Holborow Bavaria Apartments Amenities

For fans of the great outdoors, particularly walking cycling and skiing, this cluster of three traditional Bavarian forest chalets set on the edge of the pretty mountain village of Bayerisch Eisenstein are idyllic in summer and magical in winter, when they are a great base for snow fun and Christmas markets.

Rated 5-star by the German Tourist Board, and set in a small residential area, each house is split into several self-contained apartments sleeping from 2-6. As well as shared facilities including a sauna, mini-gym, games room, laundry room, well-stocked honesty larder and onsite massage/beauty therapist, each apartment comes with ensuite bedrooms, kitchens, lounges and useful gadgets such as dishwashers, microwaves, TVs, CD and DVD players, plus a long list of handy baby and toddler gear from buggies to books (see full list in grey box below). Most useful of all is the brilliantly detailed guest folder put together by British owners Margaret and Martin. They live on site and have included everything from suggested walking and cycling routes, to attractions, day trips to Prague and Munich, and even menus from good local restaurants translated into English. They also supply a generous welcome pack with essentials and plenty of ingredients for the first morning's breakfast, and can supplement this with a pre-arrival grocery shopping service so guests can relax from the moment they arrive.

It’s fair to say that a holiday here is magical for mini guests in winter or summer, whether bringing Hansel and Gretel to life with a walk through the 'enchanted' forest to the fabulous Schwellhaeusl (more info below) in summer, or frolicking in the snow and visiting with Santa at the local Christmas markets in winter. Parents will also enjoy the good local restaurants, relaxing with saunas and massage treatments and, Martin's famous Schnapps tasting night.... just don't plan a big skiing/cycling session the next day!

  • “We stayed in a 2-bedroomed apartment with a 9-month old in tow. The place is really well set up for an easy self-catering holiday - with everything you'd expect in a comfortable, clean apartment, but also the added bonus of the extra facilities available for the use of anyone staying in any of the three houses. We made use of the coffee room, the library of DVDs, the toy supplies, the little shop and the frozen meals. We were provided with a buggy, high chair and proper wooden cot, as well as a large selection of toys and other little things (like plug socket protectors) which made the holiday with a baby so straightforward. There are a good set of cycle paths in the national parks nearby, which meant walks with the buggy were in plentiful supply.”Review dated 19/12/2011

  • “We stayed in Bayerisch Eisenstein for the second time this year with our daughter (20 months old). The apartment contains all the equipment you need for a long or a short stay.”Review dated 19/12/2011

  • “Travelling abroad with a 10 month old baby was made stress-free in this apartment, with everything you could possibly need- cot, buggy, highchair- down to changing mats. A real home from home.”Review dated 19/12/2011

  • “If every place was like this, I would travel more often, having 2 small children (4&5) can make travelling a little difficult, but not this time, the apartment was beautiful, clean, and child friendly, it has everything you could possible need, you will feel like at home, this is one of the best places I have ever stayed at.”Review dated 19/12/2011
