Welcome to the picturesque village of Helesfa. This village of 300 inhabitants is ideally situated in southern Hungary, between the historic cities of Pécs (25km) and Szigetvár. It lies in the foothills of the Mecsek Mountains, in the Zselic National Park. The neighboring hills are dotted with old wine houses which overlook vineyards and orchards. In the valley a small freshwater stream runs toward the nearby lake of Helesfa. The cottages will welcome you to the area, whether you are looking to discover rural Hungary by bike (or on horseback or on foot), planning to sample the award winning wines of the region, or just dreaming of a quiet week with friends or family in a traditional rural environment.
The cottages have received "3 sunflowers" - the award given by Hungarian Village Tourism. At the estate there is a playground (swing, sandbox and a separate area where children can draw), barbecue and fireplace, a picnic area, football/badminton field, and a lot of animals! Part of the estate is a 2-hectare fruit garden on a grape hill.
Here you can buy (depending on the season): fresh eggs (chicken, duck, goose), goat milk, goat cheese, mangalica (pig) sausage/ham, honey, and fruits and vegetables. Bicycles (3 mountain bikes for adults) are available to rent.
This solid brick building used to function as a barn earlier in the last century. Now it is a holiday accommodation suitable for 6-8 persons. It has central heating so it may be rented in winter as well. With the present arrangement it welcomes its guests with a newly added bathroom (with bathtub, toilet and sink), refurbished kitchen (well-equipped with a fridge, microwave oven, gas cooker, electric kettle, coffee maker, dishes and cutlery), living room, separate bedroom (for three persons) and a new pine galleria which functions as a second floor offering another bedroom furnished with a double and two single beds.
The accommodation has an outdoor (covered) playground (with swing and sandbox) and a picnic area with a barbecue and fireplace.
