Overview

West Transdanubia Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

With sauna,swimming lake,fireplace,pooltable and many games,internet,cable TV...

The house is located in a tiny village near the Austrian-Slovenian border. From one side it is surrounded by pine trees, from the other by a long green pasture, running from the veranda with far reaching views down through the valley and up to the nearest neighbour a half mile away. It is set far from all clamour of the city, yet is fully equipped – a luxurious resort in a beautiful and intact region. With 6 bedrooms the house provides accommodation for 14 guests. It is equipped with a Finnish sauna and cold water tub; a game room, awaiting the guests with a pool table, table soccer, and a poker table (numerous board games, poker and mah jong set); the storeroom is prepared for table tennis or darts matches. Also sets of badminton, croquet and pétanque are available. The artificial swimming lake, the volleyball court belonging to the property, and the soccer field next to it complete the list. Computer, broadband Internet access and sat. TV ensure that rural won't mean isolated too.

About the location: Lying in the heart of the „Vendvidék” – the historical region where Hungarian Slovenians live in Western Hungary – upon the hills, the Vend Guesthouse was built in the lovely village of Apátistvánfalva. The region is on the Hungarian-Austrian–Slovenian border. It's a wonderfully clear and intact region. Many say that here even the sun shines brighter. The birds sing beautifully, and nature’s calmness is not disturbed by loud traffic here. Far from the clamour of the city, the house is a shelter where travellers breath the fresh air of pine forests. The village to which it lies near to is calm and quiet at all times. However it’s only 10 minutes and we find ourselves in Szentgotthárd, a quiet and lovely town with all amenities - shopping, cinema, restaurants, bars and cafes. There is also a 24 hour medical service available and a pharmacy.

You choose wisely coming to us, no matter whether you are looking for the one of kind calmness of this region, which your soul has been longing for sitting in a neon-lit gloomy office, and just want to sit outside in an armchair listening to birds singing on the trees or if you would like to spend a holiday enjoying refreshing activities - just look at the list of things we offer on this page. We had guests who praised the opportunity to play ball games outside or ping pong inside, and nearly everyone favoured the breath-taking walks or bicycle rides in the forests around.

Weather: The region lies at the feet of the Alps and is often called sub alpine. This implies that the weather is that of a continental area, with 4 seasons largely varying in temperature, however mostly mild.

The region has a particular beauty at all seasons of the year. Springtime the freshness of the green pastures and coniferous forests is matchless. Summertime the weather is hot and ideal for many sports, for sunbathing or for a swim in our lake. Autumns bring an enchanting melancholy - a jaded sun looks over the fog covering the valleys, hiding the grazing roe deer. At the feet of the evergreen pine trees the most delicious mushrooms grow. During wintertime it often snows: we can put on the skis, the ice-skates and bring the sledge from the garage.

GREAT PLACE TO BE

  • 5 of 5

My familiy stayed or two weeks at this great place. We were at the maximum 7 adults and 4 children, but had always enough space to be. The house is really nice, especially the living room and the playroom with the tablesoccer and billiard. But in summertime when we were there we did not use it so often.

The equippement in the kitchen is great. If you love to cook it is good to. A little nice town with the most important shops is about 7 min by car, also a nice wellness-area, also for the kids.

The garden is absolutely great. We loved to swim in the pool. The kids loved to run and play around the house.

The environment is also very nice. It's calm and so you can relax super.

I can recommend it to people who love to live and like to have a lot of space in and out the house. Also for children it is great. It is really a great place to be.

Perfect place for a resting holiday

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here.

The countryside is perfectly peaceful, the town and the shops are close by car, and the house itself is truly have all the necessary tools for a comfortable stay.

I preferred the most going to the sauna, a short swimming in the pool, then pass the time playing pool or tablesoccer with my friends. The living room is big enough to watch a movie for all the people together who stays there. I loved taking long walks in the nearby forest, or at the board of the lake (approximately 15 mins. by bicycle).

I can warmly recommend it.

Beautiful landscape

  • 5 of 5

I had the luck to be here a couple of times during the summer and the winter too, and it’s always beautiful. I particularly like the house itself, it inspired me very much in my architectural studies. It’s always a pleasure to be here, and once you’ve been there, you never want to return to the city.

Beautiful Hungarian Countryside

  • 5 of 5

The scenery that the countryhouse sits on is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Its surrounding is so calm and tranquil, definitely the perfect getaway to destress. During our stay in the amazing house, we played all sorts of games like ping pong and pool, had turkish bath, sauna and a hell lot of fun. The awesome experience even made me want to get myself a country house just like that !

Delightful country retreat with modern convenience

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very pleasant two weeks at the end of August at this substantial and well equipped country house. The situation of the house is perfect. Sited in extensive grounds overlooking a peaceful wooded valley and rolling hills, the terrace is ideally angled, capturing sunshine from early morning through to late afternoon. The grounds nearest to the house are well maintained, providing a generously spaced combination of large open grassy areas, stretches of fruit trees (plums), an enclosed organic fruit and herb patch (rosemary, basil, tomatoes, blackberries, rhubarb) as well as a very nicely constructed swimming lake with sun deck at either end. As a family of swimmers it was great to find that the lake was large enough to stretch out and swim properly. Families with very small children would need to take care around the lake, but for older children and anyone who likes open water swimming (or triathlon) the lake provides enough space to keep the swimming muscles in shape. There is also a nice lane and leisure pool at the nearby Szentgotthárd if you want to stick to a more regular training routine and/or have splashy fun with the smaller kids. ?rség, the hilly national park area surrounding the house, is peaceful and well suited to long bike rides on roads with low traffic levels. The house itself is very liveable, providing ample space for a large extended family, or groups of friends. We celebrated an anniversary and for part of the two weeks had a family gathering of 16 which was catered for comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped, enabling preparation of meals for a large group, and there is a generously sized larder. The layout of the house is well designed, separating the sleeping areas from the main living room, dining room and games room, so that staying up enjoying the company of family and friends is possible in comfort long after the kids have gone to bed. The house has satellite TV and wifi which gave reliable and fast web connectivity (except once after a particularly large and impressive electrical storm). Whether nursing a coffee on the terrace in the morning sunshine, watching the frogs and dragon fly on the lilly pads in the swimming lake, sitting out under the stars admiring the splendour of the milky way, or getting up early to watch a family of deer stroll across the grass, for a peacful getaway to exercise, relax, kick-back and enjoy some quality time with family and friends, this country house fits the bill perfectly.

Perfect place for countryside holidays

  • 5 of 5

In the recent years I had the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of this lovely country house near to the Austrian-Hungarian border several times.

About the house I can say only the best. I was completely satisfied. From the well equipped kitchen, through the high-speed internet connection to the cable TV you can find everything. I would like to highlight the sauna, which is really high quality and well maintained. The house is tremendously spacious, so it could be a good choice even for larger families or companies.

The location is hardly accessible without a car, but that’s what makes it so quiet and calm. It’s an excellent choice not just for those who want to relax and enjoy the countryside, but for the ones who prefer hiking, cycling in the mountains or swimming in the lake nearby. Because of the proximity of the Austrian border and the Alps, at the winter it’s also possible to visit ski regions such as Semmering-Stuhleck.

I hope I will have time to visit the Vend Guesthouse again as soon as possible!

Half-hidden among the trees,the Vend Guest house can be reached only from a graveled road. At the feet of the Alps the location is marked by coniferous forests with many wild animals, green pastures, brilliant sunshine, fresh air. The hilly region is great for hiking, road cycling and mountain biking. It is possible to hunt boars, deers and many other kinds of animals. In nearby forests boars, deers, games and many other animals can be hunted.

15 minutes by car and we arrive to Austria. For a short trip to visit our Austrian neighbours you can go to the beautiful Graz, but the wonderful Vienna isn’t that far away either.

With many ski resorts near to the border, the house is a great starting place for ski tours to Austria or Slovenia during wintertime. Four splendid spas are no further from the house than 30 minutes by car. For those longing for more activity one can try golf in Loipersdorf and hot air balloon rides in Austria, near to the border.

Other Activities: horse riding in the village, soccer field next to the house, hot air balloon and quad rides, spas and water parks

Ski: Several ski resorts near to the house. Visit Hebalm or Semmering in Austria or go and try the Slovenian slopes! Great starting place for occasional ski trips, and the sauna and the fireplace awaits you after a long day of winter sports!
