Star of the Slopes


Austria’s powder-blessed Lech used to be the place to go for luxurious ski holidays in the Alps, but nowadays there’s another place enticing the A-list — 10 minutes past Lech’s luxury hotels, along hair-pin turns, and up into stunning Oberlech. 


Location alone gives Oberlech the edge on its upmarket neighbour: it sits 1,750-metres above sea level, (and 200-metres above Lech), the snow untrodden, among calm and tranquil surrounds, with panoramic vistas of the Arlberg Massif.


Oberlech’s star attraction is Chalet N. Commanding a cool USD 270,000+ rental rate per week, it’s one of the priciest chalets on the planet, and it’s easy to see why when you arrive. Chalet N’s sizeable facade exudes glitz and wealth, and once inside you’ll experience an exuberance of glamour and ostentatiousness — the decor of the chalet elegantly combines the pure nature of the Arlberg with unparalleled luxury. 


However, it’s not just the fixtures and furnishings that show how sumptuous this chalet is. At ground level there is a mammoth lounge and bar, dining room and fondue room. One floor up are the chalet’s seven suites (complete with walk-in wardrobes, slope-facing terraces and Hermés amenities) and the pool room, and one floor down is the underground level which boasts a wine cellar and home cinema, and access down again to a spa, ice bar and pool.
