While Montreal and Quebec City are familiar names, the Charlevoix region of Quebec, located 90 miles from Quebec City, is just as lovely. There, perched on a cliff overlooking the St. Lawrence River, is Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu. Built in 1899 by the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation Company, it was and remains the only grand hotel in Charlevoix County. Majestically nestled between the sea and the mountains, it promises an unforgettable stay. You can busy yourself with any number of outdoor activities, golf, tennis, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, whale watching, cruise the St. Lawrence, be pampered at their new spa, or try your luck at their European style casino.
