Lech

Austria

The destination

Situated in the Bludenz district on the banks of the famous river of the same name, the exclusive ski resort of Lech is, in touristic terms, part of the famous Arlberg region but technically belongs to the lesser known region of Tannberg.

At 1,450m above sea level it isn’t a high-altitude ski resort by any means, though it offers reliable snow throughout the season, a variety of upscale accommodation and dining options that has seen it become a favourite resort of the Austrian royal family and other affluent clientele, as well as remarkably bright, sunlit slopes that are nothing shy of gorgeous. This is as breathtaking and picturesque an alpine setting as you’ll find anywhere in Europe and a great place to take an exciting ski holiday.

The Oxford Ski Company and Lech
One of our favourite ski resorts in Austria, members of the Oxford Ski Company have been staying and skiing in pretty Lech am Alberg since our establishment in 1998, with some of our more experienced team members travelling here for even longer.

As one of the leading specialist luxury travel agencies catering for upscale skiing holidays in Europe and North America, we’re well qualified to give our informed and impartial verdict on the village of Lech, its accommodation options and the skiing experiences it has to offer, and it ranks highly. So highly in fact, that we often holiday here.

Whatever you’re looking for in an upscale skiing getaway you’ll find precisely what you’re looking for in this charming and charismatic village that has grown significantly over the years, but has managed to retain its unique identity and the charm it boasts in abundant amounts with its numerous places of cultural interest, including the gothic style Church of St Nicholas.

Our Chalets
We’ve worked hard to compile a list of Lech luxury chalets and hotels that we believe offers something for everyone, from couples looking for privacy in luxurious surrounds, to families and large groups sourcing expansive, well-appointed chalets, available for hire on an exclusive basis and ideally located close to the action among white alpine surroundings and boasting unspoilt views of the surrounding mountains.

Of the many classy chalets that we have picked for you to select from, The Chalet-N is one of our most upscale and luxurious. So much so, that it has the distinct honour of featuring in the Luxury Chalet Collection 2014.15 as one of the top twenty luxury chalets that The Oxford Ski Company has compiled for our valued international clients.

In addition to The Chalet-N, which accommodates up to 22 guests, we have many other deluxe chalets for you to choose from, all of which of which have been selected according to our strict selection criteria that ensures you have only the finest, most luxurious and well-appointed chalets in the picturesque village of Lech to make a selection from.
