Grand Balaton House

Kövagoörs, Balaton, Hungary

The Grand Balaton House is located on Lake Balaton in Hungary. The spacious farmhouse invites you to relax with all your senses: from the large private garden in the middle of the national park in the Kali basin to the largest Central European lake three minutes away.

From May, various bathing establishments invite you to swim there. The unique landscape of old volcanoes with unique vegetation allows you to enjoy a special natural spectacle: different bird species, no light pollution, a fantastic starry sky, good air, many animals such as deer, pheasants, partridges, golden jackals, foxes and rabbits that can be observed.

In the area there are peach plantations, old farmers' markets and in the garden a walnut and fig. There are several water sources in the area from which mineral water can be fetched. One of the most famous is the Theodora spring in Kekkut. There are various canisters in the farmhouse that can be used. The neighboring villages are all intact and largely consist of old farmhouses, as they did 150 years ago. Each village has a small supermarket, a post office and a bus station.

There are also various restaurants and winegrowing nearby. Sports activities such as swimming, tennis on a private court nearby. Horse riding can also be done in the neighborhood.

ArchitectureThe farmhouse was built 200 years ago with local stones. Conversions are made exclusively by local craftsmen and materials. The wooden furniture, for example, is refurbished again and again and has been a pleasure for guests for a long time. The current spacious living room was created from the former stable, otherwise the building structure from the past is completely preserved.

FoodThere are various markets in the region that buy food from small farmers and allotment gardeners. The quality speaks for itself and there is a large selection: from tomatoes to honey and truffles. Self-catering is on the agenda at the Grand Balaton House, as well as a fully equipped kitchen and an Italian espresso machine.
