Villa Rene Lalique

Recently opened in the French region of Alsace, the Villa René Lalique used to be the family home of the founder of Lalique, the iconic French crystal brand. The villa was built near the company’s factory--nestled on a leafy six-acre expanse in the village of Wingen-sur-Moder, an hour’s drive from Strasbourg. With just six suites, it's been transformed into a luxurious hotel decorated with Art Deco-inspired furniture and custom made crystal.

You’ll also find plenty of Lalique crystalware in the restaurant, helmed by the Jean-Georges Klein, previously at the Michelin three-starred L’Arnsbourg restaurant in the Lorraine region. One of the hotel highlights is the wine cellar, stocked with 20,000 bottles, some from the family of Lalique CEO Silvio Denz. Nearby, guests can explore the Lalique museum, designed by award-winning architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. The hotel project has been under construction since 2013, and since the hotel’s opening in September, there’s been much buzz.
