125th anniversary of Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu

Charlevoix’s biggest hotel celebrates its 125th anniversary this year. Since 1899, Manoir Richelieu has been welcoming visitors to its iconic and picturesque holiday destination, located between sea and mountains and surrounded by fabulous natural landscapes, and offering breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River.

A destination in its own right

Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu’s diversified vacation offering appeals to sports and outdoor enthusiasts, with something for everyone and every taste: Le Petit Golf du Manoir, Canada’s most awarded 27-hole golf course, La Grande Tyrolienne du Manoir Richelieu zip line, a via ferrata, a vast network of hiking trails, bike and quad bike rentals, and skiing and snowmobiling in winter.

Its international reputation has been confirmed time and again. In fact, it hosted the G7 Summit in 2018. Bringing together the leaders of the seven member countries, this event played a major role in formulating international responses to global challenges.

A comprehensive program of celebration

To mark its 125th anniversary, a host of activities have been planned: on 15 and 16 June, the Grande Célébration du 125e (Grand Celebration of the 125th) will be a weekend like no other, with a historical guided tour followed by a spectacular evening event, and special packages. On Sunday, 28 July, the Grand Pique-Nique Gourmand by the river will delight every gourmet, with its elegant atmosphere and a table and guests dressed all in white. On Saturday, 26 October, the Manoir plans to relive its wild disco evenings with the Boogie Wonder Band – it’s sure to have you dancing to the beat of those hits of the ’70s!

Presented in collaboration with Cité Mémoire Charlevoix, in the corridor behind the reception desk, this digital tour featuring short audio excerpts about twelve pictures that recount key moments in the Manoir’s history, also incorporates augmented reality.

What’s more, every event at the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is designed with sustainability in mind. Which is why it is achieving all sorts of certifications for its green initiatives.
