Pergola Guest House*** is located in Balatonföldvár, one of the most spectacular traditional resorts at Lake Balaton. The holiday village, originally dreamed up by renowned architects in the nineteenth century, in its wonderful surroundings, was once a popular centre of relaxation of aristocrats, artists and writers. It has gradually become a well-established summer holiday destination. Among its numerous places of cultural interest, one can find the Celtic earthworks, archaeological sites, listed buildings and commemorative plaques.
The town itself makes a powerful impact on the visitor. Its Kvassay Alley along the lakeside, lined with plane trees, is of unique beauty.
