There were shops and restaurants within walking distance (bakery was particularly good) and S Bahn (train) service was only a short walk away with trains every 20 minutes throughout the day. Property was well equipped and there was a private seating area outside. Owners live next door and we found them to be extremely friendly and helpful in all of our dealings with them. They were doing some work to hallway and upper apartment during our stay - had this not been going on then we would have reviewed at 5 stars. We would certainly return to the wonderful city on Munich again and would be happy to use this accommodation again.

TV in every room was appreciated by those of us who didn't want to watch football (the European Championships were on). The patio has great views and was perfect for sitting out in the sun and we had two barbecues. The flat is within walking distance of the town (pubs, restaurants, excellent bakers, supermarket). There is lots to do in the town we went to the pool often (entrance free with tourist card) and some of us played disc Golf. This was an excellent base for our walking holiday with many walks available locally and only an hour's drive from Berchetsgarden, Konigsee and the Jenner. Samantha and Arne were friendly and helpful with excellent English.

                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                              This house was perfect for our family needs. Set on three floors, you can find privacy on the garden level, with a nice shower and sauna room and a little patio outside; get together for meals or TV while watching the sun go down in the living area on the ground floor; or choose from the lovely bedrooms on the upper floor. The kitchen is well-equipped and elsewhere everything you might need is supplied; the property was spotlessly clean. The town of Chieming is a short walk away, either via the lake path or by the road. The house is very close to the ferry pier, and to bike hire, and a couple of good restaurants. The bakery has delicious temptations, and there is a large supermarket. You can take the bus to Prien on the other side of the lake, a beautiful ride during which you can also see a few other small towns. Cycling is wondrous as there are marked - flat! - circuits through fields and woods. If instead you walk up the hill from the house, the guest house up there has very tasty Bavarian food, plus the walk past it is very pleasant, and you can cycle along that too. I thoroughly recommend this house as a perfect place to stay, in a beautiful and scenic location.
