An enviable location
Surrounded by the lush forests of the Balaton Uplands National Park, the shimmering waters of Lake Balaton stretch for 50 miles in length, earning it the nickname of the ‘Hungarian Sea’. It’s an inviting destination for outdoor enthusiasts, boasting cycling trails, water sports and sailing yachts to charter. The Lake Balaton region is famed for its enchanting fairytale castles and fertile vineyards fit for an aristocrat. It’s easily accessible from abroad via the international Hévíz Airport only 15 minutes away, and is also within a two and a half hours drive of five European capital cities, including Vienna and Zagreb.
Many visitors are also drawn to the Balaton region for its spa and wellness facilities, particularly those surrounding the mineral-rich waters of Lake Hévíz. It’s Europe’s largest thermal lake, dotted with fragrant water lilies and warmed by hot water bubbling out of fissures below the surface. Water temperatures average 25°C in the winter and soar up to 36°C in the summer months, making it a pleasant year-round attraction. The ancient town of Keszthely sits a stone’s throw from Hévíz, and is also home to popular sights like the Balaton Museum and baroque Festetics Mansion.
