A relaxing idyll with organic and rustic charm in the Koppany Valley Nature Park
. ‘Idyll’ – a very happy, peaceful and simple situation or period of time, especially in the countryside.
A perfect description of our small friendly site which is made up of Tranquil Pines Campsite, Hungarian Country Lodges and coming soon Hungarian Country ‘Wild Eco’ Glamping. We are located in the protected Koppany Valley directly on the walking trails with far reaching views across Hungary’s rolling hills. Each morning you will wake to a chorus of bird song. It’s the perfect rural bohemian escape with a relaxed vibe and friendly atmosphere and truly a very special place.
“Being campervanners ourselves, our vision was simple: happy people, great times and a good camp fire, A dose of healthy outdoor goodness in harmony with nature at prices everyone can afford.
Hungarian Country Camping, founded by Andrew and Sharon, offered us the perfect location to turn a vision into reality. A clean, safe and natural setting in a protected area. We plan to continue the eco framework with initiatives such as solar energy for heating our water and looking at ways to recycle creating a interesting boho twist that we hope will delight visitors.”
Debs & Mark, Your Hosts
AT OUR HEART
..is a centrally placed orchard and vine offering an abundant supply of homegrown fruit and vegetables. Our rustic communal seating area and ‘shack bar’ provide a relaxed setting to make the most of the evenings around a traditional campfire. A perfect place to share a shot of Palinka or sweet Hungarian wine and taste the local produce including the amazing honey from the local bee farm and the renowned hungarian paprika. Exchange travel tales over a traditionally cooked “Bogracs Gulyas” – Hungarian goulash and don’t forget to make use of our observatory deck to gaze at the star-filled clear, unpolluted ‘dark skies’ of Hungary. Prefer a night back at camp, why not hire one of our firepits?
…on the hammocks, deck chairs and nests around the onsite pool. Even the addition of the pool was taken with the environment impact in mind and is not a permanent fixture. The pool is seasonal May – September.
A TASTE OF 'REAL' HUNGARY
…hidden away in the village of Koppanyszanto which boasts a local kocsma (pub) and community village shop. There’s vineyards, wine presses houses and a local bee farm to explore on foot. The bus will take you to Tamasi to wander round the Deer Park or cycle the road to Pari for kilometres of cycle paths through Tamasi and Regoly to the national bird reserve of Pacsmags Lakes. Locally, we have fishing by appointment at a private lake with two more lakes at Androcs and Kocsola within driving distance, fishing licence required. Why not take time to catch one of the many Hungarian Festivals celebrating everything from transport to wines? For more information visit our festival page.
THREE LOCAL THERMAL SPAS
…are within a short distance of the site, the nearest of three, Tamasi, is 15 minutes away. For more information visit Thermal Spas of Tolna. Hévíz is the world’s largest natural thermal lake offering an unrivaled experience and is located 90 minutes from the site, having been used for its thermal properties for over 2,000 years, it’s definitely worth a day trip. Lake Balaton, europe’s largest freshwater lake is within 45 minute drive for water activities including paddleboarding at Fonyod and Siofok, lake cruises and a ferry to the north side of the lake allow you to visit the beautiful Tihany Peninsula and Balatonfured. The lake is very busy and bustling over the summer months and closed down in the winter, so Hungarian Country Camping offers a perfect compromise by ending each day at our peaceful retreat. The intriguing village of Taploca with its underground cave system and even a Zoo to keep the most discerning traveller occupied. A nearby train station will take you to Budapest for the city lights.

Jane Mann recommends Tranquil Pines Camping – June 19
What an enchanting place this is. So much respect for the founders of Tranquil Pines, from nothing to a functional, comfortable place to stay, van, caravan, tent or backpack. With all the modern comforts and safety, Andrew and Sharon have carefully retained a natural charm. You will really feel like you are part of the community. Thanks for one of the warmest welcomes we’ve ever had. We will definitely be coming back soon 😊🚐👍😘
