Mačkovci (pronounced [matʃˈkoːu̯tsi]; Hungarian: Mátyásdomb[2]) is a village in the Municipality of Puconci in the Prekmurje region of Slovenia.[3]

The section of the Slovenian Railways line between Murska Sobota and Hodoš runs through the village.

To the west of the main settlement stands the Marof Mansion, a hunting lodge built by Count Szápáry around 1900. It was used as a summer residence by the counts of Murska Sobota. It is a two-story building with a turret on its east side and the original interior furnishings are preserved, although the surrounding park is no longer maintained.[4] The mansion is currently being renovated and a wine cellar is being built in the hope of developing wine tourism in the region.[5]
