Make a holiday rental villa or property in Upper Bavaria, Germany your home away from home

Upper Bavaria is the most traditional area of Bavaria. Many visitors to Upper Bavaria flock straight to Munich, the regional capital, yet there is so much more to discover in the mountains and along the wooded valleys of the region, which often lie in the shadow of imposing, fairytale castles. Upper Bavaria is Germany’s southernmost region, extending from the towering peaks of the dramatic Bavarian Alps to the peaceful, wooded valley of the River Lech. This is certainly one of the most beautiful, peaceful and traditional regions of Germany.

                                                            Schöne Ferienwohnung. Super Lage.

                                                            Die Buchung bei Suzanne verlief unkompliziert. Wir waren mit einer größeren Gruppe dort und dafür ist die große Ferienwohnung ideal. Sie ist sehr groß und hat einen traumhaften Blick auf die Alpen. Die Kreuzeckzahn ist nah zum Skifahren. Prima war auch, dass die Wohnung perfekt ausgestattet war. Zusätzlich wurde auch sehr viel Wert auf Design gelegt. Von den Bädern bis hin zu den Möbeln. Wir haben in der großen Gruppe eine super Zeit gehabt...

                                                            Beautiful view from the property

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            Within walking distance of the lovely town of Ruhpolding. This property has been newly renovated and has been done with good taste and to a high standard. We had the downstairs apartment with a patio overlooking the hills, which was spotlessly clean. The only possible downside is the people from the upstairs apartment walk around the edge of the patio area - but this is very rare and gives you the chance to meet them! The owners are very friendly and helpful and give any advice you may need on the surrounding area. They also provided the local extra cards for us, which we were able to use for various attractions - we used it to get the cable car to the top of the mountain and then walked down, which took about 2 1/2 hours and we thoroughly enjoyed. It can also be used for train and bus travel. We loved Ruhpolding, but were also not far from Salzburg, which is also a lovely city. We like to think that we will be able to visit again as there is so much to do around the area.

                                                            Super property and very well presented great views

                                                            The apartment was perfect and we all had a great stay in Garmisch. The property was very clean and the owner was very helpful with our enquiries. The facilities were great as we had 3 kids so the 3 bedrooms were superb. The view from the balcony was amazing , and very welcome every morning.. So much to do , and the free bus is a 3 min walk away which was very useful. Attractions like the PartnachKlamm, Zugspitz railway and cable car, Ski Jumps and the Summer Toboggan were superb, not to mention the Alpspitz Swimming pool. The kids loved sledging on top of the Zugspitz even in Last August. Certainly going to come back, one of the best holidays the children have had.. I would highly recommend this property to any of my friends as it just suited us so well. Overall and unforgettable Holiday..Superb
