In the mountains; Among nature
Hungary is rich in history and culture. It is the land of magnificent landscapes, gypsy music, open-air museums,Lake Balaton (on 20 minutes), numerous resorts, extended wine growing districts, wonderful traditional costumes, sunshine and beaches and many cozy cafes. Contrasts between the northern and southern shores of Lake Balaton are especially striking in the region of Somogy. The landscape is hilly and green, which makes it a fine hiking and cycling area. Somogy is a place where you can enjoy nature undisturbed and without limit, from day long hiking tours through the wild to horseback riding on the puszta; from moors full of birds to a delightful boat trip down one of the many rivers. In the village of Somogygeszti you will find an atmosphere of geniality, almost of a fairytale quality, as the time appears to stand still here. There is an old church in the village, a tiny supermarket, the community center, a small café and the Castle Hotel. At the Castle Hotel you can enjoy an exquisite lunch or dinner. If you dine there, you are also allowed to use the swimming pool. You can also go horseback riding in the vicinity. The surroundings are hilly and thus ideal for mountain biking and hiking. Among the sloping hills you can catch a glimpse of almost anything, for example an old village church or a primitive farm where time seems to have stood still.The accomodation is located on a 20 minute drive from the Romantic Balaton lake.
