Modern luxurious apartment

5 of 5
What a lovely place. Spacious, warm, quiet and modern in a nice residential area. Fritz met us on our arrival and took time to show us around the apartment, explain how things worked like the door entry, the shutters, the appliances and the downstairs drying and boiler rooms. It is just a short walk to the gondola for skiing and also into the town. Would highly recommend the apartment and the owner.

Comfortable, spacious, and very well equipped

5 of 5
Our family stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas, and we could have easily stayed 2 more! Very comfortable house with lots of space and enough bedrooms/bathrooms for everyone. The kitchen was very well stocked and made meals easy. The friendly village is a short walk away with everything you may need and there are plenty of places to stop for a beer along the lake (even in the winter!). The views out of the front window were spectacular, especially the sunsets over the German Alps. The owners and local manager were very accommodating, even supplying us with Christmas decorations and special requests. Toys were available for the kids and lots of recreation equipment is on hand for summer activities. Easy access and very close to the mountains, Salzburg, Munich airport (1hr30 drive). Lake/beach is literally out front. Great vacation!!
