This tiny village at Káli-medence embodies the region’s romantic atmosphere, with its 19th-century manors, a little church, narrow streets and sunflowers.

The Balaton Uplands hides hidden treasures in the shape of small villages – and Balatonhenye is one of these. There are about 130 residents in this community at the foot of Henyei-hegy, just over ten kilometres from the shore of Lake Balaton.

Balatonhenye was first mentioned in the 1100s and a Pauline monastery was established here in the Middle Ages. The village was destroyed during the Ottoman occupation, and was later rebuilt. It became known for its fruit production, and more than 700 people lived here in the 19th century. Then Balatonhenye depopulated during the Communist era. With many of its beautiful old buildings left standing amid picturesque surroundings, tourism is on the rise. Quaint A nyaraló is one of its best-loved lodgings.
