Villány and the Villány-Siklós wine route
Their mission is exemplified by the 9th command of the Villány Wine Way:
“Be as original as your Mediterranean-soaked growing place that lies on the southern part of the Carpathian Basin but do not be Mediterranean, do not be continental, however, enjoy that by playing with the slopes, their mixture can produce special red and white wines, a complete product scale that is the specific feature of only Villány.”
The famous wines of the wine-growing region are born on this wine-growing region that occupies up to 35 square kilometres, embraces 18 localities and grape yards of 2500 hectares.
The climatic and soil features of the southern slopes of the Villány medium mountain, the diligence, hospitality of the families working here offer beneficial conditions for high-level grape growing and wine making.
The name-giving centre of the wine-growing region, Villány lies at a distance of 20 kms from Harkány. Its impressive line of caves lets have the feeling of inherited past traditions. The served wines provide the guests with unforgettable gastronomic experiences. On the church hill, the visitor can look around from a belvedere and can have a walk on an education path.

The Nagyharsány park of statues
The Nagyharsány park of statues can be found in an abandoned stone mine on the eastern side of Szársomlyó, embraced by the grape yards of Villány, in front of Villány. The several decades-old pieces of art can be viewed in the open-air artists’ residence that was founded in 1968. The mainly non-figurative open-air statutes made of the stones of the hill let us feel the enigmatic relations between the artists and the stones.
