The Balaton Britons club [about 80 members and who meet on the second Tuesday of each month in Gyenesdias] have members who have all sorts of skills and knowledge about Hungary. 2 or 3 do removals to/from UK.
pm me for more information.

Hi Everyone

Can someone please tell me the difference between a 'weekend house' and an ordinary house in Hungary. Are you only allowed to live there for so many months per year?? We were planning to relocate to Hungary but with the pound falling and the housing market stagnant in the UK we may have to delay our plans. So we might buy a weekend house as an interim measure and spend part of the year in Hungary. Can anyone enlighten me??

Will be in Hungary again in August cant wait. All you lucky people in the Balaton I hope the sun is shining and its nice and warm for you.

A weekend house you can only spend a certain amount of time at. I think it depends on where it is.

I bought my house (not a weekend house) in 2006 when the forint was 400 to the £ I think its about 289 now according to xe.com. It has two bedrooms a bathroom a kitchen a larder and a large hallway plus several outbuilding on a large plot. I paid 14k for it. It's in a village outside nagykanizsa and 30/40 mins from the Balaton. You can get bargains if you look further afield than on websites. Definitely bargains to be had!

Mods..... do you think there has been sufficient interest in Hungary for it to have it's own forum within Europe?

Cannot pick up BBC/ITV channels on a small dish.
Would need a dish over 2 metres and signal would probably drop out sometimes depending on time of day.
Small dish picks up CH4 CH5 and most sky progs including all sports channels [allegedly]

Apparently ITV was picked up on a small dish last month for a few days. Reasons unknown.

I really think you will need more than one thread to convince admin. ;-)
Take a look at the Spain forum to compare, and that is slow compared to usual.
