“Anna`s cottage is very cosy and comfortable. The kitchen is small but super functional. We spent 5 days with our 1 year-old and it had everything we needed (including a brand new crib, a baby high chair...). We enjoyed the garden a lot. Anna was very easy to talk to and welcomed us with a pie, cherries from the garden, jams... it was a very nice attention ! As for the location, if you like hiking in the woods, and if you are looking for a place a little remote, this cottage is perfect ! there is a very nice trail you can start just in front of the house (the wild garlic trail - and indeed it was FULL of wild garlic), and a look-out tower. with an amazing view. It is quite close to Kis Balaton, and ideal to visit the Tapolca Basin.”

“Dezső was a great host who warmly welcomed us, and provided us with all the information we needed to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. He told us about a nice restaurant nearby and we found some more tips he provided in the apartment including one for a fantastic coffee shop not far away. The unit has everything you could need including a large kitchen, a very comfortable bed, floating devices for the Héviz lake, games, even HBO GO and Netflix. Although winter is off season for the whole Balaton area, we managed to have a really relaxing and enjoyable time with the light snow being a bonus since Budapest has been virtually snowless this year. There is still plenty to do from visiting museums or the lake cave to going for a soak and trying out some of the really nice coffee shops and restaurants. The location is also really convenient being so close to lake Balaton, Keszthely, Héviz and even all the major supermarkets. A large parking lot is in the front and it is a very safe place. Also the added bonus of the feel of living like a local during the stay. Highly recommended!”
Fully furnished cottage on the southern side of Mt. Saint George in one of the most beautifull wine countries of Hungary. Great wineyards like PAP Wines, 2HA, Gilvesy and Nyári are all in walking distance. Excelent, peacefull and relaxing place to chill out, 5 minutes drive from the lake Balaton (Szigliget is the nearest beach) and from the city of Tapolca. Wifi available.
“I am very glad that in the end we chose St. George's Hill and Zsolt's guest house as a destination and accommodation instead of the shores of Lake Balaton, because the surroundings and panorama are fantastic (the Hungarian Tuscany) and we were able to spend the holiday much more actively. Excursion, visit to the wine cellar, Szigliegeti Castle, Badacsony and even the beach took 3 days :) If you are looking for a bit more secluded, yet active recreation, I can only recommend this accommodation. We loved getting up to see the vineyards and watching the sunset from the porch with a glass of wine. The little cottage was also very cute and cleanliness awaited us, and Zsolt was helpful and answered all our questions quickly.”
