“Excellent in every way!”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a great trip! Szerval proved to be above all our expectations - a small oasis from everyday stress - a place to totally relax with amazing trips on horseback and lovely home cooked meals under a star lit sky.

We were picked up in the airport, the farm is only about 35-40 mins drive from Budapest Airport located in Dabas, a smal city with some supermarkeds, a handfull small shops and a few lovely bakeries and small cafes about 5-10 mins away on bike. The rooms are in fact 3 small individual villas with room for 2-3 people each and decorated in a rustique country style - all with their own bathroom and 2 of them with a kitchenette. The horses are of good quality and has good conditions even for scandinavian standards.

The owner had asked quite carefully beforehand about preferences and riding experience and managed to mate each one of us with the perfect horse. Super calm and friendly horses for the less experienced and some very forward and eager ones for the very experienced riders. We then rode in 2 groups at different times so that everyone could get the most of the trip - the one group in a faster pace with lots of cantor and the other group in a calm pace of walk and trot and only a bit of cantor once in a while. Each of us very happy with our own horse and the pace of the group - quite an achievement with such different riders! The surrounding area is beyond anything we ever saw before. Endless greens and pastures, wild flowers, trees - everything so beautiful and not a road, a car or a house in sight. Just the open country perfect for horseriding!

The meals very plenty, homecooked and lovely! Home made jams, fresh eggs from the chickens, soups and steaks - everything well cooked country style food (all cooked by the owners mother). They even made vegetarian meals for one of the guests. We didnt need to buy anything - they even have a huge proffessional espressomaker the guests can use!

The owner Daniel and his girlfriend was great hosts who made everyone feel welcomed and pampered but still leaving everyone their privacy. They were friendly and very helpful and even arranged a massage therapist to come and work on our sore limbs after the many hours in the saddle.

We have been on quite a few riding holidays in different countries, but this place is indeed a gem, as someone else wrote in their review. We cant wait to go again! :-)

“Great riding holiday”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A wonderful little gem for weekend riding holiday (or 4x4 driving, tennis and other things we didn't try).
If you're looking for luxury and up-scale accomodation - this is not the place. But if you appreciate a warm "home-like" down-to-eath" feeling almost like visiting friends, a cosy atmosphere and hospitality - combined with good horses and a wonderful nature - then this is the place to go.
Daniel and his family and staff are very friendly and welcoming and will help you get the most out of your stay here. They are very attentive to the well-being of the horses (and all the other animals) and also take very good care of the guests with very nice home-made rustic meals.
The house/rooms and stables are located right outside Dabas - and small town with a few bars and shops - and outdoor swimming pool - and with direct access to the plains/forest - great area for riding and walking.

Rooms are very basic - but nice size and clean. And all close to the little patio/terrasse where all meals are served and you can sit and relax with a coffee or enjoy the sun - only 100 m from the stables.

“great stay and nice riding”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 for a stay in August 2012

One of the best holidays of my life. Wonderful riding on really nice horses in an environment with endless fields that I'm not used to at home. Szerval have quiet horses for beginners and tough for the more experienced riders, horse keeping is good according to Swedish standard and tour leader Daniel adapts the riding for all the participants. Adequate nice accommodation and good food. The host family always did their best to make us feel comfortable. It's great to come as a guest in a foreign country and not as a tourist.

“Really good experience”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I had a great and relaxing time at Szerval horse riding holidays. Very familiar place with only a few guests at a time, nice homecooked food, and very friendly. Horses for different riding skills available, which was really good as well. Combine it with a few days in Budapest and your holiday is even more perfect!
