On arrival we were warmly greeted by Alfred. He quickly sorted us out with details of where to get our food shopping and a fairly local excursion to do for the remainder of the day,and we took him up on his offer of joining him and Lara the dog on their walk the following day. Having assessed our fitness, Alfred offered to be our guide to climb Grunten (the large mountain you can see from the apartment) and a couple of days later we puffed our way to the top. Throughout our stay, when we asked for it, we were given a wealth of information on where to go and what to see, and the best routes to get there, so we hardly had to look at any paperwork to ensure we got the most from our stay. Alfred has excellent english which does help. If you are not a doggy person (we are not) do not be put off, Lara is very well behaved and we found her excellent company on our outings. We were blessed with excellent weather so were not in much, but had we been stuck in a lot, the apartment is wonderful, and clean, with some english speaking channels on the tv, and several dvds available. The kitchen was well enough equipped for us to cook a full meal each night and there was the option to eat inside or out at the table in the garden. The only thing that we would have changed were the pillows, which tended to lose all their air and go completely flat. The bed was comfortable. Mary was unfortunately away during our stay, so we only met her briefly, but she proved to be just as lovely as Alfred, and they have been in touch since we returned home. I'm so glad we chose to go here for our special occasion holiday (a 50th birthday and our 15th wedding anniversary). Alfred helped to make both memorable and wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and we would love to return again. We toured extensively from this excellent base, visiting Austria, Lichtenstein and Switzerland. Our favourite trips were to Meersburg, where we took a boat to Mainau. Konstanz is also very nice. Do visit the kings castles, we made a whole day of it without going into them, so it only cost us the 6 euro for parking. For Mainau and Kings castles do take a picnic as the food places are very expensive. Fussen was lovely too, as was the drive there along the 308. I would love to do it all again :)
