Salföld can be found in the heart of the Balaton Uplands National Park, on the border between Káli Basin and the Badacsony region, only a few kilometres from Lake Balaton. The National Park Directorate established the Manor on the outskirts of the village keeping traditional Hungarian breeds of farm animals such as racka, cigája, cikta sheep, water buffalo, Hungarian Grey cattle, mangalica pig, poultry and sheep dogs. The animal-stroking area is the favourite spot of the children.
The site also gives home to a picturesque, new photo exhibition about butterflies: 'Abstract Nature'.
The spice and herb garden of the Manor gives an adventure of fragrances to the visitors, the exhibition of agricultural machines provides a spotlight on traditional farming. Horse shows, pony riding, horse riding, horse-carriage tours are among the services of the manor as well. A souvenir shop, buffet and playground await visitors.

Traditional folk architecture is still kept alive in the village, so after visiting the Manor it is well worth taking a short walk among the beautifully renovated dwelling houses. The Káli Basin with its numerous geological, botanical, cultural assets - especially the Hegyestű Geological Interpretive Site, the "seas of stones" and the ruins of a cloister situated south of Salföld, in a forest - can be discovered on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or with horse-driven coaches.
Dogs only on a lead please!
The area of the Bakony–Balaton Geopark includes this exhibition site and its surrounding as well.
