The village is located in two valleys in the northern part of Outer-Somogy hills.
It is 10 km far from the Lake Balaton. It is accessible on a main road and directly from the highway No M7. It is a settlement with a dead end. One of its attraction is the Transylvanian (Székely) gate. In 2010 the Transylvanian village, Torja the twin village, gave to Bálványos as a gift, to make their relationship stronger. In Bálványos there is nice possibility for trekking in the small hills of the Somogy land. It is worth climbing up to the top of the hill and seeing the nice landscape and the village that reminds us of the Hungarian history.
