About this location

The Central Transdanubia region

Lake Balaton is a beautiful holiday destination, much loved by Hungarians. The lake sits in a rolling landscape of volcanic hills, praised throughout the centuries by artists and poets. Charming villages and small towns dot the hills, while large parks are preserved for nature and the abundant local wildlife.


There is so much to try during your stay at the Phoenix Guest House!

There are many local attractions including:

* swimming and water-sports in the lake (15 mins walk from the house to the nearest beach)

* ferry and boating tours on the lake

* spas and wellness including the famous Heviz thermal lake

* local sightseeing including the house of Rozsa Szegedi, the monastery at Tihany, the Herend porcelain factory, and the castles at Szigliget and Sumeg

* excellent local restaurants and wine cellars offering traditional Hungarian cuisine

* amusements such as fairground rides, zoos, circuses and mini-golf

* hiking in the hills

* dedicated bicycle route circling the lake

* nature watching in the National Park that covers much of the northern hinterland of Lake Balaton, and the Kis Balaton nature reserve

* horse riding

* new 18 hole golf course nearby

We encourage and value all verbal or written reviews from our guests because by learning lessons from them we will continue to improve the quality of service we provide to future visitors.
However, the photographs that accompany this review were taken by our guests during their stay and are completely unrepresentative of the beautifully clean and tidy condition in which the property is always presented to each new guest.

"Truly excellent"

This is an excellent choice for a quiet, restful, and affordable holiday in beautiful surroundings. Badacsony is Hungary's very convincing answer to Provence, without the hassle. The guesthouse is superbly situated on the hill, overlooking a large vineyard and Lake Balaton. Scores of wine cellars and quality restaurants just a short walk away. Couldn't have asked for more from the hosts. Highly recommended.
