We spent a wonderful week in this modern, clean and well maintained house set in a beautiful location with convenient access to a quiet pebbled beach on the shores of lake Chiemsee. The house is on a small peninsula and this spit of land has the best possible position for views, quietness and access to everything of relevance. We drove around the lake and it really was the best location.
We recommend visiting the islands on the lake but we'd advise parking or walking to Gstadt to catch the ferries across the lake rather than go to the main town of Prien. It is much closer and quieter with frequent ferries. Parking is cheap and easy.
Prien itself is worth a visit with interesting shops and a leisure centre near the dock that has wonderful swimming pools with many water features. Useful if you need a break from the intense heat of the summer but still want to swim.
There is easy access to the mountains to the south and we spent a fun day at altitude having shredded pancakes near an alpine forest and pasture.
The nearest supermarket is about 3km away in Rimsting and is well provisioned. There is a nearby AGIP petrol station too.
Finally, as seems common for Bavaria in summer, there a lot of wasps and hornets around so if you're not a fan we'd advise eating indoors at cafes and restaurants unless you are at altitude.
Arrived along with my husband and 4 other friends for a weeks stay. Our husbands had motor biked down from Scotland over the course of a few days and we had flown into Munich on the Saturday. We ALL were very impressed and grateful to arrive to such a beautiful house.
We settled in very quickly and easily and the house works perfectly for 6 adults! Garden was great to sit out in (although bitten alive first night by friendly mozies!). Had already shopped at Aldi on the way into Rimsting but the local garage along the top of the road from the house is very well stocked for many things and the local bakery again at the top of the house road where we had breakfast one morning was mouthwatering! The other cafe you can walk to heading through the houses in the opposite direction is also worth a breakfast or bread and cake visit (closed Mondays!). The local Italian restaurant just on the roundabout is fabulous and we ate there a couple of times during the week both times superb food and service.
The lake down over the field from the house, again all in walking distance was a welcome relief on a couple of occasions after a day on the bikes. 2 euro to get into the garden area and changing huts but equally you can just access via the other pier.
The whole area is gorgeous, manicured and well looked after. Great roads and passes for the bikes.
The owner Susanne was fabulous with all my questions throughout the whole booking - many thanks for a wonderful stay. Highly recommend.
