He brought the summerhouse in the outskirts of Kaposvár, among the vineries in 1908. A park, arable, and meadows surrounded the house. It was the paradise for artists even when he bought it. The house had formed from 1868 for forty years when owned by the opera singer György Gundy. Gundy also gave the name Roma Cottage to the house since the cottage stood on the Roma Hill. Rippl-Rónai became a landowner in 1908. Later he brought four acres to the ten had he already owned. He kept cattle, horses, donkey, poultry, dogs, bees, and peacocks.
