Destination: Lake Balaton or the Hungarian Sea
Time: First week of July
Travelling: BB#1 and BB#2, Husband, My Brother, his little girl alias my niece, My Parents and myself.
Lake Balaton is a freshwater lake in HUNGARY. It is the largest lake in Central Europe and one of Hungary’s foremost tourist destinations.
The mountainous region of the northern shore is known both for its historic character and as a major wine region, while the flat southern shore is known for its resort towns
We usually visit the southern shore but this time our destination was Balatonalmadi, located on the northern shore.
In Hungary lots of companies own accomodations by the lake, and workers can book rooms at these accomodations for a cheaper price. We booked 3 rooms at the accomodation for the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The accomodation consists of about 20 rooms, a lovely garden, a restaurant and another private beach located right on the lake, which can only be accessed by the people staying there. We got breakfast and lunch at the restaurant. The whole thing had a very friendly atmosphere and there were not many more guests there. Ofcourse it is not a 5 star hotel, for example there is no air conditioning and the furniture is pretty outdated but everything else was ok.The food was really good and plenty and most of the time even the kids ate it 🙂 For dinner we choose a different restaurant each night, so that was also fun.
Most days we just relaxed on the private beach, which was a really big green garden with sunbeds, chairs, ping pong table, playground and each room had its private locker that was big enough to go into it and change your clothes. The private beach was about a 3 minute walk from the accomodation so really close.
The private beach:
(Building a fort from sun beds and towels 🙂
A beach selfie 🙂 I am never good at selfies 🙂
One of the many desserts at the Academy restaurant. IT has apples in it. Yummy.
