About Martin Holborow

We are a British couple living at our apartments in Bavaria since 2005. After we bought our first house here, we found that we loved the area so much, we wanted to be here almost full time. So we were usually here to welcome our guests until Margaret became so ill we had to return to our UK house. Our local manager, Ulrike has been with us for a long time and is keeping to the ethos and standards we set up and is available during your stay to help out with questions, arrange tickets, book restaurants etc.

Sadly, Margaret died from her debilitating illness in June 2016. Martin has now returned to help Ulrike & Magda looking after our guests.

Martin Holborow purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Martin Holborow chose Bavarian Forest

We had a publishing company specialising in business information on Eastern Europe so we were occasionally away on business trips - the reason we bought property here was the convenient location, with Prague and Munich just a couple of hours away and Vienna and Frankfurt an easy half day drive away. We chose this location partly because it is lovely for holidays all year round, with plenty of snow in winter for skiing and walking in the forest and lots of things to do and places to visit in the rest of the year. While this is a holiday area, it is never really busy and crowded.

What makes this apartment unique

The clean air, spring water, peace and quiet and friendliness of the people are the joys of being in the Bavarian Forest. The National Park is so close to our houses, you can almost reach out of the windows and touch the trees. Our houses are in a small community on the edge of the village and this is country life as it used to be. The cost of living is also lower here than in the UK! There are some excellent restaurants in the village and nearby and it is great to be able to walk to them as well as to the supermarket and the station - the hourly train service to and from the village is a real bonus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay. You apartment is all and more of what you say. Germany, Czech Republic and Austria were all places we visited while here and we enjoyed all of them. What a slice of paradise you both have here. Thank you for all of the great advice and directions. Both restaurants you recommended were great. Thank you for being great people. Hope to come back some day.

Excellant Accomadations and Value

  • 5 of 5

We rented the first floor of House Peter and the apartment was GREAT! It had three bedrooms each with there own bathroom and shower. The apartment was in prestine condition and the kitchen was fully equipped.

Margaret and Martain are perfect host and are well organized. They provide binders full of information regarding activities and sights to see in the area as well as trips to take that are an hour or two away.

If you like hiking and the outdoors this is a perfect location. The entrance to the national forest is roughly three-hundred feet down the road and the trails are excellant. Great for biking too! The train station is about a 10 minute walk and we used it twice, once to visit Passau and once for Regansburg.

Margaret and Martain also provide a little store that has the basic essentials if you need them, food, beer, candy, and etc. They also provide in the apartment coffee, tea, olive oil, butter, and a few other items that you usually need for cooking but usually don't pack for vacation.

My family and I highly recommend this location and we all agreed this was the best place we stayed during our three week vacation in Europe.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Haus Sterr - just returned - and had a wonderful time. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. They even gave me a cooking lesson in our apartment! What a nice benefit that they provide breakfast your first morning. We would love to come back again during ski season!

A place for total relaxation, fresh air, and nature

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Bayerisch Eisenstein after our first stay two years ago with Bavarian Forest Holidays. Our apartment backed to the forest--beautiful views, fresh air and total privacy! We used local trains and busses (both free if you don't have a car with you!) and explored new places, returned to villages we've visited in the past--and had a totally spontaneous week filled with anything and everything WE wanted to do. Great restaurants in town. Lots of exercise walking to/from the train station. The proprietors (Martin & Margaret) are amazing hosts. The apartments are modern, clean, and have everything you could possibly need. Definitely sign up for their German cooking class where someone comes to your apartment and teaches you how to cook a complete and authentic German meal--it was the highlight of our trip!
