A wonderful holiday in beautiful Bavaria

5 of 5
Apartment is great with everything required for a family holiday and it has the most wonderful views of the Zugspitze. Lots of activities to do in the local area and the town of Farchant is good for bakeries and a holiday beer! We had an amazing week with lots of sunshine and we hope to return again soon.

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!
