Bikes and a canoe are provided for guests' use. Local contacts and details are provided for wine-making, cheese-making, hunting, cycling, bird-watching, canoeing, distilling (rakija/pálincka), language lessons (Serbian, Hungarian), fishing, horse-riding, horse & cart rides, bee-keeping, and local markets, museums and festivals. We are very happy the Village House and its guests make a positive economic contribution to Stara Moravica and the surrounding area.When required, heating is by a traditional wood-fired Pe? (Kachelofen) in the main house, a wood-fired stove in the kitchen, and electric storage heating in the bedrooms. The traditional design of the house means it stays relatively cool in summer and retains heat in winter. Firewood is provided.If you want a car-free holiday, the Village House is accessible by train from Budapest and Belgrade (alight at Ba?ka Topola, then take a taxi for less than €10).Stara Moravica is a large village of about 5,000 population with bakeries, butchers, two supermarkets, bank with ATM, post-office, pharmacies, four hardware stores, weekly market, internet café, ice-cream parlour, clothes shops, phone/computer store, children's playground, several convenience stores, kiosks and bars. Cafes offer free wi-fi. The architecture and layout has completely retained the original Austro-Hungarian design with wide, tree-lined streets, and large houses with extensive grounds attached. It is an excellent base from which to visit all Vojvodina including Subotica, Sombor, Novi Sad and Fruska Gora.There is a Swimming Pool at ClubCafe in the village (Jun-Sep, entrance €1.25/day). All amenities are about 10 minutes' walk, or less than 5 minutes' cycle, from the house.Everyone in Stara Moravica speaks Hungarian, and most speak Serbian. The village is very welcoming and people of all ages will say “hello” to visitors – listen for “jó napot!” or “szia!” and reply with the same phrase. Many people have worked in Germany or Switzerland, so the “foreign” language is as likely to be German as English, especially among older people. Teenagers learn more English than German. An English-speaking neighbour will welcome you to the house and help you during your stay with any arrangements you want to make (a modest fee may be payable if your requirements are particularly time-consuming. If this is the case she will tell you in advance). Help in French, German, Spanish, Russian and Italian is also usually available.In Subotica and Sombor you will have no problem finding people who speak good English.The house has its own broadband and wifi connection (free for guests). Wifi is also available at 2 cafes in town and in the library, which also has computers and printers available.More

About the neighborhood
Stara Moravica is a charming small town or large village. Most of the roads are wide and lined with trees - poplars along the main route through town, otherwise plum - with the houses set well back from the road. When you are in the house, life will feel very peaceful. But as soon as you step out of the gate, you will likely meet someone. The neighbours are always ready to help guests. The town facilities are easily reached on bike or on foot. Around the town is a lake (there is a canoe in the house, and you can arrange a horse and cart to take it down to the lake), and wide open agricultural land which offers great cycling in almost any direction. One area is planted with vines, and a visit to the cellars of one of the local wine-makers is a highlight for many visitors.
How to get there
Belgrade is the closest airport, car hire is easy and you will be at the house within 2 hours. If you want to break the journey we can offer several suggestions. Budapest airport is 3-4 hours dive away, and may be the better option as more airlines fly to Budapest, and prices are often lower. If you hire a car in Budapest, make sure you are covered to take it out of the EU. We can suggest car hire companies at both airports. The border crossing between Hungary and Serbia often has almost no queue, but sometimes it can be one hour or more. Another option from Budapest is to take the train. Trains to Belgrade stop at Backa Topola; alight there and take a taxi to the house for about €10. Check times at http://www.mav.hu/english/ If you are without a car and want to travel further...
