The “Hungarian Sea”, is the people’s name for the 50-mile long lake with silky green-yellow water in the middle of Transdanubia. Lake Balaton is one of Hungary’s most precious treasures and most frequented resorts. It is also the largest lake in Central Europe.
The region lying west of Lake Balaton occupies a unique place on the map of Hungary. Being the part of an important region from the point of view of tourism, that of Balaton, it is a favourite destination for both Hungarian and foreign tourists. As for its climate, it is a pleasant place, it may have the most predictable climatic character, and rarely do we have unsettled weather. As for the features of the terrain – it is Hungary on a small scale as tourists can find here gentle hills, extended flat plains, rivers, lakes.
Keszthely, a city of grand town houses perched at the very western end of Lake Balaton is hands-down one of the loveliest spots to stay, far removed from the tourist hot spots on the lake. You can dip in its small, shallow beaches by day, absorb its lively yet relaxed ambience by night and get a dose of culture by popping into its handful of museums and admiring its historical buildings. Whatever you do, don’t miss the Festetics Palace, a lavish baroque home fit for royalty.
More than twenty thousand years ago nature presented our settlement with a unique treasure. The green heart of Hévíz is the 4 hectare lake, which is the biggest thermal lake of the earth being suitable for bathing. We share this treasure and alongside with it the experience of health with all our visitors. Therapeutical activities are based on 200-year old experience and it is no wonder that the so- called medicinal weight bath was born in Hévíz, which is used all over the world nowadays.
Hévíz and its surroundings are unique in the sense of having specific atmosphere, intact natural resources, cultural values and the hospitality of people living here. The well-known healing effect and life-giving stroking of the lake, a romantic dinner in the line of the wine cellars, a walk under the alder trees in Egregy, the sight of the water-lilies and traditional hospitality mean all together the “Hévíz experience.
