                                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                                This property was absolutely lovely, well equipped and done to a high spec particularly the bathroom. The chalet is much more spacious than it appears with lots of cupboard space and it is very private with it's own side entrance ( it is the second floor of the homeowner's house but that should not put you off as they are very welcoming and out of sight most of the time). The location is in Burgrain a 10 minute ride from Garmisch and even though we had a car we did use the bus services which are very regular to get to/from many of the hiking trails. On arrival Christl signs you up for free bus passes so if you don't have a car you would still be in a position to travel using the buses for free! You can also easily walk to Garmisch , it takes 20 - 30 minutes along the river and then across the back fields. This is a lovely location if you want to stay out of the hustle bustle of the town and be somewhere peaceful with panoramic views of the mountains. You have very easy access to hiking trails, ski slopes and cable cars. There is also a super Italian restaurant on the corner which serves up the largest pizzas I have ever seen!! ( to share of course) and it's just a short walk along the river to the nearest supermarkets ( 5 mins). I would highly recommend this property! It's great!

                                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                                A really lovely apartment in the peaceful but well located village of Farchant. This was a lovely place to stay, good sized lounge with a small balcony with a good view of the mountains. Decent shower, small but well appointed kitchen. Only minor downside is small area for dining, would perhaps be a bit of a squeeze if 4 adults, but it was fine for the two of us. The apartment was lovely and clean and well appointed and the owners were friendly and helpful. Best of all was the location, near enough to Garmisch and the mountain cable cars, but in I peaceful small town (or large village), big enough to have a few shops and some supermarkets on the outskirt but small enough to be peaceful. There is a lovely woodland walk only a few minutes walk from the house with a path up to the lovely Kuhfluct waterfall and if like us you have some warm weather there is a heated open air lido (with 4 different types of pool) in the village. If you walk around the village you will see real working farms with cow barns and beehives on the balcony right in the village centre. If we come back to this area (and we might in a few years) we would certainly consider staying in Farchant again and this property again.
