Virgin Holidays View
Perched high on a cliff at Pointe-au-Pic with stunning views of the St Lawrence River below, this world-class resort is more like a French chateau than a Canadian luxury hotel. Welcoming guests for well over a century, the Fairmont boasts a rich tradition of elegance and hospitality with beautifully-appointed guest rooms a joy to experience. An impressive list of facilities includes an award-winning 27-hole golf course, which will challenge even the most experienced player. Alternatively, head to Amerispa, one of the finest in the country, with a whole range of tempting treatments to leave you feeling on top of the world. Whale-watching and river cruises are also favourite past-times as is tennis and cross-country skiing if you’re visiting in winter. Two outdoor swimming pools are great for splashing around in plus there’s an indoor swimming pool when the weather turns cooler and a fitness centre with sauna and steam room. Whilst the adults are at play, the kids can have fun too at their very own mini club with treasure hunts just one of the treats in store. For gourmet dining, Le Charlevoix will please with its innovative cuisine showcasing perfectly local produce. Le Saint-Laurent offers a French brasserie type of menu whilst Le Belle Rive is renowned for its lavish buffets, overflowing with flavour. In summer, Le Vieux Club House serves the greatest steamed mussels in the region, accompanied by French Fries and a cold beer!
