Historic and exclusive ski resort in Austria’s largest connected ski area, Lech is among the snowiest ski areas in the Alps. Lech has a gentle range of slopes better suited to intermediate skiers, yet some of the excellent off-piste areas in the Arlberg are accessible. Excursions to the far reaches of the area, to small unspoilt Tyrolean villages, make perfect lunch stops - head over to Warth for truly abundant snow. The après-ski is more relaxed than neighbouring St Anton. Hotels rule the roost in the Arlberg and here is no exception, chalet rentals are available, guest houses and apartments present the third option.
Property for Sale in Lech, Arlberg
What about ski chalets and apartment properties for sale in Lech? Property ownership rules are stricter in this part of Austria, and as is the case elsewhere in Austria, rental is a condition of ownership by non-residents. There is barely a property ‘market’ to speak of and there are no real estate agents based in Lech. The occasional 1, 2 or 3 bedroom chalet or apartment property for sale may not have second home status. Those looking to buy here are better served by new developments; patience is required, strict planning controls means supply is limited; rental yields are generally pretty good.
