We spent a wonderful week in this modern, clean and well maintained house set in a beautiful location with convenient access to a quiet pebbled beach on the shores of lake Chiemsee. The house is on a small peninsula and this spit of land has the best possible position for views, quietness and access to everything of relevance. We drove around the lake and it really was the best location.
We recommend visiting the islands on the lake but we'd advise parking or walking to Gstadt to catch the ferries across the lake rather than go to the main town of Prien. It is much closer and quieter with frequent ferries. Parking is cheap and easy.
Prien itself is worth a visit with interesting shops and a leisure centre near the dock that has wonderful swimming pools with many water features. Useful if you need a break from the intense heat of the summer but still want to swim.
There is easy access to the mountains to the south and we spent a fun day at altitude having shredded pancakes near an alpine forest and pasture.
The nearest supermarket is about 3km away in Rimsting and is well provisioned. There is a nearby AGIP petrol station too.
Finally, as seems common for Bavaria in summer, there a lot of wasps and hornets around so if you're not a fan we'd advise eating indoors at cafes and restaurants unless you are at altitude.
This was a memorable stay in what was a stylish, comfortable and very tastefully designed cottage. The Sauna was a delight but that was not the highlight really as the overall ambiance of the place was spot on and made us feel extremely at ease from the moment we walked in.
Communication with Thomas was simple and efficient - any queries I had were immediately sorted and our arrival / departure was seamless making the whole experience a relaxing and enjoyable one. Thank you very much.
