|Property type||chateau / country house|
|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The house is located in a tiny village near the Austrian-Slovenian border. From one side it is surrounded by pine trees, from the other by a long green pasture, running from the veranda with far reaching views down through the valley and up to the nearest neighbour a half mile away. It is set far from all clamour of the city, yet is fully equipped – a luxurious resort in a beautiful and intact region. With 6 bedrooms the house provides accommodation for 14 guests. It is equipped with a Finnish sauna and cold water tub; a game room, awaiting the guests with a pool table, table soccer, and a poker table (numerous board games, poker and mah jong set); the storeroom is prepared for table tennis or darts matches. Also sets of badminton, croquet and pétanque are available. The artificial swimming lake, the volleyball court belonging to the property, and the soccer field next to it complete the list. Computer, broadband Internet access and sat. TV ensure that rural won't mean isolated too.
About the location: Lying in the heart of the „Vendvidék” – the historical region where Hungarian Slovenians live in Western Hungary – upon the hills, the Vend Guesthouse was built in the lovely village of Apátistvánfalva. The region is on the Hungarian-Austrian–Slovenian border. It's a wonderfully clear and intact region. Many say that here even the sun shines brighter. The birds sing beautifully, and nature’s calmness is not disturbed by loud traffic here. Far from the clamour of the city, the house is a shelter where travellers breath the fresh air of pine forests. The village to which it lies near to is calm and quiet at all times. However it’s only 10 minutes and we find ourselves in Szentgotthárd, a quiet and lovely town with all amenities - shopping, cinema, restaurants, bars and cafes. There is also a 24 hour medical service available and a pharmacy.
You choose wisely coming to us, no matter whether you are looking for the one of kind calmness of this region, which your soul has been longing for sitting in a neon-lit gloomy office, and just want to sit outside in an armchair listening to birds singing on the trees or if you would like to spend a holiday enjoying refreshing activities - just look at the list of things we offer on this page. We had guests who praised the opportunity to play ball games outside or ping pong inside, and nearly everyone favoured the breath-taking walks or bicycle rides in the forests around.
Weather: The region lies at the feet of the Alps and is often called sub alpine. This implies that the weather is that of a continental area, with 4 seasons largely varying in temperature, however mostly mild.
The region has a particular beauty at all seasons of the year. Springtime the freshness of the green pastures and coniferous forests is matchless. Summertime the weather is hot and ideal for many sports, for sunbathing or for a swim in our lake. Autumns bring an enchanting melancholy - a jaded sun looks over the fog covering the valleys, hiding the grazing roe deer. At the feet of the evergreen pine trees the most delicious mushrooms grow. During wintertime it often snows: we can put on the skis, the ice-skates and bring the sledge from the garage.

We had a really beautiful vacation at the VendGuesthouse.
The house was clean and everything was just as it looked at the pictures.
The surrounding was stunning and because there are no neighbours nearby we had a lot of privacy.
We are definitely thinking about coming back!
Wonderful quite place with a huge garden, Sauna, terrace, playroom and lots of other great things.
All of my invited friends and family were excited when the saw this lovely place and we had a great weekend together!
This won't be our last stay in VendHouse and we want to say thank you to Zoltan, Daniel and the hole family for their warm welcome.
We were a large group from Vienna and stayed at this gorgeous house over the weekend. From the arrival till we left, we had the perfect stay. The correspondence with the owner was very fast and always helpful and friendly. The hungarian man at the site showed us arround and checked that everything was to our entire satisfaction. The house itself is absolutely beautiful and perfectly clean and comfortable. Even if we were a large group, everyone had enough space for him/herself and could breath and relax. The kitchen was very big and equipped with more than we needed. The garden is huge and with the gorgeous lake in front it nearly looked cheesy (it the best way it could be!!). An absolutely juwel in Hungary!!
A very comfortable house for a holiday or a weekend. We have enjoyed our stay there and even decided to extend for two more days. I can only recommend it.
My familiy stayed or two weeks at this great place. We were at the maximum 7 adults and 4 children, but had always enough space to be. The house is really nice, especially the living room and the playroom with the tablesoccer and billiard. But in summertime when we were there we did not use it so often.
The equippement in the kitchen is great. If you love to cook it is good to. A little nice town with the most important shops is about 7 min by car, also a nice wellness-area, also for the kids.
The garden is absolutely great. We loved to swim in the pool. The kids loved to run and play around the house.
The environment is also very nice. It's calm and so you can relax super.
I can recommend it to people who love to live and like to have a lot of space in and out the house. Also for children it is great. It is really a great place to be.
I really enjoyed my stay here.
The countryside is perfectly peaceful, the town and the shops are close by car, and the house itself is truly have all the necessary tools for a comfortable stay.
I preferred the most going to the sauna, a short swimming in the pool, then pass the time playing pool or tablesoccer with my friends. The living room is big enough to watch a movie for all the people together who stays there. I loved taking long walks in the nearby forest, or at the board of the lake (approximately 15 mins. by bicycle).
I can warmly recommend it.
Half-hidden among the trees,the Vend Guest house can be reached only from a graveled road. At the feet of the Alps the location is marked by coniferous forests with many wild animals, green pastures, brilliant sunshine, fresh air. The hilly region is great for hiking, road cycling and mountain biking. In nearby forests boar, deer, game and many other animals can be hunted.
15 minutes by car and we arrive to Austria. For a short trip to visit our Austrian neighbours you can go to the beautiful Graz, but the wonderful Vienna isn’t that far away either.
With many ski resorts near to the border, the house is a great starting place for ski tours to Austria or Slovenia during wintertime. Four splendid spas are no further from the house than 30 minutes by car. For those longing for more activity one can try golf in Loipersdorf and hot air balloon rides in Austria, near to the border.
Other Activities: horse riding in the village, soccer field next to the house, hot air balloon and quad rides, spas and water parks
Ski: Several ski resorts near to the house. Visit Hebalm or Semmering in Austria or go and try the Slovenian slopes! Great starting place for occasional ski trips, and the sauna and the fireplace awaits you after a long day of winter sports!
