Beautiful House

5 of 5
The house is lovely with nice gardens and pool area. Very well equipped. Plenty of sunbeds and outdoor eating facilities with BBQ. Quiet area about a 5 min walk to the lake. Bedrooms upstairs are very spacious, 1 with en-suite (2nd bathroom downstairs). Balconies off both bedrooms. Everything very clean. All you need for a self-catering holiday. The wine left for us on arrival was a nice thought. Janos & Christina, the owners, are very helpful with information about the area and there is also menus & local information booklets. We had a wonderful time here. September is very quiet here. A lot of the restaurants & activities are already closed for the season. The thermal lake in Heviz was great & also the thermal baths at Igal were good. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit Lake Balaton.

Me and my friends had a beautiful time here and I strongly recommend this property for my family and friends.
