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 :)

This is a remarkable and wonderful place. Our initial intention was to use this home as a base for excursions to the more popular attractions in Bavaria. But the region has a lot to offer in terms of daily activities for families. Alfred and Mary went out of their way to help us discover Allgau and were were truly warm and remarkable hosts. Alfred even had a flag of our homeland on the second floor balcony the day of our arrival.

The rooms are charming and spacious, perfect for a larger family. The property is very well kept and attractive, Parking our car was not an issue.

i would recommend this home in a heartbeat and without reservation,

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Alfred and Mary (and Lara the dog) for giving us the best holiday ever. The location of the house is superb, with stunning views and an absolutely beautiful apartment that easily accommodated 3 adults and 2 teenagers. The ground floor apartment is also superb. My brother stayed there with his girlfriend and what a great sitting room they had.

A perfect name for the house as we really did dine from the a la carte menu of the region. Lovely restaurants, excellent drives and hikes, beautiful scenery, and villages. Everything really is only an hour away. A real highlight was the cable car ride in Mittelberg. The view has to be seen to be believed.

Even getting to Munich by train was easy. A superb way to visit Germany's third largest city. A day wasn't long enough.

Finally, what can I say about our hosts. To say they make you feel welcome is an understatement. Alfred and Mary are the best hosts I have ever met. They cannot do enough for you and go more than the extra mile. Freshly baked rolls every morning, walks through the wood, organising train schedules, and anything else you want or need. They even have Wi Fi for the kids.

If you want a superb holiday, and see the best Germany has to offer, then come here. But be quick. There might not be any vacancies. Once you have been there you will want to come back.

Beautiful home in a wonderful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Alfred and Mary and their wonderful pet Lara, are the best host one can have anywhere. They made sure that we get familiar with their area especially the groceries, bakeries and other supply places that made our stay very convenient. Blaichach is located in a wonderful setting for hiking in the hills and mountains and along the lakes that abound in the area. The home is located in a stunning location with wonderful views all around. The pet Lara is so smart she immediately knew that we were guest and was very caring of us.

Our 5 days was way too short to fully enjoy the area and we intend to stay much longer next time .

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and spacious. Each of the bedrooms and the dining room opened onto a balcony with spectacular views. The apartment was in a quiet location, easily accessible and within easy reach of many activities and places of interest.

The hosts Alfred and Mary were welcoming and did everything they could to ensure that we had an enjoyable and memorable holiday.

We found plenty to do to keep a family fully occupied. We were particularly lucky with the weather and in addition to our other activities and visits went to the local open air swimming pool (an easy 3km) every day.

However there really is something for everyone. There was plenty for the more adventurous and also many places of interest for those looking for a quieter time sightseeing or visiting local towns, castles, museums etc.

We would not hesitate to recommend the apartments to any one and we definitely want to return. In all, a really great holiday in a fantastic location with kind and helpful hosts.

Beautiful view and breathtaking location

  • 5 of 5

Dear Alfred and Mary,

Thank you so much for such a warm welcome and making our holiday such a special and meaningful one. You both are two very gracious hosts and all the added touches, fresh cheese, bread and wine really did make our vacation a memorable one.

Each morning to wake up being surrounded by beautiful mountains and landscape is truly an amazing site you would not want to miss!

We will recommend this location to all our friends/family that visit the area and would love to return one day!
