A charming old farmhouse located in the small village of Berghof/Halblech about 9klms from King Ludwig's Castle Neuschwanstein at the foot of the Bavarian alps. The award winning home has been sympathetically restored, retaining most of its original character. Hosts John and Renata are most welcoming and a source of valuable local knowledge and suggestions for day trips around the area. Breakfasts were great and the old stable/barn area has been renovated to provide a cosy library area in which to relax and enjoy a wine after a day's touring. We stayed 5 nights and found it a good base from which to take day tours. Munich is about an hour away and we took a day trip parking at a park and ride station about 5 stops from central Munich for Euro 1.50 for the day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The core of the house is medieval and the house name Lippergüt’l originates from this period. Approximately 200 years ago the house was enlarged. We completely renovated the property where after it was listed as a building of historic interest. We won two prestigious awards for the restoration work and today the house offers some 450 qm. of living space wherein guests can enjoy an atmosphere of magical country elegance. Each room speaks for itself. The former barn is particularly impressive having retained it's former height and spaciousness where the elegant antique furnishings are shown to their best advantage. There is a library with a large selection of books also a piano for the musically inclined.On the ground floor of the barn is a conservatory style area where guests can breakfast, drink tea or simply sit and chat and enjoy a glass of wine. Here also are lovely views of the garden and surrounding countryside.However, words alone do not do the house justice. you must experience it for yourself! ... more less
