About us

The villageVászoly

Vászoly is a wonderful village with 260 inhabitants in the heart of the Balaton Uplands National Park, 5 kms from the shore of Lake Balaton. The tiny valley in which it lies is modestly embraced with forests, streams, fresh water springs. The settlement is famous for its ancient oak forest, as well as the András Creek and the St. Jakab well. The well is located on the shores of a dearest lake that is nourished by numerous streams breaking through the lake. Many people say that the water has several healing effects. On the shore of the lake one can find the famous shaman's seat. The creek and the well were named after the patron saint of the village, St. James. Vászoly is one of the official stations of the European Camino de Santiago. The romantic lake features a water stage and auditorium, which hosts several art events in the summer, and serves as a venue for romantic weddings. The area's varied flora, fauna and relief make it ideal for observing nature, roaming or longer trips, sports on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. We are just a five-minute drive away from the beach in Balatonakali, two minutes from the Royal Balaton Golf and Yacht Club, ten to fifteen minutes from Tihany, Balatonfüred, close to the Káli Basin, Kapolcs, Bakony, Nagyvázsony and Veszprém.
