Lovely house - great views and lots of space

As other reviewers have commented, the views from the terrace and pool area over the lake are superb. The house is surrounded by vineyards (belonging to neighbouring villas/houses), and has forests at its back (you can climb the hill from the back gate). The house itself is spotlessly clean, thanks to Lajos and his wife, Pearl.
There is a lovely pool area with an old-fashioned, fairly long pool, which has the advantage of being the same depth along its length, and so allows for serious swimmers as well as splashers. The pool house is well-equipped with a fridge and micro-wave, and there is a separate toilet and basin in their own little thatched house! You can take everything you need for a day by the pool, and not have to keep running back to the house.
It was very nice to have so many outside 'sitting areas' - on the front terrace, side terrace under the vine, and up at the pool.
With regards to bedrooms - the twin-bedded room is really only suitable for children, so whilst our 17-year-old (5'8") daughter was ok in that room, my 6' son had to have the second double room. Luckily, there were only the 4 of us staying, and for 4 people the house is fantastic. It would be fine for 6 people, but it would have struggled to seat 8 people comfortably in the lounge.
There are several nice restaurants and wine-tasting places within walking distance (though not in heels, as the tracks are rough). The village of Tomaj is a lovely walk (there are paths down the hill), and has some useful shops. I would particularly recommend nearby Szigliget - the castle and village, as a lovely afternoon out. We wished we had hired bikes, as there are many good cycling routes in the area.
Like another reviewer, we also combined our trip with a couple of days in an apartment in Budapest, flying in and out of Ferihegy - would thoroughly recommend it.
Thanks for a super holiday,
