I stayed here for a week with my mum and wife in August and it was fantastic. The house was very comfortable and had everything you could need for an easy week of cooking at home, barbecuing and taking it easy on the balcony. The house has its modern parts and it's traditional parts but both blend in nicely. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the ground floor bedroom is particularly cool in the hot days.
The valley itself has numerous hikes that take you off into all directions as I found out. Due to the hot weather, we really wanted to swim in the lakes but the lakes around the house are not easily accessible by foot. Due to my mum's age, long hikes were not so possible. Lake Schiessrothried takes about an hour and twenty minutes walking from Mittlach centre, or if you drive to Gaschney it takes about 40 minutes. We didn't make it to Lake Altenweiher, as that was another 40+ minute hike. I think if you can endure the hike, then you deserve your swim!! The lakes that we could drive to were Lake Longemer, which was beautiful, but as with most trips it took about 40 minutes to drive there, but definitely worth it. Beautiful clean water. Also Lake Kruth-Wildenstein, which was okay, but a little murkier than Longemer.
There is plenty to explore in area. There is the market in Munster and the amazing storks that are everywhere, roosting in the rooftops. Colmar, is also a short trip away, and well worth a trip to see the lovely colourful houses.
All in all, a beautiful vacation in a lovely house in a wonderful location.
