We built this house a few years ago next to the old family estate that Balint's family was able to reclaim in the 1980's. We live in the U.S. but spend our summers in Hungary. Six years ago we bought a vineyard on the hill across from our house and can now share Lavender House with others. We age our wines in the old family cellar, a property adjacent to our house. We are both artists and film-makers in retirement.

Balint Birkas purchased this cottage in 2001

This place is close to Balint's heart. He served as an altar boy for the priest who owned the land that the house rests upon. His father is buried in the cemetery next to the village church and just adjacent to the Birkas estate. The view is stunning. The local wine is superb. The people are friendly.

Lavender House is a traditional Hungarian country house on the exterior, but the interior is anything but. The house is filled with light and air. The proximity to the village and the surrounding countryside is excellent. Large windows, access to the out-of-doors, and ease of living are all conducive to a restful break from the modern world.

GREAT HOUSE, AMAZINGLY HELPFUL HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house of Butter and Bálint Birkás for two nights. The purpose of our stay was a family event. We had a terrific time at the house, thanks to Bálint Birkás' flexibility and help. He told us that they intended to rent the house as of the spring of 2013, however, since we contacted him with our enquiry, he made it possible for us even in October, 2012. The house is very cozy, well equipped and nicely decorated. I strongly recommend it for everyone, who would like to enjoy peace and quiet at a charming location and in a great house. We were also lucky to have the opportunity to taste Bálint's Pinot Noir '09, which will be kept among our nicest memories.

ERHOLSAME FERIEN IN SZENTBEKÀLLA

  • 5 of 5
Es waren schöne und absolut erholsame Tage.
Das Ferienhaus ist gemuetlich, sauber, mit allem Komfort, technisch alles super! Sogar Klima ohne Aufpreis. Das Haus ist auch im Sommer kühl (ohne Klima)
Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen bei Weitem übertroffen - alles war perfekt (2 Erwachsene 50j aus der Schweiz)
Wir wurden sehr gastfreundlich mit Wein und gerösteten Mandel empfangen.
Die Koordinaten sollte man am Navi speichen, um wieder zurück zu finden. Gleich nach der Kirche, ganz rechts unter der Weide durch, dann links den Teerweg 50 Meter hoch und links auf den Feldweg einbiegen. Das Haus sieht man erst dann ca. 100m vom Teerweg entfernt.
Das Gebiet ist praktisch lärmfrei, nur gelegentlich fährt mal jemand mit dem Fahrzeug zu den Häusern weiter oben.

Es ist sehr ruhig zwischen den Reben und Mandelbäumen. Es ist sehr viel Platz. Uns hat es auf Anhieb gefallen. Das einzige was fehlte waren 2 Liegestühle zum Sonnenbaden.
Uns hat der Markt am Sonntag sehr gut gefallen, er liegt am Waldrand in Richtung Tapolca nicht zu verfehlen. Um 10h sollte man dort sein, denn nach 13 Uhr räumen einige Händler ihre Stände bereits wieder ab.
Am Markt gibt es Verpflegung, Alt- und Neuwaren, Textilien (Handarbeit), Holzhandwerk, Kunsthandwerk u.v.m.
In etwa 12 km Entfernung liegt Tapolca, es gibt dort einige Sehenswürdikeiten und alle Geschäfte um einzukaufen. Man kann Höhlenfahrten machen mit dem Ruderboot.
Auch das Thermalbad Heviz liegt nur ca. 15 km von Szentbekàlla entfernt.

Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich - wir kommen gerne wieder einmal.
Es hat alles was es braucht, bietet viel Platz und es ist täglich eine Freude hier zu sein. Das Ideale für ruhige erholsame Ferien.

MOOI HUIS IN DE BERGEN

  • 5 of 5
Voor onze vakantie zochten we een huis in de bergen om tot rust te komen en te kunnen genieten van de natuur.

Na wat zoekwerk kwamen we uit op dit huis, omdat we ook internet nodig hadden vielen er al snel veel huizen af.

Het huis is erg mooi en heeft van binnen een beetje een jaren 60/70 uitstraling. We waren beide erg tevreden over de uitstraling en de sfeer van het huis.

Het huis ligt in de bergen en heeft een mooie tuin met lavendel en andere planten. Het uitzicht is ook prachtig, het is daarom ook zeer prettig gewoon een hele dag te relaxen in de tuin.

Omdat er ook een overdekte tafel is, kunnen ook mensen die snel verbranden (zoals ik) lekker zitten.

De eigenaar was erg vriendelijk en had zelfs een schoonmaakster geregeld zodat na een week het huis weer helemaal schoon was. Hij heeft ons ook de omgeving en zijn wijnvelden (en wijnkelder) laten zien. Dat was ontzettend leuk omdat je dan ook een goed beeld krijgt wat er allemaal in de omgeving te doen is.

Wij hadden onze hond mee en die kon ook prima z'n gang gaan in de tuin, er is plek genoeg om lekker rond te kunnen redden.

Wat wel minder was is dat het hele balaton meer verboden is voor honden, dus een dagje naar het strand met de hond zat er niet in.

Ik kan dit huis zeker aanraden en mochten we weer naar Hongarije gaan zou ik het huis zeker weer boeken.

Lavender House is located in the midst of vineyards dating back to the Roman times. Set in a national park, there is easy access to geological points of interest as this area is dotted with extinct volcanoes. There are classical concerts performed by world- renowned musicians during the summer months in the simple late-Baroque church in the village on Saturday evenings. The owners are vintners and are available for tours and tastings when on site.
