Warm and cosy apartment by the ski slopes

4 of 5
My family had a wonderful time in this apartment during our ski trip. Very clean and fully furnished. We cooked there every night and were very comfortable. Newly renovated apartment with a luxurious bathroom and very nice decor throughout. One of the mornings was warm enough for us to eat breakfast in the garden, with a view pf snow covered mountain. We hope to return in the near future!

Good apartment in lovely Farchant

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.
