The 3 floor barn was built the early 1900’s and was used to store grain. It was turned it into a guest house, respecting its unique traditional character. The original wooden structure was preserved (including beams, floors and ceilings), which makes the atmosphere very warm.
Step into the welcoming breakfast room with the original beam ceilings, a traditional deep green tiled stove and a long wooden table to seat 10. The kitchen is also on this floor, a serving window helps easier access to anything you may need from the kitchen while enjoying your breakfast, dinner or a glass of delicious wine from the owners' cellar.
The bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The 2nd floor rooms have king-sized double beds and one of them has a bathroom with a beautiful wood-covered bathtub.
The rooms open from a cosy living room with armchairs and a sofa. It is very sunlit and airy, as its ceiling is partially open between the floors and the sun shines through the rooftop windows. The television and video set is discreetly placed in an old cupboard here.
The 3rd floor rooms in the attic come with 2 bedrooms and showers. There is a guest bathroom under the staircase going to the 3rd floor with toilet and sink. All decoration and furnishing come from the owners’ collections and are carefully picked to create a cosy and warm atmosphere and help you feel very comfortable.
Nature and nature tours:
The Bat Barn is very well situated for visiting the natural treasures of the region. The Balaton National Park, the Danube-Drava National Park and the Boronka Regional Park are all within an hour’s reach.
Inner Somogy, an area that stretches from Lake Balaton in the North to the River Drava in the South, is a region famous for its large forests, fish-ponds, and wildlife. It is also a bird area of European importance. The rare species that can be found here include the White-tailed Fish eagle, the Black and White Stork, and the Ferruginous Duck.
Somogy County has a rich cultural heritage. A large number of museums and galleries can be found here. Many of these were the homes of famous Hungarian painters such as Rippl, Rónai, Vaszary, Zichy and Kúnffy, or poets such as Berzsenyi.
They have now become galleries or museums housing their work. They are for the most part small but thanks also to the overgrown old gardens that surround them, they retain the charm of centuries gone bye.
South-West Hungary is famous around the world for its thermal water. Many thermal baths can be found in the vicinity. The thermal centres of Héviz, Zalakaros, Nagyatád and Buzsák Csisztapuszta can all be reached in less than an hour.Furthermore, the town of Marcali has recently build a new thermal facility just 8 km away, which includes a large outdoor swimming pool.
The region is known especially for its red deer, but roe deer, wild boar as well as pheasant, hare and duck can be shot here. In conjunction with the local shooting societies we organise shootings for the guests.
