The mayor of Megyer, in the north west of the country, has listed the village for rent on website jofogas.hu in the hope of raising money to make upgrades to the 11th century hamlet.

The 210,000 Hungarian Forints a day fee (just over £500) includes hire of four streets, a barn, 10 acres of farmland and several guest houses sleeping up to 39 people as well as the temporary title of "deputy mayor" and the ability to choose their own street names.

The village, located 120 miles from Budapest, has a population of 26 people, six horses, two cows, three sheep and a chicken.

Mayor Kristof Pajer told the Associated Press he is hoping companies will use his town as a place for corporate team-building exercises and to potentially include renovation in their activities.

"We offer all sorts of programmes to our guests, but most are simply captivated by the surroundings and the quiet," he said. "Once they sit out in the meadow with a bottle of rose wine, nothing else matters."
