Alsace : the rebirth of the René Lalique villa

Alsace : la villa René Lalique © DR

Built by René Lalique in 1920, to house his family next to his factory in Wingen-sur-Moder, this villa is experiencing a rebirth. On the initiative of Silvio Denz, CEO of Lalique, it becomes the prestigious setting of a new elegant hotel and gourmet restaurant. René Lalique’s creative genius is evoked in every detail of the six suites which are each unique in style and carry the name of one of the glass makers iconic creations, with the exception of the Zeila suite which owes its name to one of his grand-daughter, Marie-Claude Lalique’s creations. The villa’s fineness is taken to new heights with furniture from Lalique’s own collection and custom designed for the villa, from the crystal taps in the bathrooms to the glass walled restaurant which allows visitors to enjoy the grounds and the 20 000 bottle wine cellar. At the Piano, surrounded by a brigade of around 15 people we spot chef Jean-Geoges Klein. The restaurant represents a new challenge for the former head of the three michlin star restaurant L’Arnsbourg in Lorraine. Together with his team he has perfected various new menus : Création, Végétal and Signature. His cuisine, rich in colour and contrasts and as visually appealing as it is delicious is a “seasonal cuisine”. Do not let all this excitement stop you from visiting the nearby Lalique museum where, through numerous creations and over 230 perfume bottles, we see the true renewal that Rene Lalique brought to the jewellery craft. whilst an exceptional cinematic film takes visitors on a tour of the Universal Exhibition in Paris of 1900…
