- This Chalet has been newly built in the Bavarian style using local wood over the Autumn and Winter of 2012/2013. The views are spectacular from every room and all the fittings and bathrooms are brand spanking new- but in keeping with the traditional alpine feel. There is a sauna and off road parking for two cars and a separate laundry room with washer and drier- also useful for drying wet hiking and ski gear.

The Meadow Chalet directly overlooks the Grainau meadows and the Zugspitze mountain range- the highest in Germany. Cross-country ski trails are on the doorstep and you can watch skiers and snowboarders on the Kandahar and Olympia ski pistes from the windows. The cable cars are a 2 minute drive, The Loisach river is 200 m. away. The Austrian ski resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald are also just 15 minutes by car. The paragliding school lands in the field next door. In the summer Garmisch is a mecca for hikers, bikers, climbers and canoeists. The Eibsee lake at the foot of the Zugspitze offers an idyllic mountain backdrop to swimming or boating. There are also great indoor and outdoor pools.Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a picturesque Bavarian town with many traditional restaurants, good shopping and a good night life. For history buffs, King Ludwig's fairytale castle Neuschwanstein is an hours drive and another palace- Schloss Linderhof a mere 30 minutes. Munich and Innsbruck are easily accessible
Other Activities: Rafting, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking,swimming in lakes and outdoor pools in summer, local farmers' markets, golf courses
Golf: There are three 18 hole golf courses- with spectacular mountain backdrops within a 20 minute drive- in Garmisch-Burgrain, in Oberau and also in Ehrwald in the neighbouring Austrian Tyrol.
Ski: Garmisch has two main ski areas- the Classic area which links the Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alspitz lifts and the Glacial skiing area up on the Zugspitze.
The Hausberg area is where most of the ski and board schools are based with a great easy blue and a magic carpet area for children surrounded by lots of great bars and restaurants. There are reds or a black down to the valley from here. There are fantastic runs with spectacular views for beginners and for advanced skiers. The Olympic downhill run and the World Cup Kandahar are blacks which could test even professional skiers and the lifts have all been updated recently due to Garmisch hosting the 2011 Skiing World Championships.
The larger skipass includes the Austrian Tyrolean resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald which are a mere 20 minutes by car. Without a car, it is a 15 minute walk to the lifts from the Meadow House- or we have a bus stop right outside the house.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Hello! I'm Suzanne. I'm British and grew up in Berkshire and when taking a break from my rat-race proper career in London ten years ago, I ended up visiting friends who run the Local Cure Irish Bar in Garmisch for a few months skiing and boarding. Like most people who intend on visiting Garmisch for a short break, I got hooked on the place and ended up staying! Garmisch not only has great mountains, skiing and everything you could wish for in terms of outdoor activities, it is also a really nice place to live- there's a good mix of locals and international residents who have moved here. After 10 years of being based in Garmisch, I still really want to help people make the most of their stay to the local area and really welcome enquiries about the area and planning your stay- such as how to organise a surprise paragliding flight that will land in view of the house, to recommend an english ( or german) speaking babysitter, how to hire a horse-drawn carriage for those special occasions! Just ask!
Why the Owner Chose Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany:
I used to be a property developer in Brighton- and couldn't believe it when the Garmisch estate agent showed me what is now The Meadow House. A building with potentially the best view in Garmisch- directly on the meadows, with no future worries about anyone building in front of the house as it is zoned farmland, great off-road parking and it was a scruffy disused office building and warehouse with bars on the very small windows! What a waste! Once the planning permission had been granted to turn the building into three luxury apartments, I couldn't wait to get started. Working with a well-respected local carpenter, we raised the roof in November 2010 to create the new all wood Loft apartment, knocked all the bars off the windows and put as much glass on the picture postcard view side as possible, adding a huge wooden balcony and terrace. We welcomed our first guests in the summer of 2011- and since then have had many repeat visitors which has been lovely. We really have had some truly lovely families and groups of people staying from all over the world, from the UK, Australia, Canada, Korea, the USA, Mexico, Egypt, Palestine, UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Italy, Germany, Turkey, The Netherlands,France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Portugal and Spain- Garmisch really is an international destination!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
In January 2013 we completed our latest project- a new, self-contained, 4 bedroom wooden chalet complete with sauna in the basement and whirlpool in the garden on the land next to the house- so sharing the same fabulous views. This means we can now accommodate another 8-11 guests in their own private house, attached to the main house.
