Lalique has turned company founder René Lalique’s 1920s Alsatian villa into a one-of-a-kind rural retreat that is all about luxurious details. The six suites are shimmering jewel boxes outfitted with custom Lalique crystal designs and Lalique Maison furnishings. Adding a touch of modernity, the Swiss architect Mario Botta has erected a sandstone-and-glass home for the resort’s dining room, where chef Jean-Georges Klein has already earned two Michelin stars.
Lalique founder René Lalique built the country villa in the early 20th century in the village of Wingen-sur-Moder, near Strasbourg.
The resort’s wine cellar—adorned with a crystal installation by Damien Hirst in collaboration with Lalique—houses more than 20,000 bottles.
In the lounge, cocktails are complemented by signature Femme Ailée armchairs and custom crystal carafes.
Guests of Villa René Lalique are minutes from the Musée Lalique, whose collection includes more than 600 pieces of jewelry, glasswork, and crystal.
