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.
