About Tibor Ambrus
My wife and I are from Eastern Europe. Doina is Romanian and I, Tibor am Hungarian. We live in the San Fransisco Bay Area and have three grown children. We love Hungary and Eastern Europe, and have come back to visit several times, and we plan to continue to visit many times in the future.
Tibor Ambrus purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2006
Why Tibor Ambrus chose Tatabánya
It's a convenient and peaceful place to stay, and we've never had a bad night here! It is always very quiet and country-like, just a few minutes away from downtown Tatabanya, and a short distance from three major capitals: Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava. We've made many visits to these three cities after having breakfast at the house, and then returned back to the house late in the evening of the same day. This makes this property a much better place to stay for a vacation than any of these three big cities, or any other big city in the area, for that matter. You will not be disappointed.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
This is not your everyday vacation. If you enjoy going to places you've never been before, you like to taste food you've never tasted before and you like to meet people you've never seen before, this is your place and your opportunity! We will help you to make your dream trip happen!

Charming home in the Hungarian countryside
This home was well appointed for the 5 of us with all we needed for a 5-night stay. We were able to cook, do laundry and just relax here. The host and neighbors were very welcoming and after a few long day trips, it was great to come home to this beautiful place to rest and relax in the peace and quiet of the country setting.
Tatabanya was a great location for exploring Hungary. It is close enough to make day trips to Budapest, Lake Balaton, Estergom and even Bratislava and Vienna if you're up for a bit longer drive to a nearby country.
We really enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to come back!
Lovely home close to downtown but far enough away for peace and quiet.
We stayed here in early April after 2 weeks in France. It was great to be back in a house where we could rest and relax while planning our sightseeing adventures in the area. This home is close to Vienna, Budapest and the Lake Balaton region, so it is a perfect base for doing day trips to these places. Don't miss the Szelem Cave, Turul Eagle monument and the old mining headframe--climb to the top for a spectacular view of the area! We had everything we needed at the house--well-appointed kitchen, washing machine, Internet access and a large yard with blossoming fruit trees! We were very happy with our stay here, and would definitely come back again. Side note: loved the shades being on the outside of the windows instead of inside--much nicer! We should do that in the US.
Thank you Tibor and Doina for this wonderful vacation home!
Wonderful country home
We recently finished our european trip with a stay in Tatabanya, Hungary. We wanted to visit Budapest and Vienna and this home is conveniently located between these two cities. Tatabanya is a very nice town with great sites to visit, wonderful restaurants and very friendly people. We had been staying in hotels for most of our trip and it was great to stay in this cozy home with a well appointed kitchen and laundry.
Tranquil Location, Fantastic Home Base
Enjoy your morning coffee in a quiet country-like setting, then driv 45 minutes to Budapest for a day on the town. Or, explore the little villages and nearby town and their little family owned restaurants for delicious eating. This property has it all. From the location to the country charm. And, the beds are marvelously! The house is well appointed and quite comfortable. We used it as a home base to explore Hungry, Austria (Vienna is about an hour away) and the surrounding countries. It was ideal. We enjoyed everything from the castle at Tata in the next town over to the Croatian coast, a day's drive away. The place is ideal for a quiet country retreat ot a base from which to explore an area rich in history. We could not recommend it more highly.
Enchanting Emerald Green Countryside and Lovely Inviting Home
At this marvelous two story super cottage, I fell in love with not only the home and grounds themselves, but the surrounding small nearby villages, each with its own charm and flavor. When at home, I could lounge and read, walk the country roads, cook or visit with any of the lovely inviting neighbors. The house is in a safe area with a huge fenced in area for kids to play. Making this remarkable property even better, There is a fundamental generosity of heart in the Hungarian soul and the neighbors constantly reached out to us with their kindness and generosity.
The unit is quite well appointed, comfortable with washing machine at the ready. The kitchen too, has all the necessities although the neighboring restaurants served marvelous fare and constantly tempted me away from cooking even though there are superb markets quite nearby.
Don't forget to go to at least one of Hungarirs famous spas where thermal waters soak away any left over tension from the world outside of Hungaries borders.
I am embarrassed to say I made it into Budapest only twice wanting to get away from the bustle of larger cities on this tour. But Budapest is just a tempting 30 minute drive away.

Our property is approx 30 miles west of Budapest, about 80 miles east from Vienna, and about 65 miles southeast from Bratislava. It is located 3 minutes from the main freeway ('M1).
The property is in a garden section (called 'Kert Varos' or 'Garden City') of town with a wonderful view of the mountains. It's a countryside location within minutes from the downtown area of the City of Tatbanya, which is a city of approx 80,000 people. You can be in Budapest in about 30 minutes (or about an hour to the Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest - formerly called the Ferihegy Airport). The cities of Vienna and Bratislava are 75 and 65 minutes away each, respectively, all using the main freeway. Tata is 10km away, with an 800 year old castle (Castle of Tata) with a moat. This is the only castle like this (with a moat) in Hungary. The small town of Tata is a tourist town, and has several small shops, bars and pizzarias, and a small lake that you can walk around, or sit on the Tsu-Tsu Train that goes around the city. There are many wonderful restaurants in Tatabanya and the surrounding areas. If you would like to visit, call us and we can tell you more. It's a wonderful adventure and a great vacation.
