. Lovely people. We definitely recommend this exchange. Five stars!”
Orsolya's reviewsAs a host (4)
“We exchanged houses in July 2019 and it was a very nice experience. The house is located in the old part of the city of Pécs, 5 minutes by foot from the center. The house is very big and has a history full of details. It is very spacious and the garden is really very nice, even better than in the photos. It is nice to rest there by the end of the day after the trips around. The region is known for good wines and the lake Orfu is great to swim at half an hour distance. The communication with the family was very easy and friendly. The house was cleaned and we felt a good welcoming energy. We recommend it! ”
“We spend 10 days in beautiful Pecs, a lovely affordably town and area with lots of things to see and explore, restaurants, museums, street performants, culture, and a superb place for wine lovers with regions as Pecs and Villány. The house was located in narrow streets uphill’s in the old part, only 5 min walk to the center. The old house, spacious with high ceilings, had a great atmosphere with a personal style. We loved to relax in the garden with tomatoes and fig tree. Our hosts, Orsolya and András and all the children were very helpful, the communications went perfect, the car exchanges as well. Our best and warmly recommendations to the family and they great house at lovely Pecs.”
“In zomer 2012 hebben wij voor het eerst huizen geruild. Onze ervaring was super goed. Het huis in Pecs (Zuid-Hongarije) was meer dan we er van verwacht hadden. Mooi ingericht, ruim, schoon, van alle gemakken voorzien, fijne binnenplaats en gelegen in een rustige straat maar hartje centrum. De eigenaren hadden Hongaarse delicatessen voor ons klaar gezet en we voelden ons meteen 'thuis'. Pecs is een fraaie stad volop cultuur, historie, winkels en gezellige pleinen met terrassen. Ook de omgeving is mooi om tochtjes door te maken. Voor de wijn-liefhebbers moet het een eldorado zijn. Bovendien kun je vanuit Pecs makkelijk naar Budapest of Belgrado, zeker als je daar een nachtje over blijft. Aanrader!”
Where is it?
The home is located inside the historic city wall, two corners far from the main pedestrian street. The city area has an intimate calm and historical atmosphere. Several exhibition rooms, theaters, and the walking streets with shops and restaurant are nearby. The city was one of the Cultural Capital of Europe 2010 that has included refurbishment of several buildings and squares. See some images at http://pecs2u.eu/ or the frequently updated pictures of amateur patriots at https://www.facebook.com/szeretlekpecs. The nearby mountain, the protected villages (like Feked or Palkonya) and on the south the wine-yards of Villány offer themselves as targets for excursions.
