Lech am Arlberg, Austria
Snow has become a rarity as opposed to a commodity. Some low-altitude resorts had only little natural snow falls and had to survive on artificial snow on the slopes which took at least some of the ambiance away in the resorts themselves where nobody was able to walk on thick and crunchy snow. But there are some resorts which are in favor of the snow gods. Lech is such a resort. Even in Spring with temperatures up to 16 degrees you find decent snow even in resort to enjoy. Let alone in deep Winter when the snow is piling up several meters high.
Truly benefitting from this situation is the Residence Lech which is not only ski-in and ski-out but also one of the rare free standing chalet residences. Lech and Zuers are much rather known for hotel holidays or maybe some apartments. These 5 star chalets have it all. Luxurious suites with amazing bathrooms and great gadgets such as the fully integrated Sonos system where clients can log in with their mobile devices and play their own tunes from the first minute.
The attentive services by the private butler and the included breakfast and dinner are the cream on the cake. Each chalet has its own sauna and there is a fitness room shared by the three houses. Also shared if need be is a cozy bar-restaurant where groups can join for the meals. But of course the concept is full privacy in each chalet and all meals can and are normally served in the respective chalet's dining areas. Free Wifi, snacks, newspapers and a complimentary shuttle service to Lech center or Zurs are a naturalness here.
