Just outside the village of Csákvár, amidst the nature of the Vértes National Park, you will find this completely renovated and modernized holiday home with orchard and wine cellar. A gravel path leads you from the main road to the house.
Some weekend cottages are nearby, but the 'real' neighbors are the forest, deer, rabbits, foxes and birds. The house has been renovated as eco-friendly. For example, different natural materials are used, rainwater is used for sanitation and drinking water at a nearby village pump should be obtained.
If you want to escape the daily hustle and bustle then this house is the ideal choice. Experience the unspoilt nature and a good glass of Hungarian wine while enjoying the campfire on the terrace or a beautiful starry sky! There is no internet connection in the house. If you want internet, then we can buy a pre-paid sim in Budapest with local number and buy data. Alternatively, you can use Wi-Fi at some locations in the village.
Are you looking for a more active holiday? A beautiful nature walk, water fun or a city trip to Budapest? The location of the house offers you many possibilities.

Day programs from Csákvár:
Located on the village edge (on the road towards Gánt) is the start of a beautiful hiking trail; This well-marked route (follow the green 'oak leaves') leads you through a unique nature area with many local flora and fauna. During the walk you will be rewarded with two hill tops where you can enjoy a beautiful panorama.
Further on the road just outside Gánt is on the right a mining museum; The Vértes mountains are rich in bauxite which forms an important ore for aluminum. The museum is next to a mine that is no longer used.
In the direction of the M1 motorway (direction Tatabánya) are the following sights; In the town of Majkpuszta (near Oroszlány) is an ancient monastery. The monks lived in small houses next to the monastery, some of which are nowadays visible from inside. From here, follow the road towards Tatabánya and take the exit towards Várgesztes where a visit to the old fort, deep in the hills and forest is definitely worth the effort. From the fort you have a beautiful view.
The town of Tata is just across the M1 motorway. Take time to have a nice cup of coffee with cakes sitting under the old plane at Platán Restaurant and enjoy the view of the lake.
South of Csákvár, in a bad 20-minute drive, is the less famous but beautifully built baroque-style capital and bishop city of Hungary; Székesfehérvár. With its baroque city center, completely renovated spa and shopping center, Székesfehérvár is an ideal short city trip. For a culinary experience, you must definitely be here at the award winning restaurant '67'.
For a day of fun in and on the water, it is a 20-minute drive from Csákvár to Velencei-tó; (Velence more). This great natural lake offers something for everyone; From slides, pedalos and water skiing, to relaxing on the beach. Eating a 'sült hedge' (fried hake) on the beach certainly contributes to the Hungarian holiday feeling.
A little further but still well accessible are Veszprém (66 km) with its historic center and beautiful zoo and the well-known Lake Balaton (80-160 km) surrounded by idyllic towns in the north and the partytown Siófok in the south. The north side of Lake Balaton is also an important wine region, especially the white wines are worth trying.
Finally, Budapest can not be missed in this overview. 60 km from Csákvár with excellent highway link (M1) lies this beautiful capital of Hungary.
We are a Hungarian-Dutch travel traveler, living in Budapest. We use the house as a get-away of the big city. Over the years we have transformed the house and the garden into a small oasis. Initially for personal use, but encouraged by the enthusiasm of friends and family, we decided to share it with others. With people who are looking for a place in nature, rest and maybe themselves, but want to be comfortable.
