Sports & Adventure Activities
We had a great stay at the farmhouse. The house itself was charming, cosy and roomy at the same time, but with all of the modern conveniences. Especially loved the library, and the kids enjoyed the games and exploring the garden. Sabeeka and Hans were terrific hosts - they had treats for us on arrival, provided help when needed and kindly set us up with bikes. The area around the house is just beautiful - rolling hill, forests, lakes - and a view of the Alps on a clear day. All in all a wonderful experience not to be forgotten. We wished we could have stayed longer!
Unterkunft mit Atmosphäre
Wir haben uns in dem sauberen und liebevoll eingerichtetem Ferienhaus sehr wohl gefühlt. Es fehlte uns nichts, insbesondere die Küche war toll ausgestattet mit Gewürzen, Tee , Kaffee....Unseren mitgereisten Austauschschülern aus Kolumbien und Neuseeland wollten wir ein typisches Haus mit Atmosphäre bieten, was sehr gut angekommen ist .Mit 6 Personen hatten wir ausreichend Platz. Aufgrund des Märzwetters konnten wir den wunderschönen Garten gar nicht nutzen, dafür aber um so mehr die Nähe zu München .Auch Kloster Andechs , Ammersee und die Königsschlösser sollte man nicht verpassen, kurz: das Ferienhaus ist ein optimaler Ausgangspunkt für viele schöne Unternehmungen mit sehr netten und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern !!

A lovely farmhouse with a lovely family
We really loved this farmhouse - big rooms, comfy beds and beautiful old furniture appropriate to the building. The garden was really nice, with trees, wild strawberries, herbs and spring flowers. Breakfast on the terrace in the sun was just so relaxing too. The children thought it was the best place in the world and didn't want to leave. But above all, Sabeeka and her family were inredibly helpful and friendly and made our stay brilliant. Thanks all!
Lovely house in Türkenfeld
It was an excellent stay. The house is wonderful and permitted us taking so much advantage of the nice area and the proximity of Munich. Thank you.
A jewel of a house
We had a lovely three days in this gorgeous farmhouse outside Munich. It is very pretty (just like the photographs!), well equipped and clean. The owners are charming and helpful and could not have done more to make us feel at home. We enjoyed a day trip to the city (easy 30 minute train ride from the neighbouring village) and two days in the countryside, exploring the lovely lakes nearby. We will definitely return to enjoy more of the house itself, especially the library and the gorgeous pool. We can heartily recommend it for a family getaway, and for a great combination of city and country.
Thank you for your kind words-you were wonderful guests and are always welcome to return for another holiday!
Superb family holiday destination
We had a truly superb time in Sabeeka and Hans' holiday house in Zankenhausen. We were made to feel extremely welcome on arrival and Sabeeka and Hans were on hand for any queries during the week. The house has enormous character and we very much enjoyed staying there. There is an enormous amount to do in the surrounding area - the Alps are a couple of hours drive away and afford excellent walking and breathtaking scenery. The castles at Neuchswanstein are touristy but well worth a visit. Closer at hand are several lakes, the closest being Amersee. These are again very pretty and in summer I understand there are lots of watersports on offer. It is very easy to get into Munich - there is a very regular train service from Turkenfeld which takes your right into the centre. All in all it is a great place to go for a family holiday and we thoroughly recommend it!!
Large 400-year old restored Bavarian farmhouse with natural swimming pond in gorgeous countryside. Situated on the south slope above the Ammersee with wonderful views of the lake and the Alps in the background. Besides the Ammersee, the 3 further lakes - Wörthsee, Pilsensee and the famous Starnbergersee- are close by. Various water sports such as windsurfing, sailing or swimming can be enjoyed here. Weather permitting, the smaller lakes are ideal for ice skating in winter. The Area is perfect for walking, hiking,cycling or just relaxing. There are plenty of cycling routes (maps are available in the cottage). A number of ski resorts in the Alps can be reached such as Garmisch, the Zugspitze, Mittenwald,Lenggries, Spitzing, Brauneck, Achenkirch and Leermoos.
The historic monastery and pilgrimage chapel of Andechs - world famous for its strong beer - is a 25 min drive away. Further beautiful churches such as the baroque church in Diessen are nearby.The location is perfect for exploring historic cities such as Munich, Augsburg, Dachau and Landberg or mountain towns such as Garmisch or Altötting as well as the famous castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Slightly further away but easily reached (by train as well) are for example the cities of Salzburg or Nürnberg.
The cottage is located 30 km outside of Munich. A train station is 2 km from the village and a regular train service can be used to comfortably reach the Munich city center.
