This was a great two bedroomed upstairs apartment in a beautiful location in Bavaria. All the rooms are spacious and bright overlooking the garden. Our hosts Irmgard & Jim took us out the first night for a meal to a local restaurant which was a great way of getting to know them. Irmgard and Jim live downstairs and are very approachable & knowledgeable about the local area and places to visit. A 10 minute walk takes you down to Starnberger See with some lovely views of the lake and plenty of walks. There is train station in Starnberg and you can get into Munich in about 25 minutes and a drive of about 1 hour south and you are in the German Alps. No great problems with the language although we speak no German, most restaurants seem to have an English Menu and most people we met in public places could speak some English. Highly recommend this holiday home and we plan to return next year.

My family very much enjoyed our week in Machtlfing. The village is very easy to get to with a car and is in the heart of a farming community - so expect to hear cows and tractors! - but otherwise it is tranquil and beautiful setting. Bus stops are just outside the house so it would probably be easy to explore by bus and link to trains to travel around the area by public transport. The apartment is very spacious, comfortable and modern in layout and fittings and provided ideal accommodation for our family of four. Our stay was during the heat-wave so air conditioning (which we expected from the property listing but was absent) would have improved our comfort, though Maria quickly provided fans to give some cooling of the rooms. The overhang design of the apartment roof and window blinds also provide some shade. Parking in the yard was straightforward and access to the apartment always easy with roomy stairs and a lift. The balcony was a lovely place to relax in the evening and also useful to dry laundry. With a car we found it easy to travel northwards to Munich and southwards into the Alps, as well as short visits to the beautiful lakes and villages within easy reach of the property. Andechs Monastery and Beer garden were a lovely place to visit in the evening. Food shopping was no problem with plenty of choice in Lidl in Tutzing and supermarkets and a variety of shops in more distant towns. Marie provided a warm welcome and farewell and showed a genuine interest and care in ensuring we enjoyed our stay. For us it added up to the perfect holiday property providing a chance to explore an area during the day and evening and all you need 'at home' to relax and refresh overnight.
