I am born Hungarian, but after the 1956 revolution I found my new home in Holland – said Mihály Liszkay, the owner of the Estate.
I graduated in the Netherlands,worked as a pianist around the world among others in London, Paris, New York, Istanbul and on the Cruises Ship New Rotterdam sailing between New York and Rotterdam. I was not bored, sometimes doing three or four jobs. I was a waiter or cook from morning to early evening, a pianist from 6 pm. and did gigs at night on The Hague’s sea front.
My first restaurant opened in Maastricht in 1964. The number soon grew to three. In 1974 I sold the restaurants and settled with my family in British Columbia, Canada. I moved back to Hungary in 2010 and fell in love with the wine region and bought a grape plantation.
The estate is designed in Chateaux style and surrounds a beautiful mansion. The Liszkay Wine Mansion has been built in 2012.
Even luxury hotels would be proud of our exclusive rooms with stylish bathrooms of 20-24 square meters. Beautiful suits are waiting for you, like Master Suite, Santorini, Lavendel, Mirage, Hunter’s Den, Stone Cottage or Lemon Delight suits.
The wellness section serves physical relaxation and Mr. Liszkay can sometimes be persuaded to sit before the Bösendorfer in the mansion sitting room and play in the spirit of transcendent purification, and spoil his guests by the flames of the fire-place.
Experience the unforgettable with magical settings – said Mr. Liszkay.
