About Pfaffenberger Augustin

A family that has stayed with us every year since 2008 says:

From the moment we first saw the website, we thought: Wow, what a beautiful home! Mediterranean flair by the Chiemsee with architecture that's detail oriented and lovingly decorated. We were fascinated by the Hagerhof atmosphere right away.

We already knew the area, wonderful! Instead of big city life, there is pretty much everything a family or even couples will enjoy: quiet, peacefulness, wilderness, clean air and a whole lot of things to discover.

The hill close by is perfect for a morning or evening stroll with the children. Mom and Dad can also take off on separately. One of them takes the children on a walk through the woods into Eggstätt, the other follows in the car and they all meet up for an adventure by the Chiemsee or in the mountains (!). In Seebruck, there's a Roman museum, in Truchtlaching there's the Castle Stöffling and the area is full of trails suitable for walks or hikes with a stroller. Older children might find a raft tour on the Alz or a visit to the Mammutheum by Scharam to be a fun adventure. But you can also just "chill" on the Hagerhof, as the kids say, and drive around on one of the Kettcars or sit in the sun and enjoy life. The buildings of the Hagerhof, the interior, the ritual of ordering bread rolls every night for the following day, the cats, the chickens, some small talk by the garden fence and the barn filled with hay (for jumping into, of course) gives everyone enough reason to enjoy life as it is.

It should also be noted that the Hagerhof radiates something that has enchanted us for many years and that we've only recently been able to put a name to: a sort of down-to-earth and discreet spirituality. The Pfaffenbergers accept people as they are and share the beauty of their home with their guests. Those who allow themselves to engage will enjoy a very special holiday. Our kids call it the Hagerhof Feeling

Pfaffenberger Augustin purchased this apartment in 2004

In our hands, the high-quality and traditional craftsmanship of the Bavarian rural building culture came to new life. The Hagerhof is the product of a perfect symbiosis between the client, the artists and master craftsmen.

Stay in exclusive holiday apartments with hand-crafted furniture made of natural, native precious deciduous trees.

Slip into your dream world in our fancy and cozy sleep worlds and enjoy our luxurious amenities with the extensive and modern technology we offer.

Unterkunft und Umgebung ließen für uns als Familie keine Wünsche offen.

  • 5 of 5

Alles sehr gepflegt und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Hat die fünf Sterne in unseren Augen absolut verdient. Wir waren nicht zum letzten Mal in Eggstätt bei Familie Pfaffenberger.

Owner's Response: Liebe Familie ..., vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Die Ferienwohnung Schmiede liegt im EG und passt sehr gut für Familien mit kleinen Kindern. Aber auch wenn diese größer werden, haben sie in den riesigen Doppelstockbetten leicht Platz. Die Terrasse auf der Südseite ist ein Traum. Gerne waren wir Ihre Gastgeber und freuen uns auf einen erneuten Besuch.

Was gibt's Schöneres!

  • 5 of 5

Zum achten Mal (!) waren wir auf dem Hagerhof. Die Luft. Die Farben. Die Wiese vor dem Haus. Der Morgennebel. Die Felder. Der nahe Chiemsee. Auf dem Hagerhof ist das SEIN möglich. Einfach herrlich und inspirierend.

Edel, hochwertig und sehr erholsam

  • 5 of 5

Ich kann allen Familien mit Kindern, diesen famlienfreundlichen 5 Sterne - Bauernhof nur empfehlen.

Die Kids (unsere Zwillinge waren 5 Jahre) sind überall gern gesehen (Stall, Trecker etc.) und auch uns Erwachsene konnte die moderne geschmackvolle Einrichtung der Wohnung voll überzeugen.

Die Wohnungen sind hell und freundlich gestalltet. Fast alles ist aus Holz und mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, bzw. angefertigt. Wir haben uns 7 Tage lang wohl gefühlt und den Kindern hat es auch sichtlich gefallen. Sonst würden sie nicht 3 Wochen nach Urlaubsende immer noch Kühe, Hühner und Trecker imitieren.

Großes Plus: selbst bei Regenwetter bietet der Hof einen riesiegen moderne Spielkeller mit jeder Menge Unterhaltung. Allein in diesem Keller könnten unsere Töchter 7 Tage Urlaub machen...

Außerdem ist man von dort mit dem Auto in 1 Stunde in München oder Salzburg, was auch nette Abwechslung bieter.

Fazit: in eine Jahr zu Hause schaffe ich es nicht ein einziges Buch zu lesen. Dort habe ich zwei Bücher geschafft. Den "Muuuhs" "Wau-Waus" "Miaauuus" und "Kikerikies" sei Dank!

Für uns war bei unserem Wochenende auf dem Hagerhof wirklich alles super: Gebäude, Sauberkeit, Freundlichkeit, Landschaft, Ausstattung, usw.

Es gibt wirklich nichts, was ich bemängeln könnte! Absolut empfehlenswert!
