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.

Communication before our stay was good and Frau Riedel was happy to meet us at a time to suit for checking in. The apartment is amazing. Every little thing has been thought of (and I mean everything!) There was no need to buy the usual kitchen bits and pieces (dishwasher tablets etc) and we could have brought no toiletries at all and been fully catered for. The apartment is very comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished. Beds were very comfortable - we were rather warm but the weather was reaching 33 degrees. The balcony overlooking the river and mountains was a little haven for reading after a day in the mountains. The location is great - easy walking distance to station, bus stop, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets, but the street is very quiet. I'm usually quite a harsh reviewer, but wouldn't hesitate to give this property 5/5. Thank you!
