Lovers of the outdoor lifestyle can rent a holiday cottage in the mountains, hiking, climbing, horse-riding, fishing and swimming are just a few activities that can be enjoyed. For people wanting to go on a fishing holiday, they can rent a villa with a swimming pool in one of the many villas around Lake Balaton.
