Originally built in 1597, this enchanting property was lovingly refurbished paying utmost attention to detail

Chalet 1597 is one of the finest chalets available to rent in Lech. The owners of the chalet have thoughtfully retained many of the original features and cleverly combined these and antique pieces with exquisite fabrics and furniture to create a very chic and charming alpine home. In 2014, this beautiful chalet was awarded as Austria's Best Ski Chalet at the World Ski Awards.

Located in the Stubenbach area of Lech, you can ski near to the chalet from the Rüfikoft ski area on a marked off-piste run.
