Egeraracsa is between Zalakaros and Kehidakustány and is about a mile away from Lake Kis-Balaton.
Keszthely is 15 miles away from Egeraracsa. The Festetics Castle became the symbol of the city. It is the third biggest and best-restored castle in the country, which can be visited even at night during summertime.
There are plenty of programmes to choose from. The walking street is often the location of festivals (from Spring to Autumn) that are held by the Lake Balaton Congressional Centre and Theatre.
For people who would like to spend their sightseeing peacefully, it might be a great idea to take a walk under the plane trees in the Helikon Park. Moreover, the “city of museums” offers a lot of historical and artistic sights to visit.
Zalakaros is a fifteen-minute drive from our guest house, it is one of the smallest cities in Hungary, which is known for its baths (thermal and spa). Zalakaros is very close to Lake Kis-Balaton.
Kehidakustány is also a fifteen-minute drive from the guest house, which is also known for its thermal water. The history of the thermal bath resembles the history of the other thermal baths in the neighbourhood, but people were not looking for oil, but for drinking water. In the end, the thermal water came to the surface.
Lake Kis-Balaton and the Egeraracsa Fishing Lake gives home to various species, we recommend it for people who would like to go fishing or take photos.
