                                                                                                      5 of 5

The location is perfect, esp for kids. The private garden has its own slide - much to the delight of our 3 yr old. You also have access to the facilities at the neighbouring hotel/hostel - sand pit, trampoline, climbing wall. About 5 mins away is the lake and also a wonderful playground with great fountains/water play area, again much loved by our little one. 10 min walk to ferry. Great location, Achenkirch is a nice, smaller place to stay on the lake and very pretty. Shop is about 5 mins drive and bars/restaurants next door. My only comment is that apartment isn't very private - it didn't bother us but don't expect something secluded. We had a great time and will hopefully return!
