This is the second time my company used this property for our clients and again it was a wonderful experience. The property is located on a beautiful piece of property and is well maintained. Dragi our caretaker was great and went well beyond the call of duty to take care of all of my guests throughout the week. We will definitely use this property again should we have clients wanting to spend time in the Bavaria area of Germany.
This was a beautiful home set in a beautiful area of the country. There is easy access to the autobahn and isn't a far drive from both Salzburg and Munchen. There are a few close restaurants, one gasthaus just 1 km up the hill from the home that was DELICIOUS!
The home was very spacious and accommodated our large family very well. We noticed a small issue with the cleanliness of the home, specifically in the bathrooms and kitchen (primarily with the dishes and sink) but that has been addressed and I'm sure it will be taken care of for future guests.
The whole family (17) we were there for a few days end of December.
Very confortable house and everything was easy and nice.
