Csend = tranquility
Our lovely thatched cottage is nestled in the tranquil, charming-old village of Szigliget within one of the most beautiful landscapes of Hungary, the hilly northern shore of Lake Balaton.
The cottage is furnished with mostly authentic pieces – and we’re continuously trying to make it nicer and more comfortable each year. If you're looking for a simple and beautiful place to stay you'll love it!
The garden invites you to have breakfast under the chestnut tree, to sunbath, BBQ or just enjoy the fantastic panoramic view over the village and Lake Balaton.

The cottage and Szigliget are really full of charm and nice. This is a place where to enjoy the calm, the view and breathe to take a break from the everyday stress.
Owners were very helpful and discreet at the same time.
Wir waren zu viert für eine Woche hier im "Csend". Es hat uns sehr gefallen, das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis hat für uns gestimmt. Wer einen ruhigen Ort mit schöner Aussicht auf den See sucht, kommt hier auf seine Rechnung. Die Unterkunft ist einfach, ohne Schnickschnack, wer gerne Luxus und Komfort hat, sollte etwas anderes suchen. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir würden auf alle Fälle gerne wieder hierher kommen.
A great place with a pleasant aura for a quiet and peaceful holidays!
Very charming neighbourhood with small restaurants, delicious wines and a magnificent view of Balaton lake from the Cottage garden!
We sincerely recommend!
Being a Hungarian-Bavarian family we're residents of Szigliget for over 30 years now. We love the tranquille area of Upper Balaton, that we regard as Hungary’s Provence: it’s still unexplored natural beauty, it's colorful countryside, to discover new villages and spots, to go horse riding or to stroll over local markets, where you can find tastes and smells of the local area's fresh, genuine products.
We’re passionate about the heritage of art and style of the Hungarian countryside and to gently bring it to life at our Cottage.
From spring until late summer we run our little Cottage Csend in Szigliget where our guests can spend a wonderful and relaxing time. Hope to see you too!
