While Montreal and Quebec City are familiar names, you may wonder, why Charlevoix? Ninety miles from Quebec City is the Charlevoix region of Quebec. 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.

Upon arrival into Quebec City, you will need to take a taxi from the rail station to your hotel.
