Lech, EIGHTY FOUR ROOMS most desirable winter destination, is one of the world’s best-known ski regions where snow is absolutely guaranteed. Yet it has kept the charm of a classical winter sports resort. Although Lech keeps pace with the growing demands of its friends, it still knows how to preserve the charm of its original character.

Sumptuous fabrics and furniture have been combined with antique pieces to create a very chic but charming Alpine home.
