The outdoor natural pool was a big hit with our children and the whole setting of the cottage is ideal : quiet, relaxing and convenient. The train station is a short distance from the house and it was easy for us to go directly into Munich from there. We had a hire car and places that we visited that were easy to drive to were Dachau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen ( for a brilliant day out at Zugspitze mountain) and the close by Skyline Park. The beautiful Lake Ammersee is within walking / cycling distance as are two towns (Eching and Turkenfeld) with places to shop and eat. Hans and Sabeeka were extremely kind and helpful to us during our stay. They are a lovely, friendly couple who did everything they could and more to make us welcome and ensure our holiday was as simple and relaxing as it could be. Overall, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage and it’s owners to others. Thank you Hans and Sabeeka.

The WiFi was great! Excellent communications with Monkia (the owner) prior to our arrival and during our visit. She was very helpful with advice and even dried a few loads of washing for us in her dryer & printed out our boarding cards for us! Her two little dogs are very friendly too and visit you on occasion. We had a hire car, but you can get around without one - the S Bahn stop is only a few minutes walk away - and tickets work out cheaper if you buy a 3 day pass or do a group ticket. We dined twice at a local Chinese Restaurant again a few minutes walk away as the service and food was so good and very reasonable. There's a small supermarket also a few minutes walk away. Further afield - a 5 minute drive is a Lidl, and a little further an Aldi supermarket. Two stops on the S Bahn (or 10 minutes in the car) takes you to Pasing - a nice little town which has an indoor shopping centre, with lots of restaurants. The Centre of Munich (Marienplatz) is 20 mins away on the S Bahn - SO much to do here. Lots of markets, museums (you'll never see all of the Deuches museum in one day), Englicher garten was great - locals surf here and swim in a 'lazy river'. The Hofbrauhaus is an essential visit! We drove to Bad Tolz - a beautiful village and just outside is an alpine ski lift with a summer toboggan run. We also went to Therme Erding, an indoor water park and spa but should have paid for all day ticket as 4 hours wasn't enough to explore it all. The accommodation was perfect to return to when we had finished out day out - very quiet for undisturbed sleep, the photos are accurate - everything is as described.
