We went to Veroce with some friends, 12 in all, still had a lot of room and privacy. The house is massive. enviromment is great, specially for walks and bike-trips. Owners are very friendly people, who even provided catering for the whole group. Danube-side is wonderfull, lots of shops and resto's there, but takes a decent walk to get there. The place was super-clean and and the interior stunning. Not the cheapest, but given the amunt of guests it can house, certainly one of the best.

I give this forest home 5 stars. It is larger than you think;as you ascend the stairs the number of bedrooms and space to accommodate guests keeps growing.
The location is excellent for some quiet peaceful relaxation. Nicely situated for day trips in every direction. The scenery is breathtaking in the forested hills north of Budapest. Take a hike up the hill for a spectacular view of the Danube.
I highly recommend this vacation home to groups small and large. There is plenty of place for everyone. The garden is large and great to relax in the sun.
