Self-Catering in Style at the Alpen Club - Schliersee

When we first started to travel we discovered a kind of lodging very popular with British tourists: self-catering "extended stay" apartments in such places as France and Austria. The Alpen Club in Schliersee provides a great example. We've stayed here for a week, made our own breakfast every morning, eaten lunch or dinner or both "at home" as we wish, while enjoying spacious accommodations, scenic grounds, and an indoor pool and hot tub.

The employees here are all very friendly, including Marcel, a charming young bartender and waiter who wants to snowboard at Whistler some day.
