Tucked away on a mountain slope just a five minute drive from the ski village of Lech in Austria is Severin* s. The Alpine chalet- style hotel has only nine suites and a separate residence, and despite being constructed using timber that’s more than 150 years old, it is extremely modern. The design is a mix of sleek Italian furnishings and cosy alpine touches, and the tech in the room includes Swiss Revox
sound systems and iPads integrated into the walls, for controlling the multi media and lighting. Each room has a real- log fireplace. The hotel’s restaurant serves dishes that look like works of art and the bar boasts a 14- strong martini menu. After a long day racing down the slopes in one of Austria’s largest interconnected ski regions,
you can relax in the indoor swimming pool or sauna area.
