For human life the most important things are clean air, fresh drinking water and high quality food. However, besides these basic conditions, we also need several other things to make our environment livable and comfortable. We need built environment, heating, air conditioning, electronic environment, opportunities for passive and active recreation and the protection, safety of these all.

In our ecovillage, we are building a world in which we can live our lives safely, away from industrial activity, in a healthy environment, independently from any major system. Our own wells, closed water system, renewable energy system based on solar and geothermal energy, professionally organized and managed agricultural model farm based on organic farming provide the most important living conditions on an own, sustainable basis, including food production. Our prestigious building stock and establishments with recreational facilities enable a lifestyle of high quality. And this small, closed world is made maximally safe by elements and high-tech systems that provide not only relaxation but also physical protection.

The for ages functioning agricultural estate surrounding the ecovillage is the private property of the entrepreneur, who has dreamt and created the ecovillage. The 200-hectare area is cultivated with arable farming, viticulture, early vegetable and fruit production covering plant variety and animal breed typical of the Hungarian Great Plain landscape.



The for ages functioning agricultural estate surrounding the ecovillage is the private property of the entrepreneur, who has dreamt and created the ecovillage. The 200-hectare area is cultivated with arable farming, viticulture, early vegetable and fruit production covering plant variety and animal breed typical of the Hungarian Great Plain landscape. The orchard of one hectare grows cherries, sour cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, pears, apples, quinces, loquat, on another hectare blue and white grape vines are cultivated, while on several hectares of the vegetable garden peas, beans, potatoes, vegetables, carrots, radishes, pumpkins, beetroots, cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, dill, sorrel and spinach are grown. There are peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers raised in poly-tunnels in all weather, and wheat and maize in crop rotation system in the fields. The basis of the livestock consists of 10 gray cattle, 20 “racka” sheep and 50 poultry, which can be flexibly increased according to later needs. Fish farming takes place in the 5.2-hectare lake system, planted fish species, which can be fished: carp, bream, crucian, pike and perch. The estate is legally separate but concerning its operation it forms an organic unit with the ecovillage. The long-term cooperation-agreement with the ecovillage and the owner of the property guarantees that the high-quality organic food produced by the farmland (cereals, vegetables, fruit, eggs, freshly caught fish or freshly cut meat, partially or fully processed meat products) is available at all times or can be purchased by homeowners at any time by prior arrangement. Sylviculture ensures the supply of wood to the ecovillage, which on the one hand provides a visual and leisure program element (for heating of fireplaces, for barbecue parties, for summer evening campfires) and on the other hand provides raw materials for the heating backup system if necessary.

The location plan

When allocating the plots, we paid special attention to the terrain of the area on the one hand, and to the ideal orientation and the necessary, discrete distance of the houses to be built (free from disturbing proximity and sounds), on the other hand. We have planned only ten houses in the ecovillage. The slightly undulating area provided an opportunity for the houses to stand out from their surroundings and to be sunny due to their southern orientation, following typically the historical and cultural traditions, overlooking the lake system and community space. The boundaries of the plots are marked only by loose-structured bushes and shrubs, ensuring the experience of freedom provided by the spacious spaces. Recreational facilities such as the polyurethane running track on the top of the embankment, the walking path around the lake system, the small island, the Bridge of Moses, the observation point in the middle of the lake, the piers, the boat dock, the barbecue terrace and the sports facilities are planed into the public spaces, so they can be used by all residents.

Details and plot selector


We plan to build only ten houses in the ecovillage. Our architects have therefore developed ten different basic house-types, having regard to the architectural unit of the ecovillage with the same philosophy, along the principles of visual and material use, but with slightly different solutions in size and appearance. The size and orientation of each plots is suitable for any of the ten basic house types, so after selecting a plot, any of the chosen basic house-types can be built on any of the plots. Any chosen basic house type can be expanded in a module system based on individual needs and can even be fundamentally redesigned as an option. We present all ten of our basic house types from two sights. Our building materials are landscape-friendly, redesigned versions of the traditional materials, according to the current trends: variations of natural materials (maximum 3 types) white plaster + red tile, white plaster + anthracite tile or sheet metal, white plaster + brick + red tile, white plaster + brick + anthracite tile or sheet metal, white plaster + wood panels + red tile, white plaster + wood cladding + anthracite tile or sheet metal, wood panels + brick + red tile, wood panels + brick + anthracite tile or sheet metal.

The team that plans for the future

István Boda

László Mórucz

“As young architects, we found the outlined concept, that we listened to as a script, very exciting. Owing to the inspiring environment, the atmosphere of the ecovillage has come to life for us right for the first time. The Customer was open to modern, fresh ideas, so we were able to develop the design program together very smoothly. The dominant consideration of the designing process was the optimum use of the great view and the creation of spacious living spaces. The goal was to design neat buildings out of natural materials with contemporary spatial connections. We tried to design the buildings together with their surroundings, to create as many connections as possible between the inner and outer space, at the same time resolving the tension between them with transitional spaces, paying attention to the scale of the buildings. The motto of the project could also be: “Isolated from everything, yet in the greatest possible freedom.” The hill system surrounding the ecovillage, the huge plots, the location and orientation of the buildings all create and reinforce this safe, yet free feeling.”


The mastermind of the ecovillage is Mihály Silye. While formulating the basic concept and working out the details, he always kept in mind as an important trust-confirming element, that – in connection with the construction of the ecovillage – he would not implement his plan by establishing a project company, but rather his own firm, that have been functioning stable for decades, should provide the background for this project, as well. Thus, he is able to provide long-term guarantees for all interested customers for years and decades after the purchase.

Silye and Co. Ltd. has been a stable company on the Hungarian and international markets since 1997, with a diversified range of activities. Its main activity is the domestic and international transport of oversized consignments with individual transport equipment, and to carry out massive earthworks and civil engineering works with heavy earthmoving machines. Its reference works include the cultivation of the Mátra Power Plant’s tailings ponds, and the company also has a number of international certificates that guarantee the permanent high quality of its services (TÜV- 01MSZ EN ISO 3834-2 122 12 3114, CERTOP -01MSZ EN ISO 9001-2009, TÜV – 01 3/98 122 12 311, suitable for NATO supply). It has been performing agricultural activities since 2005. The company actively participates in the construction of the ecovillage not only as a coordinating contractor, but also as a building contractor: it carries out the construction of the lake system, the artesian well and the water supply system based on it, as well as the embankment system surrounding the ecovillage, with its own machinery and staff.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does pre-purchase start?

The project is currently in the phase of assessing individual needs. The area is available, the connecting road network, the well and the water system based on it are already in operation, the lake system are ready and the agricultural model farm has been in operation for 15 years. The concept is matured, the geodetic survey has been completed, and the first phase of architectural design has been accomplished. Financial resources are available for the implementation of the project. We are waiting for interested people and their questions and we can develop a further schedule of cooperation with all interested parties after assessing their individual needs.

When will the construction start?

The construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2021, after individual needs have been clarified and individual price calculations have been issued.

How many properties make up the housing estate?

The residential park will consist of ten houses, plus other landmarks and facilities that can be connected to the community spaces and protection functions detailed above. If the project is so successful that additional needs arise, the ecovillage will be expandable in module system, but this expansion will not affect the land and house allocation detailed above, it will not concern the area of the ecovillage under planning, the further expansion will fit into it at most outside of the current embankment.

At what price will the properties be available?

The exact price calculation of the properties is still in progress. As the concept of the ecovillage is unique and unprecedented in Hungary, many factors (circular protection, special connection to the agricultural model estate) have to be correctly priced, for which there are no templates or previously developed protocols. Furthermore, the pricing is influenced by the optional expansion and possible redesign of the basic house types selected by those interested. So, for the time being we can calculate only in target prices. We will be able to give a price divided into two sums, so it will consist of the price of the selected plot and the price of the house to be built on it. The total price will include the price of the common spaces and facilities, of course. The planned price per square meter of the houses is expected to range from 1.1 million to 1.5 million HUF.
