Location. Rye Island, Vrakúň, Slovakia
The eco-chic boutique hotel Château Amade***** is located approximately 122 km from Vienna, 50 km away from Bratislava and 153 km from Budapest in the pleasant surroundings of the village Vrakúň, a municipality which may be traced back as far as the Avar period.
The hotel is situated in the middle of the Rye Island populated mostly by Hungarian minority.
Even the old name of Csallóköz, KUKKÓNIA refers to a frog. The fire-bellied toad makes sounds like kuk-kuk. The locals imitated this in warning of the approach of the Tartars. (The Turks later avoided the region; they were unfamiliar with the area, got lost and often ended up sinking into the marsh.) Standing in the middle of the Danube’s arm, Rye Island represents the greatest river island in Europe with a great variety of hot springs and summers and abundance of fertile black earth. In days of old, Rye Island was a marshy region, even Turks avoided the swamps full of bogs and stagnant water. Today tourists can get to know the romantic region in the framework of safe tours. Our guests can take boats and kayaks in the branches of the Danube and can even wash gold in the sand of the Old Danube.
