It is understandable that you ask this when you try to decide what is the truth behind the photos and the information on our website.
First of all, the truth is what you see and read about. The photos show the recent conditions and the descriptions reflect the actual services, which we can provide at a high level.
Before we founded our own family business, we were also tourists many times - on bikes, horses or just driving - on the Balaton-Upland. We have fallen in love with this area, based on our experience, it’s at least as beautiful as Europe's other well-known destinations, like: Tuscany or Basque.
The little village, in the side of the Keszthelyi-hills, is a favourite spot, not just for riders, but also for families with children, for active tourists, and those who want to escape from their busy lives.
The view from the garden is surrounded by the volcanic monadnock of the Balaton-Upland. The lake is just 3 kilometre away. The famous tourist destinations - like Badacsony, Keszthely, Szigliget, Tapolca - are within 15 kilometres.
Equital has many different activities for relaxation: pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, sunbathing terrace, a big garden, playground, sand volleyball, football-court, and a restaurant that is open all day.
The region offer a series of opportunities for active tourism: bike- and walking trails, water sports on Lake Balaton, golf, cave-tours, castle and sightseeing tours, wine- and culinary tourism, local markets.
I have visited about 300 horse farms and riding schools personally inland and abroad. These were good and not, but I have learnt a lesson from every single one.
We utilized these observations when we established our own horse farm, where the horses and the riders also feel good without compromise.
The main point is, that we personally care for all of our guests, if they are on holiday, or riding, or just looking round.
Our service-areas are not in a big building. We create independent areas for each service. Our guests can reach all of our service-areas in our two hectare garden.
We founded our horse farm in 2007. Since then we are continually developing: adding new buildings and/or services.
We, the owners, don’t want to create a large tourist business. We love horses, riding and the region. We would like to run a friendly, homey, comfortable place, where we have enough space and everything radiates quiet calmness. Where the children have fun, and those guests, who don’t want to ride, also have a good time at our place.
To conclude: a place, which I would also choose, if I were the guest.
When you visit us, you will have a holiday in peace, far away from the stress of the busy days, but just a short trip from the sights and programs of the area, which is one of the most colourful regions of Hungary.
