About the property

7 bedrooms, 13 people

The former barn belongs to the old thatched roof farmhouse - now our guest house with seven lovely furnished rooms and the old horse stable with arches and pillars - now our living room, which offers a unique ambiance for artistic events, courses and seminars. Due to the unique acoustics, it is particularly good for music. The covered outdoor area overgrown with vines, invites you to have breakfast and to have cozy get-togethers during the evening. On cooler evenings, the fire in the open fireplace provides for a comfortable setting. Next to the outdoor area, a small communal kitchen offers you the opportunity for self-catering. In the 4000 m2 garden, walnut and fruit trees offer shade. Those who would like can prepare goulash on an open fire or celebrate a grill party. You have the option of ordering a rich breakfast. We are always gladly available to help our guests at any time with suggestions and good tips.

Highlights: We are happy to help with the organization of events and family festivals. Courses from different providers like painting, cooking, yoga or music courses are regularly offered in Dörgicse. The landlord would be happy to make contact with the organizers for you.

Fantastic yoga and relaxation holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful, relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting at Landhaus Dörgicse. The stone buildings stay remarkably cool during even the hottest days of summer and the exquisitely designed garden is well shaded by the many walnut trees. The famous Lake Balaton with all its cultural sights and great swimming is only a few minutes' drive away and there is no shortage of restaurants in the area to sample the rich Hungarian cuisine. There is something to suit every taste, especially freshly caught local fish. The best part, however, is the great hospitality you receive at this location: bed and breakfast at its very best. The breakfast includes everything you can imagine, especially delicious fresh local fruits and great scrambled eggs – not to mention the freshly baked rolls – and all served with a genuine smile you won't forget. Thank you Elisabeth, we will definitely be back :)

Great summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 1 week stay at this guest house with family and friends. It is perfect for a group like ours that can take most or all of the house. Nestled in a quiet residential community outside the village center, this rustic house features 6 rooms (a 7th is in the owner's house) in a renovated stone barn, each with its own toilet and shower. The rooms were clean and well maintained and adequate for a week +/- stay. Bedrooms were set out in very cozy country style. The structure consists of 3 separate attached buildings: the bedrooms/baths, the kitchen/dining room, and the lounge, none of which are connected internally (this means you need to go outside to get to the adjacent sections). The dining area has 3 walls and where the fourth would be is open to the courtyard. This posed no problem for us as the weather for us was warm and dry but might be inconvient in the event of cool or rainy weather. The dining area featured the fireplace indicated in the photo and we used it every night! The owners provided us with firewood and candles and this made evenings very charming. The kitchen does not have an oven or microwave but otherwise was complete, and a portable charcoal grill was available. The lounge contains the pictured piano and has seating for a number of people and could serve as a dining room in inclement weather. The owners were very accommodating and helpful, but it helps to speak either German or Hungarian. They live in the thatch-roofed farmhouse across from the courtyard and were available but not intrusive. The grounds were well maintained and attractive. A car is necessary to get to the nearest stores and attractions since the property is located in the hills above Lake Balaton. Local roads led to several hiking trails offering a variety of environments (woods, fields, pine forest, vineyards, etc) and some nice vistas. If you go there, make sure to visit the abbey ruins in Dorgicse proper as well as the castle ruins in nearby Nagyvarsony. A public beach (access fee) on Lake Balaton is about 5 km away in Balatonakali which has restaurants, playground and water activities great for kids.

Yogaurlaub in Ungarn

  • 5 of 5

Das erste Mal war ich hier mit meinen Kindern vor 4 Jahren. Und sowohl meine Kinder, als auch ich waren begeistert von dem herrlichem romantischen Haus, dem großen liebevoll gepflegten Garten, und den freundlichen und fürsorglichen Besitzern.

Die beiden letzten Jahre war ich nun mit einer Yogagruppe im Haus Dörgicse, und es war wieder einfach nur traumhaft! Morgens ,nach unseren Yogaübungen, die wir bei schönem Wetter im Garten, oder wenn es regnete im gemütlichen "Pferdestall" mit eingeheizten Kamin, machten, erwartete uns ein reichhaltiges leckeres Frühstück, das keine Wünsche offen ließ. Wenn wir nicht gerade meditiert, getanzt, gemalt oder relaxt haben, konnten wir kleinere Ausflüge in die herrliche Umgebung des Balaton machen. So besichtigten wir z.B. Balatonfüred, die Porzelan-und Keramikfabrik in Herend, die Halbinsel Tihany, oder einen der schönen Märkte in der Gegend. Unsere charmante Gastgeberin, organisierte uns sogar einen Ausflug nach Budapest, samt Bus und Fremdenführung. Unser Abendessen nahmen wir in den von Ihr empfohlenen Lokalen ein ( die Csarda mit den musizierenden Zigeunern ist der Hit!!!) oder wir wurden mit ungarischen Spezialitäten , z.B. Kesselgulasch und hauseigenem Weißwein von Ihr verwöhnt.

Nächstes Jahr kommen wir bestimmt wieder!!!

Herrliches gepflegtes Haus * herzliche Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Das großzügig angelegte Anwesen mit seinem schönen Garten, wo Walnussbäume Schatten spenden, lädt ein es sich auf einer der zahlreich vorhandenen Relaxliegen bequem zu machen. Rosen und Lavendel duften rund ums Haus. Die Zimmer sind sehr liebevoll und mit Geschmack eingerichtet (ein jedes anders). Sowohl der Freisitz als auch der Wohn-/Aufenthaltsraum geben den richtigen Rahmen für gemeinsames Essen oder Seminare. An kühlen Abenden wird der gemütliche Kachelofen angeheizt und man kann ein (deutsches) Buch aus der umfangreichen Bibliothek lesen. Auch wunderschöne Bildbände sind dort zu finden. Ein Auto ist allerdings erforderlich, will man die Gegend um den Balaton erkunden.

Die Gastgeber sind sehr herzlich und immer auf des Gastes Wohl bedacht. Ich kann diese Unterkunft sehr empfehlen.
