My boyfriend and I stayed in the lower apartment of Michele and Gabor's villa. It was beautiful, spacious, so comfortable and included all of the amenities listed in the description. We were there for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The entire house surpassed our expectations in every way.
Michele and Gabor suggested an itinerary for us, which was so so helpful. It was the perfect itinerary for the amount of time we were there. They were amazing tour guides from afar. We went to the cave baths which were incredible, and then had a glass of wine at the restaurant with live music outside the baths. We also rode the bobsled over and over until we could make it to the bottom hardly using the breaks! The local restaurants are totally reasonable and had great food. The langos with garlic sauce was our favorite! The town also has a huge playground for kids and a lake with peddle boats.
Nearby is the castle which we really enjoyed. And of course the wine caves in Eger, a short drive away, which had excellent wine, is not to be missed. We can't believe more Hungarian wine isn't exported for sale in the U.S.
In Miskolc, there is a special bridge over a small river where lovers etch their names on a padlock, lock it on the fence of the bridge over the water, and throw away the key in the river, signifying your hearts are locked together forever. It was very romantic and we even found Michele and Gabor's lock!
The caretaker of the villa was such a help in so many ways and very easy to get along with. He was always there when we needed him, ready to lend a helping hand.
I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful and amazing home. We had an incredible experience and hope to go back again soon!
