When one thinks of skiing in Austria, it is a probably a picture of Lech that springs to mind. A chocolate box style village, incredible valleys views, and snow covered roof tops, make Lech famous world wide. A favoured winter destination by my European royal families, Lech is awash with luxury ski chalets, hotels, shops and some of the best on and off mountain restaurants in the world. The skiing is superb for all levels, and there is neighbouring St Anton to explore should you need more of a challenge.

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 have 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.
