Located in Alsace – France, the villa built by René Lalique in 1920 has been transformed into the sumptuous setting of an ultra-sophisticated hotel and gourmet restaurant. A showcase for Lalique’s craftsmanship and flair, Villa René Lalique offers six exclusive suites. The refurbishment and décor were commissioned from interior designers Lady Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli.
Chef Jean-Georges Klein, decorated with three Michelin stars, presides in the restaurant built by Mario Botta, the Swiss architect of international renown. Romain Iltis, the villa’s Sommelier of distinction from Alsace was awarded “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” in 2015 and “Meilleur Sommelier de France” 2012. He is in charge of the exceptional cellar – one of Europe’s finest – with over 20,000 bottles in stock.
In February 2016, a little bit more than three months after the opening, Villa René Lalique restaurant and Chef Jean-Georges Klein were awarded with two stars by the 2016 Guide Michelin. In 2016, Villa René Lalique also joined the prestigious Relais & Châteaux collection.
In May 2017, Villa René Lalique was awarded five star hotel status.
