The family-run Aktiv Hotel Pension Villa Maria is only a 7-minute drive away from Heviz and a 15-minute drive from the town of Keszthely on the Balaton lake. Due to its central yet quiet location in a lovely natural setting, the Villa Maria is an ideal place for a relaxing stay. The big terrace offers superb views over the Balaton lake and is an inviting place to spend lazy afternoon hours. The rooms are nicely furnished and feature their own balcony or terrace. Wireless internet is available free of charge. Upon request, you will be pampered with a diverse and freshly prepared breakfast. On the large grounds of the Aktiv Hotel Pension Villa Maria you can find a swimming pool, a sunbathing area, BBQ facilities and a secure parking area (free of charge). The FlyBalaton airport is 20 minutes away from Villa Maria. You can be picked up at the airport or rent a car there. Several thermal baths and spas can be easily reached from the Villa Maria.
We stayed here because we couldn't find a booking in Keszthely (however we later found out there was plenty of accommodation so it's worth phoning directly one or two Guest Houses). The owners were friendly. The house was pretty but in a very remote location with no surrounding facilities (apart from a nudist camp next door and a small local shop). I would not recommend this place unless you have a car and are willing to pay more for the meals. Tthe prices for food were more expensive in this pension than in many restaurants in the surrounding villages and because the village did not have a restaurant we had no choice but to eat at the pension (the meal was nice enough though after a 12hour journey).
Lower the food prices would be a start. It is hard to find. We could not see Lake Balaton from the terrace.
We were presented with a plain double room instead of the apartment we had booked, meaning: no fridge, no kitchen, no washing machine etc. After complaining to the owner, the answer given to us was that the apartment price was meant for at least 2 weeks stay, which was not mentioned in the room description. We left after one night stay.
Beautiful location about 10 minutes from Heviz in a peaceful and quiet area. Spacious and clean room with great views on the hills around lake Balaton. The landlady was extremely helpful and friendly.
It was very difficult to find the hotel. Lack of information on the main road
The hotel is peacefull, and thats exactly what I was searching for
