An enthusiastic group of members spent a memorable weekend at Château Béla to commence the celebration of the Festive Holiday Season. The château is just 12 kilometres from the Hungarian border and only 90-minutes’ drive from Budapest.

Situated in the midst of picturesque southern Slovakia, the historic baroque residence is surrounded by extensive landscaped gardens. The buildings were restored in 2007 to make a top-class hotel, conference and activities centre. For the more adventurous, the outdoor activities available include horse riding through the vineyards, fishing by the château´s lakes, tennis or archery.

The unique atmosphere of the château, where luxury and tradition met, provided many memorable impressions during our weekend visit.

From the dinner in the Vinotheca Cellar to the formal event in the Banquet Hall, not forgetting a tour of the impressive Orangerie, there were marvels to survey at every turn.

The excellent food, the high quality local wines and the impeccable service meant we were able to enjoy a relaxing and happy start to the Christmas festivities!

Vive la Chaine!
