Laposa Birtok Questions & Answers

Hey Chili,

A group of 3 of us are looking to to Budapest on March 2nd and we ae going to do a day trip to Badacsony.

We wanted to climb the mountain and see the views and then spend the rest of the afternoon and evening tasting wine at al of the different vineyards.

This one sounds amazing.

I thought you may know more about the area and what to do.

I want ed to ask, are all of wine vineyards close to eachother?

Is there a bus service that can take you from vineyard to vineyard?

Is it possible to walk or ride a bike between the vineyards?

Can you recommend a cheaper but still nice hotel for the night?

Cheers

Karlee

Hi Karlee,

Badacsony is a really good place, it is worth to see and taste. But maybe the time which you have choosen is not the best. Lot of wineyards are closed or will be open only on request. I would advise to contact them. One of the non-stop open wineyard is Laposa, my favorite place. It is worth to see the view from this place and you can taste lot of good wines. For 4 people they will surly be open after they official closing hour (19.00) as well. If you're comming from the top of the hill, there will be another wine tasting points as well, you can enjoy them.

As the private hostels are closed in this time I can suggest to book Halászkert Hotel. It is cheaper than Bonvino, maybe not so fine but nice, clean and well located.

In the turistical main time there are buses to take from wineyard to wineyard but I'm not sure that at the beginning of March they already in use. But you can use a "taxi". This are old Russian style crossover vehicles (new but authentic old style). Some of them work through the year. The Hotel can make you reservation, almost all of the accomondation have good contacts to this people.

Enjoy your stay in Hungary, and don't hesitate to ask the nice and helpfull Hungarian people. We are proud of our country. :)

Dear Karlee - its great to hear you're planning to visit Badacsony. While the small town itself isn't one of the prettiest around Balaton, the vineyards are quite nice. I would say Laposa is the nicest with its huge terrace and lovely service. Next to Laposa is Szeremley Borhaz, Kisfaludy Haz, Thomay Pinceszet, and many many more. In terms of hotel, Bonvino is quite a nice hotel in Badacsony, and they also offer wine tasting, etc. The wineries like Laposa are typically situated on top of the hills, but there are roads leading up there so you don't necessarily have to climb up the steep streets. Obviously drinking and driving are not compatible in Hungary, so unless your driver abstains from drinking, I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and preparing yourselves for a 15 minute walk uphill. Szeremley and Laposa are very close to each other, the others are a bit more of a walk. If in the area, for a really nice restaurant experience, I would recommend Marga Bistro in Csopak (on the way to Badacsony, located outside the village) but do try to make a reservation because they are quite popular. Marga has a lovely view of the lake, and premium wines and food! Another premium restaurant is Bock Bistro in Vonyarcvashegy (close to Keszthely).

For more of a 'city stroll', visit Balatonfured, Tihany and Keszthely, these are very pretty small cities. In Balatonfured, do visit the Karolina bakery, its fab!
