The water temperatures in summer reach almost 26°C make it warmer than the air in the mornings and evenings, and anyone who has stayed in a Lake Balaton property, Hungary, will tell you, there is nothing finer than relaxing on the beach in the evening, watching the sun set over the distant hills and tucking into a bottle of local wine, grown in one of the rich vineyards which surround Lake Balaton, Hungary.

The water of Lake Balaton was considered to be medicinal for many years due to the immense feeling you get after a swim.

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.

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