Discover the Hungarian Sea with a holiday home by Lake Balaton
The largest freshwater lake in Central Europe, Hungary’s Lake Balaton is a great destination for families seeking a memorable summer beach break. As well as giving you easy access to sun and sand, a holiday house is the perfect base for exploring the other delights the region has to offer. From the romantic vineyards on the lake’s northern shore to the open plains of nearby Vertes Nature Park, a vacation at Lake Balaton offers something for all ages and interests, ensuring you'll not be short on activities to dive into.
Fun both on and off the beach
With the region's warm climate and a water temperature that averages at 25°C in the summer, Lake Balaton is like a Mediterranean oasis tucked away amidst Hungary's fertile mountains. Its placid waters and sandy beaches make it a great vacation spot, where you can enjoy swimming, sailing, fishing and water sports. On the southern side of the lake, popular resort towns Siofok and Balatonmariafurdo are home to many holiday rentals, with charming villas and apartments available. Rent a holiday home while at Lake Balaton and encounter more than the lake's shimmering waters. Along the mountainous northern shore lies one of Hungary's major wine regions, and the hills are dotted with opportunities to sample some of the country's best wine. The nearby Tihany Peninsula is also home to quaint, historic villages that deserve a visit.
Day trips from your holiday home by Lake Balaton
When you book a holiday house, you can also venture further afield. The inviting prairies of the Vertes Nature Park are perfect for horseback riding and hiking, whilst the romantic cobblestone streets of the capital city Budapest are less than two hours' drive away. Whether you're up for a day of sand and sun at Lake Balaton or exploring historical sites in the surrounding area, booking a holiday rental through the trusted site TUIvillas.com ensures that you'll always have a private and comfortable space to come home to.
