This was the first time we went on vacation with our extended family and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. "Alpenperle" is spacious and has various outside seating areas with views of the Alps or alternatively a lovely meadow including grazing sheep :-). The house is tastefully decorated - think modern with a Bavarian twist so even on the few rainy days when we wanted to stay inside, we enjoyed our home away from home. The public indoor/outdoor pool is walking distance and so is access to the free shuttle train to the Zugspitze as well as Garmisch. The overall location in Grainau is perfect for hiking, biking, swimming and exploring impressive castles (Neuschwanstein, Linderhof). We would definitely come back!
