Overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River in the picturesque Charlevoix region of Quebec, the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu Resort has the majestic appearance of a castle, its stone walls, turrets and green peaked copper roofs rising above the shoreline cliff. On entering this historic property, we quickly came to appreciate that “Le Manoir” is full marks for its 5 Star status – one of a handful of Fairmont properties to have achieved such a high international ranking.

In addition to two heated saltwater outdoor pools and an indoor saltwater pool, full equipped fitness centre, spa, lovely gardens and its own observatory for star-gazing; golfers take special pleasure in the 27-hole championship golf course at Le Manoir Richelieu. With most holes overlooking the St-Lawrence, it offers a unique and special golf experience.

The resort has 405 rooms and suites spread out over 5 floors and offering garden views or spectacular panoramas of the St. Lawrence. The Jacuzzi rooms facing the river have proven to be so popular that the initial complement of 10 was doubled to 20 during the recent renovation of the first floor rooms. The guest rooms have contemporary colour schemes, king, queen, or two double beds, HD TV and HD signals, wireless internet, coffee makers and all the conveniences that Fairmont refers to as their 24 Guest Essentials.

Fine dining is a key ingredient for a successful vacation, and Executive Chef Patrick Turcot and his staff maintain the Le Manoir Richelieu’s Four Diamond status of culinary excellence, led by the resort’s signature restaurant, Le Charlevoix. Chef Turcot has considerable Fairmont experience, having worked in the kitchens of Le Chateau Frontenac, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and Fairmont Hotel MacDonald, and Fairmont Scottsdale.

With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the St. Lawrence, the intimate Le Charlevoix offers gourmet cuisine in a romantic and elegant decor. In addition to a selection of A-la-Carte items that include beef, fish, fowl, and vegetarian dishes, Le Charlevoix is rightfully proud of their four and five course “Degustation” menus. Diners have the option of wine-pairings offered by the knowledgeable staff, who can also guide your wine selection for the A-la-Carte menu.

Dinner at Le Charlevoix is an ‘occasion’ and we recommend that you enjoy a romantic evening of fine dining and impeccable service. (If you’re travelling with children – the resort offers a moderately priced babysitting service.)
