This dream-come-true chalet is located on the footsteps of the idyllic Bavarian Alps, two hours south west of Munich. In winter, you park your car in the village of Riedholz at a small, fine ski lift and then walk leisurely over a snow-covered forest road up into the small refuge. The luggage is brought up in a snowmobile and who doesn`t want to walk, of course, can also be chauffeured up.
At a small clearing in the forest, you can see a wonderful property from 1730. The current owners, they live in Augsburg nearby, fell in love with the house in 2017 and renovated it with great love and skill to a modern holiday home with a total of four residential units and one large relaxation area with sauna.
The front part with the three apartments “Waldboden”, “Heuboden” and “Wipfelglück” has been designed a little more modern. The corridors are not quite as quaint as on a mountain hut, but the apartments have a lot of space. Inside, there`s a mix of traditional and modern, just perfect for a long weekend or a nice holiday in the mountains. Very important to know: The quality of the individual ingredients in the rooms is the finest. There are dishes from “Gmundner Geschirr”, an espresso machine from Nespresso, a modern open kitchen with everything you could want (toaster, blender, etc.) and lots of space.
The other part in the back of the property houses the largest apartment, which can sleep up to eight people. Downstairs on the ground floor is a quaint room with lots of old wood and a modern kitchen. And on the first floor, you find the individual sleeping rooms, very original and cozy and a spectacular living room, which one would also find in a Swiss mountain chalet.
Right on the doorstep, so to speak, are two ski lifts, the Iberglifts. These are exactly what families are always looking for: children love this place, a hidden gem with small slopes – one even quite steep – and the day pass costs no 73 euros (but 20 € or 16 € for children). The nice thing about this: You put on the skis in front of the house, then ski down through the forest path to the lift and return via a small forest path with the skis directly to the house. It does not get any better.
Families or larger groups looking for a place to recharge, love nature and value quality living at a very reasonable price.
From approx. 200 to 475 euros for the three smaller apartments, the big one starts at 660 euros.
Each guest receives a welcome gift with wonderful products, chocolate from Heilemann, olive oil from Italy, Lavazza espresso capsules and – we like it very much: A very much to be recommended tasting box of the Bavarian brewery Riegele with real craft beer treasures. (If you fall in love with the beer, you can directly ask the host and owner of the Ansitz Hohenegg, which is also the owner of the brewery).
