By car:

Discover the lovely little towns of the Palots Highlands, Ipolyság, Nagykürtös, Kékkő, Fülek, Rimaszombat, Rozsnyó (all quoted here by their Hungarian names rather than the Slovakian ones you are likely to find on your maps…) or the castles that had once belonged to Hungary, Ajnácskő, Somoskő, Krasznahorka, Tornalja. The Geopark Nógrád-Novohrád holds for you a number of absolutely unique natural phenomena, the basalt stream in Somoskő or the finds of Ipolytarnóc from the Stone Age.

And if you stay at ”Jópalócok” Guest House…

… you will be able to taste the chef d’oeuvres of Palots cuisine. The fine light soups, the simple cabbage and potato dishes, the pasta types, noodles and pies, mushrooms fresh and dried offer real culinary delights.

From the fruit of the nearby garden and the fields are made delicious jams, squashes and spirits, and arriving at the appropriate time, you may even make your own jam or syrups yourself (but not spirits, unfortunately!). In the courtyard, grill and campfire cooking parties can be organized with or without help from the personnel. If interested in game, you can walk to the game preserve at the other end of the village to see the otherwise rarely visible wild boars in their natural environment, or choose angling and boating at the picturesque 20-hectare fishing lake, or else on the little lake next to the house. In the basement of the Guest House, tired trekkers are pampered by the wellness service, but even well-relaxed, one cannot resist to a good bubble bath.
