This was the top floor of the Steinbergers' home but with a separate entrance. The flat had everything you can want and was clean and tidy. The only single drawback is that there wasn't a shower, only a hand-held shower-head in the bath. But it is a great place to stay, quiet and with views to the Alps and maize fields.
Warngau is a village with a lovely bakery, ice cream shop, supermarket and pub, although while we were there the village was divided into two by roadworks - they were doing something complicated to the road layout so you are diverted through the lanes. You could walk to the rest of the village from the flat (5 to 10 mins) but to drive there involved a several mile diversion.
The flat was less than a 10 minute walk to the small railway station with hourly trains into Munich. Buy a Bayern ticket which costs 25 euros for person 1 and then 6 euros each for upto 4 travelling companions and that covers the train fare on local trains within Bavaria (we got to Nuremberg with the same deal) also all public transport such as buses, s-bahn and u-bahn so you can get around Munich as well on the same ticket. Taking into account parking and public transport we reckoned the Bayern ticket was the cheapest way for the 4 of us to get to Munich. (Coming home the train from Munich is in 3 sections. You need to be on the section that goes either to Tegernsee or Lenggries as the front section separates at Holzkirchen). Parking at Warngau station is free.
If you have a hire car there is parking outside the flat and easy access to major roads. Austria is less than 2 hours away and there are lakes within a hour. Munich was about 30 minutes, but there are major roadworks going on so could take much longer. Holzkirchen is 10 minutes away and is the nearest town of any size with a good selection of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. You'll need your satnav to find Lidl though!
We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend it as a base in Bavaria.
Such a comfortable apartment with everything we needed and more. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning and we were lucky just to have one day of rain.
Tegernsee is a very friendly and beautiful town. We enjoyed walking along the lakeshore and had a wonderful meal in See La Vie.
Walking in the hills and pottering on the lake kept us very happy for 4 days. We are planning a return trip already!
