Nothing beats Chalet N for sheer luxury
You’ve coveted the superyacht, now you can dream about the superchalet and start making plans for next winter… Chalet N is possibly the world’s most exclusive ski chalet. Perched around 300 meters above the glamorous resort of Lech in the tiny, stylish village of Oberlech, it boasts one of the most sublime views on the planet—straight out over the majestic Arlberg massif. You don’t have far to go to reach the slopes: they start directly outside your accommodation; in fact, there are pistes where you’d expect to see streets. From this description, you can imagine that the skiing experience is out of this world. It’s also the heaven on earth that gave us the stunning backdrop for our fashion photoshoot.
What you get at Chalet N is eleven ultra-luxe suites and rooms that sleep 24, plus one of the most extensive spas of any private chalet. Then there’s the color-shifting swimming pool with its underwater sound system, and the adjacent deluxe sauna and steam room with the incredible Swarovski shower: Akin to bathing under a cascade of liquid crystal, it is guaranteed to soothe your aches after a day’s skiing. Evenings can be spent in the ice bar, or the wine and cigar cellar, or the cinema. If you’re after an authentic Austrian treat, there’s even a fondue room. And when it’s time for bed, you have a choice of seven varieties of pillow. Yes, seven. The 25 exceptional staff will cater to your every whim: your favorite artisan bread, an ingredient that’s hard to find, or an exclusive skincare product—nothing is too much trouble.
You know you’ve entered a rarified world when you start to feel as though you’re living in a movie—and certainly, the bulletproof windows elevate Chalet N to pure James Bond. As ski trips go, this is beyond comparison and unlike anything else you’re ever likely to experience.
