Description

The 5-bedroom charming luxury Villa Hanna, nestled in the quiet center of this ancient little village offers a true country-living experience set among vineyards, lavender fields, oak trees and farmlands in the Dörgicse Basin. Located just five kilometers from the North shore of Lake Balaton, in the heart of the Balaton Uplands region, you are in an ideal spot to discover and enjoy Hungary's most beautiful holiday destination.

Stepping through the green shutter doors into the hallway of Villa Hanna a fully equipped, friendly kitchen welcomes you. To your left is the living room: its high ceiling with exposed beams, the stone wall and the comfortable sofas invite you to hang out, watch a movie or just read a book after an eventful day. From the kitchen to the right, the adjoining dining room and its large dining table make a great place for a get together. A guest toilet and sink is also located in this part of the house.

Moving on in the L-shaped house the master bedroom with double-bed and ensuite bathroom, and two more bedrooms follow (another bedroom with double-bed and the kids' room with a Flexa bunk-bed), sharing a 2nd bathroom. As an extra feature, you can choose to shower in the open-air, glass-window summer shower that is in the heart of the house, in a small, pretty atrium between two bedrooms. The master and the kids' bedroom look to this yard, the third bedroom looks to the garden. Due to the old, thick stone walls and the wooden blinds in the bedrooms the house keeps cool for the summer too, it is between 20-23 °C (70-73 °F), therefore there is no air-conditioning.

From the dining room wooden steps lead to the open attic, where a great space was created for the youngsters in mind to play and sleep - a double bed and a single bed take another 3 guests comfortably in this upstairs bedroom.

The Garden:
The charmingly landscaped garden is tranquil, beautiful and well sheltered by the L-shape house and the rustic, original stonewall on the street side. Various spots were created to enjoy it: have your morning coffee by the main entrance, hang out by the 8 m long saltwater pool on extra-comfy sunbeds, dine out under the big walnut-tree or have a barbeque on the back terrace, right by the end of the house.
The owners, a chef/entrepreneur couple made sure that both kitchens come with everything you need to prepare a fantastic meal and the summer kitchen is geared with state-of-the-art equipments including a standing mixer, a sous-vide machine, deep-fryer, mincer and sausage-stuffer and even a Kürtőskalács-maker (an amazing Hungarian pastry often called chimney cake that you must try). For barbecues a Weber grill on the big back terrace will help you do the job. The small, private parking lot has space for two cars.

Right by the summer kitchen you will find the Studio and the small gym opening from the garden.
The Studio is a separate 'room', more like a little studio apartment with its own entrance - it is an extra bedroom with extra privacy. Here we have a foldable double sofa bed. It has its own full bathroom with shower and easy access to the summer kitchen right next door.
The gym has a treadmill, wall-bars and a few small free weights.

A small-size dog belongs to the owners' family. She is allowed to come in to the living area and the kitchen but she is not to enter any of the bedrooms. Also, she is walked frequently in order to keep the garden clean. If you would like to bring a pet, we need to check it with the owner first and a surcharge may apply. Please inquire before you book.

*Please note that for winter we charge extra fee for heating.

Please also note that this is non-smoking property. We provide ashtray for smoking outside only.

***

Please note that we are not accepting stag/hens weekends, bachelor parties, clubs of party people etc. as we are located in a peaceful residential area and the house in owned by a family with kids. Thank you for your understanding.

ENJOY THE BALATON AND THE DÖRGICSE BASIN'S CHARM

Perfect for relaxing and discovering the enchantments of the Balaton Uplands region and the Dörgicse Basin, this lovely self-catering luxury villa is the ideal boutique hotel alternative. Take a walk or ride through the gently rolling hillsides and visit the village's 13th century ruin temples and marvel at the view of beautiful Lake Balaton. One to three hours tracks to all directions offer pretty villages with nice local restaurants, artisanal vineries, beautiful landscapes and tranquil walks (maps provided in the house). Head towards Vaszoly where you can take your lunch at tiny but great Zománc Bisztrocska, or Zanka to try the hype and tasty Neked Főztem (Cooked for You) gastro pub. In Dörgicse our favourite restaurant is Pántlika Porta with its own selection of wines and homemade bread - also a great source to stock up the wine fridge. For a local and hearty meal you can also try Granarius, a 1 min walk from the house.

One of Hungary's renowned Polo Club is at Szentbékálla (about 25 min. drive) where you can ride as well as practice polo upon request. The nearest Golf Course is at Balatonudvari, that is about 10 minutes drive.

Food and Wine: The local grocery store for milk and pastry is 1 min walk, Tesco and other big supermarkets are in Balatonfüred (20 min drive) or in Veszprém (25 min drive), but to stock up the best is to go to Akali to FÉK CBA Store (5 min drive).
You should not miss the farmer's markets that offer the regions specialities as well as healthy ingredients for home cooking on your holiday: Saturday mornings at Tihany and Sunday mornings at Káptalantóti. This region is part of the 7 great wine regions of Hungary and there are great cellars and vineyards to take wine tastings and tours: Káli Kövek at Köveskál, Figula at Csopak or Szeremley at Badacsonytomaj are all great choices, just to mention a few.

Lake Balaton: Villa Hanna is about a 5 minutes drive from Balaton's nearest beach, Akali, but you may also try the beach at Zánka or Fövenyes (with the best beach food in a small bistro called Kalóz). You are also a short 20 minutes drive from the lake's breathtaking village of Tihany or from the busy promenade and harbour of Balatonfüred.
