Absolutely brilliant when we passed you. Waving with big grins. It was so funny. Who would have thought it.
We had just left Tesco...no curry though Biggest shop we have done in ages.
Now at Camping Eldorado and not bad. 5600 florints.
Glad you enjoyed the lake.
Will introduce myself to you at the next show. I was the pretty female blonde one of course ha ha
Chris (and Gordon)
Ha ha! Totally excellent moment on the road in the middle of Hungary, waving like loonies at Chris and co in their blue Dethleffs as we passed each other!
Hope you don't find the site at Fured too busy - it's much bigger and noisier than hear at Castrum. Lake is lovely though. Just spent afternoon in the Heviz lake spa - wonderful resort with top class facilities we thought.
Off to Slovenia tomorrow, may catch up with Addie there.
White Frankia A class. And apparently we need to stop in Tesco to buy muesli
Ha ha. We will look out for you on route tomorrow (or in Tesco . Our van is a blue Dethleffs fortero.
Yep, we've got Camping Castrum in our sights, and although we booked 3 nights here we're off tomorrow after two. Not because we don't like the site, I think we've just got itchy feet! The thermal lake sounds great!
When we spotted Tesco we were determined not to visit it, but all the big supermarkets are foreign it seems - we shopped in Auchan here. In the end we popped into a Tesco to see if we could buy any decent camp chairs (no luck) and ended up buying a cooked chicken! Mandy was most put out that they didn't put any points on her clubcard!
We went to the thermal lakes in Heviz today and enjoyed it. An unusual experience for us though. Cost us 5200 (£15) for both of us at the lake for 3 hours. Only go in water for 30 mins at a time they say. They give you a wrist watch which you use for your locker. It also tells you how much time you have left. Whether you like the waters or not I would pay for 4 hours next time as you can sunbathe and picnic/read/eat out there too. Don't wear jewellery in especially silver.
Right opposite the main entrance to the thermal lake is Kurcamping Castrum which, looking at the size of your van, will be ideal for you. There is a cycle path to KESZTHELY next to it too and an easy walk into Heviz. We called on the weekend and loads of spaces. Biggest pitch there for 2 adults with electric would be about 6,709 florint (approximately). www.castrum.eu
The site we are on now is camping Panorama which is 2 miles from Heviz and up a lane. Perfect for us. You would have to have some form of transport to travel from here though. We like cycling but in this heat it has been pretty hard going. No shops or anything here but a lovely little pool and great people on the site with free wifi. 16 euros a night with electric.
Looks like we will stay on the North side of the lake from advice given. Definitely going to Balontonfured now too but will go to Badacsony tomorrow first for a few days, probably Camp Eldorado
Before anything though we will visit Tesco tomorrow at Keszthely. Really struggling to buy a good choice of food here. Been travelling since May now. Can't believe Tesco is here. Would love a curry ha ha.
Might cross paths with you so will look out. There are no Brits around here either. We have been in Croatia for last 8 weeks.
It's probably about 18 years since we were there but Eger was a lovely medieval town with a nice campsite within walking distance. The campsite (if it's still open) is in a horseshoe shaped valley with loads of wine caves.
It was not very touristy then, but things may well have altered.
I really should read threads more carefully! Just noticed that you wanted a quieter site and not all singing and dancing. Not sure I'd call Camping Fured quiet, as it has restaurants and bars on site, plus pool, go cart hire, beach shops, etc. However it does sit just on the lake, and I can personally recommend the pedalo hire for a pleasant hour on the water!
I also noticed when reading the thread properly that you're in Heviz at the moment Chris, which is where we're heading next! Sounds likely that our paths may cross at some point! Did you see the lake with the water lilies?
Will get researching them now.
