Famous for summer holidays and it’s magnificent golf course, Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is offering special family packages this summer where guests stay in a castle and dine like royalty after an invigorating day of outdoor activities

The Charlevoix region is a world famous holiday destination, renowned for its art galleries, restaurants, whale watching and the panoramic views of the mighty St. Lawrence River. Charlevoix and the town of La Malbaie has been a favored artists’ location for decades. In the early 20th Century, wealthy families from Montreal, Boston and New York built magnificent summer homes overlooking the river. Le Manoir Richelieu was the centre of their social circle, and the resort was and remains the most impressive building in the region.

The 405-room world-class resort is designed and furnished in the style that prevailed in France during the period when Cardinal Richelieu largely dictated that country’s affairs. The Manoir Richelieu is a grand resort, with the grace of a bygone era combined with all the facilities you’d expect in a modern 5-Star luxury resort: state of the art fitness centre, a spa with 22 treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor heated saltwater pools, and even its own Observatory for star-gazing on clear summer nights.

One of the hotel’s biggest attractions are its 27 hole golf course and an adjacent casino. In 2006, millions of dollars were spent on upgrading the existing 18-hole Le Manoir Richelieu Golf Club plus the addition of nine more holes designed by noted Montreal golf architect, Darrell Huxham. With spectacular panoramic views of the Charlevoix countryside and the St. Lawrence River, this is one of Quebec’s finest courses that has garnered a host of award recognitions from some of North America’s top golf journals.

The Adopt a Beluga package includes; accommodation in a Fairmont Room, breakfast buffet at Le Bellerive Restaurant, a three-hour whale watching cruise on the St. Lawrence River, $10 contribution for the adoption of a Beluga through the GREMM, and access to Multi-Sport Centre and indoor and outdoor saltwater pools. All this for $379 per night, based on double occupancy.

The Summer Family Fun package includes: accommodation in a Fairmont Room, one family movie rental in the room, popcorn treat and juice delivered at the room, choice of rental equipment for fishing, mini-golf, tennis or bicycling per person per day a $50 gas card per stay, access to Multi-Sport Centre and indoor and outdoor saltwater pools. The rate for two adults and two children under 18 in the same room is just $249 per night.

We have visited this excellent resort, and can easily recommend it to families and couples.
