Castle Workation

29 July- 5 August 2017

After our successful Tarifa Workations and the recently introduced Norway Workation, we are inviting you to the very first Balaton Workation!

A fairytale castle by the ‘Hungarian Sea’, superb food and wine, great variety of outdoor activities, coworking in great company…sounds magical?

Luxurious castle

All the comfort you may wish for – and probably more! Relax by the pool or wander around the castle park.

Gorgeous setting

Get some work done – then go out and get active! Walk, bike, hike, sail, wakeboard – up to you!

Coworking & Networking

Expand your network and let your fellow Flaksers inspire you. Boost your business while having fun.

Why Balaton?

Imagine Central Europe’s largest lake, surrounded by picturesque hills and vineyards, marvelous geological formations and tiny, peaceful villages. Got it? This is Balaton!

Eastern Europe at its finest!

Perfect weather conditions, beautiful lake-side settlements, vineyards, great food and the occasional castle 😉 Our castle is perfectly located in the middle of the northern hilly side of the lake from where we can easily discover this beautiful region and enjoy many magical sunsets.

You bring your laptop, we'll take care of the rest!

We offer

A Castle!

Yup! A real fairy tale castle with views over the Balaton lake and located in the middle of vineyards and flowery fields. Magical!! Relax in your cosy room, work in our common living room, chill by the pool or at the beach, wander around in the castle park and enjoy the awesome panorama. Breakfast, lunch, coffee, tea and soda are all included.

Comfortable Workplace

Looking for some inspiration? Work together and share ideas with the other Flaksers in our common living room! If you need more ‘isolation’, you can keep your business running from your room, since the wifi is spread throughout the castle. 

Business Program

Our event’s true value with regards to you as a person and your business in general is the Flaks network and the business program. We’ll have three business meetups (pitching, marketing and business efficiency) and optional workshops based on your input.

Fun Program

We organize various fun events to get the most out of your stay at Balaton and maximize the holiday feeling.  Two local style restaurant nights and a traditional, outdoor stew evening are included. We also have plenty of optional events and activities in which you can join for free or for cheap.

Wakeboarding and Outdoors

We will arrange a wakeboarding session for those who want to have some water fun. The castle has bikes available, so feel free to take one and ride it along the lake! We also recommend to take a closer look at the unique natural wonders in Kali basin. At the end of the day, you can relax your muscles in the hot lake of Heviz or in our swimming pool.  

A lifelong network of sporty entrepreneurs

Flaks is more than only this one experience. Many of our participants return to our workations, but many also meet up in their home country. By joining Flaks, you'll become part of a very inspiring network of sporty entrepreneurs.

Invoice for your business

Flaks will send you an invoice for business related costs only (such as the coworking space, the internet, the accommodation, the meetings, the food and drinks around the coworking place). Expenses that occur in your free time are not included. This makes it easier for you to decide what is tax-deductible and what is not.

Spice up your luxurious stay at Balaton with some extra adventure, and join us for the water-skiing and wakeboarding course at Lido beach in Vonyarcvashegy! We will take care of your transfer, and arrange a group discount.

Wine tasting

Join us on a wine tasting event with a cellar visit and learn everything about the wines of this rich volcanic region. Enjoy the views of the lake and the vineyards around you as the sun is setting. When dinner time comes, treat yourself with one of the Hungarian specialities: whether it is a grilled pike-perch coming from the lake, a stew of the long horned Hungarian cattle, a spicy sausage made of mangalica or the Hungarian strudel filled with curd or sour cherry, your taste receptors will remember this forever. Yummy!

Excursion around Balaton

Discover the wonders of this beautiful region with a Hop on hop off shuttle bus!  Wander all over the 50 km long way, or interrupt the journey at any winehouse you like or attraction you are interested in. Take your time then hop on back again and let the bus take you to your next stop. The onboard hostess will inform you about the experiences awaiting at every stop. Whatever your thing is: castles, arboretums, eco-tourism, native domestic animals, wine, art or museums, you’ll find it here.
