Ipoly Hotel Boutique Rooms & Suites
Would you like to have the feeling of staying in a mysterious villa along one of Europe’s most beautiful lakes? At Ipoly Hotel Boutique Rooms & Suites by Lake Balaton you certainly will. The semi-luxury boutique hotel just a stone-throw away from Lake Balaton with a modern, one-of-a-kind appeal and approach. Ipoly Hotel is not only a boutique hotel, but also an imposing historical building in the centre of Balatonfüred. Since the beginning, the owners of Ipoly Hotel strived to combine the comfort and services of hotels with the intimacy and tranquility of apartments. Ipoly Hotel offers the possibility of real relaxation by utilising the unique features of the hotel, the perfect harmony of the location and the calm, extraordinary environment close to the lakeshore (with a balcony facing the lake, if you’re lucky).
A farm-to-table culinary pilgrimage: PAJTA
Leaving behind our urban lifestyles for peaceful tranquility has never been more desired or rather cherished than it is today. Whether chasing an intimate culinary experience or a long stroll in the realm of untouched nature, being actually able to slow down and be present seems to be the one thing we all strive for. Even if it’s a long journey to come to the ultimate slow-life, yet there are places that can give us the feeling of timelessness — even if just temporarily, such as the hidden countryside restaurant called Pajta (means barn). Pajta is the embodiment of the owners’ passion for the Őrség National Park close to the Austrian and Slovenian borders in Őriszentpéter, Hungary. The whole restaurant concept was made with care and respect towards reserving traditions, both in terms of architecture and cuisine, in order to fit Őrség’s landscape and Zeitgeist. Welcome to Pajta!
