The Villa, built by René Lalique in 1920, represents the creative genius perfectly. Today it offers six exclusive suites and a refined restaurant that were designed by Lady Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli and evoke the genius of René Lalique down to the smallest detail. Each Art Deco-inspired suite is different and bears the name of an iconic design. Every bed frame, sideboard, bedside table, sofa and mirror is decorated with crystal, showcasing Lalique’s expertise!
I’m lucky enough to be in charge of one of Europe’s best wine cellars at the Villa René Lalique, which is home to incredible wines such as the 1865 vintage Château d’Yquem. Since it opened in September 2015, we have managed to build up a unique list of more than 60,000 bottles from all over the world, including 1,000 wines rated between 90 and 100 points by the renowned critic Robert Parker, including a hundred or so that have been awarded the maximum score of 100 points. The cellar is a real gem and is available for customers to enjoy at tastings or private or professional events.
In 1921, René Lalique chose to found the Lalique factory in Wingen-sur-Moder, which is why he also built the Villa there. All pieces are still produced here today, in Lalique’s only factory, before being sent all over the world. The factory is not open to the public, so to understand who René Lalique was and what he brought to the brand, we suggest our customers visit the Lalique Museum, situated just a few kilometres from our property. It is a wonderful opportunity to discover original creations from the master glassmaker and the exceptional work done in the factory today. Not to be missed
