Things to do on holiday in Lake Balaton, Hungary

Lake Balaton is a tourist favourite for many reasons. The warm waters of the lake provide a refreshing way to cool down in summer, attracting visitors to the lake beaches throughout the summer. 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. Property anywhere around the banks of Lake Balaton will place you in stunning scenery, and within striking distance of a Lake Balaton beach.

There are an amazing number of sporting activities possible from a Lake Balaton holiday home. Water sports thrive, from water-skiing to windsurfing, and the hills which surround the lake are ideal for walking, horse riding and even golf. Lake Balaton golf courses are very undulating, and quite unforgiving, offering any golfer staying in a Lake Balaton property a real challenge and some wonderful views. The hills are also a wonderful location for hunting, and there are plenty of guides available to help you during your stay in a Lake Balaton property.

The water of Lake Balaton was considered to be medicinal for many years due to the immense feeling you get after a swim. However, having been tested, it is not the water which has healing properties, but the mud which lines the bottom. As a result, there are some fantastic spa facilities around the lake. Taking a Lake Balaton property in Heviz, Buzsak, Tapolca or Zalakaros is the ideal plan for a really relaxing holiday to get pampered.

A little reluctant at the beginning, but the overall process was extremely simple and the Owner, Laszlo KOLES was very helpful throughout. As for the property.. Well, what you see is exactly what you get. A beautiful home extremely well situated near Lake Balaton. The home is in excellent condition and includes all necessary amenities for a restful vacation. Exactly 90 minutes from Budapest, near to small markets, restaurants and beaches. Staying at this house permitted us to "day trip" the entire Balaton region. Taking possession of the home on our arrival date went great. The owners were on time and the house was spotless. They took the time to explain all the important details about the appliances, pool and point out the best local restaurants and points of interest. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone travelling to the Balaton region. Whether it be a family looking to relax by the pool, or sight-see the region, you will not be disappointed. We're already looking forward to reserving for next year!

The gardens are very safe (all fenced in from the road, and even the road is a single track so very little traffic.) I have 2 children aged 18 months and 3 years. They spent hours playing with the ride-on toys, on the swings and slide and in the sand pit. The town is also lovely. An easy train ride to Budapest and only 1 hours drive to Croatia. The lake is beautiful and the massive Tesco store on the edge of town is very convenient. This place is perfect, particularly if you have children and need more space than a hotel room. We will certainly be back next year.

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