Holiday rentals on the shores of Lake Balaton

Considered a real inland sea by Hungarians, Lake Balaton is one of the natural jewels of Eastern Europe. Arriving in Siófok, the most important city on the lake, travellers will be able to admire a magnificent sun on the marina, enjoying holiday rentals with balconies and terraces. Along the south shore of the lake to the west, pleasant accommodation, where swimming pools are not uncommon, welcomes visitors seeking peace and quiet in the charming villages of Balatonkeresztúr, Balatonlelle or Balatonszemes, among others. There, the rest is total, in the heart of a preserved natural setting. A destination of choice for those who appreciate the calm and beauty of the great lakes.

Location and orientation

Lake Balaton, a breathtaking natural setting

Lake Balaton is one of the most beautiful destinations in Europe for nature lovers. After a relaxing swim in the waters of the lake, discover the Badacsony vineyards in the centre of the north shore, where you can taste excellent white wines while enjoying an exceptional lake setting. After this time of relaxation, head southwest of the lake to discover another one, Lake Héviz. Its thermal waters have been attracting visitors from all over the world for more than 200 years.

The historical heritage of Lake Balaton

But Lake Balaton is not only an exceptional natural destination. Its immediate surroundings are dotted with historic sites that will delight heritage lovers. On the north shore of the lake, the medieval fortress of Szigliget dominates the waters of the Balaton and offers a superb view of the surrounding countryside. The village is also worth a visit, it perfectly embodies the Hungarian way of life. The Benedictine Abbey of Pannohalma, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has one of the most beautiful medieval libraries in Europe, with more than 300,000 volumes. Located a little further north from Lake Balaton, it is worth a look. Lake Balaton will delight nature lovers as much as old stones, thanks to its charming atmosphere.

Travellers and activities

Lake Balaton as a family

The peaceful and quiet setting of Lake Balaton is ideal for a family holiday. Upon arrival in Siófok, the Bebo Aquapark allows children and their parents to enjoy the joys of the lake water. A few kilometres north of Balaton, the Veszprém zoo is one of the region's most popular family activities. There is no doubt that the little ones will enjoy the joy of swimming, quite simply, thanks to the beaches located all around the lake

Lake Balaton as a couple

The region's medieval and seaside history offers a perfect setting for a romantic getaway. Balatonfüred, the region's main spa, welcomes visitors to its spas and mineral springs and invites them to relax. Once relaxed, nothing beats taking Tagore Drive, to enjoy a moment together. From the Tihany peninsula, located not far from the centre of the lake, emanates a bucolic atmosphere. The ideal place for a stay for two under the sign of rest and cocooning.

In winter, Lake Balaton freezes completely and offers a completely different panorama. It then became the ideal place for ice chariot races. A world championship in the discipline was even held there in 2004.
