Relais & Châteaux

Relais & Châteaux, established in 1954, is an association of 580 unique hotels and restaurants throughout the world, owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs – most often families – who are passionate about their craft and deeply committed to forging warm, lasting relationships with their guests.

Established on five continents, from the Napa Valley vineyards to Provence to the beaches of the Indian Ocean, Relais & Châteaux invites people across the globe to savor delicious journeys, to discover the inimitable art de vivre engrained in each local culture and to share an incomparable, unforgettable experience.

Relais & Châteaux members protect and promote the wealth and diversity of the world’s culinary and hospitality traditions, to ensure they continue to thrive. They are equally dedicated to preserving local heritage and the environment, as articulated in the association’s Vision presented to UNESCO in November 2014. We're proud to have been called upon for association in 1997, in just our second year of operation.

La Route du Bonheur

Relais & Châteaux’s La Route du Bonheur—"the road of happiness"—described the journey between various manors, villas, and châteaux in France for a curated experience. We're pleased to invite you to experience our own Western Canadian adaptation through our Discover the Faces of Western Canada's Relais & Châteaux promotion.

The tradition of la Route du Bonheur lives on in Western Canada, miles from its French roots. Experience the rich character, charm and culinary excellence of our partners as you navigate between each distinctive property and its own enchanting setting.
