Nestled in the foothills of Upper Bavaria’s Alps lies this ancient farmhouse, with a sprawling garden boasting incredible views over Wallberg: it looks like the scene on a postcard you might send overseas to showcase just how picturesque southern Germany really is. The best part? You get to call a corner of this oasis home for a while. And a stay here truly feels like you’re home. The relaxed-yet-spoiling atmosphere has been created by sisters Laura and Roxan who inherited the farmhouse, which has been in their family for generations, from their father.
Laura and Roxan were thrilled, and their love and passion for both the house and the region shines through. After a full renovation, the apartments combine modern design with regional flair and feel like spaces in which you want to linger. Local craftsmen gave new life to the building by upcycling furniture, the breakfast menu features regional produce, and the garden has been landscaped to provide space and a connection to nature. If you can bear to tear yourself away from the sun terrace, numerous outdoor activities beckon: hiking trails start on the doorstep, explore the numerous lakes or cycle through the valley. Whatever you do, a stay here is guaranteed to restore your joie de vie.
Introducing Laura and Roxan!
“We’re sisters, and the ancient farmhouse has been in the family for a couple of hundreds of years! So we are very happy - and proud - to have taken it over from our father.”
“To hang out in the garden, in the hammock or on one of the giant Fatboys, with a glass of local wheat beer in our hands, just enjoying the sun.”
