About Our Home
September 08 - 15, 2012 Keszthely is situated on the Northern shore of Lake Balaton. With its rich history and cultural life and the splendid natural settings, Keszthely is often referred to as the Capital of the lake. The modern history of Keszthely dates back over 760 years,even though the area of the town has been continuously inhabited ever since the Roman Empire. You can lose yourself in the tranquil townscape and Lake Balaton or take a trip to the Keszthely Mountains, bath in the lake in the summer or discover museums, the theatre and the Festetics Palace (see the main photo). This apartment is located conveniently in Keszthely and is very close to the city center and Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Europe. Lake Balaton is very nice, the water is around 22-25 degrees. You can use the pool and sauna. The apartment is well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need. Fridge, cooker, microwave oven, plates, glasses, cutlery... There are two bathrooms, both with shower cabins. The apartment is spacious and there is plenty of storage space, including a large wardrobe. In case of bad weather travel to Hévíz, it is just 15 minutes drive from Keszthely. Go to the thermal lake, you will love it. Hévíz is a globally renowned spa town just a stone’s throw from Lake Balaton (the biggest inland lake in Europe), and it’s one of the most popular spas in Hungary. The thermal lake Hévíz is the world’s second-largest natural thermal lake – and the largest that is suitable for bathing. The hot springs feeding the lake of Hévíz are packed with therapeutic minerals, while mud dredged from the lake bed is used for face packs and other rejuvenating treatments.The water temperature averages a luxurious 33—35ºC in summer, while even in the depths of winter it never drops below 23ºC – meaning you can wallow in comfort as the snow falls all around. Rent an inflatable ring and bob on the surface as you sip a beer or lose yourself in a good book. There is a very good restaurant next to the apartment with an inside terrace, "Park Vendéglő". They have very good food, mostly Hungarian specialties. Prices are so cheap, you can come here every day, it is much better than cooking. The best restaurant in Keszthely is a Mexican restaurant on the main square. It has an outdoor terrace also. The food is really good, large portions and kind staff. It is recommended to book a table in advance, as it is crowded almost every evening. This is a good choice for families and for couples also. The area is very quiet, relaxing and cozy. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen. It is ideal for a family!
