Rent Your Own Hungarian Village For Just $750 A Day

Let’s face it — most of us are never going to be the mayor of our own village. But if you’ve got some cash to spare, you can buy your way into deputy mayordom by renting a Hungarian village for just $750 a day.

The village of Megyer, population 18, is offering itself up for rent to anyone who’s willing to pay, reports the Associated Press.

For the bargain basement price of 210,000 forints ($750) per day, renters will have the run of seven guesthouses that sleep 39 people, four streets, a bus stop, a barn, a chicken yard, six horses, two cows, three sheep and four hectares (10 acres) of farmland.

You’ll also get to be the temporary deputy mayor, with the chance to rename the village’s streets to whatever you want during your stay.

The village is trying to boost tourism to the area, which dates back to at least the 11th century, and offers peace and quiet as its foremost attraction.

“We offer all sorts of programs to our guests, but most are simply captivated by the surroundings and the quiet,” said Mayor Kristof Pajer. “Once they sit out in the meadow with a bottle of rose wine, nothing else matters.”

See y’all on Quirk Court. Unless you’d rather stay on Aaron Rodgers’ Starry-Eyed Lane. I bet it’s beautiful.
