I can't speak to villages, but there are a number of places you can walk around in in Budapest itself that do not feel like 'the city.'

1) The campus of the Budapest Technical University.

2) Get up to Citadelle, and walk through the woods around it. (I think you can get a cold beer - at a probably inflated price - up there.

3) Take the Children's RR to an intermediate stop and have a walk onone of the several trails.

Budapest is unusual (IMHO) for having so many places inside the city limits that do not feel ar all as though one is actually 'in the city.'

in July, for four nights, the name of the game is the weather ... all other things being equal, Margaret Island or the Roman baths along the river just north of the city will give you all the respite you'll want on a pleasant July day ... add the Szechenyi or Gellert indoor/outdoor baths and you'll be out of the city ion spirit and soul ...

If you find that Budapest itself is not enough for you, there are several day trip options to villages/towns within 45-90 minutes from Budapest.

- Vac (by train from Nyugati station)

- Visegrad (by train from Nyugati station or by hydrofoil along the Danube)

- Szentendre (by HEV train from Batthyany Ter)

- The Royal Palace at Godollo (by HEV train from Ors Vezer tere)

- Esztergom (by train from Nyugati station)

- Tata (by train from Deli station)
