Nice flat with great view and easy access to indoor and outdoor pool

4 of 5
We stayed at this flat for almost a week and were very satisfied with our stay. The flat has a lovely view of the Alps from the balcony, and is very close to the forest and hiking trails. The children loved the swimming pool (and sauna) in the basement, and for sunny days there is a great outdoor swimming pool (Freibad) just 500 meters away. We came by car and appreciated the underground garage since the car park is popular with guests who visit the Italian restaurant (highly recommended) in the same complex. There is a washing machine and dryer in the basement (3 euro per machine per cycle). We were 2 adults and 2 children, and the children slept on the sofa bed in the living room, which worked fine. The only thing we would point out is that there are only three chairs for the dining table, which was a bit unpractical. The owner, Mr Hirschmann, is very friendly, and was happy to answer any practical questions. All in all, we can warmly recommend this flat.
