A Family getaway- relaxing green countryside escape from our urban bustlling life

5 of 5
An Easter weekend for the family of four, we turned off the electronics and enjoyed each other, explored artisanal farmer's markets, and experianced Easter in a hand painted chapel with glorious songs! The church chorus in Kapolcs was a wonderful discovery.... The underwater lake in nearby Tapolca was a memorable and mysterious place for learning for my awed children. We will escape again to this cottage...only 2.5 hours from Budapest. Oh the neighbors dog was a welcome treat too, for my pet starved children.

Back Again !

5 of 5
Our fourth time at Keith and Erica's villa and things just keep getting better. This time there was the addition of the games room with a great pool table to keep the family occupied, particularly when the weather decided to change on a couple of occasions, which is not too common in August. The villas standards remain very high and the cleanliness can't be faulted. Keith was again on hand to meet us on arrival and give us an update on things that have changed since our last visit. Would highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to experience Balatonfured and the surrounding area. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants as you make your way down to the strand via different routes, which are well worth exploring. Not sure when we'll be back again as next year we plan a city break in Budapest....but of course we'll be staying at Keith's apartment.
