About our home

We can offer you a few weeks stay in our well-equipped and centrally located home in town Marcali.

Marcali:
An air-conditioned detached house with two bedrooms, two children rooms, two bathrooms, two toilets, two terrace, a big living-room, solarium, Xbox360 slim. Internet is also accessible with high speed. This house can be found in a typically Hungarian small country town, called Marcali. It is in a traffic-free quiet street lined with oaks. At the end of the street there is a park and it takes only a minute to get to the shops, post office, restaurants, cafes, banks and DVD library in the center. In the big garden of the house, which is 450 m2 and covered with grass, there is a pool and toys for children. The town has got a Local Museum, a Gallery, and a spa and swimming-pool with open air and indoor section. You can go horse-riding in the suburb, as well.

More about us

  1. We are Anita and Gabor, a married couple with one 16 years old girl, and two 12 years old (boy & girl twins) children. We are both professionals (German teacher and fireman) and enjoy travelling when able to get away. We have done a home exchange before in Nürnberg (2008), in Barcelona (2009), Brussel (2010), Reims (2011), Paris (2013) and Aix-en-Provance (2014) but are always keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchanges via email. Attention! Write simply, because I'm weaker in English, but we are good at German! You can write in this language too!

Marcali lies in the most popular tourist area of Hungary near the lake Balaton where you can pleasant swimming in the water throughout the summer. Some of the best spas all over Europe, e.g. Héviz, Zalakaros, Kehida, can be found near here, and the spectacular spa of Marcali is also worth mentioning. The spa in Hévi­z is unique in Europe. You can go hunting in the nearby forests, travel by a small train through the forest in Mesztegnyo or go on a trip to a landscape protection area with a big fishpond in Boronka. You can also visit a lot of historical places e.g. the ruins of a church in Somogyvar, the prehistoric furnace in Somogyfajsz, the tower of Somogyvámos and the famous Festetics castle in Keszthely. You can visit the biggest European Krisna community 20 kilometres from the town. Marcali is 13 kilometres from the biggest lake in Middle-Europe, it is the lake Balaton. There is a huge national park with different outing possibilities e.g. a buffalo nature reserve, places for bird-watching, a water-mill, an otter reserve and a small island called Kanyavari sziget. Hungary is rightly famous for its quality wine. There are several excellent wine-districts near the town, e.g. wine district of the northern part of Lake Balaton 30kms wine-district of Szekszard 100kms wine-district of Villany 100kms the world famous wine district of Tokaj 350kms However, some quality wine can be found around Marcali as well. Budapest is it Budapest.
