Located just outside the village of Omesberg, Lech Lodge contains the perfect, luxury holiday homes. Each chalet is equipped with a ski room, bio-sauna or private spa, an open fireplace, a kitchen and a wine cabinet for the ultimate relaxation.
These fairy tale chalets, located in the UNESCO Biosphere region of Lungau, are perfectly picturesque all year-round, be it in under blankets of snow or in the lush summer months. Arranged around a charming natural pond, each house is luxuriously decked out with a dining area, living room, an outdoor BBQ area, and much more. Saunas, communal showers, gym relaxation area and a wine cellar are also on site.
An architectural masterpiece, this surrealist structure is constructed almost entirely of Larch wood. Resembling the shape of a bird, soaring through the air, this cabin is completely unique – an intriguingly strange juxtaposition from the natural surroundings in which it lives. As well as being impressive structurally speaking, the cabin is decked out with luxury facilities, including heated flooring and panoramic views of the surroundings scenery.
